ENUMCLAW, Jan. 10 /Christian Newswire/ -- The uncertainties of US economic factors, corporate downsizing and layoffs, and the cloudy future of Social Security assures that most of us will be a part of the workforce past age seventy. With the likelihood of a number of job changes ahead, it is imperative that smart career choices be made to reach occupational satisfaction and success. Thomas N. Ellsworth has provided a clear path to this goal in his new book, "The Rat, the Race, and the Cage."
Ellsworth states: “According to leading career counselors, Human Resources experts, and labor analysts, most of us will make a number of significant job changes... With that in mind, is there a way to ensure that our career decisions are the right ones? I say there is!”
Building on the models of "Who Moved My Cheese," "Fish!" and the classic "The One Minute Manager," Ellsworth goes a step further to provide a simple but powerful tool for making important career decisions by everyone – not just managers, sales persons, and accountants. Central to the book is a personal career compass that enables the reader to analyze themselves, the job, and the industry by means of simple Likert scales in order to un-muddy the waters surrounding career planning or prospective job changes. Written in an engaging, story-telling style that allows the reader to easily envision themselves applying the concepts, this is not a rehash or copycat of other books. Rather, it builds on the reader’s experiences and research, regardless of their level of education or career status. More information on Ellsworth’s career planning model can be found at www.ratracecage.com.
Thomas N. Ellsworth is COO of GoTV Networks, the leading producer of made-for-mobile television programming. Ellsworth also acts as mentor to MBA students at Biola University in La Mirada, California, a role in which he assists students with career planning based on valuable perspectives gained from his own career.
As today’s workforce approaches a retirement that is farther in the future than expected, a career planning tool as simple and effective as this, is priceless.
