Going beyond providing you with the tools, strategies, and approaches that you need to navigate the complexity of academic life, Don Haviland, Anna Ortiz, and Laura Henriques offer an empowering framework for taking ownership of and becoming an active agent in shaping your career. This book recognizes, as its point of departure, that faculty are rarely prepared for the range of roles they need to play or the varied institutions in which they may work, let alone understand how to navigate institutional context, manage the politics of academe, develop positive professional relationships, align individual goals with institutional expectations, or possess the time management skills to juggle the conflicting demands on their time. The book is infused by the authors’ love for what they do while also recognizing the challenging nature of their work. In demonstrating how you can manage your career, they weave in the personal and institutional dimensions of their experience and offer vignettes from their longitudinal study of pre-tenure faculty to illustrate typical issues you may have to contend with, and normalize many of the concerns you may face as a new member of the academy. This book offers you: • The resources, tips, and strategies to develop a strong, healthy career as a faculty member • Empowerment— you take ownership of and become an active agent in shaping your career • Advice and strategies to help women and members of traditionally underrepresented racial and ethnic groups navigate institutional structures that affect them differently • An understanding of the changing nature of academic work, and of how to grow and succeed in this new environment While explicitly addressed to early career faculty, this book’s message of empowerment is of equal utility for full-time faculty, both tenure-track and non-tenure track, and can usefully serve as a text for graduate courses. Department chairs, deans, and faculty developers will find it a useful resource to offer their new colleagues.

The Practical Guide to Building a Career in the Digital Age If Marc Miller could have seen the future when he wrote his first book: Repurpose Your Career, A Practical Guide for Baby Boomers, he might have called it Life As You Know It Is About to Change...A Lot. Since the 2008 economic downtown left many Baby Boomers unable to retire, Marc decided to use his own experiences to help others pivot to a career that would fulfill them for the next 20 years. In his second book, Repurpose Your Career: A Practical Guide for the Second Half of Life he addressed the fact that the people seeking him out weren't all Baby Boomers. Many in Generation X were also either dissatisfied with their careers or were being displaced by ongoing technological and social disruption. Repurpose Your Career third edition responds to another huge shift in work: In this age of disruption, digitization, and the gig economy, people need a new mindset and strategies to become continual learners, create their own flexible careers, and cope with ageism. This book helps them do it. Miller's Career Pivot.com has been listed as a top career site by organizations including Forbes and Career Sherpa, and his strategies for a career transition have been featured on Mashable, Life Hacker, Money, Flexjobs and Sixty & Me. His second book was listed as one of the best career books of all time by Book Authority. A "recovering engineer," who spent years working at IBM, Miller's own career journey started when his bicycle collided with a car, nearly ending his life. The experience changed his perspective on what he was doing with his time and launched him on a search for career fulfillment, leading him to jobs including teaching in the inner city, fundraising for a non-profit, and working for startups. He decided to parlay his experiences-and his engineer's expertise at breaking big tasks into manageable steps-into helping others find long-lasting career fulfillment. Today, though unemployment is at record lows for all age groups, employee satisfaction numbers have remained low. Everyone wants a job that's meaningful and fulfilling to them as individuals, but few know how to evaluate an opportunity for those criteria. Instead, they focus on things like money and location, not realizing that more impactful factors to their happiness might include how much time they interact with others, whether the role requires multitasking or single focus, and what level of emotional support they need. Complicating matters is the fact that entire industries can virtually disappear overnight and that many people will wind up doing a series of jobs and side gigs rather than having one long-term role with a single employer. Every worker-regardless of age--needs to avail themselves of every opportunity to learn and grow rather than expecting someone to train them. And they to look not for a role to fill but a problem to solve. Written with professional writer Susan Lahey, Repurpose Your Career, the third edition is not only an easy read but packed with practical information and specific action steps. It's the guidebook people in their 40 and beyond need to carry them into the next phase of life.

The how-to guide for your career In his previous book, Lose the Resume, Land the Job, author Gary Burnison exposed the myths and the ineffective thinking around how to land the job you really want. Now, in Advance, he takes readers through the next stage—advancing in their careers. Advance is extremely timely and topical in today's do-it-yourself career development world. Average job tenure has fallen to about four years on average and often only one or two years for younger professionals. These "career nomads" simply aren't around long enough to access career development from their employers. On the other end of the workplace spectrum, many employees find themselves stuck in one job without a promotion, without any raise to speak of, and with no opportunities to learn and grow. In Advance, Burnison lays out a mosaic of "how-to" advice that applies every day and at every level—the skills and behaviors that help people navigate their careers and stand out among the crowd. He takes on a "Top 20" of career must-haves: managing for the first time, engaging in the "money conversation" with your boss, dealing with difficult bosses (without quitting), coping with coworkers (without losing your mind), making presentations (that don't put people to sleep), mastering digital communication (and avoiding emails that will get you fired), thinking globally (without leaving your office), taking an overseas assignment, meeting senior leaders for the first time (without putting your foot in your mouth), navigating political waters (without sinking your career), reading and fitting in with the culture, and more. • Wisdom on taking your career to the next level • Career development tips • Guidance on being seen and heard • Written by the CEO of one of the world’s largest management consulting firms Whether you’re just starting your career, high up on the ladder, or “stuck” anywhere in between, Advance gives you the know-how to get on a path to where you want to go.
