Today, career reinvention is the new-and only-form of job security.

Until recently, most people expected to have one career with maybe two or three job changes in a lifetime. Now, experts advise us to expect seven or eight jobs with multiple industry changes. If you want to survive, you need the ability to transfer and repurpose your skills in a completely new direction.

In The 10 Laws of Career Reinvention, Pamela Mitchell shows you how your knowledge, experience, and skill sets can be adapted to a wide spectrum of industries and jobs, and provides the tools to help you navigate the full art of career change.

With ten clear, insightful, and practical “laws,” you can:
*Market your skills to anyone
*Transition seamlessly from one industry to another
*Find fulfillment in a career that fits you

From finding a vision to creating your action plan, The 10 Laws of Career Reinvention walks you through your own path to a new career, with success stories, workbook exercises, and actionable steps to start your new life today.
