Are you tired of the day-to-day drudgery of a job that has become tedious and boring? Are you ready to finally really change your life? Then make an appointment with Andrea Kay, a top career counselor who's on call to help you! No, you don't have to fly to Ohio, where Kay was named Best Career Counselor by Cincinnati Magazine. You can have a one-on-one counseling session with her by picking up a copy of Life's a Bitch and Then You Change Careers. Designed for career changers of every age, the book works like a series of sessions with Kay, as she takes you through the nine steps that will get you out of your funk and on to your future. The process begins with the reader doing some soul-searching to define a career objective that's based on who you are, not what others think you should be. The author then offers a methodical plan for successfully making the shift, addressing every issue from research and training to networking and interviewing to ultimately landing your ideal job. Along the way, you'll find helpful exercises and real-life examples of Kay's clients who have made the transition to a happier working life. Kay's personable writing style, vast knowledge, and years of experience make this life-changing book the next best thing to a trip to her office.
