"Losing a job is one of the most devastating events one can experience. For trauma, it ranks up there with divorce, loss of a loved one, or permanent personal injury, and it happens more often that one would think. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, approximately 50,000 workers are fired or laid off each day. That is over 18,000,000 workers each year. Moving Forward in Mid-Career is a guide for workers who have been fired or laid off and are in process of rebuilding not only their careers, but also their personal identities independent of a job title. By addressing the many aspects of job loss and job search, Moving Forward provides solutions for dealing with the challenges encountered at each stage of the rebuilding process, from the initial shock and humiliation to the difficult but rewarding task of rebuilding persona and seeking new employment opportunities." -- Back cover.
