Where the Jobs Are Now by Joe Watson is a career management book that could not be more important or timely in the current climate of recession and unemployment. In further recognition of the urgent and growing public need for this data, McGraw-Hill and Joe Watson have agreed to break with publishing industry practice and distribute Where the Jobs Are Now as a split release. The electronic version of the book will be available October 15, 2009 and the print version will be available January 15, 2010.
Where the Jobs Are Now is a one-stop resource and reference guide that breaks down growth industries and their roles in a clear, down-to-earth way for job seekers looking to embark on the next part of their careers. Most importantly, the book shows how they can quickly learn the skills they need in order to gain a long-lasting career via an extensive Appendix that includes training and job sites for each of the growth industries covered, as well as resources for fellowships, scholarships and grants that will offset financial investments involved in learning a new skill. In this way, the Appendix alone will be an indispensable resource worth the price of the book. For people urgently seeking to understand where the jobs are today and where they will be tomorrow, this book is simply required reading
