What is disappearing today is not just a certain number of jobs, or jobs in certain industries, or jobs in some parts of the UK - or even jobs in the West as a whole. What is disappearing is the very thing itself: the job. In fact, many organizations are today well along the path towards being "de-jobbed". People will have to learn new ways to work and the second part of this book is a career guide to the 21st century. Today's workers need to look instead for work that needs doing - and then set themselves up as the best way to get that work done. The book shows readers how to start thinking of themselves as businesses - taking stock of their skills and interests, marketing themselves to their bosses, upgrading the services they sell. It discusses in detail how corporations, society and people's outlook will change in this jobless future. William Bridges is the author of "Transitions" and "Managing Transitions".
