Your Next Move: The Leader’s Guide to Navigating Major Career Transitions

Career transitions happen; at some point, we’re all probably going to experience or actively look for a career transition. We could suddenly find ourselves leading a team of former peers or promoted beyond our current expertise. Maybe you’ve even been offered an opportunity to lead a company that is having some difficulties. Whatever your situation, Michael D. Watkins, author of The First 90 Days, has advice for you. Each chapter of Your Next Move breaks down a different type of career transition. Maybe you’ve been promoted to a high level at your company. You’ve got new tasks and responsibilities, but you also have to start thinking about your work differently. Watkins walks the reader through eight different career moves – for example, the international move challenge or the turnaround challenge – and gives you step-by-step advance on how to slide smoothly into your new role.

And, if you are expecting a career transition or need advice about general career counseling, make sure to call the Job and Career Education Center at (412) 622-3133. We offer career counseling by appointment, as well as resume review, mock interviews, and computer classes. Check out the JCEC calendar for more information!
