New book has some answers

[JAN. 10, 2004]  CHICAGO -- The economy and job market are rebounding, but with the rebound, jobs are rapidly changing and people are left wondering what move to make next. New jobs are taking the place of the old, and individuals will have to take initiative and reinvent themselves to get those new jobs. And what can they do to keep the job once they land it?

Authors Cyndi Maxey -- whose husband, Rob Maxey, is a Lincoln native -- and Jill Bremer believe there are steps individuals can take to rebound and re-energize their career. In their new book, "It's Your Move: Dealing Yourself the Best Cards in Life and Work" (Financial Times Prentice Hall, ISBN: 0-13-142481-5, $22.95, October 2003), the authors define how to:

  • Become an asset your company cannot do without.
  • Make yourself a job prospect that no recruiter can resist.
  • Deal yourself the cards to make every personal and professional move a winning hand!

Amy Lindgren, columnist for the Twin Cities Pioneer Press, writes: "Maxey and Bremer are two of the most optimistic, yet practical, authors I've had the pleasure to read in the field of career development. From the first paragraph of the introduction, they had me hooked."

Another reader noted, "Finally, a self-help book that makes you feel good about yourself!"


[to top of second column in this review]

Instead of presenting pages of just information and advice, the authors have structured the book around a card game, prompting the reader to follow a game plan and engage in questions, to-dos, and other actions in each chapter of the book. Whether you are a recent graduate, in between jobs, seeking a change, ready to retire or simply looking for a bit of inspiration, you will surely benefit from the pages of this book and be ready to make a move in your own life.

Professional speakers, in addition to being authors, Cyndi Maxey and Jill Bremer have presented to thousands of people. Their presentations and interviews are attractive and animated, as they give practical examples from the corporate, personal and entrepreneurial worlds that will motivate others to take control of their careers rather than lamenting over the latest layoffs. Maxey and Bremer encourage others to start planning their next moves in the challenging game of life.

Author Bob Nelson, Ph.D., notes that the book is "both reflective and practical; it serves as the best friend you always wanted that forced you to look in the mirror when you most needed to see the truth." If you are ready to make a change in your life and seeking some guidance in doing so, it's time you realize that "It's Your Move!"
