Sick of Your Job?
Tired of IT? Worried about a recession? Or just hate your boss? Joanne Dustin
may have the answer. No, she doesn't have a bunch of openings for Chippendale
dancers or highly paid Hollywood assistants. Instead, she has a book that explains
how she moved from IT to another career: writing about how she went from IT
to a career writing and speaking about moving from IT!
The book is Life
Beyond IT: Open the Door, Your Future is Waiting. You can find it on
Amazon.com (or perhaps your co-worker's desk drawer!).
Even if you aren't considering a career change, I have a little advice: You
should be a pro, not just an IT pro. That means acting like you deserve a job
that's a level or two (or three) above where you are right now. Act like a pro,
dress like a pro and -- without being arrogant or pushy -- be a leader in your
group. Great jobs in IT and beyond may soon come your way. (Hmm, does that sound
like I stole it from a fortune cookie?)
