New Book Arrival!
In honor of my new book being available on November 6, I am pleased to share with you the press release going out next week. I hope that you or any of your loved ones going through a career transition will find this book to be filled with validation and inspiration as you/they navigate through this life-changing event.
Laid Off? Unemployed? Career Transition? Help Is Here!
With the growing number of corporations and small businesses adjusting to changes in a rapidly changing marketplace, more employees are being laid off than ever before. Layoffs and career transitions are major life events for anyone, especially for those who have been given the “white box” treatment—asked to leave their job immediately and without notice.
“After being laid off from a full-time job and given a white box to pack up my things,” says Michael Thomas Sunnarborg, author of The White Box Club Handbook: Simple Tools For Career Transition, “I decided to take those lemons and make lemonade.” For Sunnarborg—a best-selling author and transition coach—his lemonade became a handbook filled with poignant stories, powerful exercises, and simple tools designed to give hope and inspiration to anyone laid off, unemployed, or in career transition.
Sunnarborg’s handbook guides readers through a three-part transition process that teaches job seekers how to know themselves better, clarify their direction, and begin aligning themselves to their ideal career:
Part 1: Awareness. Now What? The focus of part one is the response to a layoff or sudden transition and how to survive and recover from the shock. Sunnarborg takes readers through the realities of sudden life changes and their impacts on emotions, relationships, and finances.
Part 2: Alignment. Get To Know Yourself. Part two focuses on strategies for stepping back, gaining clarity, and coming into alignment with the types of work best suited for the job seeker. Sunnarborg assists his readers with setting new direction and activating support resources including training programs and support for creating a killer resume.
Part 3: Activation. Make It Happen! In part three, Sunnarborg brings the reader’s focus to the practical and tactical components of the career search including networking, interviewing, and dealing with challenges along the journey. The reader walks away from the handbook energized, refreshed, and inspired to start creating the career of their dreams.
The White Box Club Handbook gives anyone recovering from a layoff or going through a career transition a toolkit of inspiration paired with thought-provoking questions and simple exercises. Print and digital books are available at michaelsunnarborg.com, Amazon.com, and other online retailers.
Look for links at: michaelsunnarborg.com/books on November 6 (mark your calendars!) and order your copies. In return, you will receive a powerful and transformational toolkit designed to help you or anyone create the career they’ve always wanted. Especially if you know someone who was recently laid off or in career transition, you can help them see that they’re not alone by ordering them a copy—makes a great gift!
