Automotive Journalist Addresses Life After Job Loss
Wild Rose, WI... The phrase “job security” is almost an oxymoron these days, provoking wistful smiles, frowns, or smirks over frequent news reports of company downsizings and relocations. People are being forced out of jobs and into career changes or early retirement in near record numbers.
In her new book “Lost Your Job? Now What!” Terry Kohl takes what most people see as a depressing, negative situation and shows them how losing a job can change their lives for the best. Practical advice and take-action-tools are woven throughout this upbeat 116-page book. Kohl has created a clear, precise roadmap with reassuring rest stops to the perfect next career move after a job loss.
“In Fall 2006 I was awestruck at the number of people losing their jobs,” Kohl said. “In 2006, the state of Michigan alone lost 53,000 jobs and is expected to lose another 43,000 this year. I wanted to provide guidance and support for people who were being forced to change their work lives.”
Since September 2006, the jobless rate has ranged from 4.4 to 4.6 percent. As of June 2, 2007, the official unemployment rate—which does not take into account those who have given up looking for work— remained at 4.5 percent.
“There are jobs out there” Kohl went on to say. “The 12 Days of Power program in my book consists of life-empowering tools that provide practical, straightforward help to people who are out of work. Along with those tools are practices that focus on lifting spirits, helping to heal those job-loss wounds, and encouraging readers to co-create the job circumstances they have always wanted to have.”
Early reviewers are heaping praise upon Kohl’s approach to job and life changes.
"Ms. Kohl’s E-book is a thoughtful, well-organized guide to landing the perfect job. Each of the 12 Days of Power outlines ideas and action steps that will turn your dream job into a real possibility. This book will help you clarify the job that best suits your skill set, and help you live a more successful life," said Tim Thalman, senior vice president for Aon Risk Services, Inc., a leading provider of risk management services, insurance and specialty insurance underwriting.
Mike Parris, automotive author and president of Parris Communications, had this comment: “Ms. Kohl isn’t into sugar coating the subject but shows the reader how he or she can move on quickly and get excited about spending the rest of his or her life doing something they actually love; not just passing time to get a paycheck. Her perspective and insight on the subject of career change is refreshing and almost makes me want to change jobs – and I already like what I do!”
“Proven marketing techniques combined with real-life stories and encouragement creates a book that feels as if it were written just for you,” Dr. Kenneth Thompson, president and senior HRD consultant for Thompson & Associates Consulting, LLC, said. “Although many authors write motivational works, it is rare to read something that makes you feel that it was written just for you. Ms. Kohl makes the reader feel as though you are a personal friend, ready and willing to help during a life-altering crisis. ‘Lost Your Job? Now What!’ will definitely assist many of my clients, and will become a standard reference and resource with Thompson & Associates Consulting, LLC.”
