Online PR News – 22-April-2013 – Washington, DC, April 17, 2013 – Bacon Press Books today announced the launch of In Search of the Fun-Forever Job: Career Strategies that Work by Ellis Chase.

Ellis Chase, one of Manhattan’s top career management consultants and executive coaches, brings his 25-plus years of experience and expertise to this reexamination of how to target and find a job that fits.

Who needs another job search book? Anyone looking for work or changing careers who wants to learn how to make smart decisions.

In Search of the Fun-Forever Job: Career Strategies the Work takes a fresh look at an old problem and turns some of the commonly held beliefs about job search and career management inside out. You will find answers to such questions as:

* Is the resume truly the key to a successful search?

* Isn’t it easier to look for a job when you’re employed?

* Won’t I improve my chances if I just put as many letters and resumes out there as possible and hope some of them stick?

* Should I take time off to relax and get my head straight before I start the process?

“No matter what your career objective is, Ellis Chase has developed a process that can work for anyone. In Search of the Fun-Forever Job offers more than a mere set of job search strategies. It outlines a strategic mindset that enables you to be proactive and targeted in your approach to career management,” said Mark Horney, Executive Director, Executive MBA Career Management at Columbia Business School.

Horney went on to say, “Whether you are seeking that first opportunity out of college or moving up through senior levels in your organization or industry, Ellis’s framework rings true. This is an essential resource at any stage of your career development process.”
