A Book about Self-Coached IT Career Change

just-five-rules-self-coached-IT-career-change-ebookI am pleased to announce the publication of my new book:
Just Five Rules – Self-Coached IT Career Change.

It’s available as an eBook on Amazon Kindle, the iBooks store and on Kobo.
Visit justfiverules.com for details.

I am also working on a paperback version to be released through Createspace.

This project lingered on my ‘to do’ list for over four years because other things took priority, including b2b commercial writing gigs!  In a way, ‘Just Five Rules’ is a record of what I learned from spending twenty years in various IT roles and going through two career changes. The self-coaching aspect is a skill I regard as essential for surviving and thriving in a world where IT career longevity is now measured in years, rather than decades.

Globalization, offshoring, onshoring, outsourcing. These buzzwords speak volumes about how the digital communications revolution and the rise of the internet have affected many career paths. Robotics and artificial intelligence are also beginning to make their presence felt.

Of course, there are opportunities too amongst the creative destructive of disruptive technologies. This blog, and the freelance service business it represents, is one small example.
