Career Coach Jackie Jones Says It’s All About “Taking Care of the Business of You” When It Comes to Job Search

Career Coach Jackie Jones Says It’s All About “Taking Care of the Business of You” When It Comes to Job Search
Posted By: Neil Foote on February 14, 2012

It’s time for you to take charge of your career, and stop waiting on others, particularly during this tight job market, according to career coach Jackie Jones in her new book, “Taking Care of the Business of You: 7 Days to Getting Your Career on Track”.

Jones, a certified life coach, says she got tired of complaining and listening to her friends whine about why they were unhappy with their jobs, their lives and their futures.

“There are plenty of books that provide tips on becoming a more attractive job candidate, how to retool a resume, or how to look the part for a sought-after position,” said Jones, who has worked at many of the nation’s largest media companies, including the Washington Post, Newsday and the Philadelphia Daily News. “What they don’t tell you, however, is how to be as sharp on the inside as you appear on the outside. This book is designed to help you build the confidence to create a solid job plan.”

The 7-day strategy is built around an all-in-one, easy-to-carry textbook and workbook.



It is a great resource for young people fresh out of school and trying to map out a strategy, those recently laid off or bought out, as well as people currently employed who want to make their current jobs more fulfilling or translate their skills to another industry. Each day has a theme: Day 1 – Find Your Passion, Day 2 – Make It Work, Day 3- Stand Out, Day 4 – Just Move, Day 5 – Sell Yourself, Day 6 – Get Coached and Day 7 – Game Day.

“My strength - and my joy - has always been in bringing order out of chaos and helping people get or stay on track professionally,” said Jones, whose Jones Coaching, LLC, is a career reinvention firm that helps individuals redesign their careers and assists businesses with organizational and management development. “So I decided to become a career coach to help people gain clarity about their vision, eliminate obstacles to success and accelerate the pace of professional growth.”

Jones has faced her share of adversity, overcoming the doldrums of ****-end jobs and losing clients. But through it all, she has stuck to a basic philosophy: “If you focus on what you hate or fear, you’ll get more of it. If you focus on what you really want to do, you’ll find a way to do it.”
