Disaster-Proof Your Career looks at an aspect of what might be called active career management, at what makes the process manageable, and what makes it effective. If you want to become - or remain - successful, inaction is simply not an option. This essential guide gives tips on how to become secure in your existing job and role, advice on how to take on new challenges and appear an asset to your organisation, guidance on how to be desirable in the job market if you choose to move on to another employer and pointers on how to obtain fair and satisfactory rewards for what you do.
