You may have noticed the little golden seal that was recently installed over in the righthand column of this blog. The reason for said little golden seal is that Sherry and I just found out Working World is a finalist for the 2008 ForeWord Magazine Career Book of the Year—an honor that is totally unexpected and, I can’t really help from saying, totally freaking cool.
Our competition in the Career category includes a number of titles that look really intriguing, including but not limited to:
- The Nonprofit Career Guide by Shelly Cryer (it goes without saying that so many international organizations are nonprofits)
- Millennials Incorporated by Lisa Orrell (since this blog likes to tackle intergenerational issues, this book strikes me as particularly intriguing)
- Writing Your NSPS Self-Assessment by Kathryn K. Troutman and Nancy H. Segal (Troutman is well known for her federal career books—this one focuses on the Department of Defense’s new system for self-evaluating performance, and we cite Ten Steps to a Federal Job and her website, The Resume Place, in Working World)
Unfortunately the ForeWord awards aren’t like American Idol and you can’t vote for us at 1-866-WWORLD-07, but we’re unendingly grateful for your support, and your readership, nonetheless. Winners will be announced on May 30, so stay tuned…
