Publisher's Summary

Strong, Wiser, Better

An essential guide for reentering, reinventing, or rebooting your career at any age

 So many women hit midlife and realize: it's time for a career change. Maybe you're yearning to try something new, or you're sensing that layoffs are coming and you need a backup plan. Perhaps you paused, or downsized your career to raise children, and you're ready to rejoin the workforce. How do you reboot, relaunch, return to, or reinvent a career at age 40? Or 50? Or 60? And how can you create a career and life that will provide you with purpose and financial security for years to come?

In Comeback Careers, New York Times best-selling author and co-host of MSNBC's Morning Joe Mika Brzezinski and her sister-in-law Ginny Brzezinski have teamed up to show you that career reinvention is possible at any age. You have the skills, experience and maturity; it's time to own them.

For this book, Mika and Ginny interviewed dozens of career-changers working in a variety of fields, from finance to academics to art. They share successful relaunchers' secrets to overcoming obstacles both internal and external, and their step-by-step processes and candid advice. They also reveal key strategies from top job coaches, resume-writers, and LinkedIn experts, tailored to the special challenges of mid-career jobseekers.

It's time to rewrite the narrative.

You are stronger, wiser, and better at the midpoint, and Comeback Careers is a road map to your career reinvention and fulfillment.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Critic Reviews

"An immensely useful blueprint for any woman thinking about a professional reinvention." (Indra Nooyi, Former CEO of PepsiCo)

"Whether you are running for elected office, asking for a promotion, or returning to work after time off raising your children, you need to know your power, know your value, and know your 'why.' Have confidence in what you have to say, in what you bring to the table, and have a vision for what you are going to do. This book is the guide to help craft your plan. Read it and know your power, at any age." (Speaker Nancy Pelosi)

"Women leave the workforce for many reasons, but they face a common challenge when they try to re-enter. This is a critical, empowering, and practical book for any woman who wants to jump back in the workplace. As Mika shows, you can be the author of the next chapter of your life." (Arianna Huffington, founder and CEO of Thrive Global)

Disappointed

The book speaks to a select group of women, mainly upper middle class managerial types coming back into the workforce. I'm a 50 year old woman who went back to school at 43 to get my degree. I was a restaurant professional before going back to school and I don't gage children. Small window into a huge subject. It's a shame the scope of the book isn't more inclusive.

Reboot your Career

Great guide for women like me who have been on a career break and are wondering or working on how to get back into the workforce. This book is a roadmap/how-to as well as a huge confidence builder no matter what your age or how many years you have been on a career break.

Great Book

This was so good. I went to buy the book at Barnes & Nobles and they were sold out but I was able to get the audible and it was great. Very good information and how to use the information given.
