Riding the Rocket means managing your Modern Career. This is the only book in this genre that uses the unique concept of a Modern Career to guide people. It’s a practical ‘how to’ book, giving people the tools and motivation to create opportunities for themselves. People need to self-manage their career in order to keep working and this book is here to enable them to do so.

Like rockets, careers can be unpredictable, require fine tuning, need maintenance and above all need someone to control their direction and speed. We have to be to be proactive, resilient and adaptable and manage our career so that it works for us and gives us the working life that we want.

The working world is full of risk, change and uncertainty …and also opportunity. Compared to the static career-ladder approach of the post-war era, we now live in a Modern Career world where technology, globalization and economic rebuilding are giving people the opportunity to create and manage a flexible career for themselves. We can all choose to retrain, change industries, set up our own business, work as a consultant or create a portfolio lifestyle.
