Book Description (from Amazon)

What Your Boss Doesn’t Want You To Know is about career management from the perspective of the individual and what that person can do in this new, hyper-competitive global economy to ensure that he or she will excel in their career. It shows employees how they can tell if their job is likely to be terminated. It shows workers how they can turn this world of exploding knowledge, expanding technology, and an increasingly competitive global economy to their advantage so as to provide them with opportunities that will give employees a more prosperous economic future than they have ever had in the past.

My Thoughts

What Your Boss Doesn’t Want You to Know was an interesting read. It starts out by describing the global economy and how workers are not as secure in their jobs even unionized jobs as they once were. It went on to describe the decline in unions in the United States as compared to Europe and other countries, as well as the comparison of the unemployment rates now and during the Great Depression. Workers now need to invest in themselves through continuing education and read the current trends going on in order to keep up their appeal to US corporations.

I did enjoy reading this although it was focused on the US economy and I am in Canada. There are some differences but it gave me a good understanding of what was happening in the US. If you enjoy reading business books, this would be a quick and easy read. I found that it really didn’t tell me anything I didn’t already know but it was a good eye opener.
