FROM KITCHEN TO CAREER by Shirley Sloan Fader


Email this review


Among married women almost half work outside the home and among all American women 48 percent are now working or actively looking for jobs,"" say the statistics (and this author). Here's a backbone reinforcer for them, including the results of interviews with over 500 women who succeeded in storming the job market after fifteen years or so in the supermarket. The advice, in sum: use your volunteer skills--publicity, fund raising, etc.--or your experience at helping your husband in his work to land a paid job in a related field. For good measure: a quiz entitled ""Do You Have the Successful Entrepreneur's Personality"" (if you did, would you need this?), lists of career alternatives, and the now-familiar list of government pamphlets to send away for. But the first chapter, entitled ""How This Book Differs from Other Get-A-Job Books,"" gives the game away--it doesn't.
