You're a member of Generation X - the 30-to-44 age cohort. And you've drawn the short stick when it comes to work. The economy has been stacked against you from the beginning. Worse, you're sandwiched between Boomers (with their constant back-patting blather and refusal to retire) and Gen Y's (with their relentless confidence and demands for attention). You're stuck in the middle - of your life and between two huge generations that dote on each other. But you can move forward in your career. In "What's Next, Gen X? Keeping Up, Moving Ahead, and Getting the Career You Want " Tamara Erickson shows how.
Tammy explains the forces affecting attitudes and behaviors in each generation - Boomer, X, and Y - so you can start relating more productively with bosses, peers, and employees. Erickson then assesses Gen X's progress in life so far and analyzes the implications of organizational and technological changes for your professional future. She lays out a powerful framework for shaping a satisfying, meaningful career.
