As a blogger for moms, I wouldn’t have immediately thought to pick up “Displacement Day,” but my husband was going through some instability at work and I was reentering the work force albeit part-time. In short, we weren't a family in crisis but we were definitely in flux and feeling the uncomfortable funk of a new uncertain future. We were in desperate need of a friend or a lifeline. We found both in this book. I really enjoyed the anecdotal narrative of the author’s journey of getting [...]
Thomas B. Dowd III is no ordinary motivational speaker and author. He has learned his lessons the hard way. He suffered the ignominy of being displaced. His book Displacement Day: When My Job Was Looking for a Job, captures the shock of losing a long-held steady job with the painful and difficult task of finding a new job. While that is something many people have been through, what makes Tom’s case different is the insights and suggestions he offered as he tells his story.Displacement Day: Whe [...]
I gave this book 5 stars! This is my first time reading a book written by author Thomas B. Dowd III and I am now an avid fan of his - cannot wait to read his other books!!! This author took the time to document his journey through one of life's surprises - in this case, job loss. Every day we are all faced with this possibility with the worldwide recession still hanging around. Mr. Dowd's book is a must read for anyone - whether you are still employed or not (fired, laid off, quit). Knowledge is [...]
As the author of the book, it's easy to give it 5 stars. I never claimed to be objective in this case. I am including my own review for one reason: Because I'm convinced that anyone looking for a job, feels that their current job is a dead end, or are stagnant in their current role will find valuable insight to spark action for themselves. In the midst of an economic downturn, I was petrified the day I lost my job, but continued to muscle through the adversity to land in a better place. "Displac [...]
Tom has done a great job in capturing the process and preparation necessary to land that next career move whether it is a planned move or not! He has been careful to share what is needed from not just the job seeker's view point, but from what others expect from the job seeker, from the first interviewer to all those that you may come into contact with during your search.
"Tom has put together a magnificent book that will help you much more than just finding a job. The way things are broken down this wisdom will add much to your life. Personally I have been self employed all my life, so I have not had to deal with the difficulty of finding the right career path. But, if you are looking, you need to buy this book and read the words."
