Is the chance to triple your pay worth more to you than a gold watch or a crystal paperweight? Gordon Miller, the author of this book, increased his salary by more than $100,000 in just five years. But he didn't accomplish this by staying loyal to one company. Rather, he changed jobs nearly every year. He says that you too can vastly improve your salary, earn signing bonuses, and score stock options and a flex-time schedule by following his "Big Raise" strategies.

Included in Quit Your Job Often are:

  • Tips on identifying hot industries and applying your skills to positions in those industries
  • Ways to build your reputation at work and market yourself within your company
  • Recommended Web sites for online job searches
  • Specific moves to help you make an immediate impact on the job--and make sure management notices
  • Advice to help you determine when it's time to move on to another job
While the advice in Quit Your Job Often isn't for everyone's stomach, it's certainly practical in these times of low job security. It'll be inspirational to anyone who's underemployed, has been laid off, or is otherwise in need of some career coaching--or for those who want to pick out their own gold watch.
