Book: One Person/Multiple Careers: A New Model for Work/Life Success

This new book from New York Times career columnist Marci Alboher revolves around interviews with individuals juggling multiples careers simultaneously. Alboher refers to this phenomenon as "slash" careers - as in psychotherapist/violin maker, teacher/fashion model, lawyer/minister, banker/rapper, and theatre director/computer programmer.

Some of Alboher's subjects developed a hobby into a career sideline while others have one career serve as an anchor to another riskier venture where the income potential is unknown. Yet others are parents who want to create a career flexible enough to accommodate the demands of child rearing.

Alboher includes advice on how to anticipate conflicts between one's various "slash" careers (e.g., does one combine both careers on a single resume, or prepare separate resumes?), as well as solutions to time management issues.

For those seeking greater fulfillment from work, the book opens one's mind to new possibilities. By learning how others have taken unique paths to career success and satisfaction, you can envision yourself achieving the same.
