Model Letters

Model Letters For Everybody
By The Time Saving References
P 299.50

It is easier to express one's thoughts in the form of a letter than in any other way. This is because one is usually well-acquainted with the people to whom one writes, and writes very much as one would talk.

In letter-writing, one ought to be natural; but ease and naturalness should not be allowed to degenerate into slipshod English and vulgar slang. Business and official letters in particular, require more care and thought than social letters.

This book aims to help the reader express his thoughts with greater ease and confidence by providing a variety of model letters on every possible situation.

New Careers

The New Careers : Individual Action And Economic Change
ISBM 0-7619-5932-7
By Michael B. Arthur, Kerr Inkson and Judith K. Pringle
P 1,925.00

The New Careers offers a major new approach to the concept of employment and the relation of the individual to the contemporary workplace. It shows that our traditional conceptions of careers are rooted at the stable conditions of the Industrial State model which was dominant in the 20th century and that new models, better attuned to the New Economy of the late 20th and early 21st centuries are now needed.

Current data show that individuals are more mobile in their careers than would be assumed under established models. It suggests that far from having their careers determined for them by larger corporate forces, most people enact their careers, improvisationally, but purposefully, upon the texture of economic institutions.

In these processes, the traditional assumption of enduring symbiotic relationships between individuals and their employers is increasingly problematic. People enact their careers, and also help to enact the companies, occupations, industries, and society through which their careers unfold.

This book points to careers as actions rather than structures, as a means of learning rather than a means of earning, and as boundary-less entities rather than constrained ones. It also points to the return of the career as a key concept in social analysis, but shows that in the light of new phenomena, the 'career' as we traditionally know it will never be the same again.
