New addresses and phones, terminated job sources, newly–discovered job sources!

This Update Sheet can be printed from your Web browser by selecting “File” and then “Print.” Be sure to print out all pages.

Be sure to note these changes in your copy of the Professional's Job Finder.

Changes are listed by chapter and page in the current edition of the Professional's Job Finder. Continue to use this book until it is replaced in late 2007. Instead of publishing such a large book, we will break it down into four or five smaller books that are most specialized, such as the High Tech, Engineering, and Science Job Finder.

If you have discovered any other changes, discrepancies or typographical errors that scurried by our proofreaders, please email the corrections to the author at dl@planningcommunications.com. We will post these changes here and on the print version of this Update Sheet.

If you are tired of working in the private sector, you might want to get From Making a Profit to Making a Difference: How to Launch Your New Career in Nonprofits. It’s the perfect resource for moving from the private sector to the nonprofit sector. Visit the “Nonprofits” section of our Job Quest Catalog Online to get more details.
