My Job : More People at Work Around the World
by Suzanne Skees


Overview -
What Does It Mean to Have a Job?

In book two of the series "My Job: Real People at Work Around the World," author Suzanne Skees profiles fifteen professionals from all corners of the globe, seeking to understand how our work shapes our lives. The fascinating people that Skees meets work in all kinds of industries: health and recovery, education and finance, agribusiness and processing, tourism and culture, and diplomacy and peace.

MY JOB explores the dignity, identity, economic viability, and inherent challenges of each occupation, asking such provoking questions as: How has the definition and notion of a job shifted in recent years? How does one land in a particular job, and what causes one to flourish or flounder in it? How does our job shape our sense of identity?

​As Skees explores how our experiences, interests, and views help determine the career we pursue and how the career, in turn, continues to shape our identity, readers just may discover that while the fields, countries, and cultures we work in are different, the intricate ways in which our work effects our lives are universal.
