DR. PELLER MARION'S 'CRISIS PROOF YOUR CAREER: FINDING JOB SECURITY IN AN INSECURE TIME' (BIRCH LANE PRESS) RELEASED SEPT. 1

New Book, A Guide To Workplace Opportunities, Launched For Labor Day
 SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Armed with the breadth of information from a newly available book, "Crisis Proof Your Career: Finding Job Security in an Insecure Time" (Birch Lane Press, $17.95), America's workforce will be better prepared for the many complex workplace issues affecting today's business environment, says the book's author, Dr. Peller Marion, a San Francisco-based executive outplacement consultant whose clients include Fortune 500 companies.
 The book's release coincides with Labor Day, the only national holiday honoring American labor, and will help employees make informed decisions regarding complicated workplace issues associated with corporate mergers, downsizing and workplace flexibility.
 "Today's workforce faces environments that are increasingly difficult," says Marion. "People encounter situations where they are expected to produce more with less. There is also a constant sense of uncertainty. More and more workers are asking themselves, `Will I still have a job tomorrow?' 'Crisis Proof Your Career' provides tools that allow workers to answer more important questions such as `What will I do if I don't have a job tomorrow?'"
 Based on Marion's 20 years of experience as an executive outplacement consultant and psychologist, "Crisis Proof Your Career: Finding Job Security in an Insecure Time" highlights the importance of marketability by using a variety of exercises that assess skills, attitudes and values. It helps readers "jump-start stalled careers," allowing them to make educated decisions regarding retraining in mid- career because of layoffs or job burnouts. The book also provides insight into the evolution of business and examines current workplace trends like the increased use of free-lance employees in corporate America.
 According to "Crisis Proof Your Career," not all situations require job mobility. With that approach in mind, the book provides many valuable tools for assessing workplaces. For example, Marion's "Ten Crucial Warning Signs" are red flags that alert workers to prepare for hard career decisions. "Are You An Achievement Addict?" is a test that monitors stress levels through personal behavior.
 "Workers are realizing the importance of incorporating their interests into their careers," Marion continues. "This book will benefit anyone who wants to improve their work environment, including: working mothers who desire more flexibility; individuals who prefer the quality of life in less urban areas and can utilize new technology to work from home; middle-aged professionals who are burned out and dream about switching to a more stimulating career; people forced back to the workplace after a hiatus; recent college graduates with questions about career paths and executives who want to maximize personnel resources."
 Based in San Francisco, Peller Marion Associates Inc. specializes in executive outplacement, career assessment and executive development coaching. The company uses strategies to assist displaced or evolving workers to survive layoffs, switch careers and improve work relationships and environments.
