Get ready to relearn everything you thought you knew about what a successful career path can look like.

Today, unemployment hovers at a near-record high, yet 3.5 million American jobs remain unfilled. Why? Because companies simply cannot find people with the skills they actually need.

The good news is that this skills gap represents unprecedented opportunities for every person seeking a successful and exciting career. But these opportunities can't be found inside the walls of the traditional classroom. Instead, they lie in the myriad of educational options that provide the technical, vocational, and soft skills on demand in today's workplace, such as:

Professional certifications: Start your career faster in fields like bioscience aviation, culinary arts, and medical technology.

Associates degrees: Increase earning potential through inexpensive 2-year programs in subjects like civil engineering, environmental science, education, and nursing.

Apprenticeships: Earn while you learn under the direct supervision of a skilled expert. Far beyond the artisan trades, today's apprenticeships can be found at companies like Volkswagen and Siemens.

Occupational learning: Refresh or reboot your skill sets through on-the-job training or online education.

In Job U, you'll learn about these paths to rewarding occupations; where to find them and how to parlay them into the best paying job in any field. And along the way, you'll meet individuals of all ages who have attained their 'dream jobs' through a non-traditional education: from an emergency air paramedic, to a lead mechanic of a racecar team, to an engineer of complex gas turbine generators, to a bestselling cookbook author.

Whether you are recent high school or college graduate, or well along in your career journey, Job U will help you find your way to a more secure and prosperous future.

They have written more than 25 books based on their experience of what it takes to make careers work in today's rapidly changing and uncertain world. They were among the first to embrace the idea of people taking on the job of managing their own careers rather than leaving it to employers to do the thinking for them.

They have seen for themselves the richness and diversity of modern careers, and exploiting this richness and diversity to the full is one of the central themes in their work. They have written a number of other books in the Teach Yourself series.

The Sleepers / A Midsummer Day's Dream

Two trapeze artists swing from one end of the tent to the other spinning through the air tumbling and twirling as if they were swimming in an ocean so graceful. The audience looks on in pure childlike amusement mouths open wide in awe and near disbelief. What capabilities have they! to be moving through the air like acrobatic fish. Welcome To The Mind Of Marshall James Kavanaugh says a sign at the tent entrance. A man standing yelling through a megaphone booms, "Welcome! one and all!" There are many acts to follow: the lion tamers who boldly place their bodies within the jowls of those terrible African beasts, the contortionists who fold their bodies into unrecognizable positions, and for those with courage in their hearts, there are the grotesque spectacles of the freak show and the bearded lady, the man with two heads and the little wolf-boy. But of course! his mind is not limited to the fantasies within the tent, oh no, the genius of James Kavanaugh spills out to the travelling hands washing the elephants and the caravan full of gypsies predicting the future with crystal ball prophecies and tarot card visions. And even beyond the lay of the carnival de fantastique, the nearby city and village are astir with excitement and frenzy, the conversations in the cafes are spurred on by the pure absurdity of one man coming to town and popping a circus from his crown chakra. How can this be? they ask. Is it true? Have you seen? After prolonged hours and weeks of whimsies and delights, James Kavanaugh packs up his theatrics and the people awaken as if from a slumber unsure the source of their experience. Waking life? Sleeping dreams? He smiles and laughs and motions with his arms, this dreamer of dream laborers, writing his stories without a pen painting pictures with a sensuous language rolling off of the tongue, he creates beauty of madness and madness and love, the truest of dream poets, I am honored to open these pages for what is to come: brilliance, magic, and what is better than that? Simply said, and in all earnest, ready yourself for a truly authentic mind. Willow Zef Philadelphia October 2012
