Details: Welcome to the new world of blue-collar work that is dramatically different from your father's or grandfather's blue-collar world. Representing 15 percent of the American workforce, or 22 million people, and occupying over 200 different types of jobs, blue-collar workers include relatively unskilled minimum wage earners to highly skilled individuals making over $100,000 a year.

While the job outlook for this group as a whole is not promising, nonetheless, many blue-collar jobs pay very well and have a bright future. Just call a plumber or electrician or take your car in for repair and you'll meet a new breed of well compensated blue-collar workers.

So how do you get a great blue-collar job? Anyone can find a job, but finding a really good job is not easy. Above all, it requires key job-finding skills, from identifying what you want to do to writing resumes and preparing for job interviews.

That's what this unique book is all about - helping blue-collar workers land rewarding jobs they really love.
