Riassunto: She'd had an exciting and award-winning career. Then, like so many others, Karla Halbakken was laid-off after the company for which she worked was acquired. Armed with a great resume, she hit the road in search of the next rung on her career ladder - or perhaps even a new ladder. After years of again and again "pulling herself by her boot straps," the grueling search for steady employment began to take its toll. Her straps began to fray. Then they broke. She then began wrapping them with duct tape. Job application after interview after rejection letter after disappointment, she tried everything but no amount of networking provided her with an offer - much less one she could refuse. "Duct Tape for My Boot Straps" chronicles the frustration, tactics, and strange but true stories Karla endured during her new career search. In this sometimes funny, often insightful, and all too true book, you'll learn how one woman didn't give up...even when her boot straps did.
