    A must read to find your dream job

    Bhoopathi Rapolu has brought us one of the most provocative career books in recent times. In "The Race for Work" the author has exposed the risk with today's jobs due to the engulfing automation and created a how-to manual to escape it and find one's dream job. Section one focuses on the perils of automation and why our jobs are more at risk than we think. I have never thought that there is so much happening in this world today. In this section, he introduces the big 3 technologies: 1. Artificial Intelligence 2. Internet of Things 3. 3D Printing These technologies are the fundamental forces that can ultimately make humans irrelevant in this world because they can create things, connect them with one another and add cognitive abilities using which machines can think and act like humans. The big 3 exponential technologies are disrupting today's Fortune 500 companies and enabling upstart entrepreneurs to go from "I've got a new idea" to "I run a billion-dollar company that automates what big companies do." Your so called stable job in an established organization can become irrelevant overnight. In Section 2, he shares some of the rare career opportunities these technologies are offering to everyone who is willing to grab them. We think that automation is taking jobs, but it's also creating jobs and not many people are aware of them. Even if some people know about them, they may not know how to get into such jobs. Section 3 is all about what works in the job market today. Some part of it focuses on the psychology of the successful professionals and provides detailed advice and lessons. Successful professionals think differently. They have inserted themselves into the equation and have taken advantage of technologies already producing exponential growth. To get this mindset, the author tells us to think about the scale of technology growth while eliminating limiting behaviors. There is much more in this book. It is loaded with insights and usable easy-to-follow steps for making great things happen in your life. I have recommended this book to many of my friends already. Some of them have told me they could not put it down. It will inspire and serve as a handy reference when you go out and try to find your dream job.

    A great wake-up

    It covers a lot more about job hunting that the title and description would suggest. Gives systematic approaches that can help even the unemployables to roll up their sleeves and find a dream job if they put their mind to it. Lots about millennials too. Best takeaway: "one machine can do the work of fifty ordinary men, but no machine can do the work of one extraordinary man."
