There's probably no one who wouldn't find this book helpful, no matter their career or job status. Not everyone will go cover-to-cover, but there are sections of benefit to us all. The book takes first things first, focusing on self-knowledge as a foundation for finding and creating the "perfect career". It offers a rich array of tools to help in the quest, and points to a wealth of resources to help carry the search further. Carew has performed the service of organizing and amplifying the full range of questions whose answers provide the backdrop to any successful career and manages to not be the least superficial despite the wide angle through which "career" is examined.

Format: Paperback
This book can be extremely useful to anyone from high school age to senior citizen. Especially helpful to me were the boxed Insider Tips and the Least You Need to Know bullets at the end of each chapter. As a retired teacher I intend to use all the information I've gathered to launch my next career.

Format: Paperback
I am a consultant and career coach and am always looking for tools that will benefit my clients. This book takes the reader through a process of discovering themselves. The excercises and self-assessments are extremely helpful. The book helps you to understand what you really want out of life and out of your career so that you can make the best decisions for yourself. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is in career transition, anyone contemplating a career change, or to anyone who works with people who are in career transition.

Format: Paperback
Some of us are searching for the perfect mate, some of us for the perfect work. In this book, Rene Carew guides us gently but firmly towards the promised land of finding the best fitting career for each of us. It takes plenty of introspection and honesty, as well as determination, but she knows the steps to take. I found the book extremely welcoming and well-organized. You can proceed at your own pace, always working towards seeing yourself in relation to the great big world of careers. In order to find real fulfillment in work, we need to understand the "in here" as well as the "out there." This book enables us to do just that, and I am grateful for it.
