Dondi Scumaci hits the mark with Career Moves by weaving a mixture of solid career do's and don'ts with the compelling story a "Zoe", a young girl who views her job as boring and tedious and finds out her employer views her the same way.

The big take away of Career Moves is that to be valuable in your job, you must bring value to the job first. Sometimes it is more about changing who YOU are in the job, and looking for unique and innovative ways to support and benefit the others in the organization. By doing this, you become as asset to the company.

Throughout the book there are questions to ask yourself that will help guide you on your journey and help you focus on your own strengths, as well as networking and finding your purpose.

Career Moves is a must-read for anyone currently in a job and wants to be more successful, as well as someone who want to learn how to put their best selves forward in a new job.

Bravo to Dondi Scumaci for a much-needed job navigation tool!

"Career Moves" addresses the challenge of developing the necessary skills and action steps needed to meet changes taking place in today's work place. Career counselor, Dondi Scumaci, helps the reader recognize signs that indicate it is time for a career change, as well as a plan for how to reinvent the job you have into the job you want.

Using a unique format Dondi introduces Zoe. In the first chapter Zoe has taken an entry level position. Zoe relates her step by step strategy for developing the career she was destined for. Zoe becomes a composite character and a pattern for success. Dondi challenges the reader to build on their experiences, on the lessons learned, the differences they've made, how to leverage opportunities, and the importance of creating enduring value.

Although the book is directed to helping women develop their careers, the principles Dondi presents are equally applicable for anyone seeking confidence, success, and security during times of economic crisis and in a climate of staggering unemployment.

This attractive hard bound edition insures that the book will be a valued edition to the reader's library as well as a treasured reference for frequent visits for inspiration and motivation during the journey to career satisfaction and personal success.

Dondi's writing is bold. "Career Moves" is a high impact guide to breaking self-imposed limitations, determining a new mindset, to take control, and to maximize your strengths to accomplishing your fullest potential.

The world around us is changing in every aspect of our personal and professional lives. Our careers are a great example of an area where we need to re-examine our status quo to create the professional growth we want. In our changing economy and marketplace, we must take back our career planning as our own personal responsibility. If we don't do just that, we stand a good chance to end up with a career that limits our professional growth, stifles our learning and creativity and just plain limits our love of life.

In Career Moves, Dondi Scumaci has created the perfect every person's guide to managing your career and your future. From examining our beliefs about our professional selves and our career path, to suggesting actions to guide our careers more carefully to just plain 'how-to's' on top priorities for finding the best career path to match our strengths and loves, Dondi gives the guidance we all need to take back control of our professional selves.

Career Moves is a must read for all of us. Everyone will find valuable insights into focusing our professional paths to create happy and prosperous Career Moves toward our own success!

This book happened to be a valuable tool in my life at the moment I read it as I was unemployed so Zoe resonated with me a lot, and I am so happy for that as I have learned things I ever imagined-and have found out I was not so wrong in others when looking for a job (Been selective not for me but looking as if I could really put value on those opportunities I didn't take.)

This is a must read book and I think it should be assigned in high school. I loved chapter 5 as I love networking and masterminding, eventhough I am new on that, and how great it is that I can learn of this too with this reading. It is a very wide guide Dondi Scumaci gives us here, many important topics, as the law of value for example, brilliant people quotes and the public anouncements are just fantastic, I loved them.

I actually found a job and I did great in the interview as I got new perspectives of being an excellent employee. This book is a great manual for having success in our jobs.

I have learned about branding myself and finding what is that I have that distinguishes me. THIS IS GREAT.

I felt rejuvenated and inspired to go to the next level in my career after reading this great book. I was captivated from the beginning to the end. I thought Dondi Scumaci brilliantly shared valuable knowledge through the parable of Zoe, while also marrying her consultive thoughts through the story-line. I found her writing style quite engaging and enjoyable. If you desire to learn more effective ways of sharing your value and ideas with your manager - then you must read this book.
