Author, Nancy Miller says, “Your job search strategies require more than a well-formed résumé and a list of interview questions. The formula for a good job search is to know who you are, what you want, and how to express yourself effectively.” I can't say it better than that. Thank you Nancy for writing this engaging book, for sharing your heart, encouragement, and practical advice.

Questions/ideas to think about include, what are you passionate about? What is your preferred form of communication (written, verbal or non-verbal)? What are your strengths? What are your best skills? What type of job do you want (freelance, temporary, part-time, full-time, volunteer work)? Are you willing to update your skill set through training, online certification programs, a university course or degree, webinar or workshop? She delves further and asks one to think about all areas of their life using a holistic approach.
A wonderful list of characteristics, strengths, skills, opportunities and more are offered for the reader to describe oneself and begin the `About Me' section which is important in order to know which jobs one should seek.
For individuals seeking employment, looking to change careers or jobs, wanting to learn more about oneself and to update or create a resume, this is a great book!

The important formula that Nancy accentuates and explains is:
"Strenghts + Skills + Character + Opportunities = Career Success
Nancy also makes a compelling case for learning all the aspects of social media such as LinkedIn as a way to grow and advertise your profile.
In short, "Fire Up Your Profile" is an excellent resource for managing your career. It gives you the tools to lay out your path to career success by knowing your strenghts and passions which will open up new opportunities for you.
