5.0 out of 5 stars No-Nonsense Approach to Finding a Job Fit, December 8, 2009
By 
This review is from: Backing U!: A Business-Oriented Guide to Backing Your Passion and Achieving Career Success (Paperback)
Thank you, Vaughan Evans! From the mind of a former economist comes...a book about boosting your career? Huh? And yet, it's this unlikely intersection between Evans' big-picture view of market forces and his very human approach to finding job satisfaction that makes this career book so interesting, useful, and compelling. This workbook-style book will help you figure out if what you're doing is a great fit for you, and if not, why not. Whether you're self-employed, as I am, work for a company, or are currently unemployed or contemplating a career change, Backing U! helps you identify your capabilities, your competition, and what's ahead in your market or industry that will have an impact on your ability to succeed, develop, and be happy in the coming years. You start by thinking of yourself as a business. Would someone want to invest in you? Why or why not? How can you make yourself more "backable"? Seeing myself as a business, and then working through the steps in this book provided me with a whole new perspective on my career. This book is particularly useful for people who have that nagging feeling that they're not living up to their potential, or that their job somehow isn't meaningful enough. This book will help you find your passion and drive. I highly recommend it.
