Whether you are just starting out and are looking for that first job to start you on your career path or you are considering changing careers in order to find a more fulfilling work environment, I can highly recommend "What Next?"
When you start reading the introduction, you will be amazed by the depth to which this book will take you. This is not a dry how-to-find-a-job book, this is about finding a soul-satisfying vocation. It is about finding work that not only provides a sense of purpose, but allows us to express our values, talents and strengths.
The two main ideas of "What Next?" include developing an independent attitude of being who you are by expressing your authentic self and acknowledging that a good job is a right, not a privilege.
Dr. Barbara Moses is a career expert who shows people how to uncover the core themes of their present jobs and find a career to help them become an expert in their field. She is known as a career guru, and her widely-read career column in the national Globe and Mail shows her deep love for career activism.
