Product description

Review

Power Moves is an honest and brave manifesto on how to take control of your career and, ultimately, your happiness, on your terms.” (Reshma Saujani, founder, Girls Who Code, and bestselling author of Brave, Not Perfect)

“I’ve read a lot of career-advice books and this one really stood out to me. When you read it, you’ll feel like she’s a big sister, guiding you through sometimes tough and tricky career choices in a way that will make you feel like you can tackle anything. It’s clear that Lauren’s experience as the founder of Career Contessa has given her insight into what thousands of women want, and she delivers. Plus, she’s refreshingly candid about her own struggles at the beginning of her career. It shows that if she can do it, so can you.” (Claire Wasserman, founder, Ladies Get Paid)

“There is a certain type of savvy I thought couldn’t be taught, but Lauren McGoodwin is making her sharp instincts accessible to everyone. She is part trusted friend who knows what you’re up against, part professional guru who wants to help you realize your full potential. Power Moves is a practical, engaging guide full of actionable advice for navigating career pivot points. This book will change careers and lives.” (Alicia Menendez, author of The Likeability Trap: How to Break Free and Succeed as You Are)

Power Moves is an invaluable resource full of practical advice that will help you find the courage to pursue your next big dream. Lauren’s expertise will help you build your career on your own terms, and you will be inspired by stories from women who have made big power moves during the course of their careers.” (Fran Hauser, former president, Digital, Time Inc., and bestselling author of The Myth of the Nice Girl: Achieving a Career You Love Without Becoming a Person You Hate)

“If you are ready to achieve real success in your career (and life), this is the book you absolutely need to read right now. It’s the ultimate career book I wish my younger self had while I was navigating my career, negotiations, networking, and even self-care as a working woman. This entire book is a gem that all women need to read and share, as far and wide as possible.” (Bola Sokunbi, founder and CEO, Clever Girl Finance) --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

About the Author

Lauren McGoodwin founded Career Contessa in 2013 after experiencing a gap in career development resources for women who might be job searching, soul searching, leading and managing, or trying to find new ways to advance within their careers. With women accounting for more than 50% of the workforce and the workforce being less defined than ever before, it seemed crazy (and outdated) that a resource for us didn't exist.

Formerly, Lauren was a University Recruiter for Hulu focused on hiring, employer branding, and program management. Lauren has a Bachelors in Education from the University of Oregon and a Masters in Communication Management from the University of Southern California where she wrote her thesis on millennials and career resources.
