San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) May 3, 2010
In the age of technology, the expanding landscape of the working world is more complex than ever. This is both good and bad news for recent college grads that are now exposed to more career options than they might know what to do with. After four or more years in their chosen course of study, many graduates find themselves at a loss when facing the decision of how to apply their degree, their skills and their personality to an actual career. How do you break the post-college, decision paralysis so many students experience?
Most career advice follow the one-size-fits-all principle. THE CAREER WITHIN YOU (Harper One, January 2010, $ 14.99) celebrates the fact that each person looking for work guidance is different. Readers benefit from being led on an internal journey where they are introduced to nine distinct career types. Elements of each of these in varying amounts are within us, with one being predominant. By the end of the journey the reader will be able to make realistic appraisals of themselves from which to make superior career choices.
This practical-yet-fun career guide employs the Enneagram Personality Assessment System- with its very sizeable audience- to find a career specifically tailored to any reader, by offering a quiz designed to identify their type, and thus, the best career paths for them. In addition, this guide includes quizzes and interactive exercises to both help the reader identify their own strengths, and practical job-hunting tools to launch the perfect career.
