A Methodical Approach to Find a Career You'll Love

Would you consider the audio edition of Reinventing You to be better than the print version?

I enjoy listening to the audio edition. The narrator was very clear and pleasant. I usually refer to the print edition after listening audiobooks, so that I can re-read specific pages or references.

There's a self-assessment questionnaire in the appendix of the print edition that doesn't appear to be available to audiobook customers.


What did you like best about this story?

I liked the step-by-step framework that the book provides for finding and preparing yourself for a new career. This includes learning about how you're perceived by colleagues and friends, seeking out informational interviews and mentors, test-driving potential professions, and explaining your career transition to others.This book provides a very well thought out approach for anyone considering a career change, whether or not they know what they want to do next. Many relevant examples and best practices of how others have succeeded in their career transitions are provided in each chapter.


What does Karen Saltus bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

No, but she is definitely one of the stronger narrators that I've heard.


If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Reinventing You by Dorie Clark. Nothing wrong with the title, but then again I'm not a filmmaker.


Any additional comments?

A lot of very practical advice and a framework to bring it all together. The way that people prepare for and find their next job has changed dramatically over the past few years. This book brought me up-to-date on how I can use this to my advantage.
