Second time reading this book & helps give a path

This book is for people that want to find a job they love and want to get up for everyday.

I read this book the first time, and decided to make a career change. I went back to school to get more skills and change directions. After finishing school, I let a personal matter force me into another career I didn't want to do. I found this book again, and decided to re-read it and make that change.

I am in the process of making the change, but this book helps uncover pieces that you might not have realized you enjoy or could be a future career.

We all tend to just get a job, whatever comes along at the time. This book helps you find a career that you love, and you can start building a future at.

Two basic, not for anyone looking for new insights for career changes

I had heard about this book and was excited to listen to it, it is a very long listen and I actually went through the whole thing, there were some decent nuggets of good information, but overall was very basic and most of the advice was obvious stuff that can be found by doing a simple internet search. In fact there are parts in which he talks about the internet as if it’s something new!! This book was written for 2018 with a 2008 (or older) mentality. Probably good for people that are old and have not needed to look for a job in 20 years, or for college students that are brand new to the workforce and are looking for an entry-level job, maybe. I don’t recommend this book if you already know how to do Internet job searches and are up-to-date with technology today
