Her first book Change Activist (momentum) has been internationally well-received for showing how you can have profit and principles. She is based in London and divides her time between the Magic Sandwich (a child poverty charity she founded in 2001), writing and consulting.Jonathan Robinson is a founder member of World Voices, a global organisation of young people who share similar values and who are exploring the alternatives to our unjust and unsustainable forms of progress, wealth and power. He exemplifies a growing trend in recent graduates who don't want to automatically follow the traditional milkround path straight into a big corporate, but who want to explore all career and life options to find the right avenue that fits their principles as well as their need to earn.

Then a friend pointed me in the direction of Careers Un-ltd, which stated that 'This book is for you if you feel underwhelmed by your career options'. Definitely me.
After a 3 minute flick through I ordered a copy, and, on its arrival, read it over a couple of days (the last book I read took over a year - (so many other things in life on), but with this book, this was needed, right then. A good move.
You must be familiar with all of those words commonly bounded around in praising book reviews - inspiring, exciting, motivating, smile-inducing - well, Careers Un-ltd fulfilled them. It gave me the excitement and direction that our University Careers Centre didn't, and faith in my sometimes seemingly idealistic ideas for the vocation that 'deserves your energy and passion for half your waking life' .
So, in a nutshell, I thoroughly recommend Careers un-ltd. Enjoy.
