Product Description

About the Author

Carmel McConnell is an ex-Greenham Common activist turned global corporate business consultant. She advises on how to build sustainable profit and have positive social impact. 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.

I didn't like this book. They were giving the impression that the catchphrase "un-ltd" would solve all your career problems. It's all a bit too trendy and superficial for me including stories about an artist in residence who has accompanied cosmonauts above Moscow. The authors are fairly young and quite proud that they have followed trendy career paths - there's not much angst, struggle and doubt. "What Should I Do with My Life?" By Po Bronson is a far better read.

By A Customer on 8 Dec. 2003
I'd been searching for that wider sense of direction and career path that neither the traditional careers advisors nor the bounding grad recruitment agencies seemed to offer me in their compartmentalised, corporate career paths, despite their volumes of glossy mags, embossed biros and enthusiasm for me 'as an individual'.
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.
