Format: Hardcover
What might sound like a series of clichés coming from a typical business writer could, out of reverence, be called "tapping into the zeitgeist" when it is presented by a bona fide guru. In a quick 156 pages (including a Frequently Asked Questions section), Stephen R. Covey and co-author Jennifer Colosimo work to overturn the ordinary ways people seek and acquire jobs. Like the authors of a diet book, Covey and Colosimo ask you to make healthy choices to shape your work's waistline. Choose a meaningful career, not a job. Think of yourself as a "volunteer," not an employee. Adapt to the "Knowledge Age" and leave behind the "Industrial Age." Use a job interview as a "research opportunity," and see a résumé cover letter as a chance to define yourself as the solution to an employer's problem. Granted, if you don't want to be told to change your paradigm, or to invent your own job if you can't find one, you might want to invest your dimes elsewhere. Then again, if you're tired of the patterns in your professional path, Covey and Colosimo's new career-seeking terminology might be just the jolt you need. Old habits die hard - maybe it's time for some new ones. getAbstract recommends this book to job seekers, bootstrappers, service industry personnel, Covey fanatics and all workers in a rut.

Unless you're absolutely sure you're doing the right thing with the majority of the hours in your day and week, please read this book as a way of looking in the mirror and making sure all is in good order. Think of this as a full length mirror, with three panels so that you can get a full 360 and really assess whether or not you're doing the right thing and not just busy doing good things.

4.0 out of 5 stars Could be more practical but worth a read 3 Mar. 2017
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The theory, mindset and concepts of the book is Excellent! It provides a positive light and Perspective to illustrate the right way to get a job.

However it's like 20,000 feet high, not practical enough. Its tools and examples are there but insufficient to implement the theory well.

I would recommend read other books like value proposition design, what color is your parachute or articles from the muse to complement it.

Overall it's a good book and the concepts is worth a read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible Career Building How-To! 4 Oct. 2010
By jfcasto - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I was confident that Stephen R. Covey would put together a good book, but this one really exceeded my expectations. My resume is so much more powerful than it was before reading this book. I have been invited to interview with every company that has reviewed my resume since I used the techniques in "Great Work, Great Career" to help me reform it.
