John Lees begins by tackling the agonising debate that one has with oneself over the dissatisfaction with the current job.Then chapter by chapter he walks you through not just "The dream job!" but the practicalities of how much one must earn, what skills and personality one brings to the table for a potential employer.
The primary value in this book is that it's not a comfortable "get rich quick book". The exercises and thought processes that John takes you through are superbly designed to make you think through your options and your marketability to an employer clearly and truthfully.
The chapter (11) on creative job search strategies is particularly useful as it debunks many of the job hunting myths that persist. Other chapters deal with CV creation, using social media to find a job, attending interviews and even changing career.
As a coach and mentor that integrates senior executives into a new job I will be recommending this book as a "Must buy and read"
The advise on how to realize what your dream job is, is golden. It really helped me figure out what I wanted to do. I think that many people already know what they want to do but need help to be convinced to this. There are a lot of great examples to help you realize this and figure out your true calling.
Also the advise on how to get there is very helpful with lots of great techniques and things to work with.
This is a great book that I would recommend to everyone not happy with what they are doing at the moment. It might seem scary to take the leap but getting this book is the first step! My colleuge got a copy of the book per my recommendation but was afraid to start reading it. She asked my if it worked, and I assured her that it certainly did, to which she replied "thats what I am afraid of!". Do not be afraid get this book and follow the advise in it and you will be on a path to a better job that will make you happier! That is what I intend to do now..
In the meantime the experience of reading the book has taken me on a journey to assess a number of options for my future career. The immediate impact however brought about a strong desire to share the knowledge and exercises I'd experienced with other colleagues and friends in the same position, which has driven fantastic results for people around me, as well as myself.
This book will be particularly rewarding for people facing a cross roads in career paths as a result of life and career changing events where motivation and support is particularly needed, especially in the current economic climate. I recommend it to everyone I speak with when listening to their personal career challenges. Buy it..read it...and try it out for yourself!
