The Career Chose Me

“As someone who ended up trying a lot of different jobs before finding my career, let me tell you that there is lot of wisdom in the author’s recommendations. I wish I had read [The Career Chose Me] before I went to college, it would have saved me and my parents a lot of time, money, and energy! A quick read and an insightful guide to figuring out your path, even if you don’t want to be in the film industry. Highly recommend.” -5 Star Amazon Review

Now What?: The Young Person’s Guide to Choosing the Perfect Career

“As a career coach, I couldn’t recommend a book more highly than Now What. This is due in large part to the Career Finder Toolkit. There is nothing out there like it. I’ve found it to be an amazing tool for my clients.

While there are some other very good career books available, they are supplemental to Now What and Lore’s earlier book, The Pathfinder. Even the best, classic career books stop at identifying Psychological Type and/or subject interest, which, while essential to integrate into career decision making, are only pieces of the puzzle. Now What? not only helps identify Type and interests, but also aptitude, a critical element to consider when figuring out what to do with one’s life.” -5 Star Amazon Review

Careers: The Graphic Guide to Finding the Perfect Job For You

“I’m glad I bought [The Graphic Guide to Finding the Perfect Job for You]. It would be great for any parent or guidance counselor to keep handy. The kids love looking at it. It gives them ideas on careers they may not have thought of, and if they have an idea of what they want to do, they can read about what kind of skills they’d need, what kind of education and training, what kind of pay range, etc. Format is very usable and quickly grasped.” -5 Star Amazon Review

Roadmap: The Get-It-Together Guide for Figuring Out What to Do with Your Life

“Seriously, a GODSEND. I am a recent college graduate who has an impeccable knack for screwing up her life in really stupid ways and getting away with it, only to feel guilty, confused, and lost most of the time. Add to that a cripplingly poor understanding of who I want to be and what I want to do, and you have a pretty worrisome 22 year old. I have been searching for a book that would help me see life and dreams and career choices in a completely new context, but I didn’t want to browse the “Self Help” section at Barnes and Noble, so help me.

“[The Shortcut To Purpose] is an excellent guide for students seeking to choose a career to pursue and for all those who might be changing careers or jobs. It emphasizes the importance of not only finding a career but finding “the right career” in which to invest one’s time, effort and energy.

The author also emphasizes that one of the most important things in life is to find a meaningful way to contribute to the world at large to become fulfilled and happy. [She] points out that there is more to life than just making a lot of money and becoming powerful and revered. It is more a matter of determining one’s core values and beliefs to find out what success is for everyone.” -5 Star Review on Amazon
