Jenny Blake, bestselling author of "Life After College "and former career development program manager at Google, shows how to move into your next career phase by leveraging what you already do well.
Now, more than ever, we need to navigate career changes deftly and frequently. The average employee tenure in America is just four or five years, and even those job roles often change dramatically within that time frame.
Our economy "demands "that we create dynamic careers based on creativity, innovation, and serving others. Careers aren't linear, predictable ladders; they're fluid trajectories that are fluid and entrepreneurial. No matter your age, bank account balance, or seniority, you need to be able to pivot into your next opportunity so you don't get left behind. Drawing from her own experience and those of other successful pivoters, Jenny Blake has created a four-step process that can teach anyone how to:
◎Identify existing strengths, interests, and experiences
◎Find new opportunities and identify skills to develop without falling prey to paralysis by analysis
◎Launch successfully in a new direction, while staying primed for the next move
This book is for anyone without an answer to the question, "what's next?." Whether you've hit a plateau in your perfect-on-paper job, you're considering taking on a new role in your current job, or you want to move to a new company or industry, one thing remains clear: career success depends on pivoting to Plan B (or C or D).
