About this item

Now, more than ever, we are being asked to navigate career changes deftly and frequently.

Our economy is now demanding that we create dynamic careers based on creativity, innovation, and serving others. We are being asked to move from careers that used be based on linear, predictable ladders to trajectories that are now much more fluid and entrepreneurial.

Using anecdotes from her own experience and the experiences of the successful professionals, Blake provides a 3-stage process that will teach anyone how to: Identify existing strengths, interests, and experiences.
