A very valuable career resource!
There's so much useful, actionable advice in this book; it's like having a really relatable, personable career coach of your own. Loved the worksheets and exercises for you to write in– I find that "giving it a try" helps me retain and process what I've just read, and lets me own it– as well as context and disparity between the "old rules" and the "New Rules." Not just what to do, but why, and how. Some of it should be obvious, but most of it's not– and all of it's vital.
The advice is really practical- they don't just tell you, for example, to negotiate; they show you how to, and break it down. There are examples of cover letters that have WORKED and risen to the top of hiring managers' pile, templates of emails to send, resumes for different type of jobs and levels, etc. Overall, there's so much actual advice that you can easily and effectively put into practice.
The book keeps you structured and very much on task if that's what you're in need of, but it's also written in a very conversational style, so while you might choose to jump between sections and focus on what's right for you (depending on where you are in your career or in your search), it's really easy and pleasant to read. Hits the right balance of straightforward/informational and casual/interesting.
I'm in the middle stages of my career, and it's totally relatable: there's so much here for me. I love my career path and what I do, but I'll admit that there's plenty for me to learn about negotiation, personal branding, how I can communicate effectively– I'm a bit meandering when I offer information– and how I interact with different coworkers. If I were changing paths or returning to the workforce, this book would never leave my side. As it stands now, it's invaluable.
