Reviews of: Do What You Are: Discover the Perfect Career for You Through...
A couple of years ago I was wrestling with a job that I was deeply unhappy with. I bought a number of career change books, and this was one of them. However, instead of listing through the usual suggestions like "take classes," "ask for a reassignment" or "look for new work," this book asks of you: what kind of a person are you?
Through a detailed personality test, this book asks where you lean in several sections. While at first glance the questions overwhelmed me ("so much work!" I thought), when I gave it a chance on the subway one day, I actually found myself sucked into the test. It's actually very enjoyable to answer the questions they list out, and even more exciting to see what kind of professions best match your personality type and strengths.
As I continue to grow and develop in my career, this is a book I find myself continually coming back to, and one I often recommend to others, as I've never had quite so much fun on a personality test.
