By John Liptak, Ed.D.
Well over half of all Americans are dissatisfied at work and nearly a quarter of them, when surveyed, say that are planning to change jobs within the next year. The source of this dissatisfaction: jobs and careers that don’t fit with an individual’s needs, values, interests, and skills – that simply don’t fit with people’s sense of their own purpose and identity.
Self-assessment is key to finding satisfying work and managing a rewarding career. By looking inside yourself and examining your needs and values, interests and skills, personality and preferences, you can make better choices and also outline a plan for your entire career.
This book takes you on a journey of self-discovery that will help you find work you love and develop your career from start to finish. Each chapter centers on an easy, fun, and revealing assessment that guides you through the successive steps in the career exploration and job search process. The book includes assessments of:
- job satisfaction
- work/life balance
- career needs
- interests and skills
- work values
- entrepreneurial readiness
- job search knowledge
- decision-making style
- and more
Most importantly, Career Quizzes not only helps you discover a rewarding career, but helps you manage it as well. Each chapter contains checklists and activities to help you make the most of your results.
