Mary T. Greer ★★★★★

For me this is very inspiring. I actually shared this to my friends who feel like they are having a career-crisis. It's more like an eye opener.

anonymous ★★★★★

An excellent collection of different career building tips. Well worth the read, thank you!

So how do you take control of your career? For many of us, a career feels like something that happens to us, and we simply get by. But there are techniques you can apply to help you do more than just get by. You can get on and get ahead! How? This e-guide is packed with tips, advice and some great stories to help you find success in your career. In fact, it will help you to start Careering Ahead!

Preface

Most suveys into what employers want in their staff would result in a similar list. Employers are looking for people who are good at:

• Teamwork

• Communication

• Self-motivation

• Planning and organising

• Problem solving

• Decision making

• Time management and prioritising

• Flexibility and adaptability

• Willingness to learn

• Interpersonal and negotiating skills

Many people think the key to shaping a career is in developing skills that others value. This is important but it’s only part of the story. You should always remember that your career is just that, yours. This e-book will help you to think differently about what it takes to develop a successful career. It’s a collection of helpful hints, practical ideas, and insightful thought-provokers. Take some time to think differently about what work means to you, both now and in the future. Then think about how to get your career careering ahead!
