Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Matching who you are with what you do may seem like common sense—but the sad truth is that most people don't have jobs that truly complement their personalities. Career Match takes you through a simple but revealing ten-minute self-assessment quiz to help you identify your specific personality type, then helps you:

 

• identify the type of work that will inspire and exhilarate you

• determine the kind of boss and work environment you need to thrive

• confirm the rightness of the path you're on—or help you find a better one

 

If the job you have doesn't leave you feeling exhilarated and inspire the kind of passion and satisfaction you deserve in your life, it's time to figure out which one will. Filled with detailed explanations of career options, and inspiring real-life stories of people who have found fulfillment in work that suits their personality, Career Match will show you how to find your true path to success.
