The quintessential guide to kick-starting your career- now updated to address the challenges of today's economy

A range of quizzes and per­sonality exercises help readers to identify the type of work for which they're best suited, and then Jansen shows them how to transform this uncertain time from a period of crisis into an opportunity for positive change..
