Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Mitchell (founder, Reinvention Inst.) lays out the ten "laws" of career reinvention, from creating a vision and forming a network of resources to speaking the language of your new career. Each law is accompanied by a profile story to illustrate the purpose of the law and demonstrate how it can be put to work. This book is made all the more useful by the inclusion of a companion workbook, which can be used either along with the book (exercises refer to certain sections of the laws) or separately after reading. A link to an e-version of the workbook will prevent library circulation problems. This self-guided tool lets readers immediately put the laws into action with their own career reinventions. A fine complement to other job search resources.—EN

    Extremely useful, hands-on guide to helping you evaluate alternative career paths

    Pamela's book is a very compelling read. It clearly outlines the current working climate with regard to the uncertanties we face almost daily. It helped me to move past the frustration of thinking, "if I already knew how to change my career, I would have done something already" to thinking, "this isn't nearly as bad as I thought - I could use my skills to do a number of other things successfully". In addition, this book helped me to not only evaluate alternative career choices I might not have thought about before, but it also helped me to understand what drives me and to think about how I can translate my 'passions' in life to other career choices. I feel like I know my self better after having read this book. It goes a long way to taking the fear out of making a career change.

    If your career isn’t delivering the results you want, you

    If your career isn’t delivering the results you want, you need this straightforward book. Pamela Mitchell presents her well-designed, if not totally innovative, formula for examining, redefining and achieving your career goals. She begins each chapter with an in-depth profile of an individual’s actual career-transformation experience. She then presents a law, discusses its pivotal lessons, analyzes hidden conflicts, offers strategies and techniques, and refers you to appropriate exercises in the workbook at the end of the volume. getAbstract recommends this practical manual to those who are ready to start the process of career change and see it through.
