Overview

For anyone who's ever been told, "Don't quit your day job," career counselor and independent thinker Carol Eikleberry is here to say, "Pursue your dreams!" Her Career Guide for Creative and Unconventional People helps you figure out how to use your unconventional and hard-to-categorize talents to make money and support your creative expression while doing the work you love. Doubt that you can earn a living using your creative skills? So did Carol's clients. But with help-the same validation and innovative tools you'll find in this inspiring book-they are now happily and creatively employed.

Updated third edition includes: An Inside Look at the Creative Personality. Many creative people feel that they just don't "fit in." Being different can be a big asset if you know how to leverage your offbeat passions. Eye-Opening Self-Evaluation Tools. Fun and engaging tests, questions, and checklists help you determine what kind of creative person you are, and which jobs suit you best. Real-Life Success Stories. See how Carol's strategies have already worked to help creative people find satisfying work-including a watercolor quilter who supports her crafting with a conventional job and an ethno-choreologist who performs around the world. Tips for Starting a Creative Career Notebook. Just as a chef compiles a cookbook and a poet keeps a journal, career seekers need a personal place for brainstorming and organizing their ideas. The notebook's customizable framework helps you identify your strengths, match your unique gifts to the world of work, and cultivate your talents during your quest for a fulfilling job. More Than 270 Creative Jobs Profited. An extensive appendix gives an in-depth look ata variety of career ideas-from the obvious (dancer, architect, actor) to the offbeat (acrobat, greeting card editor, ventriloquist)-including job descriptions, typical employers, and salary ranges.
