Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Close your eyes and…imagine what it would feel like to be happy and excited and fulfilled in your work. Can’t do it? Career coach Jansen’s no-nonsense volume just might help. Her advice is seasoned and her tone encouraging, making this a solid resource for people who know they don’t like what they do; it might also be a wakeup call for others numbed into job complacency." —Publishers Weekly

"A must-read for anyone who is working and feeling dissatisfied, unfulfilled or unhappy with their current work situation." —Paul Tieger, author of Do What You Are

I Don't Know What I Want, But I Know It's Not This is the perfect guide if you want to find gratifying work but aren't sure how to get started…Jansen includes lots of quizzes and questions to guide your look inward, but the best part of the book is the explanation of the answers, which helps translate your unique attitudes and values into a meaningful career…Her handbook is a smart way to get going in a new direction.” —BookPage
