Overview

The idea of a career has changed forever. Our parents might have expected to work for three different employers in their working lives. We can expect to work for at least ten. Or only one. Ourselves.But as free agency and career-hopping have become the norm, career advice has stayed static, rooted in ideas of the 'perfect' career and company loyalty. Until now.The Career Adventurer's Instant Calmer will become the career advice first choice for a generation. It offers a complete self-managed process for understanding your life goals, your material and spiritual needs and your strengths as a person and worker. Instead of offering a single career solution, the book presents the reader with a journey, an adventure, where career and life become intertwined.
