A good read for career seekers

How'd You Score that Gig by Alexandra LevitOne of the kind bloggers who reviewed Accidental Branding – Alexandra Levit – sent me a copy of her new book “How’d You Score That Gig.”

I would recommend this for career seekers, particularly recent college grads or soul searchers currently reading “What Color is Your Parachute?”  Alexandra creates a self assessment that lands you in one of a number of different career profiles including Adventurer, Creator, Data Head, Entrepreneur, Investigator, Networker and Nurturer.  Based on this she spins out convincing descriptions of jobs – some of which you might never have thought of (Congressional Staffer, Health Club Owner, Zoologist, Foreign Service Officer).

This book will stimulate your career thinking and it’s concise and well-written.
