Positive and encouraging Nov 15, 2006
This book is full of practical advice, stated clearly and with a tone of positivity and encouragement. I am at a crossroads in my academic career with some choices to make based on incomplete information... I was feeling paralyzed by my fears and uncertainty about the future, but now am feeling so much more optimistic and energized as I map out how I will accomplish my goals. So far this book has helped me get my fears out on paper, give myself more encouraging messages & tools for success, and improve the conversations I have with my supervisor and colleagues.
A Must Read!! Sep 14, 2006
Susan offers tons of common sense approaches with insightful illustrations on how to manage your career. Many of her suggestions apply beyond the career context. This book is a must for all ages and sexes - from those first entering the labor market to those well on their way to career success. I bought copies for all of my colleagues and children. They made wonderful graduation gifts!
Great book for young professionals! Aug 26, 2006
I was not expecting to be able to apply Susan's well thought out advice to my career, just yet. As a fairly recent college graduate, I thought the book would apply to professionals who are mid-career or later. I was wrong. The advice is possibly more important for someone just starting off. I will send this book to all of my friends.
