What readers say about this book:

I’ve had some incredible personal growth from this book. The patterns that emerged from the exercises are enlightening. I have a job interview this week for a short-term goal job.  Just knowing that my next job needs to prepare me for my long-term objective was a revelation. But even more amazing is that as I dig through my documents and journals to fill out the company’s application, I find the same personal drivers and frustrations every time I look for a new job. I’m finally saying “enough is enough”. Without this book, I’d probably go back to the same bad-fit, stress-filled, long-commute type of job.  So a heartfelt thank you. – Amy B.

I have been a big fan of this book ever since I read the first chapter. I love the fact that it is not your ordinary book “be motivated – find your dream job just by dreaming about it”.

Instead it’s a hands on practical book with excellent exercises that really answers your questions about your aptitudes, capabilities, strategies and most importantly your career.

And it’s a greatly structured book: each part is a great complement to the others and offers more and more pieces to a puzzle in a unique and efficient way.

I loved the wheel of job search – this is the part that actually opens your eyes towards a new approach in job search instead of the classic “send resume, wait for a reply”.

And when you think this is great, here come the actual job strategies! I wish someone taught me these strategies in high school: what works, what doesn’t, and what is a great fit for each individual personality. Yes, they are that good!

Let’s face it: you do need to learn how to look for a job that will truly contribute to your career and to your happiness, and Gabriela writes in such a way that you think the book is really written with a special dedication to you.

What I learned helped me tremendously with my job search! I applied a few strategies I thought were best suited for me, and in the end I stood out in a pool of applicants and ended up obtaining that great job.” – Natalia B.

Whether you’re looking for a job for the first time or you already have some work experience, this book will help you take charge and accelerate your job search based on your strength. Isn’t this what you want?
