Written in a down to earth manner, almost as the author is speaking directly to the reader, Inspire your career is full of wise counsel from a young lady who progressed quickly in her career. Using personal experience and reflection exercises, the author takes readers on a journey that touches on the many areas new workers confront early.

For instance, she provides advice and tips on understanding the bigger picture, the importance of avoiding assumptions, and the importance of recognizing and dealing with personal frustrations. Finally, the author deals with various transition issues that individuals will face in their career. This is an enjoyable and helpful book especially for new job entrants so don’t let the dense internal layout detract from the value if offers.
