Om Where am I Going and Can I Have a Map?

'We will certainly be recommending the book to all our parents. It's quite simply the best available' - George Fussey, Head of Career Education, Eton College 'One of the most practical and comprehensible career guides ever produced' - Baroness Gillian Shephard From the Financial Times careers adviser, this book of wisdom will help you feel more empowered about your career. You can read it from beginning to end, or dive into specific sections for immediate advice on, for example, writing your CV. There are three sections: Stepping Back - What's this all about? The bigger issues that frame the whole area of your career and jobs; looking down on your career map from 10,000 feet. Practicalities - What do I do on Monday Morning? CVs, applications, interviews and all the other details on your map. Along the Way - Or, How do I Keep Going? How to cope with the hurdles and challenges that you might encounter while you're travelling along your route It includes an extensive set of real examples to bring it all alive, and is grounded with helpful statistics and sociological research. 'Indispensable, inviting and engaging' - Prof Dame Carol Black, DBE, FRCP, FMedSci 'A book about how to lead a happy life' - James Hodgson, Bedford School 'A uniquely powerful guidebook' - Mark Byford, Egon Zehnder 'The definitive careers guide' - David Palfreyman, OBE 'Wise, calming and pragmatic' - Emma Jacobs, FT 'A true career design compendium' - Caroline Konrad, Ryerson University 'Winningly combines anecdotes, surveys and years of professional experience' - Dr Tim Hands, Winchester School 'Elegant, light and humorous style' - Prof Dame Carol Black, DBE, FRCP, FMedSci 'From an expert at the top of his game' - David Palfreyman, OBE

We will certainly be recommending the book to all our parents. It's quite simply the best available. For students spending £27k- £36k on their degrees, a further £12.99 on this book is a certain step towards getting a better return on that massive investment. Winningly combines undergraduate anecdotes, professional surveys, and years of top level professional experience, providing as a consequence an indispensable and totally authoritative source of wisdom to students, teachers and parents alike. From an expert at the top of his game . . . the definitive careers guide for a stressed generation of high-fees debt-laden graduates understandably far more concerned about employment than ever before. Grounded in theory, he provides a wealth of practical advice. This is not just a book about careers; it is a book about how to lead a happy life. Both as a philosophy for career planning and as a last minute crib for interviews, this book is invaluable for all those setting out upon the next step. It is a treasure trove of common sense and experience, underpinned by the wisdom of a life well-trodden. A guide for people of all ages as they prepare, often hesitantly, to take an unfamiliar path. Better than a map, this book shows by captivating example how we can shape our own lives and careers. This is not yet another book on cv writing, job interviews and salary negotiations... Where Am I Going and Can I Have a Map offers a fresh approach to personalised career development in a personal tone of voice. Under headings like "not a life sentence", "passing the two second test" and "trial by sherry" the author shares original "words of wisdom" from his rich experience and engages (prospective) professionals in an aerial view on career exploration. I wish I had had this book when I was leaving university, worrying that my friends' paths were the right ones. The book tackles the anxiety and indecision head-on. Black is a wise, calming and pragmatic advisor to those climbing the first rungs of the career ladder.
