“I Am Changing Careers: Questions to Guide a Job Seeker” by Anita Job is such an important and relevant topic in today’s economy. During the COVID-19 pandemic the job market saw some of the most extreme fluctuations in recent times. From re-evaluating current employers and personal needs/desires in the workplace, to inflation and benefit drivers. Most of one’s day is spent working, occupations, employers and organizations are a huge source of an individuals’ identity so Anita Job’s book is extremely timely and essential.
What began as a series of blog posts by Job herself, turned into a full-fledged, published book as her experiences, advice and series of steps needed to be shared with a wider audience. This read especially hit home for me. After college, I really struggled to find my fit. I didn’t know where I wanted to be, why I wanted to be there, how I was going to get there, and what there even looked like. After holding a series of jobs, I finally started to get serious about a career I could commit to. I’m positive, had I had this book in my life back then, I would have been in a much better place, faster.
“I Am Changing Careers” asks important questions, forcing readers to take a good hard look at themselves, their strengths, weaknesses, and underlying attributes, self-reflecting enough to determine a career change that will leave them happy, thriving, and engaged. Currently, as I once again undergo my own professional upheaval, I find myself in a position to gain clarity and understanding as well as an easement of my own anxieties and uncertainties through the steps offered within. I left this read feeling at peace and ready to take on my own next chapter as I sequentially ticked off the steps, boxes, and playbook within.
