"Finally, a ray of light! Having taken various aptitude and interest tests, personality type tests, and career counseling,
I was still without a clue as to what work would be satisfying for me. I have been told that with my broad range of aptitudes,
broad knowledge, and variety of skills, that I 'could do anything'. I have been told that my abilities are both a 'blessing
and a curse' because the ones I'm not using will demand expression. So, I've had this tortured search for satisfying work.
Meanwhile, I've done a bit of everything: technical writing, designing and building computer hardware and software, systems
analysis, I even ran a factory for 5 years! But I've always wondered, 'where is this all getting me?' Career Anchors was
recommended to me as a way to answer my question, and I got the book without expecting much.
"But to my surprise and delight, I found that the author is the ONLY writer I've found who sees the most important factor in finding
one's work is your own internal motivators. His point is that you do best what you have the most motivation to do. In my own words:
when you get up in the morning, what is it that you look forward to?"
"Have you ever wondered if you're in the right career? Well I am a trainer in a 13,000+ staff company & 10% of them don't really know
why they're not satisfied with their job. Well, it's because they're in the wrong job. This book gives you exercises to help you understand
more about your values and gives suggestions on how to change that. If you're in career consultant business, this is a classic book to read
and adopt to your existing tools."
