Keppie Careers Reviews “The Amazing Adventures of a Working Girl”

I was surfing around Technorati this evening and ran into a job hunt blog called Keppie Careers. It’s written by Keppie Career founder Miriam Salpeter who has been advising clients regarding their career plans and writing resumes for over 12 years. I’m her newest Twitter follower and will be adding her blog to my “Blogs I Like” list as soon as I finish writing this post. She has great resources of all kinds for job seekers.

I really recommend reading her article on Karen Burn’s book “The Amazing Adventures of a Working Girl: Real-Life Career Advice You Can Actually Use.” I’m planning to get myself a copy to read as I get a chance. The book seems to complement finding your ideal career advice I’ve found in Richard Nelson Bolles’ book “What Color Is Your Parachute?” (see my Parachute book review) and Jeannette Kraar’s “Breakthrough” book (see my Breakthrough book review).

Here’s what she has to say about it.

This book encourages readers to take their own paths (even suggesting reading the book itself in random order) and reminds job seekers and careerists that, while there are certain factors that may be out of their control, the journey along the way can be exciting and even fun! I’d recommend this terrific guide to anyone who needs some practical, down-to-earth advice about job seeking, job hopping and finding your career bliss!

Here is the author’s youTube video on the book.

Hope this helps!

    Thanks, Jorge, for the mention. I, too, am a big fan of Mr. Bolles’s Parachute books and am flattered to be mentioned in the same sentence with them.

    Hope you enjoy the book (let me know!)

    Very honored to have the author commenting on my site. I ordered myself a copy off Amazon this afternoon and will read it as soon as it arrives. Don’t be surprised I’m reading a chick book. I live with four women at home. I’m even a “Desperate Housewives” fan. Go figure.

    Please stay in touch.

    Nice post. I worked for many years as a head hunter and absolutely agree – although looking for a job may make many feel lost and a bit out of control, the journey itself really can be very enlightening and many job seekers find new aspects of themselves during the journey and end up taking a job or finding a career they wouldn’t have considered before and being much happier for it.

    It can really be a chance to get to know yourself better and re-arrange your priorities.
