9780143116998: I Don't Know What I Want, But I Know It's Not This: A Step-by-Step Guide to Finding Gratifying Work

The quintessential guide to kick-starting your career- now updated to address the challenges of today's economy

With our current economic situation, more people are unemployed now than at any other time in recent history and many who do have jobs are overworked, maxed out, and miserable. In this revised and updated edition of I Don't Know What I Want, But I Know It's Not This, career coach Julie Jansen shows how anyone unhappy with their employment-or lack of-can implement a real and satisfying career transformation. A range of quizzes and per­sonality exercises help readers to identify the type of work for which they're best suited, and then Jansen shows them how to transform this uncertain time from a period of crisis into an opportunity for positive change..

Review:

“Is it possible to improve an already wonderful classic? Apparently it is, because that's exactly what Julie Jansen has done. This book could have saved me years of frustration at the start of my career!” —Jon Acuff, New York Times bestselling author of Do Over: Rescue Monday, Reinvent Work & Never Get Stuck  
 
“A superb guide for career changers that will definitely improve your life. Jansen provides the tools, insight, and support you need to evaluate yourself and to develop and implement an effective action plan to move on to a job you will love or at least like a lot.” —Robin Ryan, bestselling author of 60 Seconds & You're Hired

“‘Life-changing’ is a bold claim. But with its inside-out approach to career creation, this book can be exactly that!” —Bryan W. Mattimore, bestselling author of 21 Days to a Big Idea

“A solid resource for people who know they don’t like what they do; it might also be a wakeup call for others numbed into job complacency.” —Publishers Weekly
 
“A must-read for anyone who is working and feeling dissatisfied, unfulfilled, or unhappy with their current work situation.” —Paul Tieger, bestselling author of Do What You Are

I Don't Know What I Want, But I Know It's Not This is the perfect guide if you want to find gratifying work but aren't sure how to get started...Jansen includes lots of quizzes and questions to guide your look inward, but the best part of the book is the explanation of the answers, which helps translate your unique attitudes and values into a meaningful career...Her handbook is a smart way to get going in a new direction.” —BookPage
