9780316236737: Do What You Are: Discover the Perfect Career for You Through the Secrets of Personality Type

The bestselling guide to finding career success and satisfaction through Personality Type is now thoroughly revised, expanded, and updated.

Do What You Are -- the time-honored classic that has already helped more than a million people find truly satisfying work -- is now updated to include jobs in today's hottest markets, including health services, education, and communications technology.

With the global economy's ups and downs, the advent of astonishing new technology, the migration to online work and study, and the ascendancy of mobile communication, so much has changed in the American workplace since this book's fourth edition was published in 2007. What hasn't changed is the power of Personality Type to help people achieve job satisfaction.

This fifth edition is especially useful for millennials and for baby boomers experiencing midlife career switches. The book leads readers step-by-step through the process of determining and verifying Personality Type. Then it identifies occupations that are popular with each Type, provides helpful case studies, and offers a rundown of each Type's work-related strengths and weaknesses. Focusing on each Type's strengths, Do What You Are uses workbook exercises to help readers customize their job search, ensuring the best results in the shortest period of time.
