From the Back Cover:

Matching who you are with what you do may seem like common sense—but the sad truth is that most people don't have jobs that truly complement their personalities. Career Match takes you through a simple but revealing ten-minute self-assessment quiz to help you identify your specific personality type, then helps you:

· identify the type of work that will inspire and exhilarate you

· determine the kind of boss and work environment you need to thrive

· confirm the rightness of the path you're on—or help you find a better one

If the job you have doesn't leave you feeling exhilarated and inspire the kind of passion and satisfaction you deserve in your life, it's time to figure out which one will. Filled with detailed explanations of career options, and inspiring real-life stories of people who have found fulfillment in work that suits their personality, Career Match will show you how to find your true path to success.

“My advice for career-flounders varies, but I generally suggest they start by reading a time-tested career-advice book such as the latest edition of What Color Is Your Parachute? by Richard N. Bolles or I Could Do Anything If I Only Knew What It Was: How to Discover What You Really Want and How to Get It by Barbara Sher with Barbara Smith. I'm adding to that list another classic career-advice book that I happened to just finish reading, Career Match: Connecting Who You Are with What You'll Love to Do by Shoya Zichy with Ann Bidou.” —Career Coach, Pittsburgh Tribune Review “Looking for a pithy, upbeat, useful career book? Career Match is it—fun to read, insightful and informative! If you want to find a career that fuels the best parts of yourself, this book is for you!” —Dr. Pamela K. Gardner, Director of Career Services, University of Vermont
