Excerpt: “Excellent throughout. Extremely useful in discovering your highest potential in your career destiny.” 

Full Review: If you are on the job hunt looking for a career change, Define your Career is an excellent resource to help identify your strongest career attributes. I love how Mr. LaFata lays out a definitive plan that results in the discovery of your ideal career path. He provides very practical and sound strategies for dealing with any obstacles that may be holding you back from your greatest potential. Besides unearthing what he calls your career destiny, the book is packed with wisdom, good sense, and practical examples. The book is enormously insightful with a Zen quality throughout. The most useful features for me were the work values satisfaction assessment. It helped me determine what I needed to include when I make my midlife career change. Completing the 10 self-assessment chapters gave me the strategies to overcome my fear of change, and not be held back by past failures or lack of experience in my newly chosen career path. The book gives you inspiration and a practical process to choose your ideal career. The job market has drastically changed in the last decade since I looked for a job. I found this to be a definitive career planning guide. Extremely helpful in fulfilling my destiny, to make my right career choice in the Foodservice business. This book set me on the right path. I highly recommend this book to anyone making a career change or those who are not sure what career would work best for them.

Excerpt: “If you need guidance on choosing the right career path, this is the book to read.”

Full Review: This book really did a lot for me. After spending years in a career that wasn’t the right fit, only to get laid off and being stuck not knowing where to go next, this book literally landed right in front of me at the perfect time. This is a great read if you are asking yourself what career is the right career for you. Going through all of the self-assessments, I did exactly what Larry’s method recommended,  being as detailed as possible, writing things down, and taking the time to figure out exactly what my career path should be, based on the 5 factors that I used as a guide to dissecting my life and my values. I am now more focused than ever, and I know exactly where I need to be. I definitely recommend this book to anyone who needs advice on career planning and wants to have more control over their own life, especially college students, those experiencing burnout with their current careers, and even those who are unemployed or underemployed.
