Living Your Best Career

A practical guide to landing jobs and loving your career

This book is a must have reference when it’s been a long time since your last search

As a professional who had been out of the job search game for over 12 years, I had no idea where to even begin. Living Your Best Career not only helped me create my resume to capture my professional strengths but also prepared me for the interview. The book gave me the confidence to go in and land the job I was initially nervous to apply for. I will continuously refer to the book throughout my career and recommend to those right out of college through mid to late career.

Helps you to love what you do

If you love what you do you will be good at it.  I have watched Jonathan guide and advise people for almost two decades.  His knowledge, insight, and perspectives transcend just making more money, or taking the next step on a career ladder.  Instead, he helps people to introspect, and to understand what they should be doing, then helps them do it. “Living Your Best Career” will do just that for those who read it.

Powerful guide to mastering the personal journey

I work with a lot of senior executives who find themselves stuck trying to figure out their next career moves. At some point, they realize that it is less a question of their "careers' or "making lots of money" - both of which many of them have in spades - but more often it's about becoming a master of their own personal journey. “Living Your Best Career” promises and then delivers on clarifying this often difficult, murky and high anxiety decision process.
