This book will completely change the way you approach your job search.

First figure out who you are (with help from personality types) then do what you are! It's genius. And helpful.

This book changed the way I look at me when I am searching for a job "I can impact my work place with my caracter; I will not let a job change my caracter. If forced to do it the other way around, it is a signal a better job is waiting for me. This allows me to keep a stable and healthy personality despite changes in job types and positions"

This book is great for learning about your personality, as well as careers that are best for you. I know several people, including myself, who found it to be very accurate.
