Customer Review

“This guided exercise has a beguiling way of teasing out truths about yourself you never knew that you knew. I wish I had done this when starting out on my job career, but I’m very glad I did it now. Dick Bolles is obviously a very clever, very experienced career advisor, and his method is delightfully positive. He basically argues, convincingly, that the best way to get a job is to discover and shoot for your dream job, the job that is perfectly matched to you in every conceivable way. I’ll be in that!”
