This is a wonder book by Professor Larry Smith, a Faculty Member from the University of Waterloo who has taught many a student and showed them how to create a career for themselves that is rewarding and saleable.
His book offers a provocative new approach to discovering your true calling in life and achieving not just a good career, but a great one.
Over the pat three decades, Professor Larry Smith has become something of a career whisperer for his students at the University of Waterloo. Each year, millions of talented college students from all over the world graduate with little or no real sense of what their next steps will be. Yet they are determined not to settle for a so-so career. They are looking for a great career.
Professor Smith points out that only a few fortunate souls are born knowing exactly what they want to pursue in life. The rest of us have to stop making excuses and we need to start asking ourselves some pretty tough questions about how we can achieve our goals.
The problem is that there is no real modern-day road may as to how to do this, until now. This book is it!
In his straightforward, no-nonsense approach, Professor smith itemizes and dismisses all the usual excuses, fears, and worries that people hide behind when trying to find their true direction.
Professor Smith’s unusual and contrarian take on this challenging conundrum is both universal and timely.
I recommend this book to any university graduate who doesn’t really know what she wants to do. This is your bible to determine where to go.
