Are you ready to explore a new idea about what a career can look like?
In her book, I'm Susan and I'm a Serial Careerist, Dr. Susan R. Meyer explores a whole new idea of what a career looks like. An ever-increasing number of people leap from rock to rock in the career stream, some with a plan and purpose, others just hoping for the best. Based on her own personal journey and experience as a serial careerist, life architect and career strategist Dr. Susan R. Meyer has created this invaluable guide of seven key strategies, practical exercises, and tips for exploring new pathways to a career you design. The book offers specific advice for three groups: millennials, midlife career changers, or those reentering the workforce.
Susan weaves her fascinating life story and the lessons she learned in her more than five decades through a series of varied work experiences, false starts and stops, the successes, an occasional miracle, and a few blind alleys. Using her life history, she helps readers see patterns emerge that can help them examine their own life stories, with practical strategies and tips to help readers avoid potential pitfalls along their own path.
The seven strategies plus tips and exercises are presented within the framework of the chronology of Susan's life story so that you can easily see examples of how they apply to specific life decisions. This is followed with a longer version of her life history with insights integrated. A helpful recap of the strategies and exercises for easy reference is included near the end of the book.
