Career Success in 12 Easy Steps | a Journal

The first career resource is Career Success in 12 Easy Steps | a Journal, a book written by Judith Shenouda that applies a series of mini-assessments and helps you figure out what you are passionate about.

Judy takes you on a journey with other career explorers who share their methodology for finding their perfect career. The book uses a journal format and you can write or scribble your notes as you work the questions in each chapter.
