Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

Career ladders and jobs for life are a thing of the past.

Today, we're living in a world of squiggly careers, where moving frequently and fluidly between roles, industries, locations and even careers is becoming the new normal. Squiggly careers can feel stressful and overwhelming, but if you know how to make the most of them, they can be full of opportunity, freedom and purpose. 

And to make the most of our increasingly squiggly careers we need to answer some important questions: What am I good at? What do I stand for? What motivates and drives me? Where do I want to go in the future?   

In The Squiggly Career, you'll learn how to:

  • Play to your super strengths. 
  • Discover your values.
  • Overcome your confidence gremlins.
  • Build better support networks.
  • Explore your future possibilities.

Packed with insights about the changing shape of work, exercises to fuel your growth and tips and inspiration from highly successful people, this audiobook will help you be happier and ultimately more successful in your career.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio on our Desktop Site.

Cant recommend this enough!

I have this on audible and a paper copy so I can keep revisiting sections when I need to. One of my all time favourite books. It is jam packed with career essentials and amazing advice. This is one of the best career investments you can make!

My first audio book- picked a winner!

This book has something for everyone who works! Looking forward to carrying out the practical exercises and getting started on working out what’s next. I found it easy to listen to with a good mix of practical advice and interesting anecdotes- also lots of signposting to useful resources. I’m all about getting curious now….

High-level and obvious

I listen to 1 or 2 books a week, many of which are in the business and self-help scope. Unfortunately, this was probably the worst book I’ve chosen. The information is obvious and simply not helpful. I hate to put down a book, so maybe if this is your first business book you could enjoy it. I can’t recommend it though.

A book of action, not just advice

This is a book that requires action from YOU. They provide exercises for you to do to get to the root of who you are and what you want from yourself and your career, which definitely go hand in hand.

Their podcast, Squiggly Career, is even better in my view. But this book is great as well.
