Jump! Is a career development book with practical and proven strategies to help move your career forward. You will learn how to:
> Take charge of your career and figure out what you really want to do
> Make an excellent first impression within your first month in any job
> Execute like a true professional and propel your career forward at pace
In this book, you will read about very useful tips that, if applied, could have a profound effect on your career. Some of the suggestions will be uncomfortable so will take you out of your comfort zone. You will find that it will be easier to agree with the action but justify why what you’re currently doing will suffice. If you find yourself thinking this, stop, and realise that if you keep doing what you’ve always done you will keep getting the same results.
Through a series of self-reflective exercises, you will be encouraged to analyse your current professional journey, looking at both strengths and weaknesses to ensure you are performing to a high standard in the workplace and recognising how you can take steps to go even further.
Organised into bite-sized chapters, Jump will carefully guide you through different elements of your career development, from building strong relationships to setting and achieving clear goals. Give your career the kick-start it needs, with Jump!
“I simply wanted to help others. From a very early stage in my career I learnt some harsh lessons. Over the years I’ve acquired a large base of mentees, which helped to consolidate the most common areas in need of guidance. This book is written specifically to address these issues, which I believe will be equally useful to other similar candidates.” – Buchi Onwugbonu
