Prolific business author Jon Acuff offers a handy formula for investing in your career by building a Career Savings Account made up of four investments: “relationships, skills, character and hustle.” He devotes a section to each one, and shows you how to weather the four major career transitions: “Jumps, Bumps, Ceilings” and “Opportunities.” Most people don’t plan their career transitions. These transitions can be voluntary or involuntary, positive or negative, but you can manage all of them if you invest in yourself. Acuff offers practical advice, and he’s downright funny when discussing how to deal with “stupid people” who gain promotion anyway, how to avoid workplace complainers, how to find advocates, how to polish your skills, and more. getAbstract recommends his advice to professionals who see a career change coming down the track and especially to those who don’t. 

In this book, you will learn

  • How to manage career transitions and execute a “do over”;
  • Why you should invest in your “Career Savings Account”; and
  • How to build your “relationships, skills, character and hustle.”
