This book is packed with good advice about planning your career. In the past, you may have leafed through journals and newspapers looking at job adverts or dreamt of developing your skills to further your career. But you may not have made any positive plans for doing so until now. You may not have had the confidence to believe that you too could succeed. You may have felt ground down by work and too tired to make plans let alone study for new qualifications. After returning from holiday you might vow to take on all sorts of career development activities in future - but when back at work you soon become tired and apathetic about progressing your career again.
