Author offers practical ideas for job seekers

If you’re unemployed, underemployed or simply in need of a more satisfying professional path, you are far from alone. The year provided a lot of reasons to take stock in career choices and realign priorities. Why not begin the New Year with a new strategy for success that more accurately reflects your interests, talents and goals? 

“Your circumstances can be incrementally, if not exponentially, improved,” writes career development coach Helen Horyza in her new book, Elevate Your Career: Live a Life You’re Truly Proud Of. “You can design an amazing career through a comprehensive, step-by-step process that will allow you to consciously manage your transitions and grow to your full potential.”

 “Elevate Your Career” uses true stories about people from all walks of life and education levels who have reassessed their passions, pivoted their skillsets and created careers that are the perfect fit. How? Horyza offers tools that readers can use right away to reassess their own career paths.

 First, the Elevate Career Cycle method, which is explained in the book, can help readers uncover their passion by pinpointing their interests and unique talents.

No matter where you are in your evolving career journey – college student, executive or someone looking to course-correct – the book could provide tools and the momentum needed to elevate a career.
