Rousing, bullsh*t-free advice for aspiring career changers
What is a careergasm? Does it feel as good as it sounds?
You bet your ass it does. A Careergasm happens when your work feels good. Really good. Like a groovin’ Marvin Gaye song. Like you and your work belong together, and you can’t help coming back for more.
But how do you get your mojo back when you’re in a passionless relationship with your job? In Careergasm, Sarah Vermunt leads the way. This playful, empowering book for wannabe career changers is a rally cry, a shot of courage, and a road map charting the course to meaningful work. Filled with real stories about brave people making great stuff happen, this how-to book will help you step out of your career rut and into action. It is written with love and punctuated with laughter. The snorting kind. And the occasional F-bomb. It’s a warm hug and a kick in the ass delivered by a straight-talking spitfire who walks the talk and has hundreds of thousands of people sharing her work online. It’s time to feel good again.
A former business professor, Sarah Vermunt is the founder of Careergasm, where she helps people figure out what the heck they want so they can quit jobs they hate and do work they love. She writes about careers for Forbes, Fortune, Inc., and Entrepreneur. She lives in Toronto, Ontario, and online at Careergasm.com.
“What makes Sarah Vermunt’s new work manual Careergasm: Find Your Way to Feel-Good Work stand out from all the rest is she strips out all the yawn-inducing, sometimes straight-up nonsensical corporate jargon that makes so many other how-to’s insufferable, injects just enough casual language to make youngs feel comfortable, and breaks it down into totally digestible, doable, realistic chunks (no abstract “If you dream it, you can achieve it!” mantras here)." — FLARE
