The Brazen Careerist Explores Career Change

The Brazen Careerist is a wonderful blog featuring thoughtful career advice from columnist, coach and author Penelope Trunk; we highly recommend it to JD Bliss readers pondering a career change.

The latest post explored why the surest path to a satisfying career was finding work that you enjoy and at which you can excel, while cautioning that excelling in a particular profession typically requires a willingness to take risks and weather setbacks (since success typically does not come overnight). Sounds like standard stuff, but Trunk's presentation - weaving in research from leading academics, economists and marketers - is detailed and compelling.

Interestingly, Trunk's father was a successful lawyer who became a high school teacher. Trunk shares some of the challenges her father faced during his career change, but concludes that he was happy with his choice.
