“The Career Within You”

What a tragedy it is to possess such natural gifts and to hide them from ourselves and the world. Elizabeth and Ingrid are great detectives who would have you understand your perfect habitat for all you can bring to the workplace. – Chip Conley, Founder/CEO Joie de Vivre Hospitality and Author of “Peak.”

In our book, “The Career Within You; How to Find the Perfect Job for Your Personality,” every career type is expressed in the type of desk it might use. Here is one example:

Typical desk of an Asserter.

Typical desk of an Asserter.

You can imagine your own ideal desk (if you use a desk at work). You should find something close to it in one of our 9 career-type chapters–this or another one. The way you’ll know your career type is through our writing and the description of many people who’ve held careers talking about their own experiences. My cartoons will also help.

After reading all 9 type chapters, you’ll go back and take the Wagele-Stabb Career Finder at the end of the chapter you most closely identify with. This is more personal than you might think, because we’ve found a way to base the outcome on your own highest strengths within your type. Then you’ll match your own preferences for careers with the careers people of your type have shown they were best suited for. I can’t tell you how proud we are of this test we devised.

So if you’re looking for a job or need to manage the job you already have, get to know yourself as well as you can and learn what you can do for yourself to achieve practical results. Our book has two other chapters that will guide you through the job finding process with great expertise. I’m not boasting. This is mostly Ingrid’s forte, having been counseling people in careers for a long time. She knows so much about resume writing, networking, and all the ways to negotiate for a job.
