Many soon-to-be MBA students and recent business school graduates have been reaching out to us for help in understanding how to best identify and achieve their career goals. Although we have previously blogged about this topic , recently we came across a book that resonated with us because it presents a process for moving forward that mimics what we have seen work for our clients.   The premise of Designing Your Life: How to Build a Well-Lived, Joyful Life by Bill Burnett and Dave Evans is that to achieve change, people need a process to help them figure out what they want and how to create it.

We believe these are relevant for succeeding in the career exploration and job search process: Have you been admitted to business school? If so, do you want to get a head start on defining your career goals? Do you need help preparing for job interviews or learning how to effectively network with your target employers? Or maybe you want to be a top performer in your current role but are unsure how to maximize your potential. Let an mbaMission Career Coach help via a  free 30-minute consultation !
