The Right Job, Right Now effectively bridges the gap between “What do I want to do?” and “How do I do it?” by presenting a complete step-by-step plan for long-term career satisfaction using self-assessment, self-marketing, and a comprehensive job search and career development strategy. 
 
Based on the author’s Kaleidoscope Career Model, this book shows you how to take charge of your career and takes you, step-by-step, through the complete job search process including:
 
Career assessment - what do you have to offer and what do you want in return?   
Taking action - searching for a new job, interviewing, and accepting offers.   
On-the-job issues – answers to common questions from dealing with a bad boss to performance management 
Using her unique and straightforward approach you will learn how to align your skills and abilities with your compensation and benefit needs and company culture preferences to find your career sweet spot – the qualities of a job that will allow you to perform to the best of your abilities and be rewarded accordingly.  Your career sweet spot becomes the basis of targeting a job search, writing resumes, taking advantage of technology, interviewing effectively, and landing the perfect job.
