In this post, I’d be telling you a few tips I found in a practical-based career book entitled, “Change Your Career: 10 Practical Steps to a Successful Career Change” written by one of the best Nigeria-based career coaches and human resource experts Adora Ikwuemesi.
“Change Your Career is a self-help book for anyone who seriously wants to change their career quickly and successfully. Whether your desire is to start a new career, switch to a more fulfilling career or increase your earning potential, this book will help you achieve your career goals.”

Style of writing:
I stumbled upon the book on a Facebook Group created by Mrs Adora Ikwuemesi. The FB group is a meeting place for recruiters and job seekers in Nigeria.
The author talks to her reader(s) like they are both at a counselling class, it makes me, personally, feel like I’m facing someone face-to-face. Simple sentences yet powerful to shape your thoughts about career change.
Straight to the point, yet highlights some of the things you need in your career arsenal as you warm up for the task ahead.
What I like about “Change Your Career”
It isn’t a book exclusively for job seekers, it’s a useful book for those who want to build a career in human resource management and those who want to consolidate on their achievements in their chosen career.
End of every chapter contains a practical task
The chapters dwell on how to define and know where you’re headed. You shouldn’t end everywhere.
The highlight of 50 transferable skills and how to explore networking skills make the book a must-have for everyone.
“This practical guide is an easy read that reveals ten proven strategies to help you take the actions required to start your career change journey on the right footing by beginning with a compelling career vision.”
