A Taste for Work, Your Menu for Career Success by Teri Clancy, Joy Maguire-Dooley, and Sally Morrison.  This book is a collaboration of 3 job search experts who walk you through the job search process from start to finish, with favorite family recipes in each chapter! They show you how to figure out what your ideal job would look like, all the way through your strategic approach to the first 90 days of your new job.

The methodology described in showing you how to select the right career for you is truly the best I've ever read. I interviewed Joy for this review, and our "quick recap" of the book turned into a 27 minute conversation with additional strategies to help you with your search.  At the end, she shares a personal story that will give you chills, you don't want to miss it so be sure to listen through to the end (and get some great tips along the way).
