career advice for young people 2

Hi, I’m Paul. Welcome to my careers blog!

Do you not know what career is right for you?
Are you in a job you don’t like and feel stuck as a result?
Not sure of your next career move?

Since I graduated university in 2005, I have struggled with all three of the above questions.

I’m a Finance Director with over 13 years experience working in various finance roles for PriceWaterhouseCoopers, ThomsonReuters, Eurostar, and GlaxoSmithKline.

I’m also a qualified Project Manager (Prince2), Program¬†Manager (MSP) and Lean Six Sigma Green Belt.

Despite the above, I’m not a huge fan of my career path ūüôĀ

Lot’s of my friends in their 30’s don’t like their jobs either. They find themselves in careers where they feel stuck for various reasons; not getting paid enough, they are bored, lack of opportunities, etc. I wondered if this was a common problem for other people in their 30’s?

So I decided to write a book interviewing 100 graduates 10 years on from university about their career paths and their career advice for young people.

1,252 copies of ‘1000 Years of Career Advice’ were downloaded in the first 5 days of it’s launch making it a #1 Amazon BestSeller.

This blog contains interviews from the book and info on career paths you won’t get elsewhere on the internet.

There are also some free resources to download (I really encourage you to check out the ‘long term earning potential of various careers’ below as this is something often overlooked)

Feel free to get in touch using the contact form as I’m very keen to pass on the career advice of 100 professionals.
