Summary

From the founder of the influential website Career Contessa, an invaluable career resource for women feeling stuck or unfulfilled that combines actionable advice, learning tools to make impactful life changes, and an in-depth discussion of how to build a meaningful career on your terms.

With her popular website Career Contessa, Lauren McGoodwin built an audience of ambitious, professional, millennial women who thought they did everything right - they got the degree, the internship, and even the promotion - but still wondered why they felt stuck and unfulfilled. The first site of its kind to focus on the unique, complex aspects of women's careers, Career Contessa offers women the smart advice they deserve, in a voice that resonates.

Drawing on the insights and lessons developed from Career Contessa, Power Moves is the essential handbook that helps professional women truly feel understood so they can bypass perfection and planning and head straight to evolving. McGoodwin addresses young professionals’ number-one concern: career transitions and growth, and engages them with specific goals, including:

  • What is a Power Move and why they matter
  • Cutting out comparison, shame, and self-loathing
  • How to abandon the elusive “dream job”
  • Embracing your inner questioner, your inner quester, and your inner-quitter
  • Making money moves and taking control of your financial future
  • Tuning out from the noise and tuning into your voice

Power Moves is filled with the information, guidance, advice, and essential tools, that can help women take decisive, bold steps without self-doubt and fear, Power Moves shows women how to build a successful career on their own terms. 

Supplemental enhancement PDF accompanies the audiobook.

Thoroughly enjoyed it.

As a long time Career Contessa fan, I enjoyed listening to Lauren's learnings throughout her career. I will most likely continue to refer back to this frequently.

Well Rounded Look at Careers

Very informative and interesting.
Useful tips that are relatable to my life.

Not enough content regarding workplace politics but there's much less of that during quarantine anyway.

:)

Relatable and actionable

Great book, written colloquially and with humor. Given so many tips and actions, might get the physical book also.
