Champion Your Career – Winning in the World of Work is a blueprint for those seeking career guidance at any age. The author gives the reader permission to dream and play and envision a passionate career path, while offering industry standard exercises for self-assessments. With college costs at an all- time high, this book takes the guess work out of “what’s next” for college bound students, returning students and those making mid-life career changes or seeking a new career in retirement.

“I felt that a comprehensive career development book for the 21st century was needed to address the critical concerns of our time—the workers who are victims of downsizing and outsourcing, the boomers who are at retirement age but cannot afford to retire and the recent college graduates who are faced with an avalanche of confusing information and are clueless about how to pursue an appropriate career path,” says Halimah Bellows. Print copies of Champion Your Career – Winning in the World of Work are now available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble websites for pre-order. The ebook is also available through Amazon and Bookbaby.

The author has also developed “Career Quest Cards, Career Coaching in a Box.” The boxed set is a perfect gift for young and old and can be ordered at Amazon. These cards are portable, practical, thought provoking and combine the best of current career search information. The boxed set contains 24 colorful cards with over 30 exercises and is chock full of ways to open creativity, think outside the box, and make best possible career choices.

A Career Quest App is available now at Amazon and from google and ibooks book stores.  More information is available and print copies can also be pre-ordered at the author’s website: http://www.ChampionYourCareer.com . For media inquiries contact Diane at [email protected]
