In this book, career management specialist Usha Albuquerque uses tests and questionnaires to show you how the person you are and things you love can all be brought to bear on this important decision. She illustrates how you need to start thinking about this early, identify your likes and dislikes, and set yourself realistic short-term and long-term goals which will enable you to fulfil your dreams.
