Publisher's Summary

Jenny Blake, author of Life After College and former career development program manager at Google, reveals how to methodically make your next career move by doubling down on what is already working.

Careers are not linear, predictable ladders any longer; they are fluid trajectories. No matter our age, life stage, bank account balance, or seniority, we are all being asked to navigate career changes much more frequently than in years past. The average employee tenure in America is just four to five years, and even those roles change dramatically within that time. Our economy now demands that we create businesses and careers based on creativity, growth, and impact. In this dynamic world of work, the only move that matters is your next one.

Drawing from her own experiences and those of other successful pivoters, Jenny Blake has created a four-stage process that teaches anyone how to seamlessly and continually:

  • Double down on existing strengths, interests, and experiences
  • Find new opportunities and identify skills to develop without falling prey to analysis paralysis and compare and despair
  • Run small experiments to determine next steps
  • Take smart risks to launch with confidence in a new direction

This book is for anyone searching for an answer to the question "what's next?" Whether you have hit a plateau in your perfect-on-paper job, are considering taking on a new role in your current job, are thinking about starting your own business, or want to move into a new industry altogether, one thing remains clear: Your career success depends on your ability to determine your next best move. If change is the only constant, let's get better at it.

"If you don't manage your career, who will? Jenny Blake is here to remind us that we live in a different time, and the possibilities are endless - as long as we're willing to pivot." (Seth Godin, author of What to Do When It's Your Turn)

    "Pivot is the book we've all been waiting for"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely - buy it now!


    Any additional comments?

    The beauty of The Pivot Method is that it can actually be applied to any type of transition: career or business, professional or personal, big or small. I was fortunate enough to read an advance copy and have been using the method on an almost daily basis ever since to work through decisions as well as transitions. Pivot frames decisions in such a simple way that you don't even have to "make" them because they end up making themselves. Talk about making life easier!

    It cannot be overstated: Pivot is so ridiculously useful that if there's only one book you listen to for the rest of this year - make it this one - and then encourage your friends to do the same. To top it all off, Jenny Blake is a wonderful human being who has created a unique infrastructure to support and engage with Pivoters at pivotmethod.com. Grab your copy and join the Pivot revolution now.

    "Great tell all book"

    This is a great book for someone who is going through a career or life pivot. Jenny Blake does an amazing job of telling the emotional side as well as the origin stories of a pivot, which helped even more with the difficult times and fears.
