Book notes: The 5 patterns of extraordinary careers

Title The 5 Patterns of Extraordinary Careers
Authors James M. Citrin and Richard A. Smith

Citrin and Smith draw upon extensive experience in executive
recruiting (and we’re talking CEO searches for _big_ companies here!)
to describe the career patterns for high-level executives. Not really
my career path, but people who are interested in rising to the top
through a mix of potential-based promotions (up) and experience-based
promotions (generally sideways) will do well to read this book.

Check out 5patterns.com for a self-test,
a useful job survival guide, and other goodies.

Posted a rather painful and educational experience on my LiveJournal as a friends-locked entry. If you want to read about my internal conflicts (don’t know why), send me your LJ id.
