Everyone can escape career creek. All they need is the right paddle.
In 2012 Josh Roberts left university with a head full of dreams and a heart full of hope.
The world – and in particular the world of work – was his oyster. He was going to get a brilliant job, enjoy a challenging, purposeful career and get stinking rich in the process. Fast forward a decade, though, and success hasn’t been quite so easy. Unless you count six jobs in six years, a string of failed ‘side hustles’ and having a mental breakdown as ‘success’. No, like millions of other young workers, Josh spent his twenties drifting aimlessly through his career before resolving, on the eve of his twenty-eighth birthday, to make a change.
Which is what Generation Drift is all about. Told with warmth and wit – and brimming with advice from CEOs, recruiters, psychologists and fellow ‘drifters’ – it’s a hopeful, helpful guide to navigating professional uncertainty and finding fulfilling work. This book will share the tools and signposts you need to look to the future with a positive view. Generation Drift is Josh’s optimistic, reassuring and practical guide to navigating professional uncertainty and finding fulfilling work.
