Career Strategy Advice from Brian
About The Long View
From the moment you set foot on the ground floor, you are carving your path for the career of your dreams. Between the first day and the gold watch, however, are decades—decades in which you may need to pivot, to take a step back in order to get ahead, or to change careers entirely. Every choice you make can feel daunting, putting your financial security, your goals, and your happiness at risk.
Brian Fetherstonhaugh, Chairman & CEO of OgilvyOne Worldwide, understands this. He believes that every career has three stages, and one has tremendous influence on the next. In this straightforward and engaging guide, Fetherstonhaugh shares both his wisdom and the wisdom of his peers, interviewing colleagues at all points of the career path. These fascinating stories, augmented by the author’s sound advice, aid readers as they make their own decisions. The book also contains a series of highly practical and valuable exercises to guide career seekers as they develop their own strategies for successful and rewarding careers.
Equally indispensable for the just-out-of-college graduate as it is for the established worker contemplating a change, The Long View will help readers determine what factors will bring them their greatest career satisfaction, and then help them foster the skills to achieve it.
