Build the career you want—on your terms.

"Where do you see yourself in five years?" This question can make even the most ambitious of us feel a little nauseous. Starting out in the working world is hard enough, but thinking long-term about our careers—and whether we even want a capital-C "Career"—can be daunting. Luckily, there are steps we can take to build careers that fit our individual interests, needs, and skills.

Experience, Opportunity, and Developing Your Career is filled with practical advice from HBR experts who can help you answer questions like:

  • Should I choose to follow my passion, my purpose, or my values?
  • How will I know if a job is really right for me?
  • What's the best way to use my network?
  • How can I make big decisions about my career?
  • This book will help you define the career that fits you, so you can align your passions and values with your daily work.

    Rise faster with quick reads, real-life stories, and expert advice. The HBR Work Smart Series features the topics that matter to you most in your early career, including being yourself at work, collaborating with (sometimes difficult) colleagues and bosses, managing your mental health, and weighing major job decisions. Each title includes chapter recaps and links to video, audio, and more. The HBR Work Smart Series books are your practical guides to stepping into your professional life and moving forward with confidence.
