Article Share: The 9 Best Career Books of 2019
By: Emily Delbridge

Ready for a career move but not sure when and where to make it? Every year publishers flood the market with “career advice” books and 2019 has been no exception. But how do you navigate all the endless titles? Google is a great place to start but Emily Delbridge, from The Balance Careers, has already done a lot of the leg work for you. But why trust her advice over others? According to the Balanced Careers Editorial Guidelines, their product reviews are entirely editorial as they “never take free samples” or take payment for their reviews but instead dig into the subject to find the books that will get you the biggest bang for your buck.

So what books does she recommend you dive into this year (2019) to navigate your career and plan your next move? She starts…

“A career is so much more than just a job. Almost anyone with enough time on their hands, enough determination, or enough desperation can find a job, and most people can even find a job that pays the bills, if just barely. But building a career, unlike finding a job, is a lifetime pursuit. Building a career requires dedication, both to yourself and to the work that you do. Creating a career involves persistence because it will not always be easy to find fulfilling work while moving your way up the career ladder — and these days, many career paths do not resemble a ladder at all, but rather a long and winding road.
