Summary
This book is a blueprint for thriving in your job and building a career by applying the lessons of Silicon Valley's most innovative entrepreneurs. The career escalator is jammed. Unemployment is sky-high. Creative disruption is shaking every industry. Global competition for jobs is fierce. Traditional job security is a thing of the past. Here, LinkedIn cofounder and chairman along with the author show how to manage your career as if it were a start-up business: a living, breathing, growing start-up of you. Start-ups, and the entrepreneurs who run them, are nimble. They invest in themselves. They build their professional networks. They take intelligent risks. They make uncertainty and volatility work to their advantage. These are the very same skills professionals need to get ahead today. This book teaches the best practices of Silicon Valley start-ups, and how to apply these entrepreneurial strategies to your career. -- From publisher description
