Skyrocket Your Career: The No Bullsh*t Approach to Find Your Dream Job, Be Successful in It, and Transform into a Rockstar by Raj Subrameyer is a non-fiction self-help business guide for those on the hunt for employment. The book begins with two introductions, one as a foreword and the other by Subrameyer himself as he outlines the aspirations of his family and what he wanted to do, and how he has achieved the level of success he enjoys now. The book then breaks down into six chapters covering the distinct strategies that fall into the categories of figuring out what you really want to do, the interview and salary negotiation stages, finding success in a job you love, becoming a rockstar in your role, and reaching your full potential through unleashing the power that will inevitably lead to growth.

Skyrocket Your Career covers a whole lot of material that hardly seems possible given its compact size, but Raj Subrameyer is able to deliver the goods with a witty narrative and some genuinely insightful ideas. As a whole the book did feel as if it skewed a bit more toward those in the technology sector, but the application can be easily and quickly tweaked to bend towards virtually any industry so long as you actually know your way around the field. Subrameyer reminds me of an old boss who encouraged me to apply for a promotion for which I was woefully unqualified: “It's not whether you can do the job, it's whether you can get the job.” This of course flies right in the face of Subrameyer's rockstar strategy of underselling to overperform in chapter four, which is where I connected most to the book's message. Overall, this is an excellent book with a lot to offer, and Subrameyer seems like just the kind of pro who can get you there.

The techniques and strategies will help readers tap into their rockstar potential and get rid of their social anxiety, fear of rejection, confusion about their life, and shutting themselves off from others. Achieving anything is possible if the proper effort is put in, if there is motivation, and one has a proper goal. The author's real-life experiences and strategies are tried and tested and make this book palpable to readers and will give them the confidence to find their dream job.

I like the author's approach to the topic and his tips and tools will help readers immensely in working on their mindset, goals, and making that leap into their dream job. Skyrocket Your Career has been divided into six chapters, and each one has exercises that can be practiced to transform life, make good career choices, and do something meaningful with purpose.

Raj Subrameyer's suggestions are simple and can be incorporated easily to make that transformation that many readers have been looking for in their lives. The book can be re-read when there is a lack of motivation and self-doubt so that negative thoughts can be eliminated and the transition can be made easier.

Skyrocket Your Career: The No Bullsh*t Approach to Find Your Dream Job, Be Successful in It, and Transform into a Rockstar is a work of non-fiction in the self-help and inspirational sub-genres and was penned by author Raj Subrameyer. As the title suggests, this concise work is packed with motivational content to help its reader stop dreaming about the life they want and actually go out there and achieve it. Through the detailed method of realistic strategies and practical implementations which helped the author on his own life journey, the book hopes to encourage others to unlock their hidden power for positive change and facing their fears.

Author Raj Subrameyer will be sure to appeal to a wide audience with this highly engaging work, which will suit anyone who feels that their life is in a slump, but perhaps that they do not have the power, confidence, or bravery to rise up and make a change. I enjoyed the narrative style very much, which uses some explicit language and many informal expressions to keep the tone realistic and down to earth. There is dry humor to the text, but also great confidence embedded by an author who has proven his own strategy to be true, which makes the work feel like the advice of a wise and successful friend. Overall, I would certainly recommend Skyrocket Your Career to anyone seeking honest advice, realistic experiences of success, and practical strategies to enact a better life for themselves.
