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.
