The Smart Chick’s Guide to Career Happiness is a work of non-fiction in the genre of self-help and career advice and was penned by author Carol Maloney-Scott. Written in the style of an ongoing voyage of discovery towards true career happiness, the author addresses many common topics and limitations that women may discover when they are trying to progress towards their career goals. From finding your central purpose to discovering clarity and removing fears and doubts, Carol highlights six key areas (named ‘Tickets’ in her ideology) that will enable her readers to set and achieve their goals in their business lives.

Author Carol Maloney-Scott has created a concise and informative guidebook that has a very well organized structure. This means that on first reading the guide makes excellent chronological sense, but it is also easy to refer back to specific segments that will be most relevant to readers when they begin to implement the strategies and thought processes into their own lives. A particular favorite area of mine was the Clues section in which the possible pathways into a fulfilling career are explored, based on personal motivations and interests. Since a working life is such a huge part of anyone’s life nowadays, Carol gives excellent advice on making it an element that brings joy as well as financial security. Her narrative style is both friendly and professional throughout the guide to make it highly accessible to all types of readers. Overall, The Smart Chick’s Guide to Career Happiness is essential reading for working women seeking solid advice for the future.
