Korn Ferry Launches New Career Book, Take Control: The Career You Want, Where You Want

LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Korn Ferry (NYSE: KFY) today announced the launch of a new book, Take Control: The Career You Want, Where You Want, a guide to getting the job and getting ahead.

“Today, we are all career nomads – working everywhere and anywhere, and talented professionals have never been more at a premium,” said Gary D. Burnison, CEO of Korn Ferry and the New York Times best-selling author of this new book. “Amid this time of great transition, opportunity abounds. It’s all about knowing how you are wired, landing the right job and advancing in a career that connects you to something bigger than yourself.”

The new book breaks career advancement down into three concepts, all in the context of navigating between the flexibility and opportunity everyone wants—and the commitment and performance that organizations need.

  • Understanding how you're wired—your A.C.T. (being authentic, making a connection, and giving others a taste of you who are you), tapping your right brain, and learning as the secret to sustainable success.
  • How to get the job and get ahead—targeting the right opportunities, networking your way to get there, tackling the resume (and understanding what it can and can’t do) and acing the interview (on screen or in-person).
  • Learning how to work with others—getting along with and understanding your colleagues, navigating culture, and communicating and connecting in today’s increasingly complex world of work.
