Book Review and Giveaway- Great Graduation Gift

Congratulations to Alicia, the winner of the giveaway!

I recently had the opportunity to review Crafting a Successful Career by R.A. Kuffel. I'm posting my review here because I think it will make a great college graduation gift and its a great book for anyone wanting to advance their career.


In Crafting a Successful Career: Eight Principles for Winning in a Challenging World RA Kuffel provides the framework on which anyone can build a successful career.

With sound advice and a casual and humorous, yet to-the-point style, it’s like having a mentor beside you, guiding you through the minefield of the corporate world. At a time when many college graduates are discovering that jobs are hard to find and even harder to keep, the advice in this book may be what they need to succeed. The step-by-step approach is easy to follow and the insights that come from years of experience are invaluable. I wish I would have read this book fifteen years ago.

The principles in the book are timeless, and though it’s written from the perspective of a “corporate” employee, most of the principles apply to those in other situations as well. Starting a small business? You still need a mentor. Work independently? A network is still essential. The broad scope of the principles make this is a book that you can benefit from regardless of your particular occupation. I found that many of the situations he described were ones I could relate to both in the corporate world and now in a small ministry job.

No matter where you are in life, just starting out, mid career, or looking for something new, this is a book you need to read.

"Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.
