The Career Toolkit: Essential Skills for Success That No One Taught You

Think back over your life. Did anyone ever teach you networking, negotiating, communicating, leading, or career planning? No? Mark Herschberg would like to remedy that.

The Career Toolkit is packed with dozens of actionable principles, exercises, and practices that will accelerate your success and yield outsized returns for your career and your income. The book guides you through designing and executing your personal plan to achieve the career you deserve. It’s written for office professions, leaders, HR, and students – no matter where you are in your career, Mark has some suggestions to help you keep on the path that’s right for you.

The book is divided into three sections: Career, Leadership & Management, and Interpersonal Dynamics. If you’re currently facing a particular challenge, you can jump right ahead to that chapter. At the end of the book, you’ll have developed a wide-ranging set of skills for your career. You’ll also create a plan for where you want to go and use your newly honed skills to strategically and tactically accelerate your career.

Mark has spent his own career launching and developing new ventures at startups, in Fortune 500 companies, and in academia. He’s been dubbed MIT’s “career success accelerator” and he teaches a course there annually. Now he’s taken so much of what he’s learned and turned it into a book to deliver directly into your hands.
