Editorial Reviews

Review

Using a workstyle assessment technique called Color Q, […]probably one of the best career self-testing books you'll ever run across."

-Mensa Bulletin

"... insightful and complex."

-Accounting Today magazine

" the book makes for a great teaching tool...whether you're a career counselor, a college student, or the average Joe/Jane.

-Campus Career Counselor

"For thousands of Americans Shoya Zichy's landmark 276 page masterpiece, "Career Match" may have simultaneously squelched the wretched specter of unemployment and brought career satisfaction to those who sing the blues at a time when their nation's economy has been sporting a historically rosy complexion...The most compelling reason for reading this book and why we are bringing it to the attention of TravelSmart readers is that "Career Match" makes it easier for anyone who wants to squeeze the most out of their life experience to do just that. That's why I bought copies for each of my children (all over 40 now). If they can get as much out of the book as I did they'll be grateful for the rest of their lives. ''

5Surprisingly accurate
By Michael
I was surprised at how accurate this book was. And when I read the careers that matched my personality, the list contained my current career, a career I've been recently studying for hoping to make a change, as well as a few other careers that I've seriously considered in the past. In fact every career that I seriously considered was in the list. I was amazed. My wife took the test and she found hers pretty accurate as well and it's helping her with her in between jobs job search. For the price it's entertaining and fun, yet helpful at the same time. Highly recommended.

5Get to know yourself better and how to work with others
By Nimisha Baball
What I absolutely loved about this book is the way it is written. You will feel like the author is speaking with you. It feel personalized and customized as you read. The 4 color categories are very well described and if you can't figure out what your color is, there is even a test included in the book!!!

What's more is the fact that this book will help you understand what your skills and talents are and help you figure out what type of career/industry would the most ideal for you to be able to enhance your skills and add value to the organization.

Overall, I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to succeed, not only in the business/professional arena, but in personal relationships as well. You will learn to be more observant and react towards people the best way the message would get across to him/her. Get the book and you will see!

5Best Assessment
By Gail McDaniel
I compared the Color Match assessment test with many others and Color Match wins for several reasons. 1. Ease of testing 2.Accurate results 3. Excellent career suggestions. More importantly, I learned so much about myself. . . . why my last job was the wrong culture for me, what to look for the next time, how to make a business presentation to a "Blue", why some relationships just don't seem to work. There is so much here that is more than career. However, I will never hire again without giving this test to the candidate.
