Book description:

You deserve a career that allows you to explore new cultures, challenge the way you think and provide the financial freedom to reinvent yourself. This book lays out a simple career lifecycle model called ADAPT — a five-stage career lifecycle model.


The ADAPT method is a simple model to help assess progress, challenges and opportunities.

  • Acquire
  • Develop
  • Apply
  • Produce
  • Transition

For example, during the Acquire stage, steps to take include

  • Get Socially Engaged
  • Develop a Second Language
  • Seek Travel & Adventure
  • Organize Yourself
  • Find Your Advisors
  • Find What Motivates You
  • Invest in Yourself

Author Paul Goudreault emphasizes that the ADAPT model can be used at any age or career stage, but hopes younger people take note. Goudreault entered the workforce as a young geologist and created a successful 40-year career in the engineering and consulting industry.
