Book Review: Career Crossover | From Where You Are To Where You Should Be

Disclaimer: I’m not a professional book reviewer. All thoughts and opinions on this book review are my own. This is not a sponsored post. 



The first few pages of Venchito Tampon Jr.’s book, Career Crossover, gave me an expectation of a smooth but solid writing. It is nothing technical, but everything is definitely substantial and useful for anyone looking for a Career Development book. Whether you are about to make a life-changing career decision, know someone who cannot settle for a job because of career indecisions, or simple if you want to have a good read about career development.

I particularly like how he shares personal experiences in each chapter, which his readers will find relevant and useful in understanding this book better. I also like how Venchito put emphasis on having a mentor, a person who can guide you through your career change. There is something humbling about admitting that you do not know everything and you need certain people in your life to  be able to go from where you are to where you should be, as the book’s title suggests. He also provides guidelines to help the readers accomplish each task with more direction and purpose. 

On the other hand, this book is not solely about career crossover but also work improvement. Venchito gives tips how to become better workers whether you are a freelancer, an employee or an entrepreneur. The major takeaway from this book might be that direction is important in taking a shift in your career. Venchito emphasizes that when you know where you are headed, it is easier for you to work joyfully and willingly.

In our life, career crossovers do not just happen. We make them because we are headed towards a certain direction and, in the process, we need people, resources, and passion to succeed, to name a few important contributing factors. This is where the book enters the picture.  

Overall, there are many personal and work lessons you will gain from this book. I highly suggest this book to individuals who yearn to make a shift in their careers but do not know how or where to start.

    I want to read books like this! My friend reads book about personality development so I started getting interested. But I don’t think I can commit, since I seem to have a lot on my plate right now, I won’t be able to focus. But hopefully I could read this!

    I recently resigned and moved to a new company and it was a tough decision for me. Until now I am contemplating if it was a right decision but still hoping that it is.


      Really? Your new company is where you had your Christmas party, right? I hope you adjust smoothly to your new workplace! It’s tough learning things from scratch, if that’s your case.

      You know what I love about personality development/ self-help books? They’re not novels that you have to read in one sitting! You can relate to them kahit one week na yung lumipas because they’re evergreen! Let me know if you’ve read nice books in that niche, kasi yun din hilig ko. I rarely read fiction/novels now.

      Thanks for dropping by, Mei!
