    Using your friends

    The main theme of the book is that old-fashioned networking is just that, "old-fashioned". You already know all the people who are going to help you accomplish your personal dream whether that includes a new job or not. People help people that they know. Mr. Beaudine is a man who places executives for a career, therefore, most of his examples are in the job obtaining category but his knowledge overlaps into any area where you have a dream. I must admit that for the first couple of chapters I felt like I was in Whoville with Dr. Seuss, Mr. Beaudine does use the "Who" factor a lot but once I was used to it, the annoyance disappeared. He uses many illustrations that make perfect sense like the character of Jimmy Stewart in "Its a Wonderful LIfe" who ended up asking his enemy for advice rather than his friends. Or the person who used a reference in a resume who mis-pronounced his name when called. Not exactly a "good" reference. His statement that "Everyone has a "WHO" network, a community of friends" really sums up the theme and he expands on this theme throughout the whole book. <BR/><BR/>I found that this book had some really good information for someone who was wanting to find a new position or look for ways in which to accomplish their dreams. Information on a source that is often overlooked by everyone. 4 stars

    Looking for A Job?

    If you are looking for a job or know someone who is, here is a good tool to help. In fact, if you have a job but would like to pursue your Dream Job, this is a book you need to read. This hardback 5-1/2" x 8-1/4" self-help book contains anecdotal stories illustrating the author's guidelines. Chapter 8 alone is worth the price of the book.
