Are you on the hunt for a great job? Step one is to read this book.
I am a recent college graduate who bought this book when I was starting to stress about my job search. Today after only my first job interview, I was offered a position at a company I am thrilled to work for and I attribute a large part of my success to this book. This book has it all it guided me through each step of my job search, interview and networking. The authors give advice you can rely on and is relevant in today¿s workplace. I used several of the suggested interview questions and I really believe they helped me land my job. Unlike most job hunting books, this one doesn¿t stop giving advice once you¿ve reached your goal of landing the job of your dreams but gives tips on how to make the most of your new opportunity and what you can do when you do have a job to make the next job hunt even easier. Consider this $15 an investment in your future.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

New Book on the Block!
What Color Is Your Parachute is the classic job-hunting tool ¿ good exercises that make you think and hold you accountable. But they are also a bit blah and boring, and the religious commentary is a bit unnerving. There¿s a new player in the market that¿s getting a lot of buzz ¿ Women for Hire: The Ultimate Guide to Getting a Job! I picked this up after hearing Regis and Kelly plug the book on their show. It¿s great! The tone is dynamic and motivating and the exercises focus on clear actions that you can take now. The authors do a great job of lifting your spirits. The anecdotes and feedback from recruiters and other human resource professionals helped me understand what goes on on the other side of the desk, once my resume is received. I incorporated a number of the tips and tricks detailed and am now interviewing for my dream job! I highly recommend this book!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
