    By far the most useful book I've bought to help in my job hunt.

    By far the most useful book I've bought to help in my job hunt. I had worked for a company for the first 5 years out of college and then suddenly found myself without a job. Looking for a job post-college is so very different than looking after a few years of experience, and I felt absolutely clueless. This book presents a step-by-step approach to finding a new job, literally walks you through the process—who to contact, when, what to say, how to follow up, etc.—and adapts the steps for job seekers in all different sorts of situations, prolonged unemployment, making a move while still employed, etc. Some of the advice may seem kind of “duh” to more seasoned or extroverted individuals, but I’ve found the ENTIRE thing to be invaluable, from the first chapter outlining how to put together an elevator pitch and how to adapt it to different situations you may find yourself in, to the countless “scripts,” like asking a reference to support specific details about your candidacy. I’d definitely recommend this book to any job seeker, especially those not quite steady on their feet with the whole networking thing.
