    Highly Recommended!

    In the latest edition of the College Grad Job Hunter, Brian D. Krueger, a post-college career authority, provides a highly targeted book on job hunting skills for recent college graduates. While others seeking entry level jobs can benefit, the emphasis is on how to prepare while you are still in college or just graduating. As such, it is a solidly written and well-organized book that views job hunting as a process and provides step-by-step techniques for searching for that ideal job. It is a useful how-to manual even if it duplicates some of the advice in other books, such as What Color is Your Parachute? Krueger helpfully includes sample letters, phone messages and job hunting Web sites and books. We recommend this good, basic book for all novice job hunters (not just freshly-minted college grads).
