Editorial Reviews

Peter Keller
Excellent book, short and to the point. The best part are the "skillbuilders", worksheets that helped me to find and express my strengths and knowledge. They gave me the confidence to write a good resume and prepare my interviews.
Within four weeks I had five interviews and found a job, after having looked for a job for nine months.
Sandra Donahue
I am very impressed with this guide. It not only provides practical step by step advice, it includes examples of cover letters, how to interview, how to prepare a resume, etc. to show you how it is done. The "Skillbuilders" is an excellent self-evaluation tool. It is straightforward, to the point and easely understandable.
Victoria Hale
I recommend this book because it was a very helpful resource to me in finding employment. It took me step to step into the process of job searching and how to do it effectively and efficiently. If you are looking for an easy guide to job searching that is simple yet thorough, this is the book for you.
