Recently I was 'down-sized' at work and was at my wits end trying to get a job at my age. This book was invaluable. Not only did it give me good ideas about resumes and cover letters but it also helped with interviews. I would advise anyone, whether they have a job presently or have been laid off to definitely read this one. I have passed it on to friends and they all feel the same way. Thank you. Doreen Murray

Looking for a job in a recession is not fun, but this book can help. It gives practical advice for writing solid resumes (with more than 50 pages of sample resumes) and for handling job interviews.
