Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Students, recent graduates, and others attracted by work opportunities in foreign countries will benefit from this new source, whose purpose is "to gather together in one place the broadest collection of effective online and offline resources for finding international jobs." Claiming that using the Internet is more effective for obtaining international jobs than domestic ones, Lauber, the author of several guides on finding jobs in the public and private sectors, discusses in detail the advantages of utilizing the Internet while job hunting. These advantages include searching databases of jobs that fit one's employment and location criteria, placing one's name in r sum banks, signing on for e-mail notification, speeding the transmission of resumes, using news groups for networking opportunities, and obtaining current country information. Lauber also warns readers to beware of potential pitfalls and gives advice on how to recognize and avoid scams. Some 1200 online and print resources are organized into worldwide gateways and into eight geographical regions further subdivided alphabetically by country. Each resource is covered by a paragraph describing its services, its strengths, any charges to users, and recommendations on how to use it most effectively. Both a "Resource Index" and a "Topic Index" are useful in narrowing one's search to occupations and countries of most interest. Readers need only beware that most graphics illustrating web-site pages are separated from their related text by several to hundreds of pages and that a few advertisements for recommended print resources appear. This well-balanced reference is strongly recommended for academic and public library career collections. Stanley P. Hodge, Ball State Univ.
