The Job Hunter's Catalog

Here's a guide to job hunting that puts everything you need to land the job of your dreams right at your fingertips. Organized around concise, handy features—including Do's & Don'ts, Checklists, Success Strategies, and Smart Ideas—it gives you quick access to what you need at every stage of your job search.

The Job Hunter's Catalog is enriched by the author's twenty-plus years of experience as a careers columnist and the hundreds of hints, tips, and techniques she's collected from headhunters, placement directors, recruiters, and interviewers. As a result, this book functions as a wise counselor who gives you guidance on such matters as how to dress, behave, and speak more convincingly in your job search and how to adapt this advice to your own style and personality. You'll get detailed self-check lists of things you may be doing, saying, or omitting that can hurt your chances of getting a job. You'll get just the right kind of coaching and encouragement to put you over the top and into the position you really want.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In this dubiously titled "catalog," Schmidt (The 90 Minute Resume, Peterson's Guides, 1992) provides a potpourri of hints, dos and don'ts, and strategies for the job hunter. Ranging from a single paragraph to a few pages, snippets of information cover a wide variety of job-search issues. Many of the topics (e.g., job-search strategies, rsum writing, and interviewing) are examined in far greater detail in other books (some written by Schmidt herself). However, the author covers some topics, albeit briefly, that are seldom if ever addressed, e.g., handling a flirtatious interviewer, discussing a job loss with one's children, dealing with sexual orientation in the interview, and what to do when a promised callback doesn't come. Although lacking in depth, Schmidt's work is an engaging and informative resource packed with enough practical advice to be of benefit to first-time and experienced job hunters alike.-Alan Farber, Northern Illinois Univ., DeKalb
