Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
[Students ask] 'How can I distinguish myself from the many others out there?'...I recommend The Job Hunting Guide.—Tribune Media Services
Library Journal
There are hundreds of job-hunting guides on the market, from Richard Nelson Bolles's What Color Is Your Parachute? to Martin John Yate's Resumes That Knock 'Em Dead. What sets this guide apart is its focus on preparing college graduates to enter the competitive job market and its affiliation with CampusCareerCenter.com, a popular employment web site for college students. The Krannichs, authors of more than 35 career books (e.g., High Impact Resumes and Interview for Success), have organized the book into 13 chapters, each focusing on one aspect of the job-searching process, starting with the importance of self-assessment and the formulation of an employer-oriented objective. Other chapters include advice on researching potential employers, writing effective r sum s and cover letters, forming networks, interviewing, negotiating a salary and benefits, turning a job into a long-term career, and much more. The final chapter profiles over 50 employers who regularly recruit college graduates for internships as well as part-time and full-time positions. Self-tests, worksheets, and useful lists and facts abound. Most libraries can't stock enough career resource books, and this one is certainly worth the modest price. The only drawback for libraries is the abundance of worksheets. Recommended for public and academic libraries.
