    Practical & Powerful

    At first, this book seemed to read too simply to be a big help. Then I went back and actually did the exercises and thought about it. That made all the difference. This book helped clarify my objectives, focus my search and contribute to my ultimate success. I have landed a great job in a career path I wouldn't have otherwise pursued. Thank you Rachelle Canter for laying out your program in such an easy to use format.

    This book helped to show me the errors of my ways and how to start managing my career instead of my career managing me. The advice regarding writing my resume was essential to developing a winning resume.
