Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Career Planning and Adult Development Journal, Summer 2009
“Provides a straightforward approach to landing the job you really want by understanding the realities of today’s marketplace and the steps you need to take to rise above the competition…Written in a conversational and clever style.”
Library Journal
Two dozen articles, previously published in MBA Jungle magazine and its related free online journals, have been adapted and revised by their editors into this eight-chapter book. The informal, conversational narrative will appeal to the targeted college-age audience. The first half of the book deals with more general job-hunting topics and is useful for those seeking careers in any profession; early chapters give advice on networking, avoiding mistakes, acing interviews, determining what recruiters are looking for, and closing an interview effectively. The remaining chapters are directed more toward those in the MBA-related fields of finance, management, marketing, and accounting and focus on what MBAs may encounter, e.g., the idiosyncrasies and expectations of consulting, switching careers among various business fields, handling headhunters, and, finally, negotiating job offers. The overall advice is current, authoritative, sound, and full of useful examples from real-life situations while emphasizing throughout the need for research and thorough preparation. Recommended for all career collections.-Stanley P. Hodge, Ball State Univ. Lib., Muncie, IN
