Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Along with career transition coach and general manager of Monster Careers (www.monstercareers.com) Doug Hardy, Taylor, founder of the hugely successful Monster.com job-search site, has written a comprehensive book on finding and landing a dream job. In a manner that is neither abstruse nor condescending, he provides solid advice on what one must do. His approach is divided into four parts: "The New Job Search Basics," "Preparing Your Search," "Into the Marketplace," and "Landing the Job." Also included are exercises and questions designed to increase self-awareness at various stages of the job-seeking process, and a chapter on resources rounds out the text. Recommended for public and academic library career shelves. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

    Up-to-date counsel on finding a great job

    Few people know more about finding the right job than Jeff Taylor, founder of Monster, the world¿s leading career Web site. Taylor leaves no contact unused in this comprehensive guide, discussing every step of finding a new job, from writing a winning resume to avoiding mistakes during salary negotiations to building a productive network. In addition to his experience, he presents advice from recruiters, human resource professionals and Monster employees. So if he directs you to Monster¿s Web site a little too insistently, you can forgive him, because his book is so well written, easy to read and full of good advice. It includes a good resource list of books, Web sites and services, as well as useful exercises. We recommend this 400-page monster especially to first-time job seekers, although experienced employees seeking more money, prestige or career satisfaction may also find its tips helpful.
