I strongly recommend this book to anyone whether they are just starting their career, established in their career, stay-at-home parent, in job transition, volunteer, or re-entering the workforce. It was recommended to me as a useful tool for someone re-entering the workforce after being a stay-at-home mother for a few years. It gives an objective and strategy with a step-by-step guide on preparing for and conducting a 20-minute networking meeting complete with a cheat sheet. The information in this book is straight forward, helpful and universal!
