Get Hired! by Mara Braverman is an excellent resource for anyone looking to for their first job. It's clear and concise and enjoyable to read. I enjoyed how the short chapters were each focused on one topic and offered very practical and useful advice. From writing a resume to best practices during an interview, everything the potential job seeker could need to know is contained in this book.

Get Hired! 20 Steps to Your First Professional Job — from Building Your Resume to Proving You’re the Person to Hire at first glance seems to join a host of similar-sounding job-hunting strategy guides; but this book holds an important difference in identifying the process of creating and marketing a professional image, and thus stands out above 'how to write a resume' and 'how to conduct an interview' approaches. The entire focus is not upon producing content, but on standing out from the crowd to get hired. This involves some twenty different steps that, yes, includes resumes and interviews; but also features the specific approaches that differentiate 'stand-out' from 'average'. It's easy to say one should present a professional appearance; something else to identify the elements that identify 'professional'. Get Hired! achieves this with chapters of detail that pinpoint these differences and include many considerations other career books miss, such as making sure that one's credit report is powerful and accurate, and making a convincing case to a company that you're the one they should hire over others. Many elements are involved in handling situations and circumstances to ensure such a polished attitude at all stages of the process. It's all about being not just a 'good fit' for the job, but a great fit. Where other books admonish with generalities, this one offers precise paths to success. Where other books adopt logical processes for producing acceptable results, Get Hired! always identifies the elements that differentiate 'average and acceptable' from 'great'. And, it's these elements that will land the job!
