Build you Resume - Rock an interview 10 April 2011
By ConcertKatie - Published on
Format: Paperback
Knock 'Em Dead by Martin Yate is the Ultimate Job Search Guide and has recently been updated for 2011. Whether you are unemployed or looking to switch jobs (either now or in the future) this book is a great guide and full of great tips to help you get not only your resume, but also your mind, in shape.
The first part of the book goes over how to make your resume be competitive. At the end of each chapter there are activities for the reader to do to help figure out what items need to be added to the resume as well as how to phrase them.
Once you have your resume and cover letters set, the next part is all about the next step in the job hunt - the Interviews! There are examples of questions that might pop up in interviews and how you should best answer them to promote yourself in a way that will keep the company interested. There are tips on how to ace a phone interview, in person interview, and even a meal time interview. There are details on what you should wear, what your body language should portray and what you should ask.

Knock Em Dead 2011 22 April 2011

Knock em Dead 2011

I recently received this book via I was really excited to receive the book, but I was kinda disappointed when I finally read it. Overall this is a good book and has a lot of useful information, but not a lot of new information. Most of the stuff was things that I already knew and could find in any library or with a simple google search.

What information it did have was very well written and very good. I loved the way the book is written. It is easy to read and it flows well. I also enjoyed how easy it is to actually look something up in the book. It is laid out in way that is easy to read and easy to follow.

Overall, I was a bit disappointed... but for someone that needs a tangible book for this information rather than an internet search, it would be a great option.

Just might be essential 2 July 2011
By J. Green - Published on
Format: Paperback
I've never had much trouble putting together a great resume or doing well in an interview. Some things I learned in classes many years ago, and others just by going on interviews. But I've been out of school for a number of years and it's been a while since I last changed jobs.

And it's a very different economy and job hunting situation now. Not only are jobs more scarce but there's a lot more competition in this down economy. And while I've only been looking passively for a while now, I find it's not as easy to even get interviews as it once was.

Job hunting can be more difficult in this highly computerized world. Resumes go into databases and may not even be reviewed by a person unless the computer selects them. Martin Yate discusses ways to get your resume selected by using important keywords and how to figure out what they are - and his method will take some real effort. He talks about how to deal with the interview and difficult questions, and how to negotiate when an offer is coming. He also leans heavily upon the old practice of networking - something I've never been very good at but which has worked since the days of Benjamin Franklin! He even follows up with information on what employment areas are in demand right now.

While this is a very good update of an old standard, it's not perfect. The writing can feel a little dense at times and occasionally it seems like a topic is over-covered or gets repetitive. The approach might look similar to the "Idiot's Guides" or "... for Dummies" books, but this one is a lot more serious. It also took me a while before I realized I probably didn't need to read every single part of this book and it can be treated as a reference. I also wish there had been a little more detail on the format of resumes or how to do a cover letter instead of having to consult the author's other publications.

But this is probably the very best place to start your job search, especially if it's been a while or if you're a recent graduate. I'm really not a fan of the "self-help" type of books, but I'll make an exception for this one - this one just might be essential. (I received this book from Thomas Nelson Publishers blogger program.)

Gain confidence and feel prepared! 8 Jun. 2011
By angela - Published on
Format: Paperback
I decided to try out the 2011 Knock 'em Dead book and see how it went. I just so happened to have a job interview scheduled, so I thought I would read the book and see how effective it really was for me. As I browsed through all the different sections--from how to find a job, to the tough interview questions, to even what to do after you do or do not get the job...this book covered everything!

An hour before the interview I found myself trying to go over the section that covered tough interview questions. I liked that it gave answers that weren't rehearsed and boring, but ones that you could adapt to fit your own life experience and personality.

The outcome: well, I sadly did not get the job. The interviewer however did say that I seemed like a confidant person that gave a very good interview, and if it weren't for the lack of professional experience (I am a recent grad...) then the job would have been mine! Although this is not great for me...I would say the book was a success in the end because it did what I wanted it to do when I read it, and that was to help me feel prepared and confident for the interview.
