At last, a readable, practical, job-hunting book,
This review is from: Job Hunting 3.0 : Secrets and Skills to Sell Yourself Effectively in the Modern Age (Paperback)
This book is writen in a non-patronising style, giving useful advice and explaining why you are being advised to do particular things. As a result of the explanations the advice is easier to follow, the necessary work is easier to do. The whole book is a good read but the inclusion of bullet point checklists and summaries that are fun, help to make the whole thing memorable.
Most of my own insecurities and worries about the job search were addressed in a way that gave reassurance and confidence "you are OK" is a simple, often repeated, truth. This is not just a book about how to find and apply for jobs (though it does that very well), it helps a great deal with how to deal with the whole process of job hunting, including the emotional effects of that process on you and those around you.
I am finding this book the best aide I have in my current search for new employment.
