This review is from: Job Hunting 3.0: Secrets and skills to sell yourself effectively in the modern age (Paperback)
My wife bought this book to prepare for her interview, and as usual, I have read it as well. It is a lengthy book of about 300 pages and I picked up some good ideas and strategies from it. By the way, wife has got this new job and she did not like the book. An interesting fact is isn't it? Makes you ponder, why? Perhaps she is natural and only we, fools, read that stuff!
* It covers the whole process of job hunting,
* I liked the idea of job hunting campaign vs process,
* Useful information about how to act in the test centres,
* Has some new points on how to negotiate after the job offer
Even better ifs:
* There is lots of 'you should' in the book and not enough stuff to motivate you to do exercises,
* A bit too lengthy for what you get,
* There is a lot common sense advise which we already know
Overall it scored 4 out of 5 and it is an interesting book on a subject. For things like CV, cover letter, interview questions you have to read other books, so, if you are still in it, there is a lot more homework to do... Good luck.
P.S. The Interview Book by James Innes was an eye opener for me on a subject of the interview - I have realised how much out of the game I was. Strongly recommend it.
