The big question I suppose is did it help me get a job... and the answer is yes!
The author has a really good writing style which explained all the simple things I needed to do to improve myself, things I wouldn't have thought of doing to prepare for all the interviews and assessment centres I need to go to.
By constantly taking action to put the odds in your favour, from application to final interview, the book has really helped with my strategy to gain employment.
If you need help getting work, no matter what your background is, this is the book for you! All I can say is I wish I had read it sooner.
I slightly know this author through working at the same company for a while and saw the link and bought this book so I can start early to think about helping my own children. I initially only read the first chapter using the `Look inside' feature, but by then I was so intrigued (and amused by the author's rather graphic style) I had to buy it to get the rest.
I graduated some time ago and I've been okay with getting work but I wish I'd known much of this information earlier in my career. I could have made some of my interviews and my recent pitches for contract-work (I'm self-employed now) so much better. Reading made my heart pound as I was forced to relive some of my own interviews in the past and felt again the stress from those times. I pity the author, living through some of the situations he describes! I suppose the experiences helped him write this, though.
The analogy of chasing a job being like a hunt and a guerrilla war in the jungle is a good one and helped me to get a feel for the type of focus needed for job interviews today. Especially useful were the in-depth techniques presented with which to rehearse for an interview. I don't know why, it never occurred to me before to actually rehearse the questions that might come up. A real help were the questions provided in the appendix, these got me started and got me thinking, and I believe I'll be able to adapt these to my own situation very well. I'm also a lot clearer on the types of questions that get asked and how best to deal with those different types.
I'd never really thought about all of this before, I just do my day job so maybe it's not so surprising. I have an interview coming up next week and I think it will be very easy to just pick up on Chapter 5 and prepare for it better than before.
