Alison Doyle has crafted a superb resource for readers who are considering a job or career change. She uses easy to understand language to guide job seekers/career changers through a successful process from self-assessment and career research through job acquisition. Having worked as a Career Services Director for almost 25 years, I found Alison's approach to be fundamentally sound and grounded in the best practices within the discipline. She integrates traditional strategies and resources with sound advice about tapping digital resources and fills the book with links to helpful websites. Alison's many years as a Career Service professional at the college level and as the Job Search Guide for About.com have clearly enabled her to communicate about this topic in a concrete way with lots of real world examples. I highly recommend this resource for those searching for the right job and career.

Alison Doyle gives concrete, step-by-step advice for even the most neurotically thorough job hunter. It's comprehensive--most appealing to me was how it walks you through interviewing minutiae, and even explains how to research pay rates. This book is an absolute gem.

Format: Paperback
Alison Doyle writes a great basic job search guide. I especially like this book for people who haven't looked for a position for a long time. By reading this book, a job seeker can get a total picture of required steps to survive in today's search for employment -- very different from a mere 5 or 10 years ago. The generic "everything" resume won't work in today's job search.

The basics Doyle covers start at the beginning: What are your best skills for today's job market? She continues in understandable language to explain the steps required to design your search plan, and recommends some of the best websites for your campaign. She crystallizes the basics of a cover letter and the formats of resumes -- your all-important application documents!

The stories Doyle recounts are helpful as examples of job seekers who learn lessons the hard way and then turn around their search strategies as they heed her up-to-date job search knowledge.

In brief, Doyle presents the best, short tips gathered from her years of serving as About.com's job search guide. I highly recommend this guidebook. --

The writing style is geared toward a younger audience; although there are tips for older workers too. It is good and it was free.

I always get a bit nervous when someone claims to be or is touted as being an "expert." But in Alison's case, the term is applicable and very well deserved.

Excellent book, well written and is a valuable resource for job hunters, regardless of the industry.
