Format: Paperback
Vicki Salemi presents incisive and creative ideas on landing your dream job in New York (and is applicable to any big city job search) in this fun and useful book. The great thing about this book is that it is written in a page turning and friendly sort of way, and is easy to pick up and put down, making it a great gem from which you can pull little bits of wisdom and advice.

If you've EVER, even for only a second, imagined moving to the big city to launch your dream career after college, DO NOT DO IT WITHOUT PICKING UP THIS BOOK! As a recent grad, all I've heard for the last four years is how the job market is doomed and that I'll probably be unemployed for the rest of my life. This book, on the other hand, reinforces that living your career dreams in NYC IS POSSIBLE.... IF you're equipped with Vicki's insider tips. Vicki tells you what no one else will, in a way that no one else can. No questions are left unanswered. A must-read.

Format: Paperback
Vicki Salemi gives job hunters in big cities something that I rarely have seen in books or in the blogosphere in the last couple of years -- hope! Her creative networking tips and positive, upbeat tone make it an easy read with lots of takeaway advice. And for what it's worth, although it's marketed as a NYC book, I think the advice is universal to any city or any job search.
