Top Customer Reviews

By A Customer on May 25, 2000
Format: Paperback
This book is well-written and was extremely helpful to me. The author, who also has started the PIT oragnization, has provided a resource that otherwise seems to have been missing in the world of job-searching/unemployment. The book goes through the different emotions and practical steps that someone laid off form work must (usually will) go through on the way back to employment. Actual stories of people who where downsized or just plain laid-off, and the description of steps that they took on the road to reemployment (effective networking, collaborative job-searching, and effective interviewing) are inspiring and insightful. In all- a worthwhile read.

Career Bounce-Back! was an invaluable tool. When I lost my job, I couldn't believe that it could happen to me. One minute I was angry, the next minute depressed. My life was "out of control." I thought it was all my fault, until I read Career Bounce-Back! After reading the book I realized that you could manage through the emotional wave that unemployment brings, and also learned the importance that networking plays in the re-employement process. Career Bounce-Back! helped me get the job.
