Review

Jean Baur shows you how to cope with the shock, hurt, and depression of a job loss. She seems to put her arm around you and say, We can get through this together. Then she shows you a step-by-step way to go about getting that next job. Beautifully, sensitively written. --Kevin Daley, founder of Communispond and author of Talk Your Way to the Top

Jean Baur will teach you how to take control, reclaim your self-confidence, and get back to work on your terms. She presents invaluable information drawn from her 16+ years of experience as a career counselor and coach in a highly user-friendly and inspirational manner. --Chris Jones, Director, Talent Development, Corporate Human Resources, The McGraw-Hill Companies; former client

Like conversing personally with a skillful and experienced outplacement consultant. The tone is warm, encouraging, and honest. This is not just another how to write a resume book; it is about the rest of the job search process--the most important part. It presents job search problems and solutions and clearly addresses worries, concerns, and myths that I hear from every job seeker. --Claudia Gentner, former CIO, Lee Hecht Harrison

With over eleven years experience in the career transition field, I found this book a great read. It is uniquely written from a "ground level" perspective. Highly recommend it to job seekers and career coaches alike.

As somebody who once had access to Baur's employer's resources, the outplacement firm LHH, I was looking forward to reading her book.

As expected, the author provides great recommendations. She deals with your emotional well-being and leaves you with extensive practical how-to tips based upon her long outplacement experience. I especially like how Baur tackled some topics that are often overlooked, e.g., how to land a job if you feel you are overqualified or if English is not your native language. In fact, the latter topic I have seen nowhere been addressed before. Being an immigrant myself, I really thank her for this chapter. Baur also shakes up some dangerous myths like relying exclusively on the Internet to find a job. These and other great themes are in Part II "Myths, Lies, and Other Obstacles" - it is mainly this section that makes "Eliminated - Now What?" a great purchase.

Given how structured LHH's client material is, I found a certain lack of structure in Baur's book surprising. The book flow follows some kind of timeline, but you never really know where you are. Luckily, a very useful and extensive index is provided. Appendix G ("Implementation Timeline") tries to build a bridge to how to deal financially with your situation, but contains some questionable advice like "when severance runs out, cut expenses" - no, too late, you probably should cut expenses immediately when you learn about your impending job loss. Overall, the 41 chapters and the partial repetition of advice make the read a bit cumbersome. "Less would be more" and a cleaner structure be beneficial in order to ensure the reader not lose sight of the many valuable core messages and main recommendations.
