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
