Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Through hundreds of interviews, bulleted tips and first-hand accounts of their professional experiences, the authors—all fairly recent college grads themselves—succeed at producing a guide that is as "comprehensive and unboring as possible." What sets this how-to apart from the others is its tone (think Seinfeld), its honest treatment of the challenges recent graduates face in today’s market and its focus on succeeding once you get your foot in the door. The authors identify nine steps on the career path, from pinpointing your interests and strengths, to landing an interview, to succeeding as a new employee, to picking yourself up again after being laid off or fired. The authors’ idealistic treatment of finding career passion ("Be wise, listen and move in the direction of your dreams") is balanced by their no-nonsense approach to office politics ("It’s crucial to manage three aspects of your work persona: your clothing, your desk and your hours"). A particularly thorough financial section, Show Me the Money, includes a budget worksheet, helpful saving tips and a breakdown of benefits and tax terminology.

This is the first book I've bought on job hunting, because I'm about to graduate from college this May. I loved all of the jokes and puns that the authors put in the chapters to keep your attention. I really dug the section where they showed what good and bad cover letters looked like. And the part where they talked about the most common interview questions and how to answer them was really cool too.

A down-to-earth career advice book with a healthy sense of humor. Great insiders' tips and interviews with those in the field. Colloquial yet substantive, irreverent yet right on point.

I found this book to be extremely helpful. The tips from other recent college grads are terrific. The conversational style of the book makes it both a quick and enjoyable read. It is nice to finally read a career advice book written by a peer.
