Quite simply, explains Monster.com founder Taylor, "this book is about finding and landing your dream job." Its not just for the unemployedthere are practical tips for recent grads, people looking for something better and anyone who might be affected by the current climate of uncertain job security. Even individuals who are satisfied with their jobs might want to take a look at the "never settle" employee cycle, which involves taking ones professional skill set to the next level, and always being ready for the next great thing. Taylor guides readers through the new basics of searching for a job, including developing what he calls a F.A.M.E. attitude: Think like a Free agent; train like and Athlete; prepare like a Marketer; and work like an Entrepreneur. He also offers sound advice in the realms of networking, telling a good story about ones professional achievements, creating a "resume that sells" and much more. Worksheets, templates and schedules within the chapters are straightforward and user-friendly, and many of them are available online at Monster.com, as indicated by the "book-to-web" designations throughout the volume.
