This book is both brilliant and inspiring. Every excuse for calling someone unemployable--from body odor to burglary, is met with savvy creativity and solutions that turn your head around. Angel and Harney don't let up until they've got YOU convinced that No One Is Unemployable. And this stuff works in the real world. Genius level advice in the most down-to-earth, usable terms, author of Damn Good Resume Guide

Every member of the staff at our non-profit job search and retention program has a well-worn copy of this book at their side. Helps us let our clients take ownership of the job search process. Also highly recommend this author's Career Development Curriculum and Materials for the hard to place.

Format: Paperback
While this book is not just about disabilities, it is by far the best, most useful book for job seekers (or employed people) who have any kind of problem getting hired. It is organized in a kind of encyclopedia style and discusses an amazing number of problems that people may have at work. The book takes the EMPLOYER'S POINT OF VIEW as well as discussing ways that job hunters or employees can respond to objections. The author also suggests specific ways that employers should approach employees about issues that are problematic.

In addition to disabilities, the authors also discuss having been on welfare, having a criminal background, issues with chronic lateness, having been fired, memory problems, and former drug or alcohol addiction. The discussion of offensive body odor is a great example.

Most job-hunting-for-people-with-disabilities books focus primarily on people with visible, physical disabilities that do not affect their job performance if they have technological accomodations in place. Hidden disabilities need different solutions and even the ADA keeps changing.

Unfortunately, the ADA does not protect against prejudice and that is what this book focuses upon. The book pays a lot of attention to issues dealing with co-workers. While a boss may be accomodating, co-workers often are not.

The authors show you how you can be the best possible employee with the right job. But it just isn't possible to explain why you would be the best possible hire if you don't know what the employer is, and isn't, looking for. For example, the authors give specific advice for ex-con's and recovering alcoholics to explain why they would be the BEST possible employees for certain jobs, not just "ok" employees.

Helps potential employees think about things from the employer's point ov view. Very readable and easily understandable, if you don't have a counselor to walk you through it.

An indispenseble resorce for job and career developers. The side bars and graphic elements make it easy to refer to. Excellent ideas for resolving tough barriers to employment. Authors have included a section on "How to use this book". Helpful and a time saver! Thanks to the authors for this great guide.

Format: Paperback
I was a Career Development Specialist and having trouble with at-risk and hard to place job search candidates. I bought this book as a resource to help me, and it truly was effective in giving me ways to address the difficult issues that my customers faced, but no one wants to talk about. I have had people sitting at my desk with missing teeth and a horrible case of halitosis, and you just know that no matter the persons credentials, they will be hard to place because we live in a superficial society.

This book is able to hit on the head issues like these, or like past criminal history with the professionalism and effectiveness you would not believe. I think this book has a special annointing and so do the people who wrote it, you can just feel it in the words!

As a last comment, I never realized I would have to use it for myself when I got laid off from my job. I was faced with taking the same advice I gave to my customers since my resume positions me as a "job hopper" and within one week of being laid off by using this book, I followed it exactly and I had one interview and several quality job referrals within one week of applying the principals on myself.

Look at the other reviews and take some advice...this book is a MUST HAVE for any career and employment professional, and it should be mandatory for government Employment Specialist who work with diverse and hard to place populations all the time.

Although this is an older book, the points made continue to be valid. If you work with individuals with barriers to employment, this book should be in your library.

Well thought thru from the needs of both the employee and the employer. Concrete examples of discussing and overcoming tough issues that many folk are truly certain cannot be overcome. Winning negotiation and interaction recommendaitons that invite both parties to develop the type of shared expectations that not only lead to hiring .... but a sound foundation for a successful working partnership
