I was unfortunate to find myself suddenly unemployed a few months ago. In my career I have hired people and I have interviewed for prospective positions a fair amount of time. Do not mistake past successes for an ability to find a job in this current market. By employing Bill Humbert's advice in this well written and easily read book, I became employed in two weeks. His advice works! Period.

Format: Paperback
In the past, looking for a job was not a "science": you simply filled out an application or sent in a resume, waited for a request for an interview (or not), and then waited for a "yes/no" phone call. As we moved from the 80's into the 90's and then the 2000's, more people are entering the work force in general. Couple that with high unemployment rates, and it's no longer the simple game it used to be. That's where this book comes in.

I have read a great deal of information and written articles about job/career changes. Taking into account all I have researched, this book is absolutely at the top of my list and here are a few of the reasons why.

1) The way the information is presented. Readers aren't looking for paragraphs and paragraphs of information. Some people simply don't learn that way. This book offers thought provoking questions, actionable lists, chapter summaries, and the ideal amount of "real world" stories.

2) The goals acronym SCAMPs can easily be used by ANYONE, for ANYTHING. I found this worked for a recent personal situation in which I had to make a decision and needed something to help me put a plan into place I could stick with.

3) The "outside the box" information, especially using a social networking site such as LinkedIn. I always viewed this site as another Facebook: however, I was wrong. I never really saw the value LinkedIn provides when it comes to career. A feature called "Answers" that I never knew existed intrigued me. It lets you establish yourself as an "expert" and gives you this status recognition when you have six answers chosen as the best answers.

4) The behind the scenes info people often forget about.

* Methods, current methods *better* than the giant mistake of submitting online job applications [ Basically you should toss any jobseeking book recommending that you submit online job applications. ]
* Being good to yourself [ while still being diligently productive in ways he specifies ], rebuilding yourself, being good to others

...& there are many more good emphases in this book.

Because of this system i am getting things done daily. & i have needed optimism.

Bill Humbert is an extraordinarily good person. & he is a deeply experienced corporate recruiter. I am writing this review to say, let these 2 good factors to heal & to help you, too.

I bought the book and then the online version. What is good about the online version is that you can highlight sections and then copy and paste to a document so you can reference things and not have to go back and get it from the book.This has helped my son job hunting and resume writing. I passed it on to several of his friends as well.

Bill Humbert knocked it out of the ball park in compiling some of the best practices, tips, and techniques to landing a job in today's marketplace! He lays it out in a very digestible format that walks you step-by-step through the nuances and intricacies of finding a job, what to say, what NOT to say, developing a great resume, networking techniques, interviewing skills, salary negotiation strategies, counter offers, and even resignations. Highly recommend this book to college students, recent graduates, professionals considering going back to the workforce, high-level executives, and recruiters and headhunters. Really enjoyed Bill's sense of humor and real-life experiences he shared throughout the book. Great read! Thanks Bill!
