Lowstuter's "In Search of the Perfect Job" was excellent in its first edition. The second edition is even better. As a marketer, I like how the book begins with personal strategic planning -- defining what you offer, and what constitutes a great work "fit" for you -- and progresses into the tactics with which you can identify target companies, tell your story, and negotiate offers.

This is an insightful, practical, personal strategic planning tool for executives, and for those who aspire to be. While the book is organized for those actively conducting an executive job search, the thought processes and exercises are also very helpful for anyone wanting to proactively take steps toward achieving greater satisfaction in their career. Someone considering entrepreneurship after working in established corporate environments will likely find Chapter 6 quite relevant and useful.

I've bought multiple copies of this book to give to people I know who can benefit from it -- I think it's that good.

A "must have" book for any executive in transition or looking to make a change. The interview advice alone is tremendously valuable, including the "three phases of the interview" and a very extensive list of great questions that the job seeker should be asking the potential employer. Plus Clyde has an entertaining style that makes reading this book a pleasure.

Great book. Somewhat written for the higher-end executive, but good for all professionals. I am an engineer and found it very helpful. The book gives great insight, tips, and how to's - resume, interview, elevator speech, etc. My wife who was re-entering the job market used it also. It was not quite as practical for her, but still helpful.

We run a not for profit agency dedicated to teaching people how to put together a successful job search. Clyde Lowstuter's book is an amazing tool--very practical with many worksheets and exercises that put structure into the job search process. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is in a job search, but even for those who may be considering a change in job.

This tool is a "must have" for executives in transition. The 8 Step process is logical and thought provoking, and many of the concepts explained in the book will have value long after you get connected.

I highly recommend it to everyone actively managing their career.

The book has some very helpful techniques, hints and examples of how to find a job. Although the book is somewhat outdated it still contains useful ideas. I keep it handy when writing correspondence to a perspective employer.

This is a practical, comprehensive, easy to use guide that I recommend for anyone seeking a new job or thinking about it. The book can be read cover to cover or you can easily focus on the areas where you need the most help. True to form, the book is easy to read and offers terrific advice that you won't see anywhere else.
