After spending the last 10 years in a big company, performing several roles and having the opportunity to perform and learn activities across several departments of the company - I can feel how time has come for me to make a change and a next step in my career. And I found this book at the right time - as I find it very helpful in structuring career plans and thoughts. A must read for anyone planning to build a career and for anyone wanting to do a job change - it really provides that outside in perspective needed for a good decision. I have also liked the fact that after each chapter the author takes sometime to highlight the key takeaway - making it very easy for any reader to structure thoughts and learning.

This is a great resource that helps people--women in particular--maximize their job search. Lisa Quast really does offer a unique perspective on how to go about doing that, and offers advice that I've never heard before. This book definitely made me think--Quast asks us important questions to consider, as well as tips and ways to go about changing your career if you're just not happy with what you're doing. Some of the most helpful parts of the book was definitely the section about preparing your resume and interview tips! A great book that can be referenced again and again, with lots of important points and great tips.Very helpful.

As an 'older' professional, age 47, I was having a tough time finding a new job after a layoff. Both of Lisa's books helped me. My professional skills were up-to-date, but not my networking activities, nor how I was going about looking for a new role. I wasn't outdated, but I needed some polishing to compete with the 20 and 30-somethings out there. I used the book as a sort of step-by-step primer for my search, particularly interviewing. It's been a big help. I'd recommend Secrets of a Hiring Manager to anyone who is looking for a new job - whether you are currently employed or not. It guides you through all of the necessary components of a good search, and helps you prepare for the interviewing process (which is my toughest challenge). It's incredibly helpful.

I found this book to be very helpful.The author does an excellent job of what to do in certain situations. I really appreciate the examples that she gave from her own personal experience as well as the stories of her clients. This helped to paint a better picture for me of what my options are. Additionally I found the exercises in Appendix B to be extremely helpful.This is an excellent guide that takes you from the point of wanting to walk out of the door of your job to guiding you to make the right decision to transition to the next part of your career.

This is an amazing book for anyone and everyone who is seeking out a career in any given situation! I am a 4th year pharmacy student that decided to apply for fellowship programs, which meant I had to go through many, many rounds of interviews. I could not tell you how many times I referred to this book for questions I had in regards to interview prep. Especially loved chapter 28 "modify your communication style for panel interviews" since a majority of my interviews were in this format. Nonetheless I found every chapter valuable, from making sure to prepare anticipated questions and answers for interviews to writing notes immediately after the interview. I highly recommend this book to everyone -- graduating students, those who are unemployed and looking for work, those wanting to transition to a new occupation, etc. It is definitely a must read to better prepare oneself for obtaining any desired job!

What a great resource! This book encompasses the essentials that job seekers need to land the most desirable opportunity. I found so many chapters to be helpful, especially in our time with so many avenues available for social networking, it is key to update, such as LinkedIn profiles (which I did after reading this book). This book is a wonderful guide that really walks you through the steps each job seeker should take when wanting to land a job - from conducting due diligence (i.e. proper research on company) to really evaluating one self's goals and aspirations. I definitely recommend this book to not only job seekers but also individuals who are committed to personal and career growth.

My son is getting ready to look for his first job out of college and I want to be helpful. I also have a very close friend who can't seem to get past the first interview as he continues his job search. Author Lisa Quast's "Secrets of a Hiring Manager" is the best job search guide I have found - hands down. Written by someone who knows the business from the inside out, Quast covers everything you need to know about the job search process. From the online stuff such as LinkedIn and conducting research, to resumes and personal branding, all the way up to the interview and negotiating the offer. This is a great guide that I have passed on to several people already. Definitely recommend.
