Review

"The message I had was more than about the book," Chiagouris says. "Young people or anyone has to know their value and be proud of it. No one else is going to know your value unless you market it. And if you can't sell yourself, what can you sell?"

Format: Paperback
This book provides excellent 'insider info' on what it takes to get a job in today's ever so competitive marketplace. It contains very detailed tips and tricks on how to prepare for a productive job search. The book also supplies detailed questions on what to expect from prospective employers during the interview process. This intelligence is of utmost importance when you need to be on top of your game to ultimately get that dream job.

I highly recommend this book to all grads and believe that professors, too, should be marketing it to their students when they are about to enter the most crucial time of searching for a job. The advice in this book can really help these job seekers stand out in the eyes of a prospective employer.

This book is the sole reason that I have a job and house less than a year after graduating while my more-intelligent friends with more marketable degrees are still unemployed or working in food-service. As a business student with an interest in marketing, I was amazed at how blind I was to the concept of marketing yourself to employers much the same way a corporation markets products to you. Simple concepts like creating your own business cards can really make you stand out, and in today's depressing job market you need to do whatever it takes to be noticed in a positive light. Networking strategies from this book are far more valuable than the price of the book. I will be buying this for all of my younger cousins as they graduate, and you should buy it for any new graduates you love as well!

I purchased this book as a graduation gift because the title really caught my attention and the fact that the author is a marketing professional that has worked on major accounts AND is a professor in a university made me feel that I have stumbled across the perfect gift. I know that recent college grads have the unfortunate task of overcoming the struggle to find their first job after college in a difficult job market. I think this book will help focus the graduate on what is essential to landing a job--and not repeating the typical advice that is often found in other job search books. I especially liked the chapter with the sample interview questions and answers. Chapter 3 is packed with useful info! That chapter alone was worth purchasing this book.

Format: Paperback
As a person who straddles both the academic world as a part-time professor and an executive at a small company I strongly endorse the approach taken in this book to managing the post-graduation job search. College students are faced with a workplace that has become increasingly difficult to penetrate. Advances in technology have allowed companies to both become both more productive with existing workers and to outsource jobs to less expensive international markets. When combined with many experienced and trained employees who have been laid off domestically competing for lower-level positions it has become critical that students use effective marketing tools to sell themselves to potential employers. Students are also faced with college placement offices and placement professionals whose budgets have been slashed diminishing their ability to help with career placement and advice.

I have interacted with Dr. Chiarouris on both a professional and academic basis and can attest to his uncanny ability to help design and implement effective marketing solutions. The approach taken in this book is similar to one deployed many times for product and service brands. It is a clever marketing strategy and one that if deployed as suggested in the book is sure to help increase a college grads chances of landing an attractive job after graduation.

I received this book as a gift from my Professor when I lost my full-time position at a firm post graduation. I can begin by saying the information in this book is invaluable in getting a job. All the best advice you've ever been given by your teachers and various professionals throughout your career is compiled here in a step-by-step guide to finding a great job. The book guides you through every intricate detail from narrowing down job choices to what truly interests you, intricately preparing your resume according to a job position, mock interview questions, as well as salary negotiations (once you get the job!) There are also many other answers to questions that you may have along the way. You learn to market yourself as an individual and begin to think of yourself as a brand. The job search is rocky after college and thanks to this book, it's been smooth sailing. 5 STARS!

Format: Paperback
Wow!!! If you are looking for concise, useful information, this is the book. This is not another run of the mill books but offers clear, pertinent tactics to make a prospective employer want you on their team. Obviously, Dr Chiagouris is quite informed in today's job market and directs us on how to avoid common errors that frequently get our applications trashed.

His section on Resumes is very enlightening, and quite astounding. If you think all the resume software and guides are all you need, then you better re-think it. To me this section was profound and extremely valuable. If not for anything else, this section alone is worth its weight in diamonds.

I tip my hat to Dr. Chiagouris for a well thought out book, impeccably and intelligently presented.
