Format: Paperback
I was amazed at how valuable the concepts presented in this book are! The authors draw on extensive experience helping people in all variety of careers find and get new jobs. Most impressive was the attention to pursuing your individual calling, the way of making a living that matches your interests, skills, and talents. This is a very readable book and the advice is all very practical. I recommend it highly.

Format: Paperback
I like this book because it lives up to the promise of the subtitle, How to find satisfying work in this topsy-turvey world. It tells me precisely what to do, why to do it, and what to watch out for in useful, real life terms to find the job that fits me.
The book is a fast read - under 175 pages. But it packs a wallop in a tightly knit package. Read it through once, then use it as a guideline to chart your career transition. A generous appendix (35+ pages) is included in that 175 page total. Use the appendices for examples of planning and carrying out the job search, writing cover letters and resumes, developing action plans, organizing data and follow-through, researching industries and companies, interviewing, and doing sample proposals. Of course, there are plenty of "how-to" examples in the body of the text, too. Be sure to check out the skills word sets on pages 39-43.
Anyone who is still reading the want ads and sending out resumes to find the right job needs this book. Gross and Paskill have a new way to go about job search/career transition that can really make a difference. Even people who already have jobs can use these techniques with their current employer, so you don't have to be unemployed to find these techniques valuable.
The game plan that Gross and Paskill present makes sense and is very "do-able," something I appreciate because so many books on this subject seem overwhelmingly complex. But I guess 18 years of teaching this process at their CareerMakers training center (according to the Introduction) have forced the authors to figure out what works for real people.

Format: Paperback
If someone were to offer you a job guranteed to provide enjoyment, meaning, and purpose in your life, would you accept? There is just such a job available within the reach of each individual job seeker. How is it that so few in today's society locate such jobs?
Locating a soul-satisfying job is a type of work in and of itself. Most of us received little, if any, valid training in how to consciously approach the job search in order to produce the desired result: a job congruent with who I am and what interests me in life. The book, "Want A New Better Fantastic Job?" provides the training and job search methods that most of us never received. Job search tools are introduced and demonstrated. A flexible "new way" job search process is outlined describing the steps necessary to craft or locate a soul-satisifying job. Remember, like any other new set of skills to be learned in life, job search skills are learned and developed through exercise, practice, and patience.
"Want A New Better Fantastic Job?" provides the tools and teaches the process necessary for a successful job search. This invaluable book, co-authored by long time career management partners, Pam Gross and Peter Paskill, is complete, concise, and "digestible", a quality piece of work. The process being taught and shared through this insightful book has been tested and refined through the real life-work experiences of unique, ordinary people during the past eighteen years. This vital job seekers manual includes positive tips and suggestions learned from thousands of past job search experiences. Many of the most common mistakes and pitfalls are chronicled as well.

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Steve Watson on February 22, 2001
Format: Paperback
Although at first blush it would seem that this book is about how to find a New Better and Fantastic Job it is really about how to align your personal passions with a way to make a living. The authors have spent the last 18 years helping people understand the key elements of their lives that they want to be remembered for, an exit interview with God. Since the vast majority of people(over 80%) dislike their jobs this book is an invaluable tool to allow people a methodology to understand what is important in their lives and how to align their careers with what they consider to be the most meaningful. For anyone who takes their lives and careers seriously this book is "must" to be read.

Paul Sybor, my follow up to the March 2001 review that I wrote:

2014 already! At age 60, I'm much more inclined to agree with John Lennon's insight to his young son: "Life is what happens while you're busy making other plans." For me, life is what I make of it--I focus on helping other people. I live now--make today an enjoyable day.

Were it possible, I'd delete the 2001 review that I wrote.
To all, be well. Paul Sybor.
