First of all, these "find a job" books seem to be plagued by reviewers who are friends of the authors and write glowing reviews for them... Hover your cursor over the reviewer's names and see how many of them just wrote ONE review in their entire history of reviews: the one for THIS book. Coincidence? Forgive me if I'm cynical but I've seen this with a lot of these books, now and I can't help but wonder how legitimate they are.

Okay, as to reviewing this book:

I was very hopeful it would help me. And it does have some concrete info about cover letters and resumes that is probably good, but much of it is the same ole same ole info you will read in most of these "job search" books. While the info may be good, it is nothing you haven't heard before if you've done much investigation at all, and so it is sort of a waste of money to find info that you can find all over the internet and in any other book. No?

Here's the bottom line info this book imparts:
1) Ra ra ra! Sis boom bah! You CAN find a job!
That is to say, the author tries to get you out of your depression and pessimism and get you to feeling that you can find a job (even though in reality maybe you really can't).
2) Network, network, network. Networking is the answer.
What if you don't KNOW anyone who is in the kind of job you want? What if your friends are all in completely different fields? What if not one friend has EVER helped you find a job, ever? What if you're not an outgoing person and really hate "networking"? Well, then you're screwed and this book won't help you.
3) Job ads won't help you. Internet job searches won't help you. You've got to network, network, network. (See #2, above.)
4) Target a company you want to work for and go after jobs there.

Ford Myers' just-released book, "Get The Job You Want, Even When No One's Hiring," is the perfect Survival Toolkit for people who want to manage their career, as opposed to having their career manage them! The text is easy to read, but don't let that fool you into thinking that it's light on content. This book is like a lifetime career handbook, with a lot of important self-evaluation tools, job search strategies and online resources.

If you're like me, you'll read it through the first time, not wanting to stop to do the exercises because they'll slow you down. The entire time I was reading, I felt like the author was talking directly to me. These have been my experiences and my frustrations. Reading this book will probably feel the same for you, too.

After I completed my first reading, I realized that this isn't a "read it and put it on the shelf" kind of book. I went back and did the exercises, and they proved to be very helpful. I actually feel excited about setting myself on the correct career path! Suddenly, it feels less overwhelming and less lonely to do what I need to do. And with "Get The Job You Want, Even When No One's Hiring," I have expert help to guide me through the process.

I am giving "Get The Job You Want, Even When No One's Hiring" an excellent rating for several reasons. You get a lot of bang for your buck. This comprehensive resource covers all aspects of the job search, and is a workbook too with exercises to help you gain clarity on what you have to offer and what you want. Also many sample documents, such as resumes, cover letters, job tracking forms, etc., are included - all of which can also be accessed online via the author's website. Mr. Myers states that the job search is an "inside job" and an "outside job," and he provides strategies for the reader to be successful in both realms of career management. Mr. Myers introduces concepts that most people don't consider when selling themselves on the job search - such as providing an employer with a "Testimonial Page," and submitting a "Perfect Match Letter." The author also explains exactly how to avoid revealing your salary requirements, and how to have more bargaining power when negotiating an offer. As I read this book, I felt like I had a seasoned career coach by my side, guiding me through each step of the job search process. In short, "Get The Job You Want, Even When No One's Hiring" is a unique, powerful resource - especially now when the job market is so challenging!

Wow! I can't remember ever reading a job search book this empowering before! With chapters like "Every Company is Hiring All the Time, Even in a Down Economy", and "Don't Be Afraid to Negotiate in a Down Market- Be Afraid Not To", I feel like I've been let in on an insider's secret. The whole attitude of this book is that more of the power lies with the job seeker than we've been led to believe in this so-called "buyer's market." The chapter on salary negotiation alone is worth the price of the book! As a career and life coach, you'd better believe that I'll be recommending this book as a step-by-step, confidence-boosting power tool for my clients to use!

That is definitely not the case with "Get the Job You Want, Even When No One's Hiring". Ford R. Myers gets straight to real time solutions, with a step by step approach that gets the job done. Finding yourself unemployed is not a pleasurable circumstance in the best economic times. In today's environment it can be downright terrifying.

From new graduates to those displaced later in their careers, this book is the best tool in your job search arsenal. So buy it, read it, do the exercises, regain your confidence and get out there, armed with a realistic strategic plan to do what needs to be done to "Get the Job You Want When No One's Hiring".
