Format: Paperback
This book is a "must-read-bible" for college and vocational students, career changers, middle-agers migrating back to the workplace, victims of a reengineered workplace, and employees seeking to expand their career horizons.
The seven key elements of career success are covered in twenty well-crafted chapters including:(1)matching job strengths to the best career/job targets, (2)organizing a strong job search, (3)researching employers, (4)preparing winning cover letters and resumes-both traditional and electronic, (5)using the Internet to best advantage, (6)successfully interviewing and negotiating a top salary, and (7)succeeding on the job.
The super companion Web site links readers to the best of the Net in career resources. The site provides direct access to current trends and information in all aspects of career development, self-assessment, and job search, including salary surveys and relocation resources.
Levitt "cuts to the chase" with her pragmatic and motivational text. She focuses on the practical and personal "how-tos" of successful career building, from starting out to moving up. Clear techniques guide the reader swiftly and skillfully through the "minefield" of career development and job search. She wastes no words, using concise, practical lists and summaries to explain various effective strategies.
Levitt, an educator and successful, much sought-after, corporate and governmental consultant, shares her unique career success, pavement-pounding techniques. Career action activities, or "successercises" are introduced in each chapter, to guide the reader toward collecting and applying career research, directly from the Internet and from the business world.
Don't wait a minute more. Buy it! Read it! Apply it!

Format: Paperback
This book is a tool for job and career success. It is a classroom textbook or can be used alone as other books published in a self-help format. For the person that is willing to put the time into doing the exercises the rewards are great. This is especially true for those still in school/college without a lot of work experience.
The review that was placed with this book title is judging the book not as a text book that is part of a classroom setting. I am sure that any text book would get a poor review when quick/easy answers are wanted. But when true knowledge and a sure path is wanted, this textbook has more depth than a 50 page quick fix.
