4.0 out of 5 stars A Clever and Substantial Approach to the Job Dating Game!, November 15, 2007
This review is from: Courting Your Career: Match Yourself with the Perfect Job (Paperback)
Shawn Graham knows his territory: his 'regular job' is with a Career Management Center in North Carolina. Having had extensive experience counseling college students on the successful ways to career life after college has resulted in this very entertaining and useful guide COURTING YOUR CAREER: Match Yourself with the Perfect Job.

Graham uses the helpful analogy of thinking about career options, making decisions by elimination procedures as to what job market is most compatible with the candidate, and then goes about the steps in approaching the desired career by using the same kind of information and etiquette and presentation that maximizes effects in successful dating and partnering! It may sound simplistic when condensed in a review, but Graham is a shrewd and perceptive guide, giving solid examples of how to manage every step of the job search (and research!), the interview, and the final negotiations that result in making the right choices for the perfect job. And if this 'personal dating' analogy seems a bit like 'Job Hunting for Dummies', then this smart book is probably meant for you. Graham carefully draws attention to the many steps and pitfalls, sound advice and encouragement, and even check lists for accomplishing goals. It is a tightly written, very useful manual that may be aimed at the young graduate, but it is also a fine tool for people of any age who have decided to re-enter the job force or make a career change. Don't be put off by the Magritte-like cover: this is a learned, accessible manual! Grady Harp, November 07
