4.0 out of 5 stars Up To Date Job Search Help, May 12, 2011
This review is from: Knock 'em Dead 2011: The Ultimate Job Search Guide (Paperback)
Knock `em Dead: The Ultimate Job Search Guide 2011

The Knock `em Dead series by Martin Yate has always been very popular in my library. This book is the newly updated version that gives the latest information on searching for jobs. It is a treasure trove of great ideas for a person looking for a job. Part 1 covers resume creation and job searching, Part 2 covers interviewing, Part 3 covers interviewing also, including how to answer the tough questions, and Part 4 covers how to follow-up, what to do if you don't get the job, and how to negotiate a job offer, and finally Part 5 covers the 30 fastest growing occupations. The book includes lots of "Knock `em Dead tips" and is written in an easy to read format with lots of scenarios. I thought it was very interesting that they listed the number one job for growth as the personal and home care aide. It certainly does seem to be true with our aging population. The second growing occupation was veterinarian and vet assistant. And as always, computers are a "hot " occupation to get into. For each of the top 30 jobs, the book describes the position, what training is needed, the average pay, etc. If I was looking for a job I would definitely read through the interview section to prep, there are a lot of good pointers on how to deal with the tricky questions. There is also some great advice for writing and polishing resumes.
Disclosure: I received this book for free from booksneeze.com but the opinions I expressed about the book are my own.
