A Career Manual--with Heart and Enthusiasm!,
This review is from: Career Comeback: Repackage Yourself to Get the Job You Want (Hardcover)
As a job search consultant, I was luckily provided an advance copy of this upbeat new career resource.
Job hunting can be tedious and depressing--but it doesn't have to be. Lisa Johnson Mandell's uplifting Career Comeback provides classic job search strategies, like creating a personal skills inventory and developing an ever-expanding network, and updates them for the Twitter Age. Acknowledging that the current job market is both much more image-conscious and information-dependent, Career Comeback provides fresh approaches to the timeless task of finding rewarding--and respectably compensating--work. In addition, Lisa Johnson Mandell's story about repackaging herself in the most competitive of environments--Hollywood--is an inspiring testament to her determination. And her anecdotes from the trenches of today's brutal job market provide levity typically unknown to this genre.
This isn't your usual button-down job search manual--but this isn't your usual job market either.
