I often found I was more than qualified to fill several job openings at a company at any given time, even when the roles did't seem related in the least bit. This was a function of my broad and varied experience and believe it or not this worked against me - this book doesn't solve that problem, but will at least give you a boost of confidence and some stories to tell when making your case and explaining your apparent "job-hopping"...

As someone with an eccentric, arts-heavy resume, this book is a godsend. I had come to think my successful past as a performer and then writer and professor was a liability. But Anders demonstrates practical techniques to find the employers who value my skill set, and also how to restructure my resume, cover letter and interview to set yourself apart from the cookie-cutter applicants.

After reading what felt like a short memo, I got the feeling I was duped.
Some ideas do not work, but some would. All in all a big disappointment given the brevity of the book. Would not buy any book from this author again, since I got the feeling that I could not trust anything he wrote since he did not level with me about the size of his book beforehand and seemed to leave me a as a reader hanging. I know what he was thinking probably: you got your money's worth. Nuff said.
