Normally I stay away from anything that smells of "self help" but the subject matter appealed to me. I thought it would not hurt to hear what Mandell had to say about repackaging yourself to get the job you have always wanted (back cover blurb). I was not disappointed, no rather I was energized by Mandell's advice.
Mandell writes in a very engaging manner. She is straightforward and likable. You will not find a collection of spin, double speak or sound bites. This book is full of wisdom for those of us over 40 and feel too old to change professions. Mandell reminds us that we have more to offer than those who are just starting out in the job market. We more stable, less likely to become pregnant, marry, divorce, move or decide this job is not for us. Mandell teachers her readers how to use their life experience as an asset in job interviews and most importantly teaches us that we have a lot to offer. This last point really resonated with me. I had forgotten my own worth! After reading this book (twice) I feel better about my plans and look forward to changing careers. I highly recommend this book to anyone of any age who is hesitant to change careers. Mandell may inspire you to go for that golden ring.
Career Comeback walks the reader through the necessary steps to become an "ageless" job seeker. Johnson Mandell is a talented writer who makes a serious subject fun such as including a "How Hip Are You" quiz (hint if you don't know what Huffpo and DS are you probably need a pop culture refresher course) and "12 Items You Need to Throw Away Now" (who knew that nude panty hose was passé?) . And for the short of cash job seekers, she details a "One-Day Career Comeback for $50 or Less."
Career Comeback is an informative and surprisingly fun read!
