Editorial Reviews

Review

"This amazingly, informative manual takes you through a concise step-by-step procedure to first realize and assess your own values and self-worth. The author uses his personal experiences in an anecdotal manner to convey situations that may occur, whether you're pursuing a career in your chosen field of study, looking to be promoted in your current job, or just looking for something brand new. The book offers helpful hints in resume' writing, interview do's & don'ts, and is "chock-full" of helpful websites to connect and guide you through your job-finding quest. I highly recommend this book to anyone, whether you're job searching or not; it full of common sense advice that can simply enrich your life." --Pat Potilechio 
   
"I must thank my friend for sending me in the direction of this book. It's written by someone who has gone through unemployment and shares how not to just get through it, but thrive. It includes all areas of a job search, as well as how to find the right balance between spiritual, family, health, knowledge, relationships, financial and career. It's personal, practical, poignant and very informative on how to get started in finding your dream career path, and not just another job." --Mary K. Hougaard
    
"Having been unemployed for 6 months, I decided to give this book a try. From the moment I started reading it, I knew this wasn't going to be your typical "Finding A Job 101" book which to be honest, I thought it would be. From the personal trials, tragedies and successes of the author, to the know-hows of communication and follow up after an interview, this book truly helps you understand your journey in life, know where you have come from, where you are now and where you want to be." --Melanie Ouellette

This book fell into our laps at a time when my husband had been blindsided by a chronic illness that ended his long-term career in commercial driving. It was scary enough contemplating such a change at 45 years old, then, before the ink had dried on his updated resume, he was diagnosed with cancer. The treatment has been long and hard, but it's nearing its end. While my husband can look forward to a full recovery, he now has to face his interrupted job search at a point when his stamina is iffy and his self-confidence bruised. Paul Rega's book offers a clear, user-friendly approach to looking for work in tough economic times and difficult personal circumstances. So much of who we are is wrapped up in what we do for a living. Perhaps the most difficult part of unemployment is how it can strip away our identity. This book doesn't just address the mechanics of a job search. Common sense tells a job hunter to target specific companies, clean up his resume, show up to the interview on time, etc. What is more difficult is generating the gumption to put yourself out there, to take a risk when all you want to do is hide in a corner. Through his professional advice and personal stories, Paul Rega looks at the reader as a whole person with needs, desires and fears that can't help but impact his or her job search. This book offers a way to orient oneself, a way to begin. And beginning is two-thirds of the battle.

Note on the reviewer: I obtained Paul Rega's book free as a promotional download on a social networking site. The offer showed up a week or so after my husband had to leave his job, but the cancer diagnosis that followed caused many months to pass before we actually read the book. While I am a writer and an editor, I do not "trade" reviews, and I do not review books that I have not read. My opinions--good or bad--are my own.

This is a great little book that over-delivers on the title promise. Inside, in addition to a wealth of information about how to determine your true career path (using intuition and the exercises provided), are a great many tools and techniques for every aspect of the job hunt. Being self-employed, I didn't need that specific info--what I got great benefit from, though, was the motivating content regarding following your true career life path and the bit(s) about being in/going into business for yourself. Really a good little book. Happy reading~*

Wow! I find all the techniques explained in this book to be necessary for anyone seeking a job in a jobless world. I've never written a follow-up letter to an interviewer before, but I think this is such an impressive way for job seekers to present themselves and are, therefore, more likely to lend a position. Thank you Paul for taking the time to inform us.

This is a unique career and job search guide written by someone who has been there, done it and is eminently qualified to share it. Having started two businesses whilst still a student (the proceeds of which paid for his last year at college!) Paul Rega went on to own his own executive search business by the age of 28 and now has nearly three decades of experience behind him in the recruitment industry. His professional knowledge of what it is that employers are looking for is backed up in this book by his personal experience as both an employer and an employee. Anyone can find out how to write a resume by searching on the internet. What this book gives you is hands-on advice on each step of your job search - how to discover the best career path for you based on your personal qualities and aspirations; how to approach employers; how to conduct negotiations and how to prepare for an interview. Reading this book is like having one-to-one career counselling (but a lot less expensive!). There are morale boosting tips and references to the author's own career path and the challenges, pitfalls and personal tragedies that he had to overcome along the way. I felt utterly inspired and ready to start my own business by the time I reached the end of the book. Highly recommended.

I was never the worst interviewer in the world and, for my age, I had a pretty impressive resume. That being said, I would send out hundreds or resumes and still only get a response maybe 30% of the time. In this economy, no matter how impressive I was, I knew that I was going up against 40 or 50 other highly qualified applicants and I would never get the job that I was applying for unless I did something different. I was dissatisfied and stuck in a job that, while not bad, was not where I wanted to be professionally.

By chance, "How To Find A Job: When There Are No Jobs" was suggested to me and I decided to purchase it for my Kindle. I did not have much hope for the product. I had ready books like this before and they all boiled down to the same bromides. I had a great deal of respect for the person who suggested the book, though, so I decided to give it a shot.

Wow. Was ever this worth it. The book was more than just a run down of job search bromides. It introduces you to all sorts ingenious tips and tricks to get and interview, excel in it, and finally land the job. In order to ground these tips, the book then serves as a loose autobiography detailing the author's own life story. I used to think that I was pretty good at my job search, but I realized that I was nowhere near passible. I may have been qualified, but I did not present myself in the way that I needed to in order to get the required attention.

I do not want to spoil the secrets and tips in the book, so I will not go into specifics, but I can say that once I found a job that I was perfectly qualified for at a company that I was excited to be a part of, I was able to secure an interview within 5 hours of my resume submission.
