This book is a very detailed guide about how to get your dream job. It's very detailed and covers everything you need to know, from preparing your CV, your cover letter, to sending your applications online, offline, career fairs, and covers how to handle interviews in person and on the phone.
The tips for what to do and what not to do where enlightening as well, putting you in the shoes of the interviewer. The book leaves no stone unturned, and it has all you will need, while keeping you motivated all throughout the book so you don't give up halfway.
The list of resources for where to get jobs was very helpful.
Sometimes, the author will go very deep into a seemingly simple subject, but it's important, because it gives you the extra advantage you will need to stand out from the rest. The more you apply the principles here, the greater your advantage, the higher your chance to land the job that you want. The principles here must not only be read, they must be acted upon, and as you continuously apply for more jobs, it will give you advantage if you turn the principles into habits.
All in all, the book was very enlightening and I would highly recommend this to those who are having trouble landing their dream jobs.
This was a very quick read chalk full of information. You can find anything you need from the very beginning of the process to the end where you ultimately achieve the job you want. The chapters are easy to understand and give great pointers for any scenario you can imagine. Even those tough ones such as negotiating a salary.
I thoroughly enjoyed the book and believe everyone can get something out of it. An important part that stuck out to me was telling them what you can offer them and also what they can offer you. Being open and honest about this can make you an asset in the eye of the company you're interviewing for. The chapter on fear is also supremely important. The verbiage can be useful in any life situation, but they also include specifics about fear in finding work. Very eye opening.
If you have teens or young adults, please give them this book. If you're an adult, frustrated with the job market, read this book. You won't be dissatisfied. The suggestions will give you hope and motivation while moving forward in your job quest.
Some of the best benefits this book offers are the author's thoughts on how to give an employer the "big ideas" they want to hear in an interview. I never even thought about these kinds of strategies before. He also talks about a counterintuitive strategy that I will definitely be putting into action when I get my next interview.
The sections on social media are interesting too, but ultimately the book focuses on traditional methods of job hunting. Using blogs and other forms social media, in my opinion, can do as much harm as good if you haven't gotten the tricks of those trades mastered. Still, the author offers interesting insights.
I wish the author would say more about cover letters and resumes. He says that these things are covered very well elsewhere, and yet I cannot help but think that he has tremendous value to offer in this area. I guess it's true that there is no way to reinvent the wheel on this one, but if there are secrets to be had, surely this is an author if ever there was one to give his opinion on them.
Ultimately, the best part of this book is the author's insistence that we actually identify the kind of job that we want. I forget the exact term that he uses, but it has something to do with how we sometimes work very hard to get ourselves into positions we aren't really interested in having. The tips in this book for avoiding that (something I do all the time to myself) are invaluable.
I'd close this review by wishing best of luck to everyone on their job search, but I can tell you that if you read this book, luck is the last thing you'll need to rely on.
