"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

Nevertheless, author George Egbuonu presents many very valuable tips and techniques for getting a job, including using a video to get interviews, that will dramatically increase your chances of getting a job.
"How To Get A Job In 30 Days Or Less" is well-formatted for a Kindle ebook. The proper use of diagrams enhances the power and message of this book.
The author covers many aspects of job hunting (many that I wouldn't think of) including:
* How to Get the Courage to Get the Job You Desire.
* How to Create an Effective Resume
* Creative Ways to Your Resume Selected and to Get Interviewed
* How to Effectively Tell Your Prospective Employer What You Have to Offer
* How to Effectively Interview Over the Phone or In Person
* How Not to Be Nervous or Afraid During an Interview
* The Three Most Effective Ways to Apply For The Job
* How to Use Social Media to Apply For and Get the Job You Want
* How to Use the Law of Averages in Getting a Job
* How to Be In the Right State of Mind to Apply For and Get the Job You Desire
Incidentally, the author insists that you should not only get a job, but that you should get the right job for you.
In short, this book will dramatically increase your chances of getting a job, even in a recesssion. But this comes with a caveat. It is one thing to know what has to be done to get that great job. It is another thing to do it. As the Buddhists say, "To know and not to do is not yet to know." In other words, there is quite a bit of work involved in ensuring that you quickly get back to work in the job you want.

One of the things that struck me was how different things are now than the last time I job hunted or even the last time I hired others. Social media, networks and such are changing everything - job just for business, but for job hunting as well, evidently. Some of the specific steps may or may not apply to every profession, but, then again, I don't think it's meant to. Use this as a template, a starting point, and if you know for a fact that your industry is different, the adjust accordingly.
So, with me being so full of praise for the book, why four stars rather than five? In some part because I have no tested it myself nor had it tested by others. I got it so I can coach and counsel others who have questions about job hunting (my son is doing an interview soon, and rather than give him the advice that worked "back in the day" I thought it was a good prompt to update what I know about job hunting). Some things are the same. Some things have changed.
I believe that following the process in the book is very likely to produce results. Any hint of skepticism I might have is only because of a lack of personal experience seeing the system work, and, of course, the jobs must be there in order for you to pursue them. For all job hunters, it will take a bit of luck, but that's why you keep doing three a day. The harder you work, the luckier you'll get.
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.
