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.
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.
I had previously tried for 6 months with no success and was wondering what the problem was with me since I had all the necessary qualifications & experience for the position I was seeking. After reading this book, I realized that my mindset was the issue. Following the steps laid out in the book, I was able to reprogram my mindset and attitude and this helped me get a job in exactly 19 days. So I highly recommend this book and want to say thanks to George for such a wonderful simplified step by step job book.
