After reading the reviewer who had returned the book because the Table of Contents only had one chapter on "web technologies," I hesitated to buy this book. But having finished the book, I can say that you should never judge a book by its table of contents!

For the past 25 years, I have heard that replying to ads is the most ineffective way to find a new job. The age of Monster and other job sites has not really changed that axiom. This book highlights the ways that Internet technologies factor into your job search. While there is still a lot of work involved in networking with people who may be able to assist you, it is certainly easier than it was 5 years ago. If you have not done an active job search in the past 5 years, this is a must read.

My recommendation: read it once without stopping to do all the things the author suggests, then go through the entire book again, doing the parts that interest you the most. There are literally hundreds of tips here, but the good news is that you don't have to do them all at once.

Our Church, the First United Methodist in Huntsville, AL, has a support group for the unemployed and they are using this book! Their use of this book resulted in the following email message to me: "What a great Book! Thanks to Kristen so much for writing it. It gets right to the point and that's what people in a job search need. I was unemployed for the first time in 24 years and I was overwhelmed by how things have changed in the Job Search Arena."

Our Church Library has added this Book to their inventory and are very pleased with it.

Kristen Jacoway included information that I haven't found in any other job search books. Includes helpful checklist, web-sites and other books to read. Good book for students just graduating or someone that hasn't had to do a job search in a while.
