As I read this book, I noticed that it is aimed at college students who are entering the job market; however, I feel that it would be helpful to EVERYONE seeking a job. It speaks to both blue collar and white collar job markets, so no matter what your passion is, this book can help you.
I particularly loved the added recommendations and charts. It tells you how to make gaps in employment look attractive on your resume and lists the 60 job strategies that are relevant for today's economy.
With the US economy in tatters, this book is a MUST-READ for anyone looking for a job or career.
The economy in the United States is causing great concern for ordinary citizens both here and around the world. It's even more challenging for new college graduates who are trying to compete for jobs with over 15 million people unemployed. These days' graduates find themselves competing with people who are more qualified. It used to be only the privileged were able to attend college and get an education. Now everyone has this opportunity, this too is a contributing factor in the difficulty of finding employment. Both Dr. Daryl D. Green and Mr. Bailey understand the challenges that graduates are faced with in today's world and offer not only support but provide numerous strategies throughout this easy to read guide.
Here is the bottom line information this book imparts:
1. Make sure to have strong communications skills.
2. Be a critical thinker and problem solver.
3. Be able to adapt to any situation.
4. Make sure to do your research - job homework.
5. Social networking.
