This is the first review I've ever been compelled to write about an Amazon purchase. As someone who hasn't job hunted in awhile, I've found this book to be the quintessential guide on how to do it. The author did a nice of chunking out the information based on where I was in the search. For example, when I was working on my resume, it was easy to hone in on and focus on the chapters needed to get my resume done. I got a phone interview unexpectedly, so the interview sections were a great "go to" guide that helped me score an in-person interview. I also appreciate the down-to-earth conversational tone the author uses. It's like having a job search coach in book form, at the ready whenever I need it.

Still a good book but sections of it need updating. For example it's been awhile since the women's interview attire section was updated. While the attire section goes on and one about skirt hem lengths and business dress there is not one word about wearing a pants suit, which is what most women I know wear now especially to interviews. And this is the only book I see still suggesting putting "references available upon request" on a resume. However the prep sections for making contacts and prepping for interviews remain very good.

I have been using Martin Yale's Knock 'em Dead Ultimate Guides to assist with job hunting, interviewing, and writing/updating my resume since 2005. I have had such great success with the Knock 'em Dead series that I've recommended the books to colleagues, family members and friends. What I love the most about the Knock 'em Dead series is that the information is timely and can be used for a person who is looking to find an entry level position as well as a person looking for a senior level executive position. The interview prep questions were spot on. When I used the list of questions on my interview, I was complimented by the human resources representative. I actually got the job! Martin takes the hassle and fear out of job searching with all of the recommendations and tools that are provided to you in the books. I highly recommend using the Knock 'em Dead Ultimate Job Search guides along with the Knock 'em Dead Job interview guide. I will continue to update my copies of the Knock 'em Dead series so that I am always up to date and ready for job searching!

Someone recommended this book to me. Wow! This guy really "gets it". The information is good, clear, easy to understand, and practical.

It is common sense, PLUS a whole lot of stuff I would never have thought about. Resumes are important, yes, but picking up that phone, making contacts, having something to say when you call, all matter, and he gives good insight for the particulars of what to do/say.

He also gives advice for the interview questions that will invariably come up. I am preparing on my responses now, before my interviews come up

Solid job search guide. One tip - do not try to learn answers to interview questions by heart. It will always come different, and the chance that they will let you finish your statement, especially when there are two or thee interviewers, is rather unlikely. Keep mind the most important items that you want to get across, and squeeze them in wherever you can.

No question, hands down. The best source out there. We actually updated our edition from 2010, and it was worth it. Things have definitely changed in the job search arena. Knock 'em Dead is easy to navigate and full of practical information for all generations. My only problem is I bought 1 copy for the family when we could use 2.
