Eileen does not disappoint with plenty of the same enthusiasm and down-to-earth wisdom in her first book that capitalizes on her long career in helping others find not just jobs, but the jobs of their dreams. I wish I had this guidebook when I was in my twenties and was first starting my career. Her résumé advice alone would have guided me to truly think through and realize what I really wanted to do and showcase my best qualities and desired work to prospective employers. I love Eileen's suggested "strong words" and phrases, and even though I already knew to use action verbs, some of the specific ones she advocates across six categories of job activities are brilliant--true magnets to would-be employers. The résumé worksheet rocks, helping you think through and craft the words that will get your foot in the front door, even down to the minutia of most accepted formats--form and content.
The Personal Branding Intro was my favorite section, with some of the best explanation I've read of the importance and trickiness of tooting your own horn and uniqueness in a way that makes you stand out. "A standout" is what I'd call this book, one that starts by showing more experienced job seeker the niches where their accumulated expertise is appreciated and tells them not to waste their time or energy elsewhere. For its reasonable cost, this book might be the best tool you'll ever buy--even when you're out of work. It won't be for long.
The author breaks the process down into practical, approachable components. She convinced me I could do it and motivated me to get going.
Her examples are extremely helpful. When I finished reading and started my resume, I was confident I could integrate her suggestions into an up-to-date and competitive resume and job search.
