Top Customer Reviews
It should be noted that this book is truly a playbook. Which I take to mean that you don't necessarily have to read back to front. It also means it covers a lot of ground and doesn't go into any one subject area too deeply (as many of the other reviews have noted) However, what I found in the book is that you could take any piece of a job search process starting with career choice all the way to job offer and find something that would give you specific steps to pursue and good solid how to advice.
Ok so who's it not for:
-It's definitely not for people who are out of touch with the modern world, In reading some of the other reviewers there seemed to be a lot of "same advice dressed up for newer times". It's clear to me that those people missed the subtleties that were in that "dressing". Much the same way that if I watched something that i know nothing about, like showing horses, it would just look like somebody parading horses around, but I'm very sure there's quite a bit going on there that I'm clueless about. People who aren't in tune with today will miss those subtleties, so don't waste your time if that is you.
- It's also not for people looking to dive incredibly deep into one of these areas. It works well if you want to flip open a section and get immediate help in that area but not if you are the type of person who needs absolutely everthing spelled out for them in each area. You will have to figure some things out on your own (which for most people this is ok)
-It's not for you if you have serious issues that make you unemployable (or less employable), seek out a counselor for those instead.
It is for you if:
-You're looking for a good solid playbook that has specific examples, exercises, to dos, checklists and other ways to make a difficult process much easier.
- You are in your first 25 years of your career (could be helpful in the last 20 years too, but for sure on the front side it will save you a lot of time)
- You are looking for a one stop reference guide for each step as you go along.
- You are looking for solid advice, based on experience (i've personally used a lot of the stuff that this book talks about and gotten many jobs, promotions and job offers over other people that had more qualifications or experience)
It's particularly good for you if you're in a professional (or want to be in a professional) environment or if you don't want to learn all this stuff yourself the hard way!
Overall - Highly recommend, purely because $20 for this book is a deal when you count the number of things that you will put to use in a career search.
This very general book covers huge swaths of territory, but on the whole is adequate for people new to the job market. Lots of stories about job hunting here, lots of general advice, but nothing you won’t find in many other titles in the same genre.
Will the contents be helpful in a job search? Yes. Are there any big secrets here? No.
Just some pretty general advice on how to find a job these days.
