I am here to tell you that you think you are doing things that make you sound, and look good to employers, and recruiters, and you might very well be, but after you read this book you are going to realize you are doing something wrong. At the very least you are going to read a paragraph in this book that makes you stop and say “I could be doing this better.”
With a perspective that few will ever be honest enough to share, Alysse blows the same door off that certain websites, and services claim to make as clear as glass. Save yourself a lot of time, money, and research hunting around for tips and stories on the internet, and just read these 116 pages. You wont be sorry.
The bottom line is we all have room to improve, and Alysse covers the bases from start to finish in such a complete, and thorough manner that regardless of your experience, or success in the past it is nearly impossible not to walk away with a few gems that will set you apart from the crowd.
This book was absolutely refreshing. Many people like me who have already tried and came up less than successful at finding employment after graduating have heard a thousand different opinions from family, friends, and co workers on how to get a job. The best part of this book was that it gives you a different perspective on the whole process. She clearly defines what is expected of potential recruits by people like her, recruiters. There is a section of the book that covers your resume. And that section by far has the best tips of do's and dont's that I have ever come across. The author does a superb job of highlighting the important topics but also putting her own personal twist from her experiences into the book. If you are ever going to be looking for a new job, and you probably will be, you need to read this book!
Alysse Metlzer, after years working for large companies such as EA and Zynga, took her knowledge of what professional Job Recruiters look for in candidates, broke unspoken rules, and divulged sensitive information to help those individuals who are unemployed, fresh out of college, or preparing to graduate, find their dream job.
However, she doesn’t just present here knowledge as if this were just another textbook to read during high school or college. She keeps everything clear to understand, and takes the time to emphasis critical points to increasing your chances of obtaining that twinkle of a job in your eyes! The book also includes not just her opinion, but that of 101 (that’s right, over ONE HUNDERED different opinions!) on the different topics she discusses within the book: the importance on LinkedIn, resume building, conducting phone interviews, in person interviews (just an aside from information from the book: park in the parking lot like the owner of the company has a window facing that same parking lot), and - a dreaded topic for most – networking. Almost every time she does mention what her colleges said on the topic, she provides percentages of who said what, and even picture-book-esque graphs!
For anyone that is serious about advancing in their careers, Alysse takes the large and complex field of recruiting, and gives the readers a Need-to-Know TL;DR version of every class, seminar, or workshop you will take on how to get the jobs of your dream!
The 101 recruiters surveyed was a great common theme throughout the book, and for the second book I'd like more surveys and maybe more visuals in the book. Other than that, keep the book small and handy!
