STACKED. then the more I read it the more I understood it was a peffect title this was stacking all the knowledge in your favor and leveraging that knowledge for everything from job search, career selection, presenting yourself to companies not even currently advertising so you come to the top of their online searches. Showing potential employers how you are a great fit for their open positions and they call you, not the other way. An empowering text on getting the career you want at the pay you want written in a comforting style of a talk with a knowledgeable friend or mentor. Dr. Karen Gurney is truly and expert in this field and isn't holding back any of the wisdom she has learned over the years but this text is also current with changes to online services like LinkedIn, indeed and others that explains how to use those features I never knew existed and how they have changed in recent updates. Even better she gives access to her video online library of explanations and even includes invites to her online courses. This is the best financial buy I have made in years.
I do not agree with everything in the book. The author states that working with recruiters (rather than your own connections) is the first and the best option a candidate has. Since the author is a recruiter she might have her own bias in this area, but this is something each person can decide on his or her own. A company pays a recruiter about 20% of the candidate salary and they typically pay much less or nothing for an internal referral. In an addition an internal referral is a reference from someone they already know and trust. I consider my own connections as the first and the best option with recruiters being a second option. If someone does not have a lot of connections then the picture changes.
Other then this one area where I disagreed I thought the advice was excellent. I liked knowing what motivates and de-motivates recruiters from one of the flock. I liked the author's advice on removing the objective section and replacing it with a summary which is customized for each company highlighting the three skills you have from a specific job description posted by that company. The book includes templates for cover letters and thank you letters that I liked.
Ali Julia review
Because this book has little to help you double the number of interview you get.
The linkedin section is very weak.
If it was titled, "how to get past phone screens and double your job offers..." I would have given it a higher review. The title is misleading. That said, it's a great book for getting past the phone screen.
