Mr Asher has many years experience counseling college students on career choice and career launch. "Most college students want a job when what they should really want is career development. What is career development? Career development is conducting a process of self-discovery and then matching what is discovered with the career marketplace." p 3 The book describes the process of selecting careers to research, how to research them, and then how to look for opportunities in those areaa.
What I particularly liked is that Mr Asher gives very detailed instructions on what to do, how to do it, and why to do it. For example, here is how to develop a list of companies to call, here is how to make contact and get interviews, and here is the number of interviews you need per week to get "traction" and land a job within 6 months.
While this book is specifically aimed at college grads it would be very useful for anyone looking for a new job.
I also highly recommend "The Play of Your Life: Your Program for Finding the Career of Your Dreams - And a Step-by-step Guide to Making It a Reality" by Colleen Sabatino. It is geared toward workers with experience who want to change jobs but the assessments are very useful for first-time job hunters. It has more specific advice on resumes and cover letters.
Another book I highly recommend is "They Don't Teach Corporate in College: A Twenty-Something's Guide to the Business World" by Alexandra Levit. The business world functions very differently from college and that can be a tough transition for students. Written by a 28-year-old who figured it out successfully, it's a great introduction for students entering the work world.
