I am looking for a job for the first time in 20+ years and had no idea where to start. This book was full of practical advice that I used right away. It was easy to read and I liked the way the author explained the concepts. I now have a clear goal and a really strong resume. I am working on my LinkedIn profile following the guidelines in the book, which are easy to follow. I like the step-by-step process. It makes looking for a job less overwhelming. I highly recommend this book and the resources the author has on her website too.
I learned a lot from this book! Like many people, I’m thinking of switching jobs but it has been a while since I’ve been in the job market. This book helped me to focus on why I want to change and what I want to do and then gave me a roadmap to do it. It covered a lot of things that were new to me, such as keywords in my resume to get past the automated hiring processes and what employers expect in interviews these days. One of the most helpful chapters is about using LinkedIn, which I’ve never been very good with. The detailed information and pro tips gave me a lot of ideas for branding myself and communicating my value online. This book is giving me confidence to take action. I highly recommend it!
When I was preparing for an interview and wanted to plan ahead of time, I was able to go back to the book and use it as a guide for effective openers, selling points and questions. This book is a valuable resource to shape how you approach a job search, and it helped me approach interviews with the confidence that I was applying for the right jobs and prepared to articulate what I could deliver. It was a valuable resource for me and I expect it will be again.
