Need a job? Parents dream of an empty nest?
A 5-star rating! I enjoyed and was fascinated by the thought process and the procedures which are laid out to find jobs that are not advertised.
College grads, if you are looking for a way to break into your chosen field, this book takes you all the way, from which part of the work force you should be in, and whether your dream job really exists, through your final interviews.
For those of you later in life who have been downsized or laid off due to the economy, at any level up to executive, this book has advice for you. Each of the sections is laid out so the parts that apply to your situation are easily identifiable.
Mom or Dad, if you are worried about your adult offspring finding a job, this book is the perfect present. Perhaps you may want a better job yourself. The information is clearly presented to help any job seeker. It even has answers for those tricky questions some employers ask that are just verging on legal. Studner has thought of everything and almost makes me want to come out of retirement to use his book to get a job. Well, almost. This book is getting a solid 5 from me and I recommend it to everyone in the job market. I wish there were a 10 out of 5 as I cannot praise this book as much as it deserves.
