Although geared towards adults, this is the perfect reference book for older teens getting ready to embark on finding that first quality job. We're not talking about working at the check-out lane of the local grocery store or dumping frozen food into fryers in fast-food kitchens, but rather a 9-to-5, dress up in "work" clothes, go to the "office" each day type of job.
When it comes to getting a good job -- and the pay that goes with said job -- it all comes down to two things: your resume and your interview. It might sound simple, but LAND YOUR DREAM JOB shows that it really isn't.
In fact, when it comes to writing the perfect resume, there are tons of pitfalls to avoid, phrases to refrain from using at all costs, and things you must do no matter what. This book will teach you all of the tips, tricks, and word phrasing needed to make yourself sound like the perfect person for whatever job you choose to go after.
The same can be said for an interview. From the clothes you wear to the answers you give to each and every question asked of you, an interview with a prospective employer is your time to shine. The authors can tell you what words not to utter, what to say, and, most importantly, exactly how to say it.
With exercises to try before you even start job-hunting and pointers for almost any circumstance, this is the guide you need before jumping into the workforce with both feet.
