I would HIGHLY recommend this book for all job hunters in this job market today. It is really in depth and helps those that need encouragement, resumes, cover letters, and job search locations. However, it also goes in depth into those that are starting over later in life and how that affects them differently. It has exercises in the back to help you get your thoughts together. It also has something for those people that might have to start in other field, either by choice or because their job title has been eliminated. There are a lot of job hunting books out there, I have read a few, but this one really is tailored to this job market. Pick it up if you are searching for a job and need help!!!

An excellent guide for anyone looking at a job change or just wanting to get a refresher course on applications and interview processes. Even with my very specific career, it is a useful resource.

Kind of a lot of reading to get to the point, but its a great book for someone looking to change their career IF you do all the steps! ;)

This book is mostly just common sense, plus some stuff that I blatantly disagree with (for example, the author is severely techo-phobic, and discourages the use of the internet and email in your job search).

Loads of good advice and resources for those looking for a job, or trying to figure out whether to take the leap into a completely different career. Can't recommend it enough!

This book will support you in generating a lot of valuable information about yourself. It doesn't give you all the answers, you do have to put forth the effort. You can expect to invest about 20+ hours in working through the self exploration exercises; however, the results can be life-changing.

If you are in the process of reflecting on your current career choices and would like to generate more self-awareness about your values and create a vision of what you want from your careerthis book is for you.
