I'm a career counselor and an outplacement consultant. At the executive level, Lucht's Rites of Passage (use the 2001 edition which covers the Internet) and its companion, The Executive Job-Changing Workbook, are the only two tools I insist my clients use. The Workbook helps them crystalize what to say in their resume and in interviews. It also shows them how to soft-pedal their deficiencies. I find that using both books together helps my counseling tremendously. Incidentally, the Workbook splits into two books, both with a plain white cover, so an employer won't accidentally see the candidate is using a commercial resource, when he/she opens his/her attache to pull out a resume. Clever! People carry the second half to interviews and fill in its "debriefer" forms with everything they find out from each person in round-one of interviews. They do this as soon as they get out of the employer's parking lot . This information, captured while it's fresh in mind, is reviewed to prepare for second-round interviews. Employers always tell you everything they hope for in a perfect candidate. If you parrot that back in your second-round interview, you'll defeat everyone who doesn't. This Workbook is an amazing help to the executive-level job-seeker. It's a "secret weapon" I don't think most people know about. I always insist they use it if they're going to work with me.

Format: Paperback
This is a workbook based on John Lucht's book "Rites of Passage at $100,000+". It offers a way to organize your job search, including skills inventory, resume building, cover letter writing, contact management, etc. It can be used without the $100,000+ book, but ideally is used as a companion to the book.
Lucht's system outlined in the book is very narrow, advocating a mail campaign as the most important part of the job search. This workbook expands on that a fair bit, offering more resume and cover letter examples and a series of worksheets. The content is well thought out, especially the worksheets. If your plan is to organize your own work search, you can do everything with this one book - resume, cover letter, networking, interview skills, and negotiation. There are thousands of executive job searching books out there, but if you wanted to buy just one, this would be the one.

Format: Paperback
This is one of the worst-written books I have ever read. There are an innumerable number of sentences that begin with 'But' and 'And' which makes me wonder if his editors are family friends afraid to correct Mr. Lucht. It appears that the text relied heavily on notes taken down on pieces of scrap paper over the years as sentence fragments and grammatical errors are the norm. Sarchastic examples are commonplace. Mr. Lucht also manages to blow his own horn approximately ten times throughout the book when referring to his '26' years in the 'retainer recruiting' business. Once you adjust your reading style to his disaterous form, the content of the book begins to give some worthwhile advice.

Format: Paperback
This book is simply a compilation of repackaged material that anyone with common sense could write down on a piece of paper. The anecdotes are hokey and the BOLD ALL CAPS punch lines are simply there to take up space. Save yourself some money by sitting down and taking the time to think of how to package yourself in your job search. Also, Mr. Lucht makes sure that his self promotion is woven throughout the book. The kicker is that the book is simplisticly and exasperatingly written in a kind of folksy style. My advice: find someone that you or one of your friends knows who has changed careers, take them out to lunch and pick their brain.

Format: Paperback
The Executive Job-Changing Workbook by John Lucht is a Companion to Rites of Passage. It has numerous forms that are very useful in organizing a job search. It is clear, easily usable, and helps one control the organization of a varied job search. It is very cleaverly designed to take apart so that you can take one section in a briefcase on interviews. This helps recording and tracking search letters, phone calls, interviews, and thank you letters. A great help in a time consuming process.
