5.0 out of 5 stars If you are just out of school... Aug. 17 2011
By Terry Pile - Published on
This book is aimed at the younger job seeker or students still in school. It does a decent job of helping them identify strengths and how to market themselves. It has a good section on using social media. It doesn't go into any area too deeply, but is a broad brush stroke to the job search process. It comes with a CD which is nice if sitting down and reading a book is not your thing.
