Format: Paperback
This book is a big disappointment. Offering tips such as "google 'resume tips'", or including a sample ideal resume that includes marital status, age and a photograph...much of the information in this book is not only useless, but I would think harmful.

I first read this book many, many years ago and picked it up to help with coaching my clients currently in career transition. It is as valid and informative today as it was then and is a practice guide to helping folks find their next great opportunity. I highly recommend it.

Format: Paperback
I'm a university graduate and a product of my generation. I've been in and out of retail and jobs below my educational aspirations for years. This book gave me some hope in: 1) I am definitely not alone in my troubles, 2) the fear, anxiety, and depression are normal 3) I've been on the right track and 4) the way job hunting/hiring is done is ridiculously flawed, we need a new system.
Couple things I did not like about the book however:
*the over all tone was a bit patronizing
*unless you are looking for a job in the religious sector I believe religion should have nothing to do with job searching. There were a lot of references to faith, God and Christianity in this book making it inappropriate for some of other faiths to read.
* personally I found some of the suggestions ludicrous and presumptuous, and I have no desire to introspect on a flower diagram. As an introvert I already do it enough.

Overall not a bad idea to skim through if you are frustrated and at a loss. Made me feel better about myself because I am already doing a decent amount of his suggestions, and might apply tweaks here and there.

Either you're searching a new job or thinking about a career's change, this book is a great opportunity to think hard of what you do best, what you like and, eventually, what you really want.
A must read, even if you're not looking for a new job !

This is a classic book to help someone looking for a career change or a career start. It is US-based however, so, if you live in a different country, some of the information may not be applicable.

Very helpful book. I found the chapter on negotiating salary and interviewing the most helpful. The chapters regarding looking / applying for jobs dont really apply so much for the Canadian workplace.
