Excellent, timely advice! Dr. Holland knows his stuff. Trying to find a job can be very daunting and overwhelming, but this book breaks it into a step-by-step, logical approach. This book has helped me develop my freelance business. I recommend it for anyone, of any age, who wants to find work or is considering entrepreneurship.
