A friend gave me this book to read because I've been in a job for eight years that I've been happy with for six of the years and not so much that last two. I was browsing the newspaper...I know kinda old fashioned...for a spark of inspiration to move on when I spoke with her about my discontentment and she recommended this book.

Dr. Paul Powers gave me the confidence that I needed to get out there dispite what I viewed as many flaws in my past career experience. The biggest one was losing 13 yea

Finally finished it. Always a good feeling to get through something you never thought you would.

Fast-paced, with no fluff, this book shows you how to have a great answer for the most difficult interview questions, social networking mistakes that will hurt your job hunt and career, and more. Jeff Taylor, the founder of Monster.com, praised that Winning Job Interviews “prepares success-minded people for that crucial encounter with great advice, helpful tips and…a winning attitude.”

This book is a good place to start. I liked the section on references. The author makes some good recommendations. Otherwise, much of the rest of the book is pretty commonsensical.
Stephen Chung
A decent motivational book.
