A modern publication talking about some very important parts of your job search. I love that it mentions Toronto, Ontario Canada. Cute pictures and easy to read text. Effective for first time job hunter or one with experience. Loved that it outlined things NOT TO ASK during potential job conversations. Worth your time.

I thought this was going to to contain more information. I already knew most of what was written in here though it was nice to brush up on a few things. This would be a great graduation gift. I don't regret buying this book but if I had known what it contained I wouldn't have bought it in the first place.

Well-laid-out, concise approach to job hunting.

Not much in here I didn't already know but thought it'd be good to bone up on modern library resources since I grew up in the card-catalog age! Very good tips on resume writing and great links for job searching.
Lesley
This is a great book for someone coming out of college or a person that has never held a job outside the home.
Anne
This was FAR too basic for my needs. However, it would be good for someone just starting their search.
