Great resource book. If you have been turned down for a job at the ripe old age of 60, buy this book! Chapter for chapter, it packs a punch. From looking for a job to negotiating offers, it is a practical guide for anyone that has been stuck after losing a job and not finding a new one. A good chapter for people looking for a change is Work Options: jobs that are not typical.

It is well laid out and at the end of each chapter are tips, website addresses and a page for notes. I onsider this a work book, or should I say a PRE-work book, because if it’s used conscientiously, it will produce results. I found it straightforward and easy to use.

The appendix offers templates for resume writing in several different formats, highlighting important facts to consider when applying for different jobs.

A most interesting and helpful chapter is one containing sample interview questions to practice. This is helpful for people who have been out of the job market for a while and have forgotten what constitutes a good interview -- one that will get the job. It helps to be prepared.

I recommend this paperback highly. It is written by an experienced executive-search consultant who obviously knows her way around the job market. Utilize her expertise and go after the job you want!
