    This is a solid book of advice for those looking for their first job or that find themselves stuck in the rat race of job interviews without much success. It skews a bit toward more creative industries, but most of the tips are good and can easily be tailored into more “serious” careers. It also contains some pretty solid tips on how to handle yourself once you’re hired and during the first year of your career. It might be that I’m older than the intended target, but I found it a little funny (d This is a solid book of advice for those looking for their first job or that find themselves stuck in the rat race of job interviews without much success. It skews a bit toward more creative industries, but most of the tips are good and can easily be tailored into more “serious” careers. It also contains some pretty solid tips on how to handle yourself once you’re hired and during the first year of your career. It might be that I’m older than the intended target, but I found it a little funny (depressing) that it’s actually necessary for the author to remind people to be professional while on the job. You shouldn’t need to be reminded to keep things professional during work hours and concentrate fully on your job. I would recommend it as an excellent gift for a high school graduate or someone just starting out in college. It has great tips for what to do once you’re out of college and trying to join the workforce, but the best tips it contains are all things you have to take care of long before you graduate. (Got a copy from Good Read’s First Reads.)

    I received this book free through Goodreads Giveaways. Excellent information for high school graduates that are entering college. This covers everything you need to know to get the job you want after college. There is advice on putting together your resume, cover letters, interviews, negotiating your salary, handling a job offer and more. Once you get your dream job, there is information on being a star employee and moving up in the company.

    I enjoyed the simple advice offered in this book! Little things to tweak and enhance interactions with potential employers. Being a junior in college, the advice was timely and relevant for me, but I would recommend this book to anyone that breathes and wants to get paid (financially, of course, and in learning).

    Helpful - I bookmarked several pages that offered ideas of questions to ask during interviews and performance reviews. It’s great to read from the perspective of a senior level executive. I did find it a little stuffy because I believe there are plenty of flexible companies out there. All in all, a good book to reference.

    Some information was a no-brainer but some of it was insightful.

    It remains to be seen if I actually end up landing my dream job or not, but the advice in this book is practical and helped me while I was obsessing over resumes and cover letters. Probably best for people just finishing up college, but the basic advice is universal.

    Good book on an employer's mindset when they are trying to hire someone. Uniquely focused on college graduates, but doesn't provide a lot of insight for others outside that category.
