I was going to review this book last year and didn’t. It is now technically “out of date” but I’m going to review it anyways!
Knock ‘Em Dead – The Ultimate Job Search Guide (2011) by Martin Yate
Although my procrastination means that there is already a newer version of this book out – I feel that it is still very relevant to today’s job hunters.
With five sections covering everything from productive resume writing to networking, the interview to closing the deal – this book covers it all! Written in an interesting and easy to read style, Mr. Yate takes a look at the most effective methods to use when looking for a job as well as what the interviewer sees and is looking for during the brief time you have to make an impression.
This book is great for today’s job market! Because more people are hanging onto their jobs longer and employers are more willing to cut costs by working with less – good jobs seem to be harder to find. It is more important then ever to be able to “sell” yourself and your skills and this book gives you the tools to do that!
This 25th Anniversary Edition of Knock ‘Em Dead even contains a brief summery of each of the thirty fastest-growing occupations in the current job market.
Whether you are fresh out of high school looking for your first job or have many years of experience under your belt and are trying to land a better one – this is a great book for you!
