By far the best

This is probably the best book I've ever read on changing jobs.

I was unemployed for a grand total of two weeks. I followed the book's advice to the letter: individualized resume for the job, cover letter per the webpage the book recommends, researched the cover letter on the company's website to tailor it to the job, was enthusiastic during the interview-which only took a week to get- because I'm older, and wrote two thank you notes after the interview.

I also got the job. If you haven't read it, buy this book.

Employment Help

Richard Nelson Bolles' book provides a comprehensive and creative approach to reduce some of the anxiety/stress inherent in the job search. Frequent updates keep it relevant.
