Knock ‘em Dead – The Ultimate Job Search Guide 2011 by Martin Yate, CPC.
No doubt about it, Knock ‘em Dead lives up to its title. The book provides all the ammunition you need to wow potential bosses or future companies that might hire you.
The job marketplace is scary and competitive—especially during this economic rut. Over-qualified people queue up for menial jobs below their educational level—and they’re still not hired. So, how does one stand out as being the very best potential employee? Knock ‘em Dead tells us how.
The book covers every angle of job hunt prep one can imagine – everything from resumé writing, dress-code, interview techniques, personal branding, first impressions, how to find jobs, how to land interviews, how to query, how to impress, legal issues . . . Phew! Exhaustingly exhaustive!
There are some areas I might modify (in practice at least)– areas which hint at avoiding full disclosure to land the gig. But aside from that discrepancy, the book is a great tool for job-hunters, career changers or for people wanting to improve their overall people skills and professionalism.
