    1. Seriously, this book is one of the best selling career self help guides I find that hard to believe My issues with this book 1 Awkward, and at times incomprehensible, sentence syntax Dick Bolles comes across as a doofus with too much time on his hands who just decided to sit down and write a book, and not as a job market savvy consultant.2 Seriously stupid advice Try a search engine, like Google, or Yahoo, or your favorite one if you have one Yeah, thanks for the advice, Dick I never thought to [...]

    2. This book talks the reader through starting to look for work or a career change, especially when laid off with no immediate prospects To begin, we are shown why just sending out hundreds of CVs doesn t work Other methods of job hunting are described, and we are recommended to use than one.My lack of total enthusiasm comes from the facts that it is all about America so a lot of the information given doesn t apply to me it s dated from 2010, but a new edition is produced yearly it s providing unr [...]

    3. This is the ultimate job hunters and job changers book I m not in the market for a new job, but I chose to read this book again I read it many years ago to see what it had to say about finding your passion or mission in life I m pleased with the fact that this edition has a green section in back which deals with this very idea Although he writes about mission from a Christian perspective, he focuses on what s important in life The part of the book that I didn t really read but skimmed again was [...]

    4. Bolles always attempts to keep up with the times and does his best to reflect how job hunting as changed from year to year Take the time to do the exercises, I am always surprised by what I learn about myself when I take the time to sit down and think about things.The one piece of paper exercise is always fun.

    5. Certainly thorough and with reasonable suggestions about interview behavior, about not just floating your resume into the ether and hoping for the best, etc May be a victim of its own success as we are repeatedly reminded, over 10 million copies sold to an extent He claims for example to have invented the term informational interview , so whereas in my reading all the advice about and description of this process seemed familiar, I guess in an earlier edition of the book it was fresh.I d either f [...]

    6. During my annual review my supervisor suggested I read this book Normally I wouldn t have read anything like this Frankly I thought it was a book on retirement golden parachute s are things retiring businessmen get It was an ok book I ve heard that its a life changer for some Not for me I learned alot of things that I need to do when looking for a job that I didn t do when I got hired at the library Really I m shocked I got hired, I didn t do anything the guy said I must have blown the committee [...]

    7. I bought this used, tried reading it about halfway over the winter, 2015 16, when unemployed It just didn t seem to work for me I figured out what I d like to do, but there s no way it could happen Something else needs to be addressed in order for me to find what I m suited for Taking a job in 2008 which did not suit me, and keeping it for than six years has made the job hunt than interesting for me.I recommend this book, in its latest edition, to job hunters in general It s not the book that [...]

    8. This book wasn t as helpful as I thought it d be, unfortunately I discovered that my purpose is to one day entertain To help lighten the load of other people and provide an escape from reality is something I didn t think was a possible career path or even plausible until I skimmed this book So I m grateful for that I learned about the interview process something that has always stumped me So I m also glad I got some information about that Everything else was a little too methodological I was hop [...]

    9. This book offers tips and advice on how to choose a career and how to get a job The author, Richard Bolles, says that determining what you want out of life and realizing what you are most passionate about is extremely important He includes lots of exercises, such as lists, charts and diagrams, for the reader to do He also recommends going out and talking to people who are already doing careers that interest you.It should be noted that the author is a former minister and he includes a chapter on [...]

    10. This book is a great way to really dig deep into what you want to do with your life and what you can contribute Frees you from the want ad induced depression and changes your perspective from who would want me to what can I offer, and to whom can I offer it Sometime in the next while I ll really work through these questions.

    11. This book SEEMS like it would be really useful in 1 determining what you really want to do with your life, and 2 finding a job in that area However, since I haven t tried any of it out YET , I can t go all the way and give it five stars yet Still highly recommended for job seekers and job changers.
