Looking for a job is both an art and a science. It is a science because there are the basic rules and procedures that every job seeker follows. But it is an art because everyone and their mother will provide advice on job searching when asked.
Barry Cohen’s 2003 book, Power Interviewing: Killer Cover Letters, is one of many books that provide job seeking advice. Written in a clear language, the book provides help from the beginning of the job search to the end, when the job seeker becomes an employee. He provides advice on anything and everything relating to job searching. From resumes to the various letters to employers (including the one on page 33 which according to the book generated multiple interviews and job offers. Whether or not it works for me, is yet to be seen), to interviewing and then what to do when you start at the job.
What I like about this book is that it is very thorough. It answers many questions that a job seeker will have in their quest for employment.
Just like any goal in life, there is no shortcut to finding a job. It takes hard work, a lot of time and a tremendous amount of effort. But it helps that there are books like these to provide support to the job seeker along the way to employment.
I recommend it.
