I am reading this book because, on a daily basis, I encounter persons who are among the unemployed or underemployed. There are many “how to do a better job search” books on the market. This one offers a look into social and personal aspects of unemployment and a realistic picture behind the labor reports and surveys appearing regularly on the news. Regardless of what the figures report, the number of persons looking for work continues to outweigh the number of reasonable positions for them to be hired into. While Schenk’s advice focusses on job seekers in mid-career, what he has to say is applicable to any age, career level, or social status. Topics include restructuring your resume, strategies for the internet and social networking, rebuilding your value, networking, and reinvention. Great topics and encouragement from someone who’s been there.
