My reaction upon seeing this title available for review was two-fold. Initially, I laughed at the hilarious title. Secondly, I was impatient to request a title for myself! With Dwight soon to be in search of employment, I was praying for anything that might be helpful to him. I wondered if Knock ‘em Dead: The Ultimate Job Search Guide would prove to be worthwhile. This book is updated for this current year (2011) and is also the 25th Anniversary Edition. To be still sought after (the author is a New York Times bestselling author and this title is highly recommended by many.
So I requested it. And waited for it to arrive.
Flipping through it I found it to be interesting and informative. It gives a fair amount of time to the interview. Wondering what to wear? You’ll find out in this book. Wondering what types of questions might be asked? I was amazed at some of the questions… they were enough to melt my heart with fear (and thankfulness that it was Dwight who would be answering them and not I, isn’t that terrible?) Well, suggested answers are given in this book!
Dwight was disappointed that more thought was not given to the resume and cover letter suggestions, but that was easily understood once we realized that the author had written another book with those in mind. In checking out the website address provided, he discovered much additional information there.
All in all, we found this book to be a helpful tool for those desiring to make a good impression as they seek new employment.
