(For example, there's a paragraph on bad search firms not getting their comeuppance that seemed kinda personal...).But let's be honest, most of these job search books are pretty much the same. They're all elaborate checklists with self-improvement exercises and activities to get young people on the right path. Well this one isn't like that, and it probably should be. As it is, it's a boring slog. For someone wanting something different, give it a go, it IS different, and like I said: Levy knows his business and there are some things in here worth thinking about. Thanks Goodreads giveaways and the publisher for a free advanced copy.

    This book is not meant to show you what type of job is best suited for you. Rather, it is an overall guide of how to best navigate the job search and job-changing journey. And as that it offers quality general advise useful for anyone in any job setting.
