Find A Job, NOW! by Annamarie Altomarec is a detailed, point by point, recipe for finding the job of your dreams in today’s crowded employment market. The author goes through every aspect of the job search, the application, the interview and the beginning of employment, to try to give prospective employees the edge when submitting their applications for the job they really want. She shows how to make you, your application and your personality appeal to the business you are applying for. The book is full of specific exercises designed to improve the applicant’s chances of being chosen amongst the often hundreds of other applicants.
What I particularly liked about Altomare’s approach in this book, was that it wasn’t aimed at the highly theoretical level of preparing for employment, but was wholly practical, with numerous, detailed exercises on how to prepare yourself to get the best chance of securing the position you want. Although many people may consider some of her points to be in the realm of stating the obvious, it is clear from her experience that many applicants continue to make the same mistakes time after time and suffer the pain of rejection, often to the point where they give up. I loved the way Altomare went right back to the beginning to address the very basics, such as: What job are you best suited for? What skills and talents can you offer a prospective employ and do these skills and talents fit with the job you are seeking. Find A Job, Now is definitely an instructional handbook that I would highly recommend to all prospective job-seekers. This book should be an invaluable resource to those seeking work, at ANY level. An excellent book.
