“Like conversing personally with a skillful and experienced outplacement consultant. The tone is warm, encouraging, and honest. This is not just another ‘how to write a resume’ book; it’s about the rest of the job search process—the most important part. It presents job search problems and solutions and clearly addresses worries, concerns, and myths that I hear from every job seeker.”

If you have been laid off—or might be in the future—read it now.”
