Review: New Job, New You: A Guide to Reinventing Yourself in a Bright New CareerUser Review - Terri - Goodreads
Definitely had some helpful parts, but with a more corporate focus than I'm looking for. Would prefer a chronological format myself, but useful for people in a specific job-hunting situation. Probably best for those who know the general career direction they're aiming for. Read full review
