"I would recommend this book to any college student, recent college graduates, and anyone who would want to improve their professionalism. This book gave me an inside look into the mind of a recruiter, giving great tips as to how to gain employment at my dream career. The chapters are easy to follow and forced me to consider how I could improve my chances of landing my dream job after graduation."
"As a business student in my last semester of undergraduate studies, I have heard it all- what a resume should look like, how to impress your interviewer, etc. I thought I knew it all. And then I read this book. Ms. Metzler allows us a glimpse into what a recruiter is really thinking, from how we are dressed, how we answer interview questions, what a gap in our resume really means, and much more. The advice is top-notch and although we regret to admit it, much needed. The insight can benefit anyone- whether, like me, you are a recent grad seeking to enter your first professional job, a professional switching careers, are looking for a promotion, or just looking for a way to sharpen your professional skills. I have loaned my copy to friends and believe every college student should read it before graduation."
"I really enjoyed the book and will be referencing back to it as I am looking to graduate soon and find a job.
Alysse offers an insider's perspective and goes a step further to make sure she has collected data from other recruiters to really be able to support her advice and its validity and relevance to those job hunting.
It is an easy read and even though some might be thinking it will just offer the same advice we have all heard a bunch of times, I can guarantee anyone who reads it will at least be able to take away something new that allows them to be better in pursuing a meaningful job."
"I bought this book as a guide to searching for jobs after being let go from my company. It had been over 10 years since I interviewed or even looked for a new job so I felt that this book would help get me up to speed. The book not only got me up to speed with the best practices for today’s job seekers but it also provided valuable insight into the workings of recruiting firms and recruiters. The information is not just the author's opinion as most of the best practices described in the book are validated by surveys the author took from over hundreds of professionals in the recruiting industry. After reading this book I feel completely prepared for my job search as the book covers everything from resume writing to best practices of interviewing."
