    1. This was interesting, although I didn't love it. As someone who is interested in libraries, a lot of the corporate stuff just wouldn't work for me. And a lot of the "right" responses to interview questions just seemed so cheesy, fake, and obvious. Maybe this is super naive of me, but I believe in being honest in job interviews and not completely spinning the answer. I want to work in a place where I'm a good fit and where I'm happy. If I answer that I'm okay with any management style, and end up [...]

    5. I picked up a copy of this book at the local Dollar store, which is good because I am trying to be careful with my money since I am not working at the time I am writing this review. The author gives some really good tips for job hunting, networking and interviews. Some of it was just good review for me since I have taken local interview workshops in my area, sponsored by the State of Texas. But, it always good to keep fine-tuned to try to do one's best, particularly in our present horrible US ec [...]

    6. I see this book received less than 3 stars on average, and now I am curious as to why. As someone who was recently looking for a job, I find a lot of helpful anecdotes in this book, even after going through my fair share of outplacement training. The only knock on it may be the way it's organized. It tends to jump around a lot and be repetitive, but yet it's also arranged in a highly entertaining way. Let's face itb search books are usually dull and feel like there are bashing you over the head [...]

    7. It's all about the research and preparation before the interview even takes place. Then in the later chapters MacKay gives advice on how to handle the interview questions.
