I believe working through this book really can make a difference for any job seeker.
A job interview really isn’t a measure of your personal or professional worth. It is about an organization matching people against the criteria they have chosen to apply. So they didn’t think you were the perfect match on the day. That doesn’t mean you are not an outstanding professional with great ability – it just means they think they were not looking for you.
Letting people you know ,and people they can introduce you to, what you have to offer, really does bring new opportunities. These contacts can offer advice from own their experiences of job search. They can tell you about the sector they work in and they can introduce you to others, so that your network expands.
