Knock ’em Dead: The Ultimate Job Search Guide 2011 by Martin Yate, CPC

When I was a college student, I read What Color Is Your Parachute, a classic in job hunting advice.

Knock ’em Dead is a worthy successor!

I received a free eBook copy of this title from the publisher in exchange for my unbiased review.

Because of the many internet resources available, I recommend purchasing the eBook format of this book.

Mr. Yate is a consummate professional and writes with great authority.  No matter your job search needs, this book is written with you in mind.

The only area in which I differ with the author is his high regard for another book, Alan Lakein’s classic How to Get Control of Your Time and Your Life.  If you benefit from to-do lists, then use Mr. Yate’s and Mr. Lakein’s time management principles.  Otherwise, I recommend using Stephen Covey’s timeless 7 Habits of Highly Successful People instead.

Don’t take my word for it, though.  If you’re interested, check out http://www.knockemdead.com/main/ before you buy this book.  You’ll find that the book, in conjunction with the free resources online, are worth every penny!

This book receives my highest recommendation, and good luck in your job search!
