Available now, the 4th edition is completely revised and significantly expanded with popular content from my job search workshop series,  years of job search coaching practice, and new resources. But even at 183 pages, it’s still a quick, pragmatic, humorous guide to the attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors of the successful job seeker.
