Book Review: Your Dream Job: Use Dating Secrets to Get Hired and Build a Career You Love

dreamjob

Your Dream Job compares looking for a job to looking for a date. The hiring managers are super models and if you know what you’re doing you just might be able to land that date, I mean job, with them!

The downside to this book was there are too many references to movies and TV shows that I have never seen so they went right over my head.

I enjoyed the funny mistakes that job hunters made – and learned from them as well. (Although some of them seemed to be quite obvious things not to do..)

There’s a lot of great tips for what to do and not to do on your resume, when applying and once you land an interview. ┬áDefinitely a lot of things to keep in mind as I try to find my dream job!

I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review. I was not otherwise compensated.
