Recommended Reading

Setting out on the path to a new career takes time and thought. Rather than jump right in, invest in yourself by examining some ideas and suggestions from experts in job search.

There are a lot of books out there. We’ve selected these specifically.

  • The first few will help you establish a new direction — if that’s what’s right for you!
  • One is a great guide to handling interviews, if you intend to continue your job search. Plus, you’ll recognize the updated classic, What Color Is Your Parachute, worth having as a resource.
  • Two books deal with the relatively new concept of “emotional intelligence,” sure to come up at any interview.
  • And at the end, an easy read to help you develop some new, productive habits.

All these books are available at Amazon. Prices vary, of course, depending on whether you want to read them on Kindle, buy a paperback, or buy a hardcover. On the day we put together this list, several of the books were available for free. Check the reviews, of course, to see if you are drawn to — or put off by! — what other readers have found.

Whatever, add “reading” to your daily schedule. You’ll be adding value that will serve you from now on!
