Fun book recommendation of the day
Job Hunter Road is a hilariously funny look at what it takes to find a job that you love. It explores the extremes of the characters that one encounters on his/her journey to a new job in an entertaining way. With sharp humor, the book tackles some serious questions about finding job today. Why don't people love their jobs? Why do we make it so hard to change careers? Why do we require unnecessary and expensive degrees for everything? Does networking have to be so opportunistic? What stops us from reaching our career potential?
Job hunting is a challenge and not what it used to be. Resumes can no longer be merely informative. They move beyond the truth in describing personal success. On the other hand, interviews do not involve simply presenting yourself as an intelligent and capable person but as someone who is nearly a flawless multitasker. Someone who is eager to embrace a 24/7 job culture. In this book, Carl McCoy has stepped into this new employment world with insightful and well-timed comic relief. He uses humor to portray the characters driving the process, whose logic dominates the modern HR scene.
