blank_pageThere are many career books on how to find a job. Books may tell you to network but not how to do so effectively. Books will encourage you to follow up on leads but not how to create your own. Books may promise you your dream job but not explain the steps needed to get there. Books may guide you in creating a resume but not how to change it for every job. Lion Cub Job Search: Practical Job Search Assistance for Practical Job Seekers will take you on a step-by-step journey towards not only securing that next job but creating career sustainability. Subject matter includes networking, interviewing, cover letter/resume preparation, managing family stress, avoiding job search scams, career direction and more.
Lavie gives an overview of the book:
A moment that I will never forget is the first time I visited my school’s career services office. Up until that point, I had been going it alone. Now that I was about to finish school, I thought that it was time to check in with the career services office. After all, they had been promoting their extensive network of business leaders and alumni contacts. Finding that first job in marketing would be a snap, right? After my meeting with a career services staff member, I felt like I was doused with a cold pale of water. I was told that I had to network to find a job (without any concrete examples, beyond the most obvious ways, of how to do so), my resume was ripped apart without any rhyme or reason and I was given a job book to thumb through in the waiting room, featuring old jobs printed from the major public job boards.
