Review:

Have you ever feared the prospect of losing your job? These days, who hasn't? Have you struggled with the morale-blasting effect of a never-ending job search? Do you simply want to move up in the job you have? The bestselling Sharkproof is a priceless guide for those facing today's vicious job market. It can help you get back on your feet as you bait sharks (the interviewer) and then reel them in (land the ideal job offer). Praised by such folks as Larry King, Elizabeth Dole, Steven Covey, and Jack Kemp, this friendly guide is divided into four sections: "Sink or Swim," "Ready?" "Aim...," and "Hired!" Sprinkling the book with humorous and inspiring anecdotes, author Harvey Mackey is clearly sympathetic to the demoralized job applicant, using gentle language and concentrating heavily on how to deal with being "dehired." He suggests ways to raise the spirits, such as volunteering for something you are passionate about. Once your self-esteem has returned, the job search can continue with more chances for success. Sharkproof contains most of the standard job search information, but does include some original ideas such as a post-interview evaluation form. "If the company that interviewed you is going to write a report on you," he asks, "shouldn't you, too?" This is an important read for anyone currently competing in today's "rat race." --Cate Bick

From the Publisher:
