“I have been using your HR text for a few semesters now, and I am getting very positive responses from my students. Some of them have mentioned that they will always hold on to the text as a reference source. The students have also found the career development guide to be very useful. The example statements provided are excellent! I like that you provide examples of the not so useful statements too. Students find this especially useful. The guide on - getting the job in a Q&A format is great. No other books provide this information - so, thank you! I hope to continue using your book for semesters to come.”(Meghna Sabharwal )
