Reviews - What do customers think about The Hunt for Green Octobers: A Practical Guide for the Job Seeker and the Committed Careerist?
Simple Steps for Job Seekers Feb 13, 2008
Bob has written a simple but effective guide that is especially good for job seekers who are not pursuing sales positions. I have read many books on the subject and found The Hunt for Green Octobers to be the quickest to the point with very little fluff and a system that can be followed. I read the book in an hour and felt it was worth every penny of the suggested retail price and the time invested. I wish I had read it sooner!
