KIRKUS REVIEW

With none of the irritants of Glenn Gardiner's How You Can get The Job You Want (1962- Harper & Row) or the inner-directed-self-analysis of Austin Marshall's How to Get a Better Job (Appleton-Century-1964), the last two reviewed here, Mr. Boll's book is actually much more definite and explicit. He will give you a swinging directive- ""You must make yourself into the one man in a hundred- you can even be one man in a thousand""--he will also contraindicate with equal vigor- ""I consider the use of employment agencies a very passive way of pursuing a job."" Most of the book consists of hims ""Job Campaign"" which is tri-partite: the resume; the broadcast letter; and the interview- you take charge of it. He makes a good many more positive and negative recommendations throughout which is perhaps why he has helped people ""from office boys to presidents of the largest corporations in America"" get jobs.
