KIRKUS REVIEW

This stems out of the work of the Job Finding Forum of the Advertising Club of New York City, publicized through the article in The Reader's Digest of Oct. 1949. A final chapter on establishing such a Forum in other places includes a letter written by the chairman, and this chapter is followed by a file of sales presentations that have worked. The main body of the book is, however, a handbook for practical use on the lines indicated by the title. It is original -- and one of the best I have seen. While the outline substance follows more or less routine tracks, the development of the ideas gives meat for constructive application. How to ""package yourself""- how to prepare an experience record- how to analyze yourself- what services you have to offer- how to analyze the market into which you want to go- how to prepare a resume (differentiating this from the initial ""packaging"" idea)-letters- interviews- follow through. And then, salient points in adjusting to the job once it has been landed. Useful for vocational guidance, for personnel office reference, for college bureaus advising students on the right approach to the job hunting process, and so on.
