Book Review: The Job Search Solution by Tony Beshara

The Job Search Solution: The Ultimate System for Finding a Great Job Now ! (Job Search Solution) The Job Search Solution: The Ultimate System for Finding a Great Job Now! by Tony Beshara

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I downloaded this as an mp3 from my library, and made it through 4 of 12 hours. It was just too "sales-y" for me. I understand that finding a job is a matter of selling yourself, but I didn't find the author's presentation appealing, or motivating for that matter.

The book appeared to be read by the author - definitely READ, not "performed". His presentation was rather stilted, and the sound quality was poor in several places, which was distracting.

There was one particular section where Beshara talked about all the reasons one might or might not be hired, which had nothing to do with the candidate, but rather the hiring manager - you're too tall or too short, you're too old or too young, you're too pretty or too average, office politics, or just a bad day. He spent quite a bit of time on this, but didn't offer anything to compensate for this issue - no tactics to get around these prejudices, nor even any motivational pep talk to just "stick with it".

Job hunting is hard enough - I'd rather feel like someone was on my side, instead of yelling at me for not trying hard enough (read: via HIS methods).

End result: deleted before finishing
