Review: I found this book to be very interesting and very useful for job seekers. Hiring process and analogies presented in the book are easily understood and adapt. The companies’ hiring requirements are mentioned so clearly that the person going for an interview has all scenarios very clear in his/her mind. I am not an IT professional but I would definitely recommend this book to my students or acquaintances who are studying to become IT professionals. The book is very reader friendly as it was small & handy. This book prepares the candidate how to be ready when the big day arrives. Kudos to both the authors for writing this book which would help many job finders and others similar.
I write a lot, which keeps me off the streets and out of trouble. There is always something to write about, always a new story to craft. Not writing, for me, is like trying to hold back a sneeze. Learning to write was the most powerful influence in my life. I can still remember the awe I felt when I realized I could put real words onto paper and tell out a story. From that first ‘a-ha’ moment I knew I wanted to write.
