The Modern Job Hunting Guide by Pete Mary is a straightforward guide with a view to demystifying online job hunting. There's no doubt the internet has changed many aspects of life, including job hunting. This guide is simple and effective for all ages and outlines the benefits of the major job hunting sites. It emphasises the main criteria that people should bear in mind when making job applications.

There are a few tips given for enhancing job applications and tailoring them to be effective and specific. It gives useful advice when the sheer process of applying can be daunting and says in simple terms that applications material should be condensed and coherent. Being visible and having a voice is definitely a common theme of the book. Highlighting skills and experience is another theme that is explained here. There are also simple overviews on job search websites which may give people a clear head start in using these sites effectively. The style of this guide is easy to read, practical and encouraging. It’s a short and comprehensive guide which is meant to be applied and practiced. Marketing yourself is a common view on job applications, but how to do this effectively is not always common knowledge, although practice helps.

I would recommend this guide for people of all ages looking for a short and simple guide to start off the process of effective and efficient searches and applications, improve their job hunting skills, and learn more about job search tools available online.
