Finding a good job can take a lot of effort. But our options are endless. What we need is a little time, patience, and perspective. Thanks to technological advances, there are many new job opportunities. That’s why networking is more indispensable than ever. Your GPS to Employment Success is a useful book because it explains this and guides us step by step through the process of finding the ideal job. This book covers everything we need to know from how to write a proper resume, to how to interact with new coworkers. We will also learn about useful skills for work and daily life: being organized, having technical skills, collaboration, communication, and above all, self-motivation. Beverly A Williams is a former HR executive and knows how to explain a variety of topics with simplicity and practicality.

It is important to prepare for finding a job. Know what to do and what not to do. Having a face-to-face interview, receiving a phone call, or participating in a video conference are very different experiences. There are always things that it is better to know to avoid small mistakes that rob us of a great opportunity. Your GPS to Employment Success clearly explains everything. I liked the explanations through stories and anecdotes because, from other experiences, we can better understand the information. Another positive aspect is the large number of tips, which are useful because the author includes many references in all chapters so that we can verify the information. Beverly A Williams teaches readers that we must learn to take responsibility and finding a good job is paramount.
