Good, but a bit conservative

by libcub (WorldCat user published 2008-11-04) Good Permalink

This book has some good ideas, and many lists or websites, some of which are also available on the author's website. However, given that this is a book about job-hunting on the Internet, it is odd that it is a bit old-fashioned. Overall, worth seeing.
