There are numerous books focused on job search strategies and techniques on the market today. To make your life easier, here’s my pick of several of the best job search books around (most of which I’ve read), and all are very affordable:

‘What Color Is Your Parachute? A Practical Manual for Job-Hunters and Career Changers’ by Richard Nelson Bolles. This book is updated and revised annually and was first published in 1970! The 2009 version is now available for purchase. If you want to save some money, I recommend buying the previous (2008) version or even a version prior to this. Importantly, this book comes highly recommended by a University Professor who specialises in business and recruitment and lectures throughout Queensland Universities.

‘Knock ‘Em Dead: The Ultimate Job Seeker’s Handbook’ by Martin Yate

‘Career Coward’s Guide to Job Searching: Sensible Strategies for Overcoming Job Search Fears’ by Katy, Piotrowski

‘Ultimate Job Search Book’ by Lynn Williams

‘Tell Your Story, Win the Job: The Best Kept Secret to Job Search Success’ by Fred Coon

‘The Complete Job Search Book for College Students’ by Richard Walsh

Enjoy the reading!
