"Helps employers to not take themselves so seriously.... Every recruiter will have a Letterman-type top ten from this book. It was fun to read."
David B. Palmer, Human Resources Manager
"A wonderful collection of stories about searching for a job. The stories are diverse, well-written, and instructional. This comprehensive volume of short tales provides a wide range of experiences, usually those to avoid, that can plague job seekers. Most of the stories have a point that we should keep in mind when going for an interview. Overall, the book was amusing and upbeat. Terse and punchy writing style."
Dale Weinberg, President,
"Different! Greg Farrell and his team have used a unique strategy to present information that is timely and relevant to a job search in the 1990s. . . . stories and anecdotes are delightful reading, and each of us can relate to the unique circumstances and often hilarious situations we have all faced in our job searches. . . . should be required reading for all job search professionals."
