Suit Yourself. Shopping for a Job.
This manual, designed especially for women but applicable to men as well, is aimed at helping the reader to find a job/career suited to individual talents, education, and needs. It takes a step-by-step approach from self-appraisal to appraisal of the job market to looking for and securing a specific job. The 10 sections of the guidebook lead the reader through a self-assessment (with self-profile forms provided) to a look at employment opportunities, to setting job targets and career goals. Other sections give practical tips for marketing oneself--writing resumes, job application, and letters, making a good impression, handling job interviews, and finally, getting the "almost perfect" job. An annotated bibliography on job hunting and career planning is included. (KC)
