Publisher's Weekly Review

Whether you're a disgraced Enron vice president or an early retiree with a nose-diving portfolio, this how-to on job-hunting for the executive class could not be more timely. The authors, executive headhunters, prescribe planning exercises, filing systems, databases and relentless benchmarking (they suggest 50 job contacts per week as a realistic goal) to help ex-managers manage the demoralizing experience of joblessness. Despite the occasional lapse into motivational boilerplate ("Make up your mind right now that you have what it takes") and the stilted corporate-ese of their model interview responses ("I am an aggressive, results-oriented sales professional who loves to close the deal"), the authors provide much practical advice on resume-writing (even down to the font size), networking, cold-calling and using the Web to unearth unadvertised jobs. Some of their topics, like how to negotiate stock options, are aimed squarely at corporate high-flyers (alas, no tips on how to explain that pesky SEC investigation), but job-seekers of any tax bracket will find useful information here.
