Among the strengths of the rich, comprehensive Job Search Debugged is the fact that author Rita Ashley was a recruiter for many years, so she thoroughly understands the hiring process from the employer’s side of the desk. The other distinctive feature is that the book is filled with stories of clients and other job-seekers. Nothing beats real-life examples and anecdotes to get points across. Ashley is opinionated, and sometimes her positions clash — refreshingly — with conventional career-expert wisdom. She disdains, for example, the typical advice to be coy and guarded about one’s salary request when negotiating salary.And a testimonial from a user:
“I struggled for four months and got no interviews. Once I read Job Search Debugged and changed my resume and outreach, I was offered interviews over 50% of the time and finally had three offers. This was the best money I have ever spent on my career.”
