Seven Simple Steps to Landing Your First Job: The Shortest Path from Here to Hired is a unique addition to the range of career books. Rather than discussing resumes, interviews, and job sites, Seven Simple Steps shows how to brings these elements together into a manageable process. As this book goes into print, 15 million people in the United States are unemployed. About 2 million people enter the job market from undergraduate and graduate programs each year. Without some advantage, most of those graduates will be wading into a sea of numbers that are overwhelmingly against them. This book is that advantage.
