100% JOB SEARCH SUCCESS, a text in the 100% Success Series, is directed at the development of professional skills and characteristics that begin in college and extend through the job search and into the lifelong learning environment of the workplace. The second edition of 100% JOB SEARCH SUCCESS provides practical information that students can apply to increase their effectiveness and success in the job search. The new edition reflects three major shifts in this process, two of which are driven by technology. These include the advent of professional social networking, such as the use of LinkedIn as a job search tool (Chapter 4), and the online application process (Chapter 5). The other trend is in the emergence of the need for transferable skills (Chapter 2), those skills that an applicant has gained through life and work experiences that can be applied directly to their future position. Employers are seeking out candidates who possess not only specific job-related skills but also those skills, such as communication, organization, management, leadership, and human relations, that make for a well-rounded employee. In this highly competitive job market, using these new tools will help ensure that your students will have a measure of success in their job search.
"I believe [100% JOB SEARCH SUCCESS] helps develop professional skills that a student can use in their job search success after they graduate. The book gives a student the skills to market themselves in a real world setting." -- Vickie Saling, Heald College
