Aujla, CEO of the recruiting firm Catalog, which works with nonprofits and startups, presents a practical guide for young people looking for their first—or their first paid—job. The book aims to teach job seekers how to understand their own skills and needs, and thereby improve their chances of finding suitable employment. Good jobs, Aujla advises optimistically, will feel natural and rejuvenating; bad jobs will turn a hapless employee into a stressed-out clock-puncher. So how to find the right one? Chock-full of exercises, this well-laid-out collection of concrete advice will help young readers feel better equipped to define their dream jobs, research potential employers, prep for big interviews, network effectively, and overcome obstacles when they inevitably get mired down. Clearly talking to millennials, Aujla urges a high-confidence approach which may feel foreign to the anxious parents dispensing this book as a graduation gift to their college seniors, but which will be endlessly helpful to the graduates themselves. Aujla has parlayed his experience into an excellent job hunter's 101 for the young and ambitious—or just unemployed. (Apr.)
