Today's college students face a challenging job market requiring greater attention to job search basics. A new book, written in collaboration with students, employers, and university administrators, provides sound advice on how to best find and keep jobs.

What happens when two of America's leading career writers join the top online employment site for college students? They produce a unique job search book designed to assist college students and recent grads in finding jobs and launching new careers. Recognizing the realities of student job hunting - often lacking time, focus, and structure - the authors outline a step-by-step process for finding the perfect job within 90 days.

Authors of more than 35 career books, Ron and Caryl Krannich, Ph.Ds., have teamed up with CampusCareerCenter.com to produce the definitive guide to today's turbulent employment market. Former university professors and career advisors to millions of readers, the Krannichs draw on their many years of career planning experience as well as an active community of students, employers, and university administrators who participate in the popular CampusCareerCenter.com website.

The book begins with a pre-test of readers' knowledge, skills, and behaviors for job search success - "What's Your Hiring I.Q.?" - that sets the stage for the remainder of the book. Outlining a seven-step sequential job search model, the authors detail the most important aspects of the job search, including a rich collection of relevant examples andexercises: skills assessment, goal setting, research, resume and letter writing, networking, interviewing, and salary negotiations. Recognizing both the interpersonal and electronic nature of the job search, the authors carefully integrate the use of theInternet into a traditional face-to-face job search by revealing numerous helpful websites for enhancing each job search step. A special chapter on getting started on the new job includes observations of recent graduates who share lessons learned about their new work world. A resource-rich chapter focuses on three employment arenas of keen interest to college students: government, nonprofit, and international. A final chapter profiles 53 employers who regularly recruit college students and graduates for internships and part-time and full-time positions. Throughout the book several college career counselors give advice on what works best in the job-finding trenches for college students and recent graduates.

Filled with cutting-edge strategies, tips, self-assessment exercises, and advice from students, employers, and counselors, here's the ultimate college transition book. It speaks directly to students about what they need to do to quickly find a good job that leads to a career compatible with their unique mix of interests, skills, and abilities. The book no student should leave college without!
