"One of the most important - and complex - decisions for an MBA or other college graduate is the choice of his or her initial job. In every case, the job-seeker's bundle of skills, interests, and aspirations will have to meet the test of the labor market.
This process of mathcing the skills and goals of the job-seeker with the range of opportunities that exist, or will exist, in the labor market is not self-effectuating. It involves both the formulation of personal strategies and a program of search designed to let the world know what you have to offer. If the process is carried out with skill and sensitivity, it is literally true that the new graduates will have the most complete information and widest array of choice that they will enjoy in their entire career.
This book is designed to help the new college graduate, MBA, and even the experienced business professional maximize the unique opportunities that exist when he or she moves out into the job market. It discusses how you can develop personal strategies and carefully walks you through the detailed steps that are so critical in developing the information and choices that you seek. It draws on a wide range of practical experience in making the matching process between jobs and job-seekers work. This book won't guarantee that every story has a happy ending, but it helps assure that you will be able to find your way when you enter the world of work."
