About The Book:
Unfortunately, getting older can be a career killer. That's what entertainment journalist Lisa Johnson Mandell discovered when she sent out a resume that made her sound like an aged veteran. Her new career makeover guide-expanded from the Wall Street Journal article about revamping her "older" image to land her dream job-acknowledges that experience matters, but looking and acting up-to-date matter just as much.

My Thoughts:
You may want to keep this book on your resource shelf. The information is applicable at any time but, in today’s down-sized, sluggish and, in some areas almost non-existent economy, you may find it to be a necessity. While it follows the true-life experience of Lisa Johnson Mandell, both sexes will find the advice personally useful.

I like lists and this book has plenty of them. For instance, a list of ways to figure out what you’re up against in today’s job market, and the things you can do to brand yourself or a new business concept.  Have you ever wondered if Botox worked on resumes, or, if you could interview like a Rock Star? Well, it does, and you can.

‘Shine Online’ is my favorite chapter, and why not, most of my work as a Romance Writer and Book Blogger happens online.  The book is well-structured, easy to follow, and contains advice anybody can implement, if they so choose.
