25 Irreverent Rules for Getting a Job
In today’s job market, you are a product, and your employer has many different products to choose from. But remember, your employer is a service — a work provider — and you have many different services to choose from, too.
Bob Weinstein has built a career on advising you about yours. He is right on target in his latest book, a snappy, honest, conversational guide to job-hunting.

Whether you’re looking for a new job, or your next one, getAbstract highly recommends this book to everyone from custodians to CEOs.
In this summary, you will learn
- What the 25 new rules of job hunting are;
- Why you should examine whether you still love your job every six months; and
- Why retirement is a failed concept.
