It is well written and based upon a generation of experience. With this guide, you cannot go wrong.” Dr. Benjamin Bowser, Professor Emeritus, California State University, East Bay, and author of “Confronting Diversity Issues on Campus.” “After having recruited for thirty years, I find myself wishing this book had been available to me when I started. Not only is this something every job seeker should read, but it is something recruiters and hiring managers should read. Solari takes the hiring process and breaks it down to such detail that everyone who reads it is going to understand hiring much better than they did before. It is a must-read for anyone involved in the hiring process. I highly recommend this book.” Jon Gundersgaard, Former Staffing Administrator, Seagate Technology
