"There are a plethora of career advice books on the market and many of them could be labeled tomes, but who has the time to read all that? Bill Hobbs has been able to present many of the key concepts necessary to conduct a well-organized and ultimately successful job search campaign in an easy to read workbook.”

“The WORK Book is a very practical guide to help students understand work readiness. It is so obvious, but the professional disposition is what students miss the most when getting ready to enter the world of work.”

“I believe that this book is great for career professionals if they want a user guide for students enrolled in a career development class, a senior year experience program or capstone event. The activities allow a professional to guide students through awareness-building exercises and give the students the gift of processing that they rarely spend time doing as they transition from college to career.”
