Can I Wear My Nose Ring – A Book Review


Can I Wear My Nose Ring to the Interview – The Crash Course – Finding, Landing, and Keeping Your First Real Job by Ellen Gordan Reeves answers humorous and realistic questions for job seekers. Covering everything from resumes to time management; networking to what to wear – this book covers it all. With catchy phrases such as “rallying your references,” the author shares important tips on how to effectively search for a job.

Can I Wear My Nose Ring to the Interview is divided into nine chapters containing various aspects of the job search. The first chapter covers how to set yourself up for success in the job search. In this chapter, Reeves shares her first important tip. Job seekers should stop looking for “a job” but rather look for “a person.” Job seekers need to step away from the computers, and add the human element for a successful job search. The human element can involve networking or using a specific name on a cover letter.

Reeves shares much of the same information as most recruiters, that looking for a job is a full-time job. She has “invented” a company for each job seeker called Job, Inc. Each seeker is the CEO of their own business; the full-time business of searching for a job.

As with many other job search books, Reeves extensively covers how to effectively prepare a resume. The book contains fine examples of what both good and bad cover letters and resumes look like. The majority of the information is not new; however, Reeves adds an extra element. Each section contains great “cheat sheets”. For example, the “terrible cover letter” section has a cheat sheet listing the worst introductions to use including; “Dear Associates,” and “I hope this letter finds you well.”

Can I Wear My Nose Ring to the Interview… adds an extra element to the ordinary job search book. What should you do once you get hired? The book incorporates the proper way to act once you do get the job. Topics include: setting up your new work station, listening, and learning the communication style of your new boss. Adding this extra section ensures you do not quickly end up back in the job market.

Even though Can I Wear My Nose Ring to the Interview contains typical job search advice, Reeves presents the information in a fun way to capture the reader’s attention.

This book was checked out of the local library for review.
