Review & Giveaway: Career Comeback by Lisa Johnson Mandell



Sometimes being older can work against you when you are trying to find a new job. It seems like companies are always looking someone with their own sense of style. I'm not just talking about clothes, the appearance of resume can mean just as much. Being hip with the knowledge of people today can also boost your career. In her book, Lisa shares her advise about writing a younger resume and dressing in a way that will have your interviewer ready to hire you on the spot.

When it comes to careers and money, I don't think you can ever get enough advice. In the tough economic times we are facing, jobs are needed now more than ever. You deserve to receive all the helpful information you can get and Lisa's book is the first step.
