Book Review –
The book is broadly divided into two parts –
1. Describing each personality type.
2. How to get a job.
To use it as a personal guide, find your personality type by taking an online test and then read the corresponding pages of the same. Each and every personality type has been covered in detail along with possible job options suiting their personality type.
Now that you are aware about the broad stream one your personality matches, the next step is to find a job and clear interview rounds. In the second part of the book, Chandan Deshmukh has step-wise shared his professional insights right from preparation of resume to how the basic questions asked during the HR round must be handled and answered in the right way.
The book is very helpful, reliable and recommended. Easy to read and understand.
