Book Review – Excuse Me, Your Job is Waiting: Attract the Work You Want

A marketing firm contacted me and asked if I would be interested in reviewing “Excuse Me, Your Job is Waiting: Attract the Work that You Want” (aff. link) by Laura George. I was going to decline since I’m not in the job market at the moment, but something told me to get the book and read it. I am so glad I did.

I’ve been hearing a lot about the law of attraction and the power of positive thinking. I’m a believer that positive thoughts bring positive results. Things always seemed to go better in my life when I wasn’t down and out. But the law of attraction was a newer concept for me and one that I was interested in learning more about.

It turns out that a good portion of the book explains the law of attraction and positive energy. The first half of the book this information is intertwined with seeking employment…er, rather…attracting employment and the principles described in detail can apply to your life in general. While reading the book, I found myself thinking about how to apply principles of the law of attraction to our debt reduction and life in general.

If time permitted, I probably would have read this book in one sitting. The information in the book was very interesting and very thought provoking. I found myself wanting to read more and more because the principles discussed were making sense to me.

I have read many books on how to get a job in the past. Most have been fairly cut and dry and repeat the same things. Not this book. It takes seeking employment to another level, a level that is likely to help all aspects of your life. With reading this book, I wondered how things would be today if I read this book while in college. Instead of the fairly negative thoughts towards employment that I had, perhaps after reading the book I could have turned it around and created positive energy.

As for the tone of the book, I found it very positive and the author had a way of connecting with me. Since she’s been on both sides of a human resources desk (as someone seeking a job and as someone interviewing others for a job), I felt confident about her authority on the subject. She is very personal, often citing her own experiences in the book and adding bits of humor in here and there. Quite a few times I broke out in laughter.

Overall, I enjoyed this book. I feel that it enhanced my life after reading it and that is always a good thing. It also created more interest in the law of attraction and I am now interested in reading “Excuse Me, Your Life is Waiting” by Lynn Grabhorn (which the book references). As always, I’ll write my thoughts about what I learn here.

Here’s the part I love…
