In Knock ‘Em Dead, Martin Yate teaches people how to get a job in today’s tough economy. You must have a professional brand in order to succeed and stand out from others.  A good professional brand consists of your transferable skills, learned behaviors, and core values in the workplace.

He also included several difficult questions that job interviews may ask you. He provided the way to professional answer them.

Some of the questions include:
“Why do you want to work here?” 
“What are you qualifications?”

I enjoyed learning the many job techniques in Knock ‘Em Dead 25th Anniversary Edition. The book is a great guide for your professional careers to always use and refer back to. I would recommend Knock ‘Em Dead to anyone who is looking for a job or need to improve in their professional career. Yate taught me how to make my own professional brand and how to land the job in my interviews. He immensely helped me to create my resume and make it look professional and appealing to bosses. The book also contained thirty fast growing occupations in today’s economy. Some of them included Pharmacist, Athletic Trainer, Medical Assistant, Computer Software Engineer, and much more. I am currently in College so I might need to be changing my major soon! If want to succeed in the workplace then this book can and will help you!
