Read books!

Do you not like our perfectionist attitude? Is it because we always complain?

Here's the thing, we REALLY have a genuine belief for public service. It's just that... just that... our mouths can't be shut.

Okay, that's another issue entirely. Blame the randomness from a feedback we've received recently. Don't worry because we're stopping now. Before anyone makes the boo noise or punch us on the face, actually, THERE is a career topic to be discussed today, not just our personal insecurities. We DID set something up. Is the topic of books as career resources interesting enough for you?

Why aren't we not sure? We haven't done this in a while. What if you'll not like it the second time around (considering that the Good Reading portion of Career Advice at sg.jobsdb.com hasn't been updated in a long time)? What if you'll think that we're just making things more obscure with our writing style?

Crap. Here we are with our insecurities again, but we mean these questions well. If you'll be generous enough to comment on our performance after reading, we'll see that as a debt of gratitude. Just use the comments section below. We've chosen to not close it, risking our blog from spam, because we want to hear you guys out.

So yes, career books?

Industry news, career tips from experts, and good books can help you achieve success in your career building or job hunting pursuit. Combine all the things you'll learn from these resources and you'll give yourself a key for better luck with top employers and your boss. It's just that we tend to favor the first two more as writing topics. But well, here we are trying to correct that bias behaviour.

From those about personal development to job search, Good Reading has a lot of suggestions for you. But based on old comments, these are the best:
