Hi and good luck with the book.

Hi, having been a Stay At Home Dad for several years I am now looking to get back into Java programming and also polish my interview technique.

Is this book suitable for that or is it just aimed at people currently in employment.

Thanks Kevin.

Thanks Kevin!
Firstly, a question for you- have you enjoyed being a stay at home dad? I've been trying to persuade my wife that when we decide to have kids she should let me be a stay at home dad, but she's not having any of it .

This book is definitely suitable for you. It's very much suitable as a from-the-beginning guide to the whole process. As I mentioned in another thread, most people seem to be woefully underprepared for interviews so the book really is aimed at people that haven't interviewed for a long time or with limited interview experience. I think it has something for everyone, but it will definitely work for you.

And (small sales pitch) there's a lifetime money back guarantee. Buy the book, and if you don't think it's helping you then you can have your money back. I don't want it! But so far everyone has been very pleased.

Hi Sam thanks for the reply and glad to hear the book will benefit me.

In answer to your question, being a stay at home dad has been very rewarding and also the hardest challenge I am ever likely to face in my career

Cheers Kevin.

In which case you should be bold about mentioning it in your applications.

Absolute. You must've learnt a ton about yourself, and new skills like extreme patience and coping under pressure!
