Janet Garber

"Finally Intelligent Writing"    "Funny Antics in an HR Dept"    "Great read!"

"Great Strategies For Getting a New Job"

A PhD/English Lit dropout from the University of Rochester, Janet Garber is fond of live blues and folk music, hiking in the “Gunks” with hubby, mixing up weird ingredients, and following printed street maps. She lives in what New Yorkers call "the country" with her husband and two emotionally-challenged rescue cats. She’s published fiction, nonfiction, poetry, essays, articles, book and movie reviews and a non-fiction book, I Need a Job, Now What? Upon retiring recently from a thirty-year career in human resources, she published a comic debut novel, Dream Job, Wacky Adventures of an HR Manager, because “some jobs in HR just cry out for satire.” If you've ever worked in an office, this book is for you!

Tony Lee, VP Editorial, SHRM says, "Janet Garber utilizes her keen sense of the HR world to create a funny glimpse into what might happen in a company run amok. Her writing style is a joy."

S. Amembal, Netgalley says, "The protagonist Melie's character is very endearing and her approach to dealing with the various employee 'issues' is something to look out for!"

Dream Job

Join Melie, HR manager, on her desperate search for solutions to the messes boiling over in Axis Mundi Medical Center. You will laugh but is it funny to her? Why can’t those buttock-groping doctors and their flaky staff just get along? As she tries to seize control, and incidentally get a life, she runs into a little murder here, a cancer there, a mystery man, rivals that are not always human, like Gladys, the first parrot-woman gladiator. She won’t quit until she has it all.
