One of the most distressing and dispiriting things that can happen to any human being is to not be able to find a good job. Sadly, the post-Great Recession economy has made this situation more commonplace, with everyone from seniors in college to senior citizens wondering, How am I going to land a good job in this new environment? Or land another one if I’m layed off? (Today’s 5 percent unemployment rate, while certainly welcome, masks deep structural shifts in the economy that have made searching for a quality job far more difficult and frustrating for millions.)
Kurt Kirton offers an empowering solution in his outstanding new guide Here Today, Hired Tomorrow: A Practical Guide to Getting the Job You Want Fast. In crisp, clear—even comforting—English, Kurt spells out exactly what you must do to move confidently forward. Among the crucial topics Kurt helps you with are:
- How to create your strategic job-search action plan;
- Targeted networking . . . exactly what you must do to maximize its power in your job search;
- The things you MUST know about networking events and applying for jobs;
- Interviewing: What really are the secrets of doing it right?
- Secrets of negotiating and accepting a position.
You’ll also learn exactly how to break through to insiders at your target companies, and streamline your efforts using time-saving scripts, templates, and quick lists.
I can’t put it more succinctly than this: If you want an interesting, fulfilling job—but don’t how to move toward it confidently, competently, and quickly—grab your copy of Here Today, Hired Tomorrow. But don’t do it today or tomorrow. Do it yesterday.
