A Fantastic Guide for Job Seekers

As a librarian, I come acrosss lots of books for job seekers and most of them are just so-so. Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0 by Jay Conrad Levinson and David E. Perry is absolutely stellar.  Most handbooks are filled with suggestions and tips that are so general that I’m left thinking, “this is great but how do I apply it or put it into practice.”  Not this one.  If you use this book, you won’t be left hanging in thin air.  It’s got  the ingredients and the instructions for success in your job hunt.

Personal branding is the buzz these days but what does it really mean? You will learn it’s all about leadership and communication skills, taking iniative, passion and cultural compatibility.  That’s just an introduction for the actually strategy follows.  The specifics are outlined in the next 15 pages.  It describes how to show an employer that you will add value to the organization by presenting your accomplishments in dollars and cents.

Of course, the whole world talks about the importance of networking but what does that entail?  Chances are you won’t find a job through someone you know.  So, learn how to network as if you were a professional headhunter. This book will tell you exactly how to do it.

Have you heard compelling stories about using LinkedIn or other social networking tools but don’t know where to start?  Levinson and Perry have some wonderful tips and techniques that are sure to work.

You will most likely find this book at your public library.

  1. Hello https://yourcareeryourbusiness.wordpress.com/2012/05/26/a-fantastic-guide-for-job-seekers/ admin. I discovered your “A Fantastic Guide for Job Seekers Your*Career*Your*business Blog” page via Google but it was difficult to find as you were not on the front page of search results. This means you are missing out on a lot of website traffic from the search engines. I have found a website which offers to dramatically increase your rankings and traffic to your website: http://www.linklegends.com/7-day-free-trial. They managed to get close to 1000 visitors/day using their services, you could also get lot more targeted visitors from search engines than you have now. I used their services and got significantly more traffic to my site. Hope this helps 🙂 Take care.
