Overview

Anyone who thinks getting a good job is easy in this booming economy should think again. The real plum jobs are out there, but they're harder to get than ever. Now, bestselling author and innovative thinker Jeffrey J. Fox steps up to the plate once again with this no-nonsense collection of surprising and daring rules for landing the right job. Fox offers a Job-Getting Blueprint, a Job-Seeker's Glossary, several first interview questions, as well as the basic form and variations for a boomerang letter. His rules not only help today's job seekers devise a winning strategy, but also show them how to prepare for and make the best impression in an interview.

Editorial Reviews

Talk about unorthodox job-hunting advice! Samples: "Don't send a resume." "Never start with the Personnel Department." "Tell 'em what the competitors say about them." "Don't talk in an interview." "No one cares about 'your job objective.' " "Don't ask about benefits." If author Jeffrey J. Fox weren't such a successful businessperson, one might dismiss his tips as the mind-fluff of an eccentric. But the CEO who gave us the bestselling How to Become CEO doesn't traffic in superfluities. His directives on landing a position are designed to place you a notch above the job seekers who never get called back.
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The old rules--such as relying on classified ads and just one resume--no longer work, according to marketing consultant Fox (How to Become a Rainmaker). Instead, people must target companies and connect with executives, not HR staff, he says. Fox discourages readers from endlessly submitting resumes, since the best results come from contacts and new leads. While his advice is familiar, he offers enough new strategies to make this book worthwhile. Agent, Doris S. Michaels. (May) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
