Get the Job You Want in 30 Days based on 0 ratings. 6 reviews.
When my former company was being replaced by a larger organization, many people were concerned about their future employment. Gary Grappo personally conducted workshops for our staff utilizing the book as text. Those participating in the workshops and following the plan successfully landed jobs in their locations and careers of choice. We've kept in contact and they unanimously give credit to following the plan outlined in 'Get The Job You Want In Thirty Days'. This experience created a positive attitude toward outplacement. The book is not a one-time resource, but provides continual reference for supporting successful goal setting and self-marketing. It is a permanent resource in my personal library.
This book and G. Grappo's other books have been helpful beyond belief. As a professional trained in interviewing techniques, I still found his material usefull and straightforward. His steps were simple and easy to follow. Whether someone is looking for one's first job or is currently working and searching for a new job, Grappo's book will work wonders for anyone. Keep to his schedule and networking suggestions and you're sure to find an ocean of job opportunities. I have recommended this book and his others to many friends.
Get the Job You Want in 30 Days has been instrumental in helping me advance my career and find new jobs. Mr Grappo's focus on the importance of developing and maintaining a positive attitude is something that separates his book from other job search books. By developing a positive sense of self, Mr. Grappo teaches us how to ride out the waiting game often associated with seeking employment. I recommend this book highly, not only to those seeking a new job, but also to those seeking satisfaction and fulfilment in their lives. How to Get the Job You Want in 30 Days helped me on two separate job searches: in the first, I got a new job in about 20 days; the second, in about 7 days. It's a must read!!
I want to share some fantastic news with Gary and readers of his books. Recently, I've found a job in Human Resources with one of the leading vendors in the PC industry! I know one of the reasons I got my dream job was because I was following closely the advice from the book 'Get The Job You Want in 30 Days'. The chapters which discuss 'Interviewing' and 'Following-Up' were literally life savers! I faced many of the book's predicated situations and questions. Thanks for the guidance. I handled them well and managed to convince the panel I am the most suitable one for the job. I appreciate all the help, hints and 'tricks' you have shared with your readers. Thank you, Gary and here's wishing you all the best for your next project - Career ReExplosion.
I just got through reading Mr. Grappo's book on how to get the job you want in thirty days and would like to send many thanks for helping me on the quest for new employment. The book was very concise and to the point. It is hard to believe that a book this small could contain so much useful information.
I am resident of Moscow, Russia. Being specialist in Corporate Finance I had to change the job twice in last 3 years. Purely by chance I bought Gary Grappo's book in one store in Moscow and since then it became my tool to get the job I want in hard today markets in Russian. It helped me twice, the first time I found the job in 1 month after contacting 60 potential employers, second time it was respectively 5 and 100. I must say that the book written by Mr. Grappo helped me to survive in really hard environment and taught me a lot of the ways to become successful in life. I want to thank him full heartedly and to wish him success with his new book Career ReExplosion.
