Overview

Being unemployed can be a devastating experience, both financially and emotionally.
If you are like me, you grew up with an expectation of 'loyalty to the company' and had an expectation of some level of loyalty FROM the company.
However, the economic environment of the past few decades has fostered a mercenary corporate mindset; rigidly focused on the 'bottom line' with little regard for the human side of business.
Over the course of forty years, I have been on both sides of the interview table. As such, I have some unique perspectives on the interview process.
The purpose of this book is to share some of my insights, along with some things to do and to avoid during the job search endeavor.
I will use anecdotes, based on actual interview experiences to illustrate some of my points.
Eventually, you will understand why you 'Ignore the Rattlesnake'.
In forty years of hiring and being hired, I have NEVER hired a loser; all of my hires have turned into 'superstars' often being hijacked by other managers after seeing the quality of the employees I bring in.
Usually, I have a good feel before bringing anyone in for an interview. Within the first two or three minutes of the interview, I have made my decision.
{While writing this book, my employer of four years decided to ‘eliminate’ my position. They gave me 25 days notice. By following my own advice from this book, I accepted a job offer, less than two weeks into the job search, with a twenty percent increase in salary.}

Note: This book is intended to provide tips to a job seeker and does not imply any guarantee of employment. That is up to you.

Meet the Author

Ronald Goulden has written novels and stories for thirty years. Having served in Viet Nam as a Translator/Interpreter, He quickly adapts to new cultures and sees a story or an adventure everywhere. He has ‘dabbled’ in witchcraft, though he is not a witch. All of his novels and stories have interconnecting threads that link them into a larger universe, spanning space and time. Some of the links are obvious, while others are very subtle. Some of the events in the stories are based on real life, while others are pure fiction. The distinction between fact and fiction is up to the reader. Having studied witchcraft many years earlier, it had always been in my mind. When I became an IT Director for the Farm Credit bank system in Wichita, I observed the ‘power’ a small group of ladies expressed over others in the bank and their general disdain for many of the men. I had also researched the BTK Killer during his spree and developed a program that allowed me to ‘predict’ his next attacks. As such, I saw the potential for violence in anyone. After being treated rather rudely by the band of bank beauties, I decided to write a story to explain their odd and overbearing personalities. Using newspaper stories and personal experiences, I settled on baby sacrifices and Satanism. While the personalities and physical attributes are based upon real people I knew at the time, their involvement is this story is purely fiction. There are many ‘links’ in this story to the other novels I’ve written over time, essentially building an alternate universe.
