Overview

"Laid Off." is a comprehensive job search guide. It is a conversational, no-nonsense guide to help anyone looking for work to avoid job search pitfalls, write resumes that actually get read, transition smoothly from one job to another, know what to expect in today's job market (this is the non-nonsense part), and horn interview skills from the hiring managers point of view and methodology, and much, much more.
"Laid Off." gives the applicant lists of 171 powerful action verbs used to start resume achievement statements, 72 professional strengths and qualities that must be conveyed to interviewers, 68 interview questions that need to be answered with confidence, 20 personal qualities used to sell a top candidate, 19 immediate concerns when changing jobs, 18 recommended job search sites, 14 specific resume examples, 13 considerations when identifying an ideal job, 12 qualities that employers look for in a top applicant, 14 items needed for a job search, 11 prepared items to take to an interview, a section on goal setting, and Mary Ann's 7 c's for interview survival.
This book is also perfect for organizations who are downsizing, laying off, re-structuring, or for example, military departments transitioning personnel to civilian jobs. This book would be perfect to buy and give away to their transitioning personnel. I have seen where this material is a thought tool to help ease the pain of leaving an organization.
Coming soon on www.iamlaidoff.com will be ongoing "job search tips" that will work hand-in-hand with the book. Additionally, interested applicants can comment and ask for help on maryann@iamlaidoff.com.
