    A book worth reading ¿ a couple of times !

    Never Apply for A Job Again is not just another book on job search. Okay - it is easy to read, it is entertaining, and it is well-written. But more importantly to me, I love the philosophical approach Darrell incorporates – because we are what we think and our thoughts determine our destiny. Pay attention to the new thoughts Darrell shares with you. I could list dozens of them, but here are some of my favorites:

    • Effective career shift requires paradigm shift.

    • Focus on running into people, not a database.

    • People bend the rules for people they know (like and trust).

    • What you are seeking is seeking you, but you have to say “Hello, I’m here!”

    • Being interested attracts. Being needy repels.

    • Never waste the opportunity of a good crisis.

    • If you fail to keep asking, the “no” is assured.

    • Approach from need, away they stampede. Approach from joy, the world will employ.

    • Sweet Spot Maintenance: to keep the career lights on in our soul.

    Longtime career-industry coach Darrell W. Gurney removes the mystique and uncertainty of networking by teaching the difference between “overt” job hunting and a “stealth” job campaign. He offers 10 time-tested principles for making connections with people who can help your career. Some readers might consider Gurney’s backdoor approach to landing a job a bit devious. But it nonetheless offers a viable mechanism for those willing to invest the time and energy it requires. Before you hand out another business card, getAbstract recommends that you consider the possibilities of implementing a stealth job campaign.

    Refreshing and solid

    So great to have someone write what I have long thought to be so true- people prefer to hire those whom they know or know of. It's really difficult to make a hire for the long haul. Authentic references are hard to come by. Networking is a win win pursuit- if I can help you, I feel better about myself and maybe you can connect me too. My favorite principle is #10- "Treat yourself like a business..."

    Pragmatic Advice that really works!

    My experience is that there's no way to get a job in this career climate by filling out applications online. Waste of time.

    What's great about this book is that Gurney gives you a pragmatic program on how to get inside companies, find opportunities, and also, crucially, to be remembered by the people you meet when new opportunities arise.

    If you read this book and do what it says, you're gonna beat 90% of the job seekers out there. It's already having impact on my life.

    The "how to's" to get to the "who's" that can hire you!

    "It's not WHAT you know, but WHO you know." An old saying that's true, and updated with "It's not WHO you know, but who knows YOU." This book gives you the "How to’s to get to the who’s!"

    As a trainer of career coaches, I have featured Darrell as a guest speaker for our coaching community because his message is so right-on. He has unveiled the secret to transforming the job search from fear and angst to freedom and ease. And, he does it with humor, insight, and hope. Applause, Darrell, for giving people the keys to career confidence and success!
