Meet the Author



Rick Gillis, founder of The Really Useful Job Company, is a talk radio host, public speaker and author.

After several years as a live-sound engineer based out of El Paso, Texas followed by nearly 10-years in commercial real estate, Rick relocated to Houston in 1995 seeking a change of career. In a very short time, he became employee number one of a brand new internet start-up called HoustonEmployment.com, the first Houston-based local employment website. As a direct result of Ricks sales efforts, HE.com quickly became the go-to site for a host of the most recognized corporations located in Houston such as Compaq Computer (now HP), Continental Airlines, The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Treatment Center, Shell Oil Company, Rice University and even major league baseballs Houston Astros.

In early 1998, Rick was asked to speak to a job seekers networking group on how to utilize the internet in the job search. During that first presentation, Rick began studying job seeking. Watching, listening and learning from job seekers, as well as the human resource and staffing company professionals he was meeting on a daily basis, Rick developed a version of what soon came to be known as Guerilla Job Search Tactics - a presentation of the fundamentals of the job search that most academics and professionals dont even acknowledge.

The compelling central theme of this message is simple: Show me, as an employer, how you are going to make me money or save me moneyand I will assure you of finding the job you want.

This basic premise applies to all aspects of the job search from the preparation of your Superior Resume and 30-secondelevator pitch to the interviews that result. Even more importantly, it has been proven to apply to all levels of job seeking - from entry level to the boardroom. It is this simple statement, coupled with his energetic and entertaining style, that has launched Ricks professional speaking career.
