24 Career Experts Share Their Top Resume TipsOctober 29, 2016
I’m super excited to announce that “Find Your Fit,” the 2016 book from the Association for Talent Development book (ATD) is on pre-order right now! I’m very proud to be a featured author alongside several national career experts, many of whom are my friends. In the book, I touch on networking for job search, debunk some job search myths, and share time-tested techniques for making networking events more productive and less painful.
Here’s a bit more about the book:
You want—no you need—a new job. But not just any job. The job. So you polish your resume till it shines. You apply for countless openings, tailoring your message to each. You search for the hidden job market, although it remains very well hidden. And the response? Well, it’s underwhelming. To top things off, maze-like online application systems appear designed to keep you and the perfect job apart. What’s going on? Well, you’ll have to read it to find out….
As a result of the book launch, there are a few promotions I’d like to share:
1. There will be a GoodReads giveaway starting on October 7th… eight copies will be given away to people who sign up on the site. Here’s the link!
2. Monday Motivators! Job search is hard enough, but Mondays seem to make it even harder. Click here to get a little inspiration in your inbox every Monday. Finding a job is hard. Re-energize your search with motivational career tips and tools each Monday for the next five weeks. These weekly motivators will come from career expert contributors to the new book. With a little help, you’ll be motivated to:
-Identify the job you want.
-Get your resume ready.
