Abstract:

There is one basic difference between this book and the many others on similar topics: This one works! For over 20 years, the author has refined techniques presented here, and they have helped over a million people find better jobs in less time. These techniques increase results in job search programs -- even in areas of high unemployment -- for career changers, students, unemployed professionals, and anyone planning a career or looking for a job. In a project demonstrating the techniques in this book, 96 percent of the participants got jobs in an average of 21 days. Remarkable, this occurred in the city with the highest unemployment rate at the time -- over 25 percent. This completely revised book provides practical and easy-to-use advice in a lively, interactive, and interesting format. Whether you have a clear job objective or not, Getting the Job You Really Want will help.
