    schema:description "Overview: Recent graduates looking to enter the workforce face a discouraging job market and stiff competition for even the most entry-level positions. Yet with the right attitude and strategies, they can break into any organization in any industry and start climbing the ladder to success. When he was only 21 years old, Pete Leibman landed his "dream job," working in the front office of the NBA's Washington Wizards. He went on to be their #1 salesperson for three straight seasons and was promoted to management in under two years. In I Got My Dream Job and So Can You, Leibman shares his proven and simple system for career success. He shows readers how to: Think big and identify what they want from their career; Network their way past corporate gatekeepers; Impress highly influential people in any field; Land interviews for "hidden" jobs; Sell themselves on paper, online, and in person; Get hired faster and with less effort than they thought possible. Career hopefuls will also find inspiring stories of other young professionals, creative strategies for leveraging social media in the job-search process, and the 5 secrets that will skyrocket their earning potential once they are hired. In short, all the information they need to land the job of their dreams-in any economy."@en ;
