Summary of The Million-Dollar Race
An Insider's Guide to Winning Your Dream Job
Are you hoping to win that top job that just opened up? Here’s how to beat the other 5,000 people who want it, too.
Perhaps your company downsized senior executives, closed its doors or merged with another firm. If you suddenly find yourself out of work, you surely want to find a management job with a salary commensurate with your recent earnings. Good luck. Today, the typical top-management position paying $120,000 or more will attract up to 5,000 applicants. “Talent architect” and corporate consultant Kirk Hallowell teaches you how to come out on top in this hypercompetitive environment, in part because he reflects the interests of the firms doing the hiring. getAbstract recommends his smart, useful book to corporate hiring officers and to anyone seeking a senior executive position.
In this summary, you will learn
- Why desirable management positions are scarce,
- How to plan a job search for such a position and
- What hurdles you must overcome to win the job.
