The rules for finding a job have changed. Sending your résumé to headhunters, applying for jobs online or responding to advertisements are time wasters. Instead, recruiter Paul Hill shows you how to create a professional online presence – a “ProfessionaliBrand” – that tells future employers who you are and why they should hire you. Hill’s job-hunting advice starts with a foray into self-help with recommendations for techniques you can use to build confidence and overcome negative emotions that impede your ability to get a job. Some readers will benefit from this kick-off, while others may find it off-putting, but anyone who is job hunting can learn from Hill’s far more extensive advice about making the most of your résumé, your online activities and your ability to network. getAbstract recommends his guidance to those searching for a job or for a career change that really fits.
In this summary, you will learn
- How to create a dynamic online profile to boost your job search,
- How to network and market yourself to potential employers,
- How to overcome negative emotions that interfere with your career aspirations, and
- How to align your career with your true interests.
