Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Following the success of the national bestseller "How To Become CEO", Fox lays down the rules on landing a dream job. Easy to read with inspiring advice, this book claims success with rules such as looking like a player, don't ask for directions, make a big splash and keeping mum in most interviews.

Description:

Counterintuitive commandments for hungry job-seekers from the bestselling author of How to Become CEO and How to Become a Rainmaker. Anyone who thinks getting a good job is easy in this booming economy should think again. Greater prosperity has made the work force smarter and more competitive than ever. The real plum jobs are out there, but they're harder to get than ever. Now, bestselling author and innovative thinker Jeffrey J. Fox, who has shown thousands of readers how to rise to the top of any organization, steps up to the plate once again with this no-nonsense collection of surprising and daring rules for landing the right job. Easy to read, inspiring, and often counterintuitive, these concise directives reflect the values of creative thinking and persistence that have made Fox one of America's most emulated businessmen. He has had proven success with all his rules, such as: --Look like a ballplayer --Don't ask for directions --Make a big splash . . . not a bunch of little ripples --Don't talk in an interview Fox also offers a "Job Getting Blueprint," a "Job Seeker's Glossary", several "first interview questions," as well as the basic form and variations for a "boomerang letter." His rules not only help today's job seekers devise a winning strategy, but also show them how to prepare for and make the best impression in an interview. This wisdom-packed book gives readers the edge on the competition, and helps prepare them for the challenges and rewards of landing not just a good job, but a great one.

This book is a very useful condensed version that lets you look at how people actually end up getting jobs and then consciously manipulate that real process to be better and more effective than it is when done without awareness.
In truth you rarely land a job by responding to an ad then getting picked. It's too much like the line up on the playground where there can be only one captain and everyone looks too pathetic except the shining star.
What this book does is help you find the people who will see you as a shining star and make choosing you for a job you convince them they need, or that they already know they need, the no-brainer option.
If this book is counterintuitive, it's only because people have been trained to pretend that the prescribed way to find a job is actually how you GET one, and it's not. If you think about it, the way you get jobs is by being recommended for something that you'd be good at by people who know what you're good at, or knowing someone who can see that you might be good at a job. This let's you get to the people who need to function in that way for you, whether you already know them or not.
I used to work training developmentally disabled for the work force. We didn't try to match our clients to the job. We were job developers. We found companies who needed our clients and helped them realize why. Finding a job is not a hunt, it's a development process. This book is the guide for THAT.
