Summary: New York Times, Wall Street Journal , and USA Today bestseller "You can have the finest moves in the talent contest, you can boast a trophy speed-dial list on your iPhone, you can possess the single-mindedness of Paul Revere and be as self-assured as Muhammad Ali . . . and you still won't nail the job unless you know how to mold and merchandise your personal pitch. If this is true when times are booming-and it is-you can only imagine how true it is in times like these." Harvey Mackay, Fortune magazine's "Mr. Make- Things-Happen," has written five New York Times bestsellers, including one of the most popular business books of all time- Swim with the Sharks Without Being Eaten Alive . Now he returns with the ultimate book on how to get, and keep, a job you truly love whether you're twenty-one, fifty-one, or seventy-one. The average person will have at least three career changes and ten different jobs by age thirty-eight. In this era of downsizing and outsourcing, you can never be sure your job will still exist in five years- or five weeks. So you'd better think of your career as a perpetual job search. That demands a passion for lifetime learning and the skills for relentless and effective networking. Mackay shows you how to be at your best when things are at their worst. His hard-hitting topics include: - beating rejection before it beats you - warning signals that you might be losing your job - acing interviews - negotiating the job you want not the job they offer - taking advantage of the way bosses make hiring decisions - blending the latest contact tools with old-fashioned face-to-face networking Uplifting, amusing, and jam-packed with proven tips, Use Your Head to Get Your Foot in the Door will guide you through the toughest job market in decades. It's also the definitive A-to-Z career resource for the rest of your life. .
