Summary: The perfect book for today's tough economy: mega- bestselling business guru Harvey Mackay shares his timeless advice for getting and keeping a great job! At age 77, Mackay hasn't lost any of his enthusiasm, and his new book is as passionate and optimistic as his classic bestsellers. He wants to help everyonefrom new college grads to laid off fiftysomethings. The average person will have at least 3 to 5 career changes and 12 to 14 different jobs before the age of 38. In the age of downsizing and outsourcing, you can never be sure that your job is safe - or will be safe in a couple of years. The result? People are staring to spend their entire lives in a perpetual job search - and they need the attitude and skills to pull it off. Especially the skills for relentless and effective networking, coupled with a passion for lifetime learning. According to Mackay, too many people get a defeatist attitude about finding a great job. They get stuck in a rut at a job they hate. Or, if they're unemployed, they grab the first thing offered to them. This book offers a better way. Mackay shows readers how to prepare for the job search so they won't find themselves unemployed without a clue where to go next. Drawing on real-life stories of people who have transformed their lives by finding the right career, he shows how to: * rebuild your personal confidence in the face of rejection * create a daily "recovery program" and job search * take advantage of the way firms and recruiters make hiring decisions * use state-of-the art networking strategies * find job security even in today's tough economy With his characteristic short, witty style, Mackay inspires readers to take charge of their careers, instead of letting the job hunt take charge of them.
