Quick Overview

No matter how bad the economy and how high the unemployment rate, there always are jobs to be had and companies that are hiring. So where are job hunters going wrong? With what they say and how they say it. Author and leading career expert Andrea Kay presents a fascinating, and sometimes frightening, portrait of the many silly things that people do and say during the job-interview process—things that totally ruin their chances of success. People don’t prepare…they’re pushy…they are defensive. That’s just a few of the self-destructive behaviors hiring managers across the country talk about. Learn to stand out from the crowd and step into your next job. Forward by Bottom Line’s career development expert Eric Bolles.

Author Andrea Kay couldn’t stand listening to people complaining about their inability to get jobs…or radio interviews with frustrated job seekers who couldn’t figure out why they weren’t hired yet described mistake after mistake they made during their search process. She heard her husband telling similar tales of his inability to find qualified people for an opening in his small business. So she took to the streets and interviewed hiring executives across the company to find out the mistakes that job seekers make when trying to get themselves noticed and hired. Unlike most career-counseling books that focus on the “dos” of getting a job, This Is How to Get Your Next Job shares a long list of the “Don’ts” that are all too common among job hunters who are new to the workforce as well as veterans.
