"As a recruiter, I can say, firsthand, that 97% of all candidates look for their next job by throwing darts at the dartboard…and waiting…and hoping. But hope is not a strategy. Finding your best next job requires a strategy, i.e., a process. But it’s one few people know or understand.
And the reality is, no one knows the job hunting process better than a great recruiter. Why? A great recruiter fills 5 to 7 jobs a month. You, on the other hand, are only going to look for a job maybe 5 to 7 times in your lifetime.
A great recruiter walks a candidate through the process and helps them land their next best job. But what if you don’t have a great recruiter by your side? That’s where Diary of a Successful Job Hunter comes in.
Greg Quirk’s journey of finding his next job after a layoff. Finding a new job is hard and emotionally grueling work. It drains you, it saps your confidence, and often, it depresses you. BUT, when you land the right job at the right salary, it’s the best feeling in the world.
Greg transforms the job-hunting process into one that is easily understood. As he takes you through his journey, he discusses the mistakes he made along the way, describes the lessons learned, and gives you immediate practical advice to use in your job search. In the end, you can close the book (only for a brief moment) and dream; dream of your perfect job. Because now you have a proven process that you can apply.
Most people only look for results. However, results come when you have a process that works, and you work that process. This is what Greg brings to you."
"I've been following David Perry for YEARS for his intense understanding of what it takes to get hired. This book is great for anyone who is looking for an opportunity right now as it gets right down to the BRASS TACKS of job hunting. No fluff, just a true account of a serious job seeker navigating the nuances of finding the next opportunity while applying David's direction.
The value this book provides and its insider look from a job seeker perspective is critical in today's job climate and will continue to be valuable to anyone who is looking to 'cover ALL bases' in their search."
