This Is How to Get Your Next Job: An Inside Look at What Employers Really Want | [Andrea Kay]

This Is How to Get Your Next Job: An Inside Look at What Employers Really Want

Even in a bad economy, companies have job openings they can't fill. Considering the millions of people who are out of work or unhappily employed, how can that be? What are job seekers doing to turn off employers? And what is it that employers want but aren't finding? Leading career expert and syndicated columnist Andrea Kay asked employers one simple question: Why didn't you hire the last 10 people you interviewed? What it came down to, every time, wasn't a matter of skills or experience, but how applicants seemed based on what they said or did.

Publisher's Summary

Even in a bad economy, companies have job openings they can't fill. Considering the millions of people who are out of work or unhappily employed, how can that be? What are job seekers doing to turn off employers? And what is it that employers want but aren't finding? Leading career expert and syndicated columnist Andrea Kay asked employers one simple question: Why didn't you hire the last 10 people you interviewed? What it came down to, every time, wasn't a matter of skills or experience, but how applicants seemed based on what they said or did. From lack of preparation, to pushiness, to a subtly defensive attitude, it's the simple behaviors prospective employees exhibit before, during, and after interviews that stand between them and job offers.

Based on candid insights from real-life employers, and featuring a foreword by Richard Nelson Bolles, best-selling author of What Color Is Your Parachute?, this audiobook helps job hunters take control of how they come across to the people in charge of hiring. From "20 Things You Should Never Do" to a "Would You Hire You?" test, This Is How to Get Your Next Job helps listeners show hiring managers who they are and why they're the perfect fit for the job they seek.

    Story
    "This book should have been titled "No Duh""
    What would have made This Is How to Get Your Next Job better?

    Less focus on mistakes job seekers make and more on getting in front of decision-makers who actually purchase the labor--not HR departments.


    Has This Is How to Get Your Next Job turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Yes. These type of books seem to be stuck in the pre-2008 mindset of interview skills and not networking and talking to the "right people" in regards to getting your next job.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The narration was fine.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from This Is How to Get Your Next Job?

    NA
