Do you have what it takes to get hired in today’s job market? The world of job searching is a vastly different place than it was just ten years ago. Today’s generation of college graduates are dealing with a whole new ball game – a perpetually weak U.S. economy, increased competition from overseas labor, and new technology that has changed the way we find jobs. In this unique guide, Winston Kotzan shares with you strategies for succeeding in today’s job market developed from the perspective of Generation Y. Unlike most other job hunting guides that are written by people on the other side of the table, This is Not Your Father’s Job Market draws on knowledge from successful job hunters who have perfected their strategies by trial and error as a job candidate. Winston, who graduated from business school at the onset of the Great Recession, incorporates the job seeking wisdom obtained through his own job search and those of his peers. The beginning chapters provide guidance on the problems unique to students entering the job market for the first time – such as the dilemma of experience and choosing a decisive career path when so many avenues seemingly lead to a dead end. You will also learn how to perfect the art of job seeking by building an extensive professional network and using it to harvest solid job leads. And of course, the later chapters coach the reader on how to interview by explaining what to expect and demystifying the mixed messages that are sometimes delivered by potential employers. This is Not Your Father’s Job Market is a critical guide for every college student or recent graduate who intends to be successful in finding a job.

Former Wall Street analyst, software developer, and finance professional, Winston Kotzan has been through it all when it comes to finding a job. He graduated from Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business with a finance degree at a time when the financial industry was beginning to fold from the mortgage crisis of 2008. He worked for the investment bank Leerink Swann as an equity research associate in healthcare information technology and then transitioned into the industry by working for Allscripts, a leading vendor of healthcare software systems. Having thrived during the toughest job market in decades, Winston brings to you a series of lessons learned about job hunting by himself and his graduating classmates.
