9781401303044: How to Land Your Dream Job: No Resume! And Other Secrets to Get You in the Door

A re-titled, repackaged edition of a modern classic in career-building

With business bestsellers like How to Become CEO, Jeffrey Fox is unsurpassed when it comes to empowering readers to gain the edge on the competition. But before you can run the company, you have to get your foot in the door -- and in How to Land Your Dream Job, a repackaged, re-titled edition of Don't Send a Resume, Fox shows how to do exactly that, with invaluable, often counterintuitive advice like:

-Why resumes don't sell
-Skip the personnel department
-How to research a target company
-Be a fish out of water
-No one cares what you like
-Ask to do a demonstration
-Don't talk in an interview
-"I" is a bad word.

From AudioFile:

The breadth of this authors common sense and creativity is impressive. Job hunting is marketing oneself, so think of your written inquiries and interviews as sales calls for which you (1) do your homework and (2) tailor everything about your visit to address your interviewers questions and needs. Foxs suggestions for standing out from the crowd are intuitive but seldom used. A highly useful feature of this lesson is the many scripts and role plays he offers for various interview situations and hiring agendas. The authors voice adds a tone of fatherly encouragement to his clear message. Even with his broad knowledge, he manages to understate the power of his ideas and the usefulness of his invitation.
