In this fast-paced, high-tech era, job-hopping has become a job in itself and the competition is fierce. To be successful, job seekers need a strategy that makes them stand out. In this revolutionary book, Dr. William Cohen presents the techniques to gain an upper-hand in the market and find not just a good job, but a great one. Turning conventional advice on its head, and following the notion that “rules are made to be broken,” this unique guide lists every important rule of job hunting one must break in order to land a top-notch job. For example, rarely send a resume, always disregard the instructions in want ads, and, by all means, completely bypass the Human Resources department. Job seekers will learn how to: * Get high quality interviews without a resume
* Get simultaneous offers from several companies
* Control and direct interviews
* Use the Internet without posting a resume anywhere
* Negotiate the best offers
* Beat psychological tests

Based on his experience as a corporate executive, college professor, and headhunter, Dr. Cohen provides professional techniques that apply to anyone entering the job market for the first time, or job-hopping very early on in his/her career.
