Millionaire real estate investor Alan Corey reinvents himself as a career man after having to go on a job hunt for the first time in 10 years at the worst possible time: during a historic economic depression. As unemployment rates sky rocket, Alan begins his subversive job hunt and details all the loopholes, back doors, and sly techniques it took to go from being hopelessly ignored to being incessantly headhunted. The result: Alan was able to land an entry level $40,000 salary day job and turn it into a $190,000 a year career just 24 months later. The Subversive Job Search details how you can do it too.
