"The Hiring Process: Yesterday versus Today
Years ago it was fairly easy to find a new position. Search firms would call you with a position opening and you could take your time selecting between job offerings. Or, friends contacted you with tips that a company down the road was hiring and needed people with your skills. All that you needed to do was to update your resume from time to time and everything fell into place.
Today we have a different situation: the marketplace is crawling with competition for those jobs. The time to sit back and think that a company will find you is no longer realistic. You need to put together a well-thought-out action plan to seek the job you want.
This book will assist you in setting new goals and evaluating new career options. It will help you manage your job transition and employment campaign in a realistic, systematic, and organized way.
What You Should Know When Looking for a Job in Today’s Marketplace shares effective job search methods and a plan of action that will help anyone recently downsized or anticipating a reduction in work force at their own company to formulate a vision for success, ultimately staying ahead of the competition in the resume pile.
Dr. Richard Wittmeyer relies on his thirty years of experience in human resources, talent acquisition, career and performance management, and strategic organizational development in order to help others productively manage job transition, set new goals, and evaluate career options during an uncertain time in America. Jobseekers and those entering career transitions will learn how to:
• Identify strengths and accomplishments
• Construct and present a resume that sells
• Target a job search
• Develop an elevator speech
• Start networking
• Make a great first impression during an interview, and much more.
Despite today’s challenging times in the job market, there are still success stories happening every day as companies continue to look for talented people. The practical information and concrete examples included in this valuable field manual will help guide others to success by teaching a complete process that helps anyone take control of their employment future."
