5 Steps to Rapid Employment – The Job You Want at the Pay You Deserve is a book to help you find employment. You’d think with the number of these I’ve read I’d have no problem finding a new job but it’s easier read than done I guess. The 5 steps covered in this book are Learning how to Ride the Emotional Roller Coaster, Defining Your Goal, Using Value-Based Resumes and Self-Marketing Skills, Creating a Meticulous Action Plan and Taking Action. Let’s hope this book gives me a push in the right direction.
This book is written like the author is coaching you, which is a technique that I like. Each chapter is broken down into smaller points and there is even a summary at the end of each chapter. It is ok to be afraid and uncomfortable. A few of the techniques in this book I have actually already been using in my job search, but hopefully combined with a few others this can help put me in the right direction to moving to a dream job doing something I love at a great salary!
Looking at the job search as more of a campaign than tirelessly posting the same resume over and over all over the internet is the approach that is recommended in this book and I believe this is the approach that I need to be taking. It’s time to re-evaluate how I am searching and how I am putting myself out there!
I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review. I was not otherwise compensated.
