Book Details

Just Tell Me How to Get Hired! is an honest and often humorous conversation between the job seeker, employers, recently hired employees, and the reader's new found recruiter, Jill. This quick read is filled with "cut to the chase" advice. Just as if you were sitting in Jill's office, you'll quickly learn how to get a job faster and easier than going it alone. Real life stories about interviews and hires gone wrong transform this tutorial into a reality show about entering the workforce.



WHAT ARE EMPLOYERS REALLY LOOKING FOR ON A RESUME? Learn to construct a resume that guarantees an interview. WHAT IS YOUR INTERVIEWER'S GOAL? Find out what you should never say on an interview and why. WHAT BEHAVIORS AND PERSONAL STYLES WILL STOP YOU FROM RECEIVING JOB OFFERS? HOW CAN YOUR ABC'S [ATTITUDE, BEHAVIOR, AND CHARACTER] ATTRACT OTHERS AND PROMOTE A "GOOD BOOK" ON YOU IN THE OFFICE? I have been teaching for 38 years and have never found a book that provides EVERYTHING a graduating student (undergrad or grad) needs to know to land that perfect job...never, until now. Jill Shook's "Just Tell Me How to Get Hired!" is that book! My students have read the book and they always react the same way: "WOW!" The book shows them the reality of job hunting, the necessary preparation, selecting target companies, getting company information, what really matters in the interview and so much more. Just Tell Me How to Get Hired! will become THE book that every graduating student must follow. So, you want a job? Read the book!"Peter LaPlaca, Ph.D., Professor of Management and Marketing Barney School of Business University of Hartford
