Job hunting advice that will get you noticed, appreciated
and hired by the right employer.

There’s no question that looking for work can be daunting. But what’s most likely holding you back from getting that much-desired job offer may not be a matter of your skills or experience, but how you seem to potential employers.

When I ask employers why they didn’t hire the last ten people they interviewed, employers revealed that it was behaviors people exhibited before, during, and after interviews -- that led them to say, “No.” Simply put, they concluded: If you act like this now, you'll act like this on the job.

Based on candid insights from real-life employers, this book will help you influence the people in charge of hiring. You’ll learn how to make a positive and genuine impression, demonstrate what type of employee you’ll be, and remove all doubt that you’ll be that elusive “good fit” for the company.

Featuring a list of “15 Things You Should Never Do” and "15 Things You Should Never Talk About or Say," my book reveals what you may be doing or saying that could be getting in the way of your being hired. Whether you're right out of school or a seasoned professional, this book will give you the strategies you need to get noticed, appreciated and hired by the right employer.

What Readers Say

    About This Is How To Get
    Your Next Job:

  • "I was very impressed with the information in your latest book, 'This is How to Get Your Next Job.' As a currently unemployed person, I've read many, many books on interview techniques, how to market yourself, etc. I found your idea that people hire potential employees based on how they 'seem' a new idea that I hadn't considered before. Thanks again for all the tips, Andrea!"
    --Elizabeth, Lebanon, Pennsylvania
  • "Don't be misled by the title "This is How to Get Your Next Job," because it's more than that. It delivers on that title, with a refreshingly optimistic and intensely practical guide to getting employed, even in THESE tough times. Then it adds a bonus: Kay's guide to KEEPING that job and building on it. I read the book with my daughter - fresh out of college - in mind. I'll make sure she gets a copy; then I'll make sure she GETS it. But I found myself making mental notes about my own career, and seeing ways to recalculate the course. Kay's style is humane, conversational, and jargon-free. She's hired!"
    --G. L. Rothman
  • "…in this helpful book, she shows you what to do to put yourself front-and-center in an employer's mind and his resume pile…Because it's filled with dozens of illustrative anecdotes from employers willing to share their experiences, this book is really quite entertaining. I spent lots of time being amazed that people really do the kinds of things Kay mentions, and laughing. These cautionary tales fit well in this book and nicely prove her 'tell and show' advice. This book is great for new grads, the newly unemployed, new career searchers and anybody who needs a job soon. If that's you, then 'This Is How To Get Your Next Job' will help, no doubt."

Thanks to the skills I learned, I absolutely blew away the competition and was offered the position in less than 24 hours.
