Description
"Bring a Dead Mouse" represents the summary of the incredibly impactful advice that Charlotte Lee has been sharing with her clients for years. This book will provide you with straightforward, actionable advice about doing a job search in a down market. Make no mistake, a job search in any market presents challenges, but a down market makes it even harder. A little blunt? Yes. Unique? Yes, but that’s the kind of advice Charlotte Lee gives. And it works. Charlotte’s qualifications are evident in the depth and diversity of her career background, which she complements with her expertise and true passion for providing career support to others. The advice and guidance in "Bring a Dead Mouse" is realistic, on target, and motivating. As you read this book, you'll almost be able to hear her voice. And when Charlotte talks, people take action! According to Gallup’s 2013 State of the American Workplace report, 70% of U.S. employees are either “not engaged” or “actively disengaged” at work. And the Harris Interactive Survey showed 55% of working adults are in search of a new profession. If this is you, you need Bring a Dead Mouse! Charlotte Lee is one of those rare human beings who not only knows her subject matter inside and out, but is able to put straightforward, actionable advice on the page. Her wisdom will be of particular interest to those who insist on looking for jobs for which they are uniquely qualified—or put another way, jobs that will allow them to use their talents to resolve important problems for their prospective employers. Attempting to serve that small, vital part of the workforce, Ms. Lee teaches us that a job search is as much about your prospective employer’s needs as it is about your own qualifications.
