by Rick Gillis

Book Image Not Available
Overview
Job search is not about selection, it is about preventing elimination. Throughout "Make Me Money or Save Me Money", Rick Gillis will show you how to navigate the resume pipeline (that is actually an obstacle course designed to knock you out of the running) and emerge at the other end where you will have set yourself up for competing successfully in the high stakes game of employee selection.
Description
From "Make Me Money or Save Me Money! The Real Secret to Finding a Job for New & Recent College Graduates": You begin the resume development process by addressing the incredibly important issue of keywords, those extremely vital and well-placed terms that say you can talk the talk. (The interview is where you will be asked to prove that you can walk the walk.) The second critical task is to create an inventory of your personal best achievements and experiences. This is the “heavy lifting” portion of this process. You will use this inventory to present and sell yourself to the highest bidder (the company that will pay you the most for what you do). Last, you will write a powerful, rich resume—from a journalist’s point of view—that you will be proud to present and that the reader will recognize and treat as a document of substance. If these words ring true to you order this book and find yourself successfully competing with all those other equally talented new graduates. The difference? You will know how the game is really played!
About the author
Rick Gillis likes to tell his audiences that he is an “imposter”—having never worked in the human resources or staffing business. But Rick has been involved in the ‘business of employment’ since 1997 when he was instrumental in introducing the first local employment website to the greater Houston market. Being the “first” was an interesting place to be at that time because so many people were seeking an alternative to the newspaper and the world was curious about this “new-fangled Internet thing.” Rick called on HR and staffing professionals for over 10 years but, perhaps more importantly, in 1998 he was called by the Texas Employment Commission to speak to job seekers. That call cemented his calling (pun intended). Rick immediately recognized the disconnect between job seekers and hiring managers. Thus began Rick’s intensive (and continuous) study of job search. As a result Rick has been involved in or has intimate knowledge of many aspects of the employment business to include resume creation—specifically, his “one-two punch” Pre-Resume™/short-form/long-form resume format, employment advertising, recruiting, pre-employment assessments, networking, social networking (for employment) sites, age-discrimination issues, the human resources function, best practices as they apply to management, diversity, legal issues, staffing companies, web-based applicant-tracking systems and, of course, Internet employment protocols. Rick is not a career coach—he is a job search expert. There is a difference!
