For the past few years, I’ve had an opportunity to work with individuals that sit at both sides of the hiring manager’s table – both the hirer and the candidate. The purpose of this text is to take all that I know and help equip job seekers with their own personal HR Department. I want to help you understand different strategies to employ in your search as well as how to respond to the conditions of the market.
Let’s face it. When you are in a job search, you are a statistic. A metric. A dot in the matrix that is calculated, quantified, measured, and filtered without regard for your emotions, feelings, and even your humanity. Recruiting these days is all about finding the best candidate in the shortest amount of time while going through tons and tons of applicants. This book will serve as a tool to help you understand the way recruiting works and use that knowledge to your advantage. It’s not about bending yourself to fit a mold but rather understanding the rules so that you maximize your ability to be you and showcase your skills.
