This is How to Get Your Next Job: An Inside Look at What Employers Really Want

""

"Why didn't you hire the last ten people you interviewed and passed on?" Leading career expert and syndicated columnist Andrea Kay asked numerous employers that single, simple question because of what she felt seemed a glaring disconnect in the business world--millions of educated, qualified people either out of work or unhappily employed, despite an increasing number of companies with job openings they can't seem to fill. How could that be? This Is How to Get Your Next Job is the story of her quest for answers and, more importantly, the surprising conclusions she was led to by these employers frustrated with not being able to fill these positions.

The overwhelmingly common answers she received time after time were not about skills or experience but about how applicants behaved and spoke during the interview. From lack of preparation to pushiness to a subtly defensive attitude, these simple behaviours that prospective employees exhibited before, during, and after interviews ended up nullifying their otherwise-qualified résumé. Now, in this well-researched book based on candid insights from real-life employers, job hunters can learn how to take control of how they come across to the people in charge of giving them the exciting, rewarding opportunities they are seeking. Show them why you're the perfect fit for their job!
