Most people will change jobs five to ten times during their careers, and some even more often, depending on their skills and where the economy is headed at the time. Whether you are choosing to leave your employer (due to overwork, politics, bureaucracy, or boredom), or have been asked to leave (due to being fired or laid off), you will probably be looking for work several times during your career.

So, what do you say to get a job you want or need? Many experts tell you to ask for what you want; to stand up tall, and go for it. But what's missing from their advice most of the time are the actual words to use.

In This Book You Will Learn:

  • What to say to get a job.
  • The specific words employers want to hear from you.
  • How to brand yourself and explain your job history creatively.
  • How to craft a résumé and cover letter that gets you interviews.
  • How to get inspired and motivated so you stay on track and focused.

    You will discover quick, no-nonsense techniques that will arm you with what you need to say and do so you can walk into any employer's office and get the job you really want.
