Rick Gillis: REALLY Useful Job Search Tactics by Rick Gillis is a contemporary, real world, "street credible" handbook on job search techniques. It has been written to help today's job seekers (whether currently employed or not) navigate the brave new world of human resource software and management tools as well as, and perhaps most importantly, how to create The Superior Resume(TM) (this is not your old college resume). Rick Gillis: REALLY Useful Job Search Tactics will teach you how to internalize the Rick Gillis mantra: "Show me, as an employer, how you are going to Make Me Money or Save Me Money(TM) and I will assure you of getting the job you want." The issues raised and addressed by Rick Gillis: REALLY Useful Job Search Tactics include age-discrimination and the mature job seeker, the entry-level job seeker, the stay-at-home Mom (we call her The Professional Mom), how to really network, getting the hiring manager on the phone and, the single most important component of the book: How to make yourself, your resume and your interview so compelling that your recruiter will be afraid to let you leave the office for fear that you will end up with the competition! Rick Gillis: REALLY Useful Job Search Tactics will guide you step by step through the amazing process of embedding keywords and phrases in your resume that will guide it the top of the pile--so that a real person will actually see it!
