Tools to use when looking for a job

Anyone who’s trying to find a job in the current market needs help in their search. Résumés, cover letters, newspaper want ads, online job boards, networking sites are just a few of the tools that can help jobseekers land a position.

So when a successful executive recruiter offers his help for free, it might be a good idea to take advantage of it. Skip Freeman is president of the HTW (Hire to Win) Group and author of “Headhunter Hiring Secrets: The Rules of the Hiring Game Have Changed Forever!” He’s offering a free, full-color, 347-page eBook edition of his ‘Headhunter’ volume to the first million people who download it from the book Web site.

“That’s something I want to do. It’s also the right thing to do at this point, when unemployment is one of the most serious problems facing us here in the U.S., as well as worldwide,” Freeman said in a press release.

What tools have worked best for you in job searches? Have your job-search strategies changed in this tough career climate? If nothing has worked, what help do you need to find a good job?

Dear John,

Skip Freeman and I (his book editor) genuinely appreciate your taking the time to blog about the FREE eBook edition of “Headhunter” Hiring Secrets: The Rules of the Hiring Game Have Changed . . . Forever! Just one little (nit-picking) comment: the book is actually 347 pages in length, not 354 pages. (I mention this in the interest of “truth in advertising!” LOL)It is a virtual “carbon copy” of the paperback edition, which is 348 pages in length (printed materials must be divisible by 4).

Also, your readers may be interested in knowing that there are “hot links” built in to both the Index and the Table of Contents, for fast, easy access to information within the book.

While this book (or any other, for that matter) will NOT guarantee anyone a job, if one will diligently apply the principles and approaches recommended in the book, he or she will be perceived as “head and shoulders” above competition for the scant few jobs available today.

Again, thanks so much for blogging on our book!

Mike Garee
