A job search is almost inevitable somewhere along our professional path. It is all at once an exciting, stressful, emotional and hopefully rewarding process, but exactly that … a process. Whether caught in a seemingly endless pursuit of a new job, looking to make a career change, trying to land a first job, or hadn’t even thought about a new opportunity until now, LANDED! Proven Job Search Strategies for Today’s Professional (Serviam Press, ISBN: 1489557946, $13.99) offers solutions to make job search goals a reality.
Job search and recruiting authority, Randy Hain, offers proven strategies from his experience and those of other field experts answering the important questions professionals have when making a transition in their career. Section headings in
LANDED! include the self-assessment process to understand what you really want out of a job and career; building your support network and intentional relationships; the practicalities of resumes, interviews and negotiating; and other considerations such as aging (mature job seekers), entrepreneurship and recruiters.
An important underlying message of LANDED! is to be prepared for a job search before you ever need to conduct one. “The keys are to maintain strong networks, stay abreast of current trends and technology, continually work on building your personal brand, and be prepared for the seemingly fateful pink slip I hope you never receive,” writes Hain.
In this thorough account of the job search process, Hain reveals the wealth of knowledge he has gleaned from working with job seekers, in all levels of experience, who are looking to take the next step in their career. He levels with readers, which makes this such a useful and effective guide.
Brandon Smith, founder of The Workplace Therapist, shares this in the Foreword of LANDED!: “Having a clear plan in place is the antidote and prescription to turning unexpected disappointment into profound opportunity. And yet, there are very few resources that truly help address the issue of both planning for and landing the next job, until now. What Randy Hain has so wonderfully brought to the working world is a perfect prescription for how to take control of one’s career and life.”
As Hain has over 25 years of experience in recruiting and interviewing, he knows what it takes for a candidate to land their dream job. He is currently the president and founder of Serviam Access (coaching/consulting firm) and a partner in national recruiting firm, Bell Oaks Executive Search. Prior to that, he served as the head of recruiting for a billion-dollar restaurant company.
LANDED! Proven Job Search Strategies for Today’s Professional is available on Amazon.com.
