Use Your Head to Get Your Foot in the Door, Job Search Secrets No One Else Will Tell You
by Harvey Mackay.
Harvey Mackay is known mostly for his strategic books on how to be successful in business. However, in this book he takes his strategic approach to success and applies it to the job search. He is one of the ultimate success stories, and has done some incredible things on a huge scale. To give you an idea of the level this guy is on, check out the list of his friends who endorse the book: Larry King, Shaquille O’Neal, and Lou Holtz. He shows you how to present your product (you) well enough to land that big account (a job).
Harvey’s books always have a motivational spin to them, and this is no different. He helps you understand the importance of attitude, and more importantly, he helps you put on the right one. Sales people deal with rejection regularly, and job seekers will get their share of it. He shows you not only how to handle it, but how to take advantage of it. My favorite aspect of this book is the importance Harvey puts on maintaining your network, offering solid strategies to help you do that. I had the privilege of interviewing Mr. Mackay on Job Talk about this book, please enjoy it.
