Paul Rega is president of a retained executive search firm he founded in 1985 and a professional recruiter with over twenty-eight years of job hunting and career planning experience. His provocative new book strikes a nerve with millions of displaced workers and goes well beyond the principles of job hunting. Paul introduces a revolutionary new concept in career management and personal development called "Intuitive Personal Assessment." He takes his readers on a powerful journey as he tells a gripping story about his own career and the challenges faced as an executive recruiter, often fraught with personal tragedy. This is a must read for anyone who is looking for a new job or wants to change careers in the worst economy since the Great Depression.
The author shares his vast knowledge of career planning and the inner workings of the job search process, citing hundreds of proven and effective job search techniques. He explains how to market your background to a targeted audience, interviewing skills and techniques, network building strategies, how to utilize personal and business contacts, effective use of social media, including LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter, insider tips on working with headhunters, salary and benefits negotiation, how to write a resume, cover and follow-up letters, how to start and succeed in your own business and much more.
In a message to his readers, Paul believes that despite the many challenges faced by those suffering as a result of the weak job market, change in one's life can be positive. He explains that, "Change throughout your life is inevitable, and as your life changes so often does your career." His book is an effective guide that will provide you with the necessary tools, skills and inside knowledge from a professional recruiter to help you navigate through difficult economic times and find a new job or change careers.
"A rare insider's look into how a headhunter thinks as it relates to career planning and the job search process. If you need a job or want to change careers in this dismal economy and want the answers to what companies are really looking for, then read this book."
A Powerful Account of Triumph Over Adversity
"Over the years I have read countless "how to books," but Paul Rega's new job search book was from the beginning much different. It was a powerful, engaging read where the author incorporates many of his personal career stories and insight about the job search process as an executive headhunter. This is by far the best job search book and career planning guide on the market. Mr. Rega's many years of experience as an executive recruiter was evident throughout the book. He shares his extensive knowledge of the job search process with many examples and advice that can only be gained from an expert in his field. His book gave me the insight and courage I needed to finally land a job in this difficult economy. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is serious about wanting to find a new job or change careers."
