[“I struggled for four months and got no interviews. Once I read Job Search Debugged and changed my resume and outreach, I was offered interviews over 50% of the time and finally had three offers. This was the best money I have ever spent on my career.” Jack K. Director New Products.]
Many people simply never acquired excellent job search skills because they rarely looked for a job. And even if they have, those skills may no longer be valid for the way executives get hired today. Those over 50 years old face a different set of challenges and must create the most compelling job search possible.
[“OK, I finished the book. I will be recommending this book to anyone seeking career development advice, regardless of their level of activity on the job market.” DD. Coach]
Job Search Debugged is the resource to overcome job search challenges. The advice comes from people who hire executives or refer candidates to those who do. The information is field-tested over ten years of career coaching and is based on a coaching track record of over 98% of executives reaching their goals for promotion or new jobs well within six months.
[“Job Search Debugged is extremely thorough in content, yet presented in a way that flows very nicely, is easily understandable, and keeps the reader interested in reading further. From the standpoint of it being an excellent reference guide, Rita makes Job Search Debugged that much more valuable to the reader by bulleting the most important points at the end of each section.” PM Marketing Exec]

The $20 you will spend on the book will undoubtedly be well spent, especially given that the recommendations in the book will most likely apply for years to come.” VP]
