“Andrea has constructed a thoughtful, effective series of strategies that will benefit every job hunter who reads this book. I think this kind of depth was always needed on the subject of the job interview, but now more so than ever, in today’s tough economy. This book is a gift. So, buy it. Read it. Use it. Please.”

— From the book’s foreword by Richard N. Bolles, author of What Color Is Your Parachute?

There’s no question that looking for work can be daunting. But what’s most likely hold­ing you back from getting that much-desired job offer isn’t a matter of your skills or experience, but how potential employers see you.

When asked by leading career expert Andrea Kay why they didn’t hire the last ten people they interviewed, employers revealed that it was the behaviors people exhibited before, during, and after interviews—from lack of preparation, to pushiness, to a subtly defensive attitude—that led them to say “No.” Simply put, they concluded: If you act like this now, you’ll act like this on the job.

Based on candid insights from real-life employers, This Is How to Get Your Next Job helps you influence the people in charge of hiring. You’ll learn how to make a positive and genuine impression, demonstrate what type of employee you’ll be, and remove all doubt that you’ll be that elusive “good fit” for the company.

Featuring a list of “15 Things You Should Never Do” and a “Would You Hire You?” test, this book reveals what you may be doing or saying that could be getting in the way of your being hired . . . and gives you the strategies you need to show employers who you really are.
