This frequent No 1 Amazon Best Seller Career Guide is required reading at the University of Central Florida (2nd largest University in the USA). It is used in The College of Business Administration and the Department of Psychology for their Professionalism and Career Readiness classes for over 10,000 students. It shows you how to;- Identify in demand jobs you will enjoy with people you like- Target those jobs with employers & industries in which you feel proud to belong- Build your competitive advantage to meet the specific needs of those employers- Make your relevance stand out on social media, a resume and in an interview- Trigger a job offer & negotiate for more- Succeed in the job and get promoted The challenge - Many college students, recent graduates and even people in their late twenties & early thirties do not know what they really want to do. Without an exciting job in your sights you won't have the motivation, energy & drive to make enough effort to prepare your unique relevance to compete well in a selection process - or succeed in the job later. Your degree by itself will not be enough to make you a job winning candidate.  According to sources such NACE, Accenture, and Gallup this is a common problem. Over 80% of students graduate with no job lined up and 49% will take longer than 2 years to land a career job.  Over 20% lose their first job or quit in less than 6 months. Over 70% of all employees languish for long periods feeling unengaged, under perform as a result, & are unlikely to get promoted. This is why employers specifically look for your drive and the actions you took to develop yourself to meet their needs. This guide shows you the interpersonal skills, including the right questions to get the information you need, so you can decide what you want to do, where, & how to get selected. It will teach you how to communicate your value so that you stand out from the crowd and trigger a "This Is Who We Want!" reaction.  Most books stop at getting the job. However, statistics show that succeeding in the job is just as hard as landing it.  This "two in one" book provides a continuous process called the job cycle that ensures you not only land the job of your dreams but succeed in it. It covers how to understand and exceed expectations so that you succeed in the job from the day you join & soon get promoted. You can revisit and repeat this process to secure your first career job and every promotion thereafter. It covers the promotion strategies and leadership skills that will take you all the way to the top.  Note: Everything you learn in this book about being selected and aligning to your leaders can and should be applied to selecting, managing and leading your own team. SUMMARY  FIRST - HOW TO GET A JOB YOU ENJOY Learn how to;- Build the interpersonal skills to make people like and trust you- Network to get information, introductions & find jobs & promotion opportunities- Identify the top priority responsibilities and challenges in any job opportunity- Develop the top ten skills and attitudes those employers specifically search for- Build relevant profiles on social media such as LinkedIn using "key words"- Write targeted high impact resumes that will get you an interview- Connect with the interviewer and avoid a personality clash- Prepare for and answer critical questions to succeed in the interview- Prompt them to make you an offer and negotiate a better one         SECOND - HOW TO SUCCEED IN A JOB AND GET PROMOTED       - What you must do on the day you join- Understand an employer's expectations from you & how to outperform them- What to do if a job is not going well- Develop mentors and raving references you can count on your entire career- Learn a process to consistently solve problems & complete difficult tasks- Continue to develop your communication skills- Build management and leadership skills & learn how and when to apply them- Three strategies for getting promoted you must have at all times
