I count Ask The Headhunter as the very best and most useful subscription I have.
-- Jim Haake

The great news about your recommendations is that they work. The good news for those of us who use them is that few people are really willing to implement what you recommend, giving those of us who do an edge.
-- Ray Stoddard

Nick... what can I do but join the teeming throngs of folks chanting your praises? No-BS, tell-it-like-it-is folks like you are too damned rare. I'm emailing you to say "thanks". You are my new hero.
-- Mary Lee Chapman

I just want to tell you how much I enjoy your newsletter and website. Even when I'm not in the job market, I enjoy your views and perspective. Thank you for giving those in the job market an honest, insider's view of what is going on these days. Keep up the great job you're doing. 
-- Dave Shortley

My brother e-mailed me your column after a year of under-employment and several months of unemployment... Nick, things were getting pretty scary at my house - lots of stress, and the kids were getting nervous. You and your advice turned all that around. Thank you, thank you, and may God bless you.
-- Wells Hann

I decided to use your advice on interviews for the latest round of hiring we did. So I sent out a pre-interview packet to the selected candidates with a pointer to your site (the page on "do the job to get hired"). The candidate we hired not only showed he could do the job, he also used the background material to show he could do more than the job. I'm very pleased with the results.

Just a note to let you know that your job seeking advice is pure gold. Nice to see somebody cut through the morass with intelligence.
-- Gary Deines

I am in China while the interviewer is in Britain. Thanks to your inspiration, I felt I had the tools to secure the job before the telephone interview even started. I believe the advice given on Ask The Headhunter was instrumental in me receiving the job offer I had today. Thanks very much for helping me start a promising new chapter in my life!
-- Jennifer Thompson

You're an inspiration, Nick. I just finished the salary article, and can't get enough of your empowering articles. You can bet I'll be a lot smarter when I interview for my next job, and I'll be a lot happier when I get it. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
-- Glenn Allen

I've been in HR for most of my career: 20+ years. Your audience should be aware that your ideas are right on the money!
-- Sonya Rolls

I just wanted to say thanks for your ATH newsletters. I find the information contained in them very refreshing and useful. I put your advice to use when trying to advance my career with my current employer. I believe your tips helped give an edge over the other candidates when I pursued a promotion opportunity. Thanks and keep the advice coming!
-- Bob Lindblom

It took me only three months to land my dream job. I'm 100% positive it was because I followed your Ask The Headhunter advice and "did the job" in the interview. That simple maneuver set me apart from all the others vying for the job. Thank you, Nick. Being a member of this community has literally changed my life.
-- Elizabeth Weintraub

I've been following Ask The Headhunter since 1997. You are facilitating deep change in many souls out here - you are not merely "giving good advice". You are articulating what many of us have not been able to say. Godspeed, Mr. Headhunter.
-- Rick Manning

I like your no-nonsense approach to the search-related topics you tackle. You are not afraid to go against the grain and shake things up with a dose of reality and responsibility. I LIKE IT! 
-- Kristie Derkos

I am a retired USAF officer who just got furloughed out of four years with Northwest Airlines. I feel like I have just cut through a thunderstorm and found smooth air and bright sunshine on the other side. Thanks! 
-- Jack Elliott

I've read many of your articles and they hit home every time. I'm constantly spreading your wisdom to my friends who complain about their job searching techniques. Keep up the common sense approach!
-- Nigel Moritz

This is like reading a high-priced consultant's report to discover the "BFO" (blinding flash of the obvious). A lot of what you write makes absolute sense. It's intuitive (dare I say innate) and yet so many of us continue to follow traditional HR dogma when searching for work. Shame.
-- Bill Hiltz

I want you to know that in the piles of info email that I receive, yours is the ONLY one that I consistently read. Your advice is always right on the money. Thanks!
-- Dianne Sedlar

I read your columns and have bought your book (and read it several times). It sits on my desk to refer to. It changed the way I look at job hunting 180 degrees! I recommend it to everyone who has need of it (and most have bought it!). If you do a sequel, I will buy that one, too.
-- Bill Cartwright

Thanks again, Nick, for pointing me in the direction of my own sense of value. The employment scene didn't change -- I did. I owe you big.
-- Laurel Hastings

I've been reading your stuff for years and wanted to drop you a line to thank you for the Special Edition about "Resume Trafficking: The job-seeker's nightmare." I have not had to search for a job in three years, but having this kind of information further reinforces my belief that the blind shotgun approach to job hunting through job sites is a huge waste of time - and now it turns out it could also be dangerous. Keep publishing your newsletter and we'll keep reading it. You do make a difference!
-- Michael Galo

Thank you, Nick. Not everyone can understand the idea of doing the job, but the ones that do are great. Those are the people I want to work for. Your book helped me to sell myself that way.
-- John R. Grace

I'm a headhunter for the medical and biotech industries, and I require that my candidates read your book prior to interviewing. It really helps with the preparation phase. Thanks for providing me with a great tool that helps my candidates win offers.
-- Laura Hopeman

This may be the finest piece of career advice I have ever received. It is a step-by-step guide to getting the job I want. I'll let you know when I am successful!
-- Carole A. Taylor

You are a breath of fresh air in a room filled with carbon monoxide. Thank you.
-- Katherine E. Hoyt

One of my colleagues and I receive your newsletter and we both feel that your e-mail is one of the most worthwhile pieces of information we get. Both of us talk so much about your articles at meetings we have with our Chairman that he now also subscribes to Ask the Headhunter. Please keep up the good flow of advice.
-- Ruth Breen

It's good to see some managers are finally catching on to The Working Interview™. It has changed the way I interview candidates. One day, I just decided to apply your stuff to the entry-level people instead of just the management team. After all, leadership is necessary at all levels.
-- Rick Manning
