wanted to let you know how much your book and website helped me in my job search.
year ago, I found my dream job and on the advice of your website created a Working Resume™.
I went through the interview process and the decision came down to one other candidate and myself. Because his technical
experience was better, he got the job. I was extremely disappointed, but understood that my technical skills were lacking,
even though I felt I aced every interview in the process and made a good impression.
I kept in
contact with the hiring manager and followed the organization's progress on their website since my first interview. I just
had a feeling I would be working for this company someday -- a comment I shared with the hiring manager at the time.
three months ago I received a call from the hiring manager, wanting to know what I was up to and to see if I still had
interest in the position. It seems that the other individual had great technical skills but did not match the culture of the
company. They remembered the impression I had made previously by "doing the job" and the
hiring manager was told by many of the other managers that they should see if I was available because they felt I was the
right fit the first time.
quickly scheduled an interview for the following week and I was offered the job a few days after that. I am now starting my
fifth week and enjoy my work more than I have in a long time. I really think the Working Resume and your techniques helped
me to be here today.
for sharing your knowledge and time with all of us looking for that "dream job" I don't know if I would have
gotten this job if it wasn't for Ask the Headhunter!!
