Yes, You CAN Get THAT Job!
In today’s competitive job market fueled by rapidly increasing unemployment, job hunting is a challenge for everyone. But for new and recent college graduates looking to get off the couch and onto the payroll, the task is even more daunting. Now, career transition management consultant Joanne Meehl, aka The Job Search Queen and The Resume Queen, has written a unique combination how-to manual and thesaurus to help the newly graduated become the newly employed.
Yes, You Can Get That Job! is an easy-to-use unique resource to help students find the most effective words to communicate their value to prospective employers. From A (“ability, accelerate, accurate, achieve, acquire”) to W (“weigh, widen, win, withdraw, withstand, work, write”), this little book is designed to not only take the stress out of resume writing, but change the way one communicates about oneself.
Packed with practical tips on everything from making a professional sounding voice message to how to use and expand one’s personal network (online and off), Yes, You Can Get That Job! helps new job seekers develop the ability to “sell themselves” more effectively during every stage of the process.
From the first cover letter to the final interview, Yes, You Can Get That Job! provides strategies and tips to enhance presentation skills and build self-confidence, helping new graduates bridge the connection between what they’ve accomplished in their own studies, internships and part-time or summer jobs and what the hiring manger is looking for.
