More About the Author

I've been writing about dreamers, idealists and rascals since 1981. Look for my articles and essays these days at Forbes magazine, forbes.com, quora.com and the LinkedIn/Influencers program. Other writing homes over the years have included The Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg View and Fast Company magazine. I've also launched a travel blog, written five books and spun out several hundred bedtime stories for our kids.

In 1997, I shared in the Pulitzer Prize for National Reporting.

I grew up on the South Side of Chicago. As an adult, I spent time in New York City, London, Cambridge MA and Washington DC before settling in northern California. I'm a slow but stubborn hiker. Adventures over the years have included trekking in Nepal, Peru and New Zealand, as well as making it to the top of Mt. Whitney, Mt. Fuji and Cerro Chirripo. Some of my favorite writers include Thomas Boswell for sports; William Manchester for biographies; Caroline Baum for financial commentary and Michael Craig for poker.

Format: Kindle Edition
As someone with an eccentric, arts-heavy resume, this book is a godsend. I had come to think my successful past as a performer and then writer and professor was a liability. But Anders demonstrates practical techniques to find the employers who value my skill set, and also how to restructure my resume, cover letter and interview to set yourself apart from the cookie-cutter applicants.

I often found I was more than qualified to fill several job openings at a company at any given time, even when the roles did't seem related in the least bit. This was a function of my broad and varied experience and believe it or not this worked against me - this book doesn't solve that problem, but will at least give you a boost of confidence and some stories to tell when making your case and explaining your apparent "job-hopping"...
