GET HIRED! Grow. Lead. Live. covers four career stages: getting a job, getting promoted, moving into management and becoming a leader. Eastman knows what he is talking about. He was in business for nearly 30 years, working at Ford and Boeing, McCaw Communications and Boise Cascade. He learned in each place, so his examples ring true. In the section on getting a job, for example, he covers how to design your ideal job, target an industry and companies, make contacts, differentiate yourself, handle an interview and persist. If all that fails, Eastman tells you how to think about starting your own company. Once you get in an employer's door, Eastman shows how to climb the ladder, become a leader, and finally how to have a good life. --Nancy Napier, Executive Director of the Centre for Creativity and Innovation, Professor of Strategy and International Business, Boise State University, Idaho Statesman, Three books on tactics for landing a job, building a life.
