Praise for the CAREER & JOB DEVELOPMENT series
   
"An absolute must read series for anyone stuck in a rut or out of work. These are truly wonderful and inspirational books that combine excellent professional advice with a lifetime of entrepreneurial and professional experience." --JJ Collins
   
"I had just lost my job of 32 years. I was desperate and didn't know what to do, where to go, or what to focus on. Someone suggested that I read Paul's book and through his unique way of presenting the job search process, I was able to regain my composure, to remeasure my focus, and to reduce my sense of desperation. --Eric Dawson
   
"....written by someone who has walked the walk. It is refreshing to read a book by someone who has experienced the same pain as its audience." --Arleen Bradley, Career Coaching
   
"This book offers a way to orient oneself, a way to begin. And beginning is two-thirds of the battle." --Clahain
   
"....more than just a run-down of job search bromides. It introduces you to all sorts of ingenious tips and tricks to get an interview, excel in it, and finally land the job." --JHolmesFK
   
DOWNLOAD THIS BESTSELLING CAREER BOOK by Paul Rega, nationally recognized Executive Recruiter, with over thirty years of job hunting and career planning experience. The book rocketed to #1 in Job Hunting, Careers, and Resumes and was ranked in the Top 10 overall on Amazon at #9. This is a must read for anyone who is looking for a new job or wants to change careers in the worst economy since the Great Depression.
   
Paul Rega is president of a retained executive search firm he founded in 1985. His provocative new book strikes a nerve with millions of displaced workers and goes well beyond the principles of job hunting. He introduces a revolutionary new concept in career management and personal development called Intuitive Personal Assessment (IPA). Paul takes his readers on a powerful journey as he tells a gripping story about his own career and the unique challenges he's faced as an executive recruiter.
   
The author shares his vast knowledge of career planning and the inner workings of the job search process, citing hundreds of proven and effective job search techniques. He explains how to market your background to a targeted audience, interviewing skills and techniques, network building strategies, how to utilize personal and business contacts, effective use of social media, including LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter, insider tips on working with recruiters, salary and benefits negotiation, how to write a resume, cover and follow-up letters, how to start and succeed in your own business and much more.
    
Despite the many challenges faced by those suffering as a result of the weak job market, Paul believes that change in one's life can be positive. He explains that, "Change throughout your life is inevitable, and as your life changes so often does your career." His book is an effective guide that will provide you with the necessary tools, skills and inside knowledge from a professional recruiter to help you navigate through difficult economic times and find a new job or change careers.

Editorial Reviews

Review

"This amazingly, informative manual takes you through a concise step-by-step procedure to first realize and assess your own values and self-worth. The author uses his personal experiences in an anecdotal manner to convey situations that may occur, whether you're pursuing a career in your chosen field of study, looking to be promoted in your current job, or just looking for something brand new. The book offers helpful hints in resume' writing, interview do's & don'ts, and is "chock-full" of helpful websites to connect and guide you through your job-finding quest. I highly recommend this book to anyone, whether you're job searching or not; it full of common sense advice that can simply enrich your life." --Pat Potilechio 
   
"I must thank my friend for sending me in the direction of this book. It's written by someone who has gone through unemployment and shares how not to just get through it, but thrive. It includes all areas of a job search, as well as how to find the right balance between spiritual, family, health, knowledge, relationships, financial and career. It's personal, practical, poignant and very informative on how to get started in finding your dream career path, and not just another job." --Mary K. Hougaard
    
"Having been unemployed for 6 months, I decided to give this book a try. From the moment I started reading it, I knew this wasn't going to be your typical "Finding A Job 101" book which to be honest, I thought it would be. From the personal trials, tragedies and successes of the author, to the know-hows of communication and follow up after an interview, this book truly helps you understand your journey in life, know where you have come from, where you are now and where you want to be." --Melanie Ouellette

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Place to Start Your Job Search April 7, 2013
By clahain
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book fell into our laps at a time when my husband had been blindsided by a chronic illness that ended his long-term career in commercial driving. It was scary enough contemplating such a change at 45 years old, then, before the ink had dried on his updated resume, he was diagnosed with cancer. The treatment has been long and hard, but it's nearing its end. While my husband can look forward to a full recovery, he now has to face his interrupted job search at a point when his stamina is iffy and his self-confidence bruised. Paul Rega's book offers a clear, user-friendly approach to looking for work in tough economic times and difficult personal circumstances. So much of who we are is wrapped up in what we do for a living. Perhaps the most difficult part of unemployment is how it can strip away our identity. This book doesn't just address the mechanics of a job search. Common sense tells a job hunter to target specific companies, clean up his resume, show up to the interview on time, etc. What is more difficult is generating the gumption to put yourself out there, to take a risk when all you want to do is hide in a corner. Through his professional advice and personal stories, Paul Rega looks at the reader as a whole person with needs, desires and fears that can't help but impact his or her job search. This book offers a way to orient oneself, a way to begin. And beginning is two-thirds of the battle.

Note on the reviewer: I obtained Paul Rega's book free as a promotional download on a social networking site. The offer showed up a week or so after my husband had to leave his job, but the cancer diagnosis that followed caused many months to pass before we actually read the book. While I am a writer and an editor, I do not "trade" reviews, and I do not review books that I have not read. My opinions--good or bad--are my own.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Unique and Inspirational Career Guide May 5, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a unique career and job search guide written by someone who has been there, done it and is eminently qualified to share it. Having started two businesses whilst still a student (the proceeds of which paid for his last year at college!) Paul Rega went on to own his own executive search business by the age of 28 and now has nearly three decades of experience behind him in the recruitment industry. His professional knowledge of what it is that employers are looking for is backed up in this book by his personal experience as both an employer and an employee. Anyone can find out how to write a resume by searching on the internet. What this book gives you is hands-on advice on each step of your job search - how to discover the best career path for you based on your personal qualities and aspirations; how to approach employers; how to conduct negotiations and how to prepare for an interview. Reading this book is like having one-to-one career counselling (but a lot less expensive!). There are morale boosting tips and references to the author's own career path and the challenges, pitfalls and personal tragedies that he had to overcome along the way. I felt utterly inspired and ready to start my own business by the time I reached the end of the book. Highly recommended.

Format:Kindle Edition
I was never the worst interviewer in the world and, for my age, I had a pretty impressive resume. That being said, I would send out hundreds or resumes and still only get a response maybe 30% of the time. In this economy, no matter how impressive I was, I knew that I was going up against 40 or 50 other highly qualified applicants and I would never get the job that I was applying for unless I did something different. I was dissatisfied and stuck in a job that, while not bad, was not where I wanted to be professionally.

By chance, "How To Find A Job: When There Are No Jobs" was suggested to me and I decided to purchase it for my Kindle. I did not have much hope for the product. I had ready books like this before and they all boiled down to the same bromides. I had a great deal of respect for the person who suggested the book, though, so I decided to give it a shot.

Wow. Was ever this worth it. The book was more than just a run down of job search bromides. It introduces you to all sorts ingenious tips and tricks to get and interview, excel in it, and finally land the job. In order to ground these tips, the book then serves as a loose autobiography detailing the author's own life story. I used to think that I was pretty good at my job search, but I realized that I was nowhere near passible. I may have been qualified, but I did not present myself in the way that I needed to in order to get the required attention.

I do not want to spoil the secrets and tips in the book, so I will not go into specifics, but I can say that once I found a job that I was perfectly qualified for at a company that I was excited to be a part of, I was able to secure an interview within 5 hours of my resume submission.

5.0 out of 5 stars Moving forward and never looking back June 13, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
If you are looking for a job and need inspiration then this book has everything you need. This book will motivate, focus and guide you in advancing your career.

The author has been there and shares with you all his knowledge in a way that a lot of other 'How to' books don't. Almost like he is speaking directly to you, telling you how it is through his own life/career experiences.

If Paul Rega has taught me anything - it is to move forward and never look back - you should never let fear of the unknown stop you from starting and ultimately succeeding in your chosen career path. Learn to trust your intuition and allow yourself to move towards your dream whatever your chosen career path may be. I believe I can do what I always wanted to now. Thank you
