5.0 out of 5 stars How You Find A Job Fast (Paperback)

3.0 out of 5 stars Useful and informative
I accepted the review request for How You Find A Job FAST because I thought that this book would make a good help tool. I wasn't wrong with that. At 113 pages long (not counting the contents and other promotional pages), this book is packed with advice, practical tips, and helpful examples. It definitely makes a good "how-to" tool for those going for job interviews...

5.0 out of 5 stars How You Find A Job Fast (Paperback), July 14, 2011
In a tight job market, it is imperative for candidates to differentiate themselves from the competition in a professional way. The L.E.A.P. is a great concept to do exactly that. Employers want to know that a candidate will be able to perform the job duties and contribute to an organization. The L.E.A.P. and other suggestions in the book provide job candidates with specific examples of how to demonstrate their qualifications in the interview process. Don and Ted have created in one book a good refresher on job search skills as well as a source of new ideas on how to stand out in a positive way.

I accepted the review request for How You Find A Job FAST because I thought that this book would make a good help tool. I wasn't wrong with that. At 113 pages long (not counting the contents and other promotional pages), this book is packed with advice, practical tips, and helpful examples. It definitely makes a good "how-to" tool for those going for job interviews.

How You Find A Job FAST tells readers how they can make the best impression and pitch to potential employers. Included in the book is a link to a "secret" website where readers can download the L.E.A.P. form to be used when going for job interviews. I like the way the authors gave examples of the various L.E.A.P. forms in used for different careers. I think that this is helpful as there's nothing better than examples for aid.

I did encounter typos here and there in How You Find A Job FAST. While there were not many of them, some did affect my reading as they made the sentences confusing. The book is one of the most interesting and informative books I've ever read. Yet, I strongly wished that there aren't any typos. Many of them are easy to spot and there would be greater coherency in the book if they weren't there.

In today's economy and high un- employment finding a job is not as easy as it was when you went out and found your first job. The competition is stronger and they are not sitting around waiting to see if they get called for the job. They go to the job and explain why they should be hired, how they will be a benefit to the business, otherwise without me you can't do what needs to be done. I know sounds like one big ego trip doesn't it. What a prospective employee relates in the first 30 to 40 seconds is pertinent to getting the job. As you are interviewing for the job we can put it in this simple matter, the employer is asking you;"Why should we hire you over someone else"?

One should know the correct way to apply for a job right, nice clothes, decent looking , good eye contact among other ways and a good start creating your L.E.A.P(Leading Employee Advantage Profile).With a free form provided that you can download that you can customize to yourself and then set out to write your own L.E.A.P. The course comes with different time frames, for your first week, first month, second month etc, as you take the steps to help you in the job market

Although I am retired and not in the job market, there are some great idea's here in this book for the today job market.. In the bygone years as we like to call them, finding a job was a lot easier than tin today's work force. If you are having a time trying to find a job, disappointed at every turn down you get then grab a copy of this book and create your own Leading Employee Advantage Profile

4.0 out of 5 stars This is a great book for young job seekers., July 8, 2011
This is a great book for young job seekers. Both authors share their extensive experience with the job search process, from both sides. They guide you through the career decisions you need to make to keep your skills current. Then show you how to L.E.A.P. ahead of your competition. They give guidance on proper use of time, team work and marketing. The book shows ways to present your skills as benefits to your new employer. The authors show you how to be unique and differentiate yourself. They show that persistence can get you the job. Also, guidance at interviews is throughly presented. And after you get the job they provide ideas on how you can keep it. The information is well organized and enjoyably presented. I recommend the book to anyone needing a new job.
