If you are looking for a job today, or if you are in between job searches (i.e., everyone), you need this book!
Rick writes exactly like he talks and his passion for helping job seekers is real. Easy to read, his book is filled with extremely powerful and practical information. As a success coach and job ministry leader, I have recommended Rick's Accomplishment Worksheet and resume format to hundreds of job seekers. Those who have implemented his techniques have achieved great results because they speak to what a potential employer is truly interested in - how you are going to help him/her "make money or save money". And if you've gotten discouraged in your search, the Worksheet alone will do wonders to lift your spirits.
Rick has combined his background in sales, his knowledge of the inner workings of internet job boards and input from numerous HR professionals to give you tools that can put you way ahead of your competitors in the job market. I have not met a person yet who did not thank me for recommending "The Real Secret to Finding a Job?".

There are probably dozens of books on job search written every day these days. Most are personal testimonials about "how I did it" with very little meaningful substance from which a job seeker can build a plan. Rick's ideas are fresh, relevant, AND effective. When I first heard Rick speak two years ago, I went straight back to my office and got busy with his tips and tricks. Within days I had a calendar full of job interviews; something I had been struggling to do weeks and months before learning this material. Since then, I have become a huge fan and advocate for Rick's teachings. Don't miss this. Get it now and make things happen.

I had the great pleasure of meeting Rick Gillis and attending few of his seminars - As always in his book (The Real Secret To Finding A Job? Make Me Money or Save Me Money!) Rick is insightful, motivational and full of powerful information in a simple and logical way. I highly recommend the book for any one between jobs, between search or just wanting to get promoted in his/her company - It is a must
Rick I would like to thank you for another great book to help everyone

The first edition of this book was extremely useful to me in my job search and career, and this updated edition is packed with even more valuable information. Applying for jobs that aren't even available to the public yet, a top notch resume that gets you pushed to the top of the pile, and the power of networking just to start. It's all here. I can't speak highly enough of Rick's books or his speaking presentation.

My title sums it up! It's great to have the prospective of the employer, HR, & how the job search looks/works from the other side of the table.
And the other thing is the advice is practical for all audiences. You can read the chapter that applies to you & start applying the examples that same day!
Great guy & friend, I feel privileged to know you Rick! May God continue to bless you!
