This book has got it all. It's your portable outplacement service!!! If you've been affected by this economy (& who hasn't been) this is what you need to plan and make your next move.
There are meaningful examples and exercises to help you focus and direct your energy and efforts to maximize your effectiveness.
Orrin has organized his masterpiece in an easy to navigate manner to help you jump to the area that you want to focus on right now, without having to wade through stories and anecdotes.
This is the one book you need to buy to land your next job!!!

Format: Paperback
Having experienced firsthand the sage advice of Orrin Wood in my own transition from corporate America to business entrepreneur, I applaud the publication of his second book. Recognizing how the landscape for the executive job hunt has changed, Mr. Wood provides important insights into the varied campaigns the successful candidate should undertake in this search. From thinking out of the box in developing your network of contacts, to understanding the power and the limitations of the internet, to setting critical hurdles for yourself - this book will challenge you to discipline and challenge yourself in this journey. This is the seasoned professional's "no holes barred" handbook for negotiating the landscape for the "next chapter". There are immediate and life lessons to be learned from this important book.

I have been through job transition three times. Orrin Wood's Executive Job Search is by far the most complete, easy to read, practical, hands-on job change book I have read.
The section, Checklist for Evaluating your Campaign, was especially helpful to maintain my momentum and feel I was making progress. I had plenty of opportunity to practice the section, Dealing with Rejection, and several times received valuable information and referrals after being told "NO."
