As Stephen Covey says, "Seek first to understand, then to be understood." Mr. LeVie conveys this principle and empowers readers by helping them understand the hiring manager's dilemma and gives the, "Fearless job seeker or career changer" the necessary guidance to accomplish their goals.
By highlighting the need to develop a strategy for your career change and the steps in developing such a strategy, the reader can learn to be intentional in achieving their goals. Couple that with the wealth of additional information contained in this book and you are sure to have the upper hand in the applicant pool!
I’m often asked for career advice and usually just provide some guidance based on my experience. But LeVie has provided a peek behind the curtain and a view from the other side of the table (to mix metaphors) and opens up that kind of advice in ways not available before.
But it was a specific chapter, the one on focusing on advice for veterans returning to the job market, titled oddly enough “Just for Veterans: Transforming Back to the Civilian Job Market” that really impressed me. With so many returning from the military after escalated enlistments many veterans are woefully unprepared to translate the skills obtained in their particular branch and discipline of the military that they are at a disadvantage when applying for positions seemingly unfamiliar to them. LeVie has taken the “do what you know” approach one step further.
He takes a very skillset-focused, knowledge-based tack looking at how to compete, how to bring yourself up to speed and how to utilize tools, some online available for vets to level the field and provide them a better advantage both intuitively and competitively.
For those not returning from military service the book is very useful as well. I would recommend this book for everyone in the job market now whether actively looking or even just for future reference. It is a keeper, but keep it at home so the boss doesn’t see it.
The advice in this book will make you think and raise the level of how you approach any job or career move.
Donn LeVie is an invaluable resource to contact when seeking a job. I strongly encourage that everyone purchase this book.
