From the Author
My inspiration for "Cut the Crap, Get a Job!" came from years of helping job seekers throughout my career and a passion to help thousands more worldwide. We are facing a crisis in this country, as well as globally so any bit we each can do can help. The college debt crisis, military returning from serving our country, promotion slow-down and many more challenges are going to hurt our next generations' futures if we don't do something now.
I retired from 30 years working for corporations to help full-time. Speaking, consulting and authoring are my passions, specifically for the career category of need.

Top Customer Reviews
The Kindle version of this book is affordable and it is highly recommended!
The organization and presentation of this book really could not be better. As far as learning what you need to know about getting a job, changing careers, or upgrading your job status, it gets no easier than this. (The material presented in this book is incredibly simple, every bit of it based on real-world experience. Putting it to use in an organized, systematic way will require hard work on your part.)
The beauty of this book lies in its simplicity. Within each chapter Dana presents readers with one or more challenges, solutions to those challenges, mistakes to avoid, helpful tips, excuses to rid yourself of and homework assignments. She's also included Web links where one can download a boatload of helpful items such as planning tools, goal-setting exercises, examples of job descriptions, networking plans, tracking tools, etc. Everything here is presented in -- and can easily be followed in -- step-by-step fashion. No bold brushstrokes...this is more paint-by-number with precision.
This book so resonated with me that I recommend it to clients (I'm a career transition coach) and I use it as a resource in my own practice. And, as an added bonus, I attended a workshop of Dana's in downtown Seattle yesterday and came away with at least nine tips that will be of great help to me (phone etiquette, e-mail etiquette, networking not for a job but for prospective clients, and some new ways of tapping into social media).
My best advice: Get the book. Read it once for informational purposes. Read it again with highlighter in hand. Go to work on each step in each chapter. Download the electronic resources and make the very best use of them. Don't freak out. Be courageous. Be persistent.
Also, if you have the chance to attend one of Dana's workshops or see her speak, don't think twice. Just do it.
I came upon Cut The Crap, Get a Job, I couldn't put it down. It was no nonsense, and it just made sense. The tools provided will be the differentiator. It was less than two weeks and I had an offer.
It's amazing what the insightful little voice in your head will say when you are prepared and in an interview. I highly recommend you buy this book!
