GET HIRED! Grow. Lead. Live. covers four career stages: getting a job, getting promoted, moving into management and becoming a leader. Eastman knows what he is talking about. He was in business for nearly 30 years, working at Ford and Boeing, McCaw Communications and Boise Cascade. He learned in each place, so his examples ring true. In the section on getting a job, for example, he covers how to design your ideal job, target an industry and companies, make contacts, differentiate yourself, handle an interview and persist. If all that fails, Eastman tells you how to think about starting your own company. Once you get in an employer's door, Eastman shows how to climb the ladder, become a leader, and finally how to have a good life. --Nancy Napier, Executive Director of the Centre for Creativity and Innovation, Professor of Strategy and International Business, Boise State University, Idaho Statesman, Three books on tactics for landing a job, building a life.

This new book offers pragmatic advice coupled with wonderful insights from a top executive who has lived an eclectic, harmonious and fulfilling life. From newly minted graduates to mid-career professionals and everyday job seekers, this book transcends mere job search and delves into the art of living during challenging times. Hal Eastman masterfully describes classic approaches to career development while weaving a tapestry for those interested in much more than a job. This Boise-based writer has created a book worth sharing with anyone interested in their own career or in assisting other people chart their life journey. --Dr. John Luthy, President, The Futures Corporation, The McAnaney Report, April 2013, Issue 19
About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
For those beginning a career search, the author provides ideas on self-assessment, networking tactics, and proper interview etiquette. Additionally, while many job how-to books abandon us after guidance through receiving an offer, Eastman continues with a chapter on how to get promoted. He provides ideas on ways to get noticed in a job, such as recommending solutions instead of pointing out problems and building trust through keeping confidences. Eastman also discusses ideas many career experts fear to tackle, such as when and why to leave a job.
For current and future managers, Eastman describes ways to construct motivated teams. He tells about the importance of letting employees go who aren't the right fit. He also is quick to criticize micromanagers and deplores the stifling environment bureaucracy can breed, stating both should be avoided at all costs.
Eastman tackles the challenges presented when transitioning to a chief-level role and the necessity of shifting one's mentality to adapt to new responsibilities.Read more ›
