Here's my story:
On March 7, I lost my job as a National Sales Manager. My husband is a stay-at-home dad, so our stakes were greater than most. The following day I began applying for positions on career builders, linked in, Monster. I even paid to have my resume posted on The ladders. (which was a total waste of money) Every morning began the same, 7 a.m. I began applying, 7 p.m. I sent my last for the day. Not knowing any better, I was working with an extremely long 4 page resume, even at 30 years of age.
On June 9th I found out that I had been passed over for a regional Sales Management role, a role that I didn't want for any other reason except for the pay check. Devastated, I went to my local library to hide my shame and look for answers. Up until this point, I had been on 4 interviews in 3 months. The calls just weren't coming in like they had in the past. It was during that very trip to the library that I stumbled upon the 1st version of Job hunters. After reading the reviews online, I decided to spend the $13.17 to buy the updated Guerrilla Marketing for Job hunters 3.0 e-book on Amazon.
Determined not to waste any time, I began reading. By Sunday, 36 hours later, I had read the book and begun the process. I felt the urgency, the clock was ticking, day & night. I followed the book step by step, reading and re-reading, like a mad-woman on a mission. By Monday, June 13, 2011 I had written my Guerrilla resume, updated my extended resume, (For content purposes only) created my cover letter and posted my resume. I spent the following week networking and completing profile after profile. It wasn't until the week after, June 27-July 1st that the calls from potential employers started coming in.Read more ›
There is something imbecile about sending coffee cups and boxes along with pamphlet-like resumes full of logos to potential employers. Maybe one has to be able to differentiate oneself from the crowd, but I certainly do not want to look like an idiot among sheep.

If you are truly serious about finding a new career opportunity, this book is required reading. Don't do another thing at all in your job search until you have this book in your hands and read it. It is better that you do nothing at all than to do something without David Perry's guidance, coaching, wisdom and insight.
Do you want a larger paycheck sooner rather than later? If so, invest in yourself. Buy this book. Not buying it will probably cost you thousands of dollars. Buying it will cost you what two Starbucks coffees would cost you. If you had the opportunity to buy David Perry a Starbucks, sit down with him for 3 hours and pick his brain, I bet you would do it. That is what you are doing here...having a "virtual cup of coffee" with the best in the business in job hunting. But it gets even better...with his book you have all of the notes from that meeting, in writing, to review and use over and over again.
So why was I eagerly waiting for the release of "Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0?"
I am a "headhunter." I do not call myself a recruiter. I do not call myself an "executive search" consultant. I PLACE PEOPLE into COMPANIES. I help companies "hire to win." I am 100% commissioned in what I do. If I do NOT place my candidate into an open position, I don't get paid. I don't eat! I am in the JOB HUNT BATTLE EVERY DAY OF MY LIFE!
Thus, what I do MUST WORK! All too many job hunting books are written by HR professionals and career counselors who will get their salary or get their "career counseling consulting fee" regardless of whether you get hired or not.
SO WHAT DOES THIS HAVE TO DO WITH GUERRILLA 3.0?? In one word, "EVERYTHING"!Read more ›
This guide shows you the step by step way to "market" YOU!! You'll learn and apply different approaches to not only the traditional ways of job hunting but also what the current trends are and how to use the latest online platforms to add ammunition to your arsenal to hit your target dream job!!
As I mentioned above, I was out of work for 8 months and I have heard from other people who are still looking after 12 months, 18 months, 24 months....it's a very sad situation indeed!! Having been thru to the process - I cannot emphasize enough the need to be different - I got this book around mid-May 2011. Before getting this, I had already rewritten my resume of 4 pages a million times and had the 2-page, 3-page 4-page versions for all kinds of different roles. The "shot gun" approach!! Nothing worked!! So, instead of hitting my head against the same brick wall and hoping for a different result - I decided to apply the "rules of engagement" from GMJH 3.0!
My 1-pager resume started to get noticed and even though I didn't get offers straight away - recruiters were calling back - YES, they were calling back!!Read more ›
