Introduction: Cracking the Hiring Code
You Are Being Eliminated
You're not being hired; you're being excluded
You don't fit their secret criteria
You only get one shot
No one will tell you when you've made a mistake
Hidden patterns cost you jobs
Stop Playing Resume Roulette
Your resume is headed for the trash
You CAN lie on your resume
A computer is deciding your job prospects
You can be an "internal recommendation" or just look like one
Cover letters can cause immediate exclusion
The Internet is working against you
Professional references are useless
Your Interview Is Over
Hiring managers are not on your side
Interviewers will trick you
Your body will betray you
There's one trick to all trick questions
Storytelling is your best defense
There's one "type" that always gets the offer
Your interview may not be real
One size does not fit all
The thank-you note is too late
Calling to "follow up" will cost you the job
Asking questions makes you look like a risk
Screening the company will screen you out
Danger! Traps Ahead!
Your public records are working against you
The initial phone call is a trap
Quitting your job is the kiss of death
Failure to negotiate will cost you more than money
There is a hidden employment contract
Mothers are being hired for less
Don't ever admit you've been fired
Age discrimination is shutting your out
"No" may not mean "no."
Interviewers don't hear what you say
Recruiters must be managed
Your inner voice is not as silent as you think
You can tell when you're "in" or "out"
Your dream job is here
You're Hired. Now What?
The spotlight is on
You must take sides
Your new job is not secure
Looking like you don't belong is the key
Every day is your next interview
You have the power
