After working at all three major career management and outplacement firms in the US, the author learned first-handed what worked, what didn't and why, in both good economic times and bad; and no matter what the "unemployment, inflation, recession" news of the day happened to be. This book is is full of job search strategies that work even when the economy is SUPPOSED to be bad for jobseekers and career changers . Get the Job You Want, Even When No One's Hiring reveals the "secrets" and strategies that have, until now, only been available to elite executives working with the nation's top outplacement firms (where their employers often paid huge fees for these services).
