On the second day of Christmas - Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 2.0 revealed to me - "Two strategies to crack the hidden job market.." Click HERE for FREE DVD that gets you hired - “New Job Search Secrets" You know, most people put more time into writing down a shopping list for the grocery store than a list of employers they want to work for. Totally illogical, isn’t it? I mean, why be happy working just anywhere? Why not work for a company that excites you? Instead of blindly sending out résumés to companies you’ve never heard of before, it’s far better to first select potential employers that meet YOUR criteria and then contact them with an offer to help. Which is what you’re going to learn to do today. And one of the ways to do that is with Google. To get the best results focus all your time and effort on the companies you’ve identified as being the Tier 1 buyers of your product - you. Anything else is a waste of your time, energy and money. Target your campaign at those companies where you know you can help solve a problem. Nothing beats a direct approach...

On the first day of Christmas - Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 2.0 revealed to me - "A Plan with Clarity..." Click HERE for FREE DVD that gets you hired - “New Job Search Secrets" The best advice you'll ever receive is start your job hunt with absolute clarity. All of the best job search advice in the world can be boiled down to three steps: decide what job you want; tell the right hiring authority about it; prove to them you’re the one to hire. Pretty simple summation of the facts. Create a plan that is clear and detailed in every way --- then give it some panache! If you want to get hired you have to get noticed. You have to raise your voice above the crowd to be heard. So when everyone else is doing more of the same - things that aren't working - you have to be more focused. Your job search needs to be focused and very clear. It must also be: Clever, Results driven, Marketing oriented, Inexpensive to execute, Realistic, and Achievable. Clever - That’s because the most qualified job hunter is rarely the one who gets hired. The positions[s] invariably go to...
