Make no mistake, getting hired is a competition. This book will help you discover what you can do, what you want to do, and how to find companies that will hire you.

Change Is the Only Constant

Perhaps you already have a job, but you are not happy in your current position; you might want a promotion, be out of work, or have just graduated. Further, you may not yet know what job you can do, what career will make you happy, or how you want to pivot your career. There is an infinite number of reasons why you might look for something new, but to make a career change, you need to get hired. At some point in everyone’s career, they will need to change jobs, careers, or both. Even the CEO of a company will eventually need to find another position, maybe a board position, or become a CEO at a different company. Nothing lasts forever, and you need to prepare for the change.There is, and will continue to be, enormous competition for jobs at all levels. You are not alone.

You Must Stand Out!

There are millions searching for a job, and millions of jobs available. Yet, there are still hundreds of thousands of open opportunities that go unfilled. Well-qualified individuals struggle to get an offer. Many won’t even get a response to their application. Fewer still will be offered a screening interview.

Why? Because they lack focus, are not prepared, or are not going about their job search campaign in the best way. They don’t stand out from the crowd. To be successful, you must stand out! You must compete and win. The Getting Hired Program has helped Paul's clients stand above their competition.

The most common ways to find a job are networking and applying to a job posting. The Getting Hired Program is a step-by-step guide to successfully managing careers using both approaches.

The Program helps you be more confident by illustrating how to do thorough research and job search preparation. Adequate preparation demonstrates to any employer that the candidate cared enough to do their homework. Well-prepared candidates will compete, win, and get hired.
