From the best-selling author of “Hot Jobs” and “Jobs That Don’t Suck” (HarperCollins and Ballantine Books) comes the definitive guide on how to get a job and move up the ladder.

Competition for great jobs at great companies is fierce, and using job boards like Indeed.com won’t cut it. What you need is advice from young people who have landed these jobs by doing things DIFFERENTLY. By going around the system. By ignoring job boards completely.

In this book I’ve interviewed young professionals who have great jobs at great companies to hear how they broke through the clutter of competition to get interviews, to get job offers, and to move up the ladder. Companies including; Geffen Records, Reebok, The X-Games, MTV, The Whitney Museum, Chiat/Day Advertising, top Finance companies and leading Tech/Software companies.

Here’s what’s in the book:8 things you absolutely must say in the interview to get an offer. There are things that hiring people are expecting to hear from you. If you don’t say them, you won’t get an offer.How to write resumes that get noticed and that are ATS savvy.Creative cover letter examples that will break through the clutter. This is one of the biggest pet peeves of people who hire: cover letters are all the same, using the same stupid language.
