secrets of a hiring manager (and a holiday gift)

As a holiday gift, this week I’m offering you 40% off my e-book, How to Get a Job: Secrets of a Hiring Manager. Put in this discount code and you’ll get a massive discount: holiday2012

Written from my perspective as a long-time hiring manager, this e-book gives you step-by-step guidance through every stage of your job search … explaining at each step what a hiring manager is thinking and what they want to see from you … from getting noticed initially, to nailing the interview, to navigating the tricky post-interview period, all the way through your offer.

You’ll learn things like:

  • what hiring managers are looking for when they ask common interview questions
  • how to talk about sensitive issues when you interview — firings, bad bosses, “overqualification,” and more
  • how to avoid companies that aren’t a good fit
  • 6 ways you might be sabotaging your job search
  • 2 ways you can turn rejection to your advantage

Learn more about it here, or buy it here:

You can also give the book to your job-hunting friends and family — email me privately before you purchase to arrange for a gift message to be included.

Happy holidays!

    I have this book and it was extremely helpful to me in my job search! (Alison, you can send the $20 to my Paypal… :P)

    I echo what Victoria HR said — this book is some of the best advice, broken down into easy steps, applicable for anyone who is looking for a job. Networking, resumes, cover letters, interviewing, thank you notes, salary negotiation, offers — it covers EVERYTHING you want to know.

    If you want to stand out, don’t resort to gimmicks. Listen to the advice in this book and make yourself stand out on your own merits.

    Wow thanks for offering this sweet discount, I just bought it and it’s wonderful. I’ve read a handful of all the top rated job search books on amazon but this one’s a winner. I trust your guidance and love your writing style. Thanks Alison!

  4. What the?*

    I also have this book, read it cover to cover and it helped me land a great job after struggling for 18 months of unemployment ….I paid full price, and it was well worth every $$.

    I have this and love it! Though I haven’t managed to land a job yet using the advice (should probably start applying for jobs, right?) I definitely recommend it! So many sensible tips! Thanks Alison.

    I just bought your book and will be reading it over the holidays since I lost my job last week and am trying to find a new role as quickly as possible. I’ve been reading your blog for the past couple months (ironically I read a post about what to do if you think you’re about to lose your job on the way to work on what I later found out was to be my last day!) I’ve really enjoyed all your posts and reading the user comments. I can already tell this book has some invaluable advice too – you tip about spam filters is 100% accurate. I almost missed out on an interview because I didn’t know this earlier. I’m really looking forward to thoroughly reading your book, and thank you so much for the discount!

    I’d like to buy this book, but for those who have it, is there any vast difference between the book and the advice dispensed here?

    1. What the?*

      I would say yes, because it’s specific to the job search and it has a flow, you might be able to find similar advice in the blog, but I bought it because I wanted the step by step approach at the tip of my fingers. Out of all the books on job search out there, this one was the best. If you like the blog, you will like the book.

    After reading all of your no-nonsense common sense advice here, I’d thought about ordering your book. The discount was just the push I needed — just downloaded a copy. Looking forward to reading through and applying your techniques. And the discount was really appreciated!!
