my e-book, How to Get a Job: Secrets of a Hiring Manager. Use this discount code today for a massive 40% discount off the regular $24.95 price: newjob

If you’ve ever wished that you could look into the brain of a hiring manager to find out what you need to do to get hired, this is for you. 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, 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

Here are some things readers have said after purchasing it:

“This morning my husband had an interview. I bugged him for over a week about reading your guide and he ignored me. Yesterday, I twisted his arm and finally got him to read it. He liked the advice so much he read it a second time. He really took it seriously and followed all of the advice you gave … He just called me to tell me the interview was done and that it had been the best interview he had ever had.” — Kim J.

“I used to have 50/50 luck getting past phone interviews and into the actual in-person interview. Once I read your book, I went 100% in getting past the phone interview, and I was ALWAYS in the top running for every position since then. I absolutely know it was because of your advice in the book. I could just feel the quality of my interviews go up exponentially after I read it.” — Russell B.

“I just received an offer for an excellent position, and your advice helped me clinch it. I never had a more relaxed interview, and my interviewers were all smiles the entire time. I literally had an offer before I made it back to my car.” — Kat S.

    Thank you! My husband’s rounding off week 28 of unemployment and he’s getting SO frustrated with his search. I’m giving this to him as a gift–hopefully it’ll help!

    This book is definitely worth it. While the principles are of course the same as Alison writes about in her regular blog posts, it’s quite valuable to have it all in one place, neatly organized for browsing convenience.

    I also have to credit Alison with helping me get my current job–I got laid off a few months ago, but used her tips to put together a good resume and help me throughout the phone and in-person interviews. It definitely helped me be much more prepared and relaxed. Definitely would recommend the book!

    I just purchased this for my husband, who hasn’t had to job hunt in nearly 18 years. I’m hoping he takes Alison’s advice to heart!

    Thanks to following Alison’s advice in this book, I’m about to start a new job in a stretch position. The director of HR kept complimenting my professionalism through the entire process, and really loved the questions I asked during my interviews. My new manager is so excited he was vibrating when I signed the offer last week. And partly due to selling myself well, and partly due to changing from clerical work to network administration, I have a 50% salary increase and room to grow.

    It’s well worth it!

    Can someone who has purchased this answer: is this a physical book or an e-book?

    I work at a community center where we provide job resources to LGBT youth. I would love to have a copy of this book as a reference, but it won’t work as an e-book.

    Thank you!

    1. My 2 Cents*

      Even though it is an e-book it does come as PDF that you could print out if you need a physical copy.

    I already have a copy–just didn’t think I’d need it again so soon. *sigh*

    Are there any posts about job hunting around a disability that keeps you from doing a function in most jobs? Because every damn listing I’m seeing requires some kind of budgeting or something. :(

    I am so incredibly screwed.

    1. AG*

      I am currently job hunting too. I came across a staffing agency called Peak Performers that specializes in finding positions for people with disabilities. Maybe there’s a similar agency in your area. Good luck!

  7. Confused Publisher*

    Just bought it, and had to pause dinner repeatedly to take notes from the webinars. You are amazing, Alison, and I find myself, more and more asking myself ‘what would Alison do’ when in tricky professional situations!

  8. AG*

    Purchased and listening to your webinar now. I’ve been reading your blog for at least 4 years and it’s helped me immensely. Thanks!

  9. NPOQueen*

    Payday is this Thursday, will this code work until then? I’d love to pick it up if the code lasts until then!

    Just bought the book as my support for this blog and its fantastic community! I’ve been job searching for the past 3 months, and have read through countless blog posts for advice on various topics. It’s unbelievable the wealth of awesome information that’s available here, and I’m very, very thankful to have stumbled across this blog early in my job search.

    I accepted an offer earlier this week, and am now waiting for my background check to finish processing. Even though I don’t quite need the book now, I’m still going to read through it. One of my top takeaways from this blog is to always keep your job searching skills sharp. Thank you to Alison and for all those who take the time to contribute! All your help is greatly appreciated and I am immensely grateful.

    Does this book help one in the actual job search? For example, things like how to find companies/industries to look for job in if you have no direction whatsoever (either because one is just ignorant of what’s out there or majored in something that does not directly translate to a specific job function and/or title? Or what job search engines to use or avoid? Or does this book focus on everything after that assuming one knows what job they are aiming for?
