Once a year, I offer a big discount on my my e-book, How to Get a Job: Secrets of a Hiring Manager, and it’s happening now. 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:

“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.”

“Thanks to the tips, tricks, and advice in this book, I landed an incredible new job in a new-to-me industry doing something I love. I was also able to negotiate a great hiring package including a big jump in salary and benefits. I’m sure I would have found a decent job without this book, but I absolutely feel that I was able to find something incredible with 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.”

“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.”

        I second this request! At least print-on-demand. It really helps to be able to refer to things in print.

    A+, highly recommend. It gave me invaluable help in my last job search and I am sure will continue to provide value as I move along in my career. If you’re on the fence, GET IT.

    This was such a huge help to me during my last job search. I submitted only two resumes, got calls for interviews on both (although I declined one), and was offered a job with a 23% pay increase. The culture and fit of this job is perfect for me, and I really felt like a had a good idea of that based on the questions I asked during the interviews. I’ve been here a year now, and still thrilled. This book and your blog helped so much in every stage of the process, and I felt really confident throughout it. Thank you so much for all you do, Alison!

    I’m having trouble downloading it to my phone. It downloads as a zip file but it says 0% downloaded when I try to open it. Should I download to computer and then email to phone?

        1. Sorrischian*

          A lot of phones can’t extract .zip files, so I’d definitely make sure you do that before you send it over from the computer.

    1. Not I.T.*

      Not sure if you’re an Android user, but I was able to open it on mine via Google Drive for a PDF version. Hope that helps!

  4. Nice Aunt*

    I bought a copy for myself, I would like to buy another copy for my niece. What is the best way to do that and get it sent to her?

  5. Jedi Squirrel*

    THANK YOU! This is so timely right now!

    We really appreciate all the work you’ve put into this site over the years. Thanks so much, Allison!

    Do you think the majority of the advice would be applicable outside the US? Specifically, in the UK? I’ve always been underemployed and my current job hunt isn’t going well :(

  7. Sophie Hatter*

    Hope a lot of people can take advantage of this! I only started getting interviews after following Alison’s advice!

  8. ThisIsNotWhoYouThinkItIs*

    Another happy customer here!

    If you are in the US, and you have been practicing a bit, this will still help you. For me, it helped me hone the things I was already doing (like my cover letters), and gave me a few more tips that I hadn’t thought of.

    If you have the money, do it. Definitely worth it.

  9. thethatcher*

    Does this include resume and cover letter guidance? because I really need that before the interview stuff becomes relevant at all.

  10. Enginear*

    I can vouch for this book. Helped me tremendously when I was looking for my first career job out of college. I was super prepared for my first in-person interview and ended up getting the job in an industry that I didn’t even go to school for.

  11. Invisible Fish*

    I’m in education- think junior high and high school, teaching and trying to move into other roles (types of specialists, administration) – think what’s in here is applicable? Or is it better focused on other fields?

  12. confused iphone user*

    Ummmm…..any other iphone users here? I expected this to be in my kindle but instead I have an unopenable zip file, what gives?

    1. confused iphone user*

      Little help, anyone? I tried e-mailing to my computer, extracting it there, and attaching that to an e-mail to send back to my phone to try and open it there but it won’t even attach and so far it’s been such a convoluted and frustrating process that honestly I regret purchasing this

  13. Miriel*

    Skimmed the sample interview questions yesterday as I prepared for a round of 3 interviews – was very relaxed and had truly wonderful conversations with all my interviewers. I knew I had the technical skills, but I didn’t think I was worth a 40% raise and promotion!!!! Thanks Alison for the terrific resource that calms this normally nervous and stiff interviewee year after year after year.

  14. Tea Drinker*

    Well, I got it! Hopefully, I can use it this coming year as my company lost it’s biggest contract (50% of multi-billion gross income) and it will end within 12 months….I really want a different job within the company, but got to face the fact that that might not happen.

  15. Emilie*

    Hi Alison!
    Just bought a copy for myself but I’d love to buy a copy for my little brother — could I get the extra step enabled as well? Thank you!

  16. starsaphire*

    Bought it this year, finally.

    Will probably be job hunting in a couple of months, so seemed like a good opportunity.

  17. knitcrazybooknut*

    I recommend this book! It has been massively helpful as a resource for many issues that have come up in my work life, whether around interviewing, being interviewed, or what have you. The advice on cover letters alone has landed me at least one job. (Crossing my fingers on a second right now).

    COMPLETELY worth it. Thank you, Alison!
