Becoming a Rare Find Why don't employers take a optimistic view of people's potential Why is there such a fixation on a few bullet point highlights of candidates' resumes to the point that most applicants are uickly cast aside as not good enough Why is there such unwillingness to get to know what job seekers are all about What if you could change the rules What if you could capture the attention of employers who should be hiring you persuading them to see you on your terms Becoming a Rare Find will show you how to approach job hunting in ways that play to your strengths If you are a natural project manager then develop a project plan If you like marketing build a marketing campaign that centers on reasons why employers should want you Whatever approach you settle on and no matter what job you want you will get a better chance to show your fire You will escape the clutter of job posting stampedes where the odds of winning even a barista's job can be slimmer than the chances of getting into Harvard You will start finding jobs through the hidden market where they are sometimes never announced and you will discover the value of small companies with big ambitions Finally you will learn how to rearrange your social media profiles so that when great employers look for talent they will find you This book had a lot of nuggets to make it a worthwhile read but it seems to have a particular audience in mind recent college graduates and those willing to work in the tech companies Social media is mentioned something that not a lot of people would normally think of when they imagine becoming a rare find This is a short book that can be perused in one sitting The ideas are fresh but most people will find that it takes a lot of work to become that person It will surprise a lot of folks on what it takes now to land a job This was a book title that jumped out at me as when I saw it on NetGalley I had been looking for a job for over four months without success As it happens I was finally offered a position a couple of days ago so my hunt is over but I still thought this book might be worth a readNow the book does focus mainly on the US in terms of its commentary and examples but the ideas it expounds are not limited to the US alone A strong focus of this book is on modern networking such as online social media It also considers ways to get ahead of the crowd feeling out for jobs rather than waiting for advertisements to appearI certainly did gain a few ideas from reading this book but I do feel it is probably relevant to those looking for a specialised or 'high flying' position that those who just want a little administrative job to pay the bills In conclusion this book might not be for everyone but if you have a particular career goal in mind and are looking for ways to break into the field this book may offer you some new ideas and help you on your wayI received this book as a free e book ARC via NetGalley
