Updated and revised in 2015 and receiving a new cover in 2016, "Job " (also available as an audio book on Amazon, iTunes and Audible) is a powerful job search book focusing on providing the reader with the core of what employers want--an expression from the job seeker on the value they will bring to the organization. Without that statement Gillis contends that an interview is a waste of both party's time. Rick Gillis further provides simple but ingenious information on how to successfully navigate resume filtering software and further advises the reader on how to craft a resume that recruiters will appreciate and follow up on. Additionally this newly updated (2015) and revised edition contains a chapter introducing you to best practices when utilizing social media in your job search--which is another way of saying "LinkedIn." "Job The Video," Rick's full day workshop taped before a live audience is also available on Amazon. For more information you can visit the author's site: RickGillis.com.
