Verdict: CORPORATE RECRUITER TELLS ALL provides a plethora of to the point information and advice to better prepare job seekers for landing their dream job.
Ryan Fisher shares his wealth of behind-the-scenes-hiring information and strategic, career building advice based on his twelve-plus years experience as a professional recruiter in this concise guide to landing your dream job.
Fisher’s premise is that many people do not really understand the ins and out of the hiring process. The book’s fourteen chapters not only cover some of the basic subjects such as knowing your goals and doing your research to interviewing skills and tips for writing your resume, but also provides the inside scoop of getting to the essence of hiring and how to get paid what you want and, more importantly, what you are worth. Fisher accomplishes this with clearly laid out information about questions clarifying your own career goals; resources on how to find out what you are worth; how to work with recruiters, and prepare for interviews, networking strategies in addition to making sure your bases are covered with a new job before you depart your old job.
To clarify his points, Fisher provides specific questions and concrete examples that encompass numerous situations. Readers can learn from the mistakes that Fisher provides as example of how potential hires have made mistakes.
Fisher’s writing is succinct and the text is set in boxes or bullet points for clarity and easy visual reference. The tone of the book is professional and encouraging, though Fisher does at one point slip out of tone and write: “I’m so sick of this”, referring to when people ask the question “How much does this job pay?”
Though the book ends somewhat abruptly with a few concluding remarks tacked onto the last chapter, the chapters are concise, well organized and provide a well-rounded approach to preparing for a strategic career move.
CORPORATE RECRUITER TELLS ALL provides a plethora of to the point information and advice to better prepare job seekers for landing their dream job.
