This review is from: Shorten Your Job Search: Build Confidence, Communicate Your Value and
Land Your New Job! (Paperback)
Lloyd Feinstein’s “Shorten Your Job Search” is a must read for anyone seeking
employment. Mr. Feinstein has spent almost 30 years guiding his clients through
the pitfalls of job searches. His aim is to reduce the time it takes for one to find a job. Arguably, the costly part of a job search is the lost income someone suffers by not working. “Shorten Your Job Search” helps. It provides a fresh look at the job market, emphasizing what Mr. Feinstein calls a “marketing resume” that revamps the resume approach by including important attributes of a candidate that are often neglected in traditional resumes:
personality, management style, work history in a PAR (problem-action-result
format), and more.
The book is tightly organized into 9 distinct chapters that guide the reader through
self-assessment, to building a “marketing resume,” to the hiring process while
adding key lessons such how to enhance your “pitch” with storytelling. The book
is full of insightful war stories, which drive home his points; practical hands-on
tips such as how to reach the person you need to reach and ways to improve your
negotiations; and lessons for conveying your value in terms the hiring manager can understand.
Following Mr. Feinstein’s guidelines will improve your confidence, your
understanding of the job market, and most important of all reduce the time it
takes to find a new job. I highly recommend this book.
