lose the resume, land the job

Getting a job and, more importantly, building a career has never been more complex. Job seekers need a plan for the future, a trajectory toward bigger and better things that showcases the ability to do more, take on more, and, above all, contribute more to the next employer. At every level today, you need to lose the resume in order to land the right job. Rather, you must learn to tell a story about yourself that speaks to your competencies, purpose and passion, and values. This contrary to what most people do: They rely on their resumes, believing that what theyve done will speak for itself. But the conventional approach of polishing up your resume and sending it out at random is a losing proposition, given that 98 percent of resumes submitted for a job posting fail to result in an interview. Lose the Resume shares with readers at all levels--with a target audience of young professionals through middle managers--the rules of engagement: How they must think and act and present themselves so they can win. The focus starts within--with all-important inner exploration drawn from the world-class IP of Korn Ferry, the worlds largest executive recruiting firm. The book gleans insights, stories (the good, the bad and sometimes the ugly) from Korn Ferry recruiters across the globe who work with thousands of candidates each day. The book also includes assessments, questionnaires, and other tools adapted for this audience and the book. These resources will help readers gain deeper perspective on who they are, what theyre passionate about, the cultures in which they fit, the kind of bosses they should work for, and where they can bring the most value to organizations.
