There are already too many books on the market that are long on generalities and short on specifics about how to work the hiring process to one’s own advantage in this or any economy.What job seekers and career changers really need is advice from the hiring manager’s perspective that offers valuable insight into how to become the candidate of choice while understanding and addressing the hiring managers needs. Résumé writers or career coaches offer a perspective of being on the outside looking in- the hiring manager is already on the inside and knows the subtleties that give one candidate the edge over others who may be equally qualified.Confessions of a Hiring Manager Rev. 2.0 2nd Ed. provides more insight into those qualities hiring managers need and want in addition to focusing on how candidates can get to and keep their names at the top of the hiring manager’s short list. Donn shows job seekers and career changers—including military veterans returning to the civilian workforce—how to package their work history into a Professional Skills, Knowledge, and Experience Portfolio (PSKE Portfolio™) and leverage it over time to separate the value-add candidate from all other applicants. In addition, he shares strategies for creating and promoting a professional brand, changing the rules of the game, and how to network with other professionals the right way.Revised throughout, Confessions of a Hiring Manager Rev. 2.0 2nd Ed. expands the view from the other side of the desk that reveals the perspectives and expectations hiring managers have of people looking for a job or a new career. It is the definitive guide for job seekers. While résumé writers and career coaches may give you a fish to feed you for a day, Confessions of a Hiring Manager Rev. 2.0 2nd Ed. continues to teach you how to fish so you can feed yourself for a lifetime of professional and career success.
