Harvey Mackay has written five New York Times bestsellers, including one of the most popular business books of all time-Swim with the Sharks Without Being Eaten Alive. Now he returns with the ultimate audio book on how to get, and keep, a job you truly love whether you're twenty-one, fifty-one, or seventy-one.
The average person will have at least three career changes and ten different jobs by age thirty-eight. In this era of downsizing and outsourcing, you can never be sure your job will still exist in five years-or five weeks. So you'd better think of your career as a perpetual job search. That demands a passion for lifetime learning and the skills for relentless and effective networking.
Mackay shows you how to be at your best when things are at their worst. His hard-hitting topics include:
beating rejection before it beats you
negotiating the job you want, not the job they offer
taking advantage of the way bosses make hiring decisions
blending the latest contact tools with old-fashioned face-to-face networking
Uplifting, amusing, and jam-packed with proven tips, Use Your Head to Get Your Foot in the Door will guide you through the toughest job market in decades. It's also the definitive A-to-Z career resource for the rest of your life.
