It’s nearing the official “birthday” of the new book I wrote with Laura Labovich — 100 Conversations for Career Success: Learn to Network, Cold Call, and Tweet Your Way to Your Dream Job is now available in bookstores and online. We have a special offer!This practical job search communication book is for smart, savvy job seekers who know they need to mine the hidden job market and go “off-road” with their networking contacts, but are stuck when it comes to what to say.
Laura and I know many confident professionals who cringe at the idea of making cold calls or reaching out to someone they don’t know. In fact, one job seeker actually said, “I wish I had some sort of script to use.”
Enter 100 Conversations for Career Success. This handy resource helps address the question on every job seeker’s mind, “When I reach out, what do I say?” It showcases more than 100 sample job search scripts, tips, and templates to take the guesswork out of networking communication. The book includes examples of job-search interactions in person, via telephone, by email, and on social networks.
Having examples to use at various stages of a job search helps build a jobseeker’s confidence to communicate effectively and productively. The result? Better networking contacts, improved relationships, and more job offers.
In essence, this book is a job seeker’s communication lifeline. Liz Lynch, author of Smart Networking: Attract a Following In Person and Online, calls it the “ultimate resource for reaching out to contacts and potential new connections.” Lynch asserts, “With detailed examples and scripts, this invaluable guide will help jumpstart a new job search or revitalize an ongoing one.”
The book is winning rave reviews and is endorsed as a “fantastic formula for the job search.” Anita Bruzzese, USA Today columnist and author of 45 Things You Do That Drive Your Boss Crazy, says, “If you want to have a successful job search, begin with this book.”
