Career Activism

So many things have changed yet so many things still apply to your getting the right job at a salary that works for you. This is true whether you want a staff position or you’re looking to freelance—or even if you want to monetize a hobby or talent! That’s why Careers AF! 2nd Edition is the go-to resource for new grads wanting  a foot in the door; millennials looking to move up the corporate ladder; boomers intending to transition or reinvent yourself; or, new immigrants trying to get a handle on the local business culture…

Reading Careers AF! is a pleasure. Its relaxed, everyday language feels like you’re sitting down with a friend who’s really smart, has decades of experience as a recruiter and job coach yet is totally in tune with 21st century job realities. But don’t let the casual tone fool you; this is powerful, practical stuff. There are many powerful, hands-on takeaways:

  • Valuable information you will use to assess specifically which jobs are a fit for you so you don’t waste time applying for a job you can’t get or really don’t want
  • Easy guidelines for writing cover letters, bios and even recommendations (in case someone is willing to recommend you but wants you to write the actual letter)
  • Up to the minute tips on how to effectively make today’s technologies, like Twitter, LinkedIn and other platforms, really work for you
  • Insightful techniques for preparing yourself mentally and emotionally for your search
  • Insider insights into how to kill at the interview (along with “the 3 biggest mistakes people make at interviews” so you can avoid them)
  • Clear advice on how to ask for the salary you want and max your chances to get it
