It is not too difficult to find a job in the labor market today. Even people without a college education can get a job in today’s market. This is why it is important for you, as a recent college graduate, to learn job-search survival tips from experienced professionals who have walked the walk and did the talk. This means you will need to get out of the house, and spend some time in the library (if only for a little bit) soaking up job-searching knowledge. Many young people today think they know all there is to know about how to find a job. However, they do not realize how much they really know until it is too late.
One such book that is invaluable is “The Bookbag Files: How to Get an Expert Job Search Starts & Starts,” by Kevin Keller. This book can be found at Cinco Ranch Library, which is available at your local libraries. In this book, Keller gives valuable information regarding resume writing, interview questions, the skills needed when presenting for an interview, and many other things. Additional resources in this book include his Real Eyes column that appears on the Cinco Ranch website. This article was written as a guideline to help you with your own Real Eyes interview questions.
If you are a new graduate, you may be wondering how you should go about reading this book. That is easy enough. You simply need to familiarize yourself with the job-search terminology. The terminology included herein is not the same as you will find in most books about job-searching or on the Internet. The information presented is specific to the labor market.
If you do not know many phrases like “prospecting,” “job-searching” or “last-minute deals,” you should research them, as Keller provides many such phrases throughout the text. There are also helpful glossaries throughout the text. Because it is important to read and learn from this text, I have broken the text down into several categories. These categories are Management, Sales, Customer Service, Executive, Marketing, and Financial Accounting.
Management Tips is probably the most valuable information in the book. It covers areas such as problem solving, vision, marketing, finances, and staff development. This book provides excellent material on how to conduct quality business meetings, including effective opening statements, a budget, an exit strategy, and keeping goals and objectives clear. You will also get valuable information on the use of presentations and scripts.
The topics covered in this book on sales are important and well worth the investment. When you sell, you must be able to put a price on your products or services. The goal of marketing is to attract buyers to your product or service. The information in this book on sales strategies helps you evaluate what your competitors are doing and build a plan to be competitive. Additionally, some useful information on cold calling is also provided. This information is important for maximizing your sales efforts.
As a former financial planner, I found this book very interesting and helpful. This book teaches you the basics of investing for a living, including savings, money market funds, bonds, and mutual funds. The book also discusses real estate investment, both the pros and cons of using loans for this purpose and different types of mortgages available. The book also gives extensive information on short selling, the mortgage process, and the use of credit cards for borrowing money.
Job Search Survival Tips covers all the material you would need to survive a job search and find a good job in today’s market. It is important to read and learn from this book as it is one of the most important books one can buy. This is a great book to read with other people who have been through the process as it provides a great insight and analysis on what steps should be taken. With the use of this book you will have much more success than if you try to conduct this research on your own.
