“Get Recruited is about driving change in your job search to become the hunted instead of the hunter. I chose to focus on providing tips and actionable strategies that people can use much in the same way that business use to brand themselves”, says Graham.
In Get Recruited, Graham offers her no-nonsense, step-by-step style to educate job seekers to stay ahead of the competition in today’s ever-changing business environment. Graham explains the most dangerous obstacles a person faces in a job search are failure to be adaptable to change, fear of technology, ego, and lack of a leverageable network. “Finding a job is no longer about checking the want ads or job boards and applying to whatever looks appealing, or waiting on the phone to ring because you’re ‘that damned good’. You have to be strategic and proactive to find the right opportunities, but you must be branded to have opportunities find you”.
Each chapter is filled with sobering exercises and actionable strategies to help you build personal brand awareness to have recruiters come looking for you. The book focuses on a combination of social media, networking, skills building and good old-fashioned marketing know how to help you stand out from the crowd. The beauty of this book is that it is suitable for college students to seasoned executives. In an ever-changing landscape of high unemployment, diversification is good, and it’s an advantage to know not only what recruiters are looking for, but how they’re looking.
