His hard-hitting topics include: • beating rejection before it beats you • acing interviews • 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.
