The author of The 2-Hour Job Search shows you how to land your dream job, from writing the perfect resume and cover letter to nailing any interview and negotiating your offer.
Steve Dalton's 2-Hour Job Search method has proven to be successful among job-seekers of all stripes, covering the different ways to use technology to efficiently filter through job listings, make key connections, and secure informational meetings with potential advocates. In The Job Closer, Dalton shows how to apply his signature time-saving techniques to the next steps of the job search process.
In his many years as a career consultant at Duke University's Fuqua School of Business, Dalton has found that job seekers overinvest in trivial aspects of the job search, such as resumes and cover letters, when what truly matters is perfecting answers to interview questions like, "Can you tell me a little bit about yourself?" With special frameworks like The 50-50 Cover Letter (300 words maximum, 50% about the employer and 50% about the job seeker) and the 2-Hour Resume (prioritizing objective data about employment history over bulleted subjective data, also known as "accomplishment statements"), The Job Closer helps you hack the simpler steps, leaving more effort available for networking, making meaningful connections in your field of interest, and showcasing your unique talents.
Readable, practical, and easy to reference, The Job Closer is the ultimate guide to avoiding wasted effort and maximizing results on the way to landing the right job for you.
