Bill Humbert, dba recruiterguy.com, is a corporate recruiter who has dedicated much of his life to matching talent with employer. In Employee 5.0, he tells the job seeker what it takes to get into managerial roles and corner offices, all in an organized sales system sure to generate job offers in 90 days. If you’ve been spit out of your corner office during downsizing, Humbert shows you how to dust off the uniform and get back on the field.
After a career of reading thousands of resumes, conducting thousands more interviews, and negotiating on every side of the table, Humbert says that one element of a job interview launches it from good to great:
In the book, Humbert asks you to make a list of your “impacts” and create stories around each one. The people who interview you don’t say, “remember her great skirt?” They say “remember that woman who told the great story about doubling walk-up business with her phone?”
Which of the following would you remember?
“I sold 233 units in the first quarter, 233 in the next, 275 in the third and 299 at year’s end.”
“Last year, my final sales were up 33%. so I bought my wife a boat.”
Learn how to sharpen your professional career search skills while creating a warm, human approach to all you encounter on the hunt with Employee 5.0: Secrets of a Successful Job Hunt in the New World Order
The first step to getting that offer is getting them to remember who you are: Tell stories. Not only will stand out from the crowd, you’ll soon be employed.
