My good chum Jill Konrath, has just launched an amazing new initiative, aimed at helping some of the millions of people who now find themselves jobless - through no fault of their own. Here is what she has to say:
Do you have friends who are struggling to find a job? If so, please read ...
...this post because you can help them. Please spread the word too!
In the past six months, too many good people I know have lost their jobs. They were simply at the wrong place at the wrong time, collateral damage in a struggling economy.
To make matters worse, the traditional way (e.g., resumes, info interviews) of finding a job is seriously broken - and most job seekers don't even know it.
That's why I decided to launch the Get Back to Work Faster Initiative - a book, website and free webinar series with a FRESH approach that helps job seekers get back to work much faster, in a position they're excited about that pays them well.
These proactive strategies enable professionals to create opportunities that don't exist today.
FREE COPY: Get Back to Work Faster
It all starts with my new book, Get Back to Work Faster: The Ultimate Job Seekers Guide for Professionals. It'll be out in paperback this fall. However, I know people can't wait! They need jobs now. So ... we're giving it away as a free downloadable PDF file.
In this 170+ page book, job seekers will discover how to:
•Identify and pursue income-producing opportunities.
•Land new positions that play to their strengths.
•Become a "must hire" candidate, without any competitors.
•... and much more!
Best of all, these job creation strategies keep individuals feeling vital, productive and sharp during this challenging time - which is important too!
Help us make a difference. Because of our sincere desire to positively impact as many people as we can, we're giving away the book. We also have a series of complimentary webinars scheduled, featuring top experts on these job creation strategies.
So if you could please help us spread the word:
•Forward a copy of this email to your job seeking friends, colleagues & family members.
•If you know of any job hunters' support groups in your community or church, let them know about GetBacktoWorkFaster.com. Invite them to post it on job boards.
•Write about it on your blog. Tweet about it. Share it with your LinkedIn colleagues. Post info about the free book & webinars on your website. Digg it!
Join us today in helping job seekers "get back to work faster."
Thanks for your support!
JF: Please, please support Jill with this incredibly important initiative - thank you.
