About the author

I am a career-advice writer and consultant who loves helping people discover their ideal career.

I am one of few freelance career-advice writers who is also a career practitioner who works with clients. I use thoughtful analogies infused with storytelling for readers to learn and apply. Readers want to know simple steps to success, avoid the snags and snares, and how to find the best resources.

Today's job seekers need several strategies to apply in-season and out-of-season, including constant networking, learning and development, and documenting their successes. It's a mistake to disengage from managing your career. It will only land you lightyears behind your competition.

In my consulting with job seekers, I use practical strategies sprinkled with empathy to clarify their career paths according to their values, lifestyles, and skills. I ensure their experience in working with me is enlightening and meaningful -- equipped for the long term. Why should you use a consultant every time you need to find a job?

My award-winning blog, "The Voice of Job Seekers," has offered job-search advice since 2011. My ear is to the ground listening to clients and career professional colleagues, and vigilant in noticing trends. My award-winning podcast by the same name still offers sage job-search advice after 200 episodes.

As a writer, I regularly contribute to large career websites such as Payscale, FlexJobs, and Recruiter.com.

Synopsis

Job seekers want to know one piece of job search to fix everything. Those of us coach and consult with job seekers for a living will oblige with an answer. Often it won't work for several reasons:
1) They don't share the whole story (many times we don't have time to hear it)
2) Professionals just want to tweak their resume - anything else is too much
3) Similarly, they don't want to do the real work
4) Introducing me to a mate doesn't mean I win them over. I can refer you to an employer, but it doesn't get you the job. Get it?
5) Most job seekers want the easy way such as a magic wand, a magic pill, or the watershed moment.
6) That one magic skill to reach "the next level."

I've written more than 500 published articles offering advice on how to get the next job. My advice has been published in dozens of online publications, books, and magazines. I've coached and consulted with hundreds of job seekers. I can tell you job search advice is only as good as its implementation. Few can only give perfect advice, and the rest is up to us to tweak and customize to the employer's needs. I expect you to read this book in hopes you'll create your own path to an employer's heart.

Babe Ruth had pitching coaches to help him pitch successfully for a time. Then other teams became more successful at hitting his pitches. None other than his future wife showed him he tipped off what kind of pitch he was going to throw when he stuck his tongue out.

One small pivot. One gigantic career success story. I can't promise you a small pivot will be sufficient, but the right ones will bring you more possibilities.

Why support this book?

  • According to the World Economic Forum 2018 survey, by 2022, no less than 54% of all employees will require significant re- and up skilling. No longer can professionals rely on their employer to help them update or learn the needed skills.
  • Hundreds of professionals think people need just a resume tweak to gain traction in their job search results. Out of the hundreds I've coached, they need more than one.
  • "Your podcast is extremely valuable to all careerists, from job seekers, to folks managing and wanting to rev up their careers, to leaders, to small business owners, and well, to ANYone! your commitment to a consistent, quality message is impressive." ~Jacqui Barret Poindexter, Master Resume Writer

1106 Design provides book design, production, and publishing services for independent authors who seek all the quality of traditional publishing without forfeiting their rights and royalties in return. 1106 Design provides traditional publisher quality with one-stop, end-to-end services from copyediting to worldwide distribution. We operate just like a publisher with one difference: YOU maintain complete control of your book, your schedule, and most importantly, your payments.

In our model, distribution accounts are set up in your name. When a book is sold, the retailer takes a cut, the printing cost is deducted, and the balance is deposited directly into your bank account, never ours first. The difference can amount to several more dollars per book in net revenue to you. Our most popular package for non-fiction books, 50,000 words and under, including copyediting, cover design, interior layout, proofreading, eBook formatting, and distribution set up in your name is just $7,353. Fiction titles are slightly lower, $6,488.

Need a different solution? Let's talk! We'll customize our services to your exact needs. At 1106 Design, we love helping authors release great books! If all of the above interests you, please respond with your email address and/or telephone and we'll reach out to answer all your questions. We hope to hear from you soon.
