New Book for Job Seekers Features Innovative Strategies to Get Hired
Job layoffs, a competitive job marketplace, and hiring freezes have put a lot of pressure on job seekers to stand out and be noticed. Those concerns should be alleviated by Tell Stories, Get Hired, a new book which demonstrates how job seekers can leverage their stories to convince hiring managers and recruiters to hire them over their competitors.
Daisy Wright, author of the Canadian best seller, No Canadian Experience, Eh?, collaborated with 17 professionals with varying backgrounds from Canada, the US, England, Belgium and France, to develop this new book – Tell Stories, Get Hired. “I value their contributions because, without their collective expertise, this project would have remained a dream,” Wright said. All contributors faced obstacles as they sought to gain employment, advance their career, or break new grounds, but their resilience and ability to tell their stories brought them success.
Wright continued “Storytelling is the new job search craze, and job seekers and career changers need to learn how to dig deep, uncover their stories and get hired. Many people never thought of storytelling as a job search tool, but stories are effective in getting to the heart of a hiring manager.”
The book features advice on how to create a storytelling resume and biography, prepare interviews, use social media to build a social media job search campaign, and learn how to network and build professional relationships. Readers will learn job-hunting techniques to help them tell their stories, make an impact, and get hired.
While there are many books providing career or job search advice, Daisy Wright gives new – and much broader – meaning to the term “job search,” demonstrating that the way to the hiring manager’s heart is through storytelling.
