Use Your Head To Get Your Foot In The Door

I just saw this interview with author Harvey McCay on the Larry King Show. Harvey recently released his book, "Use Your Head To Get Your Foot In The Door," aimed at helping people find jobs today in today's economic landscape.

Some highlights from the interview:
  • There are 6.3 million Americans that have been out of work for at least 6 months according to the Bureau of Labor Secrets.
  • The biggest mistakes job seekers make is not learning about the person giving the interview before the interview. They Google the company, but do not get to know the people at the company. People buy from people. Take the next step and get to know them when you are preparing for an interview.
  • The best thing you can do right after you lose your job is to volunteer.
  • Learn to accept that rejection is not permanent. The example Harvey gives is of his best friend Lou Holtz, who was fired from the University of Arkansas. Instead of going crazy and suing the school, he changed his attitude, realized that the rejection was not permanent and wound up coaching Notre Dame for a Hall of Fame-esque coaching career.
