As a former employer, I am impressed with the research and insight that went into this book. I wish I’d had it when I was interviewing and hiring people for my company. The authors have it right! Readers will learn to think like the employers they want to work for. They will gain the confidence and focus needed to present themselves as an applicant employers want to pursue. A lot of employers and a wide variety of job seekers will benefit from this.

Finally, a job search book that teaches people to think like the employer. More people would be getting hired faster if every job seeker in America understood what this book teaches – that they are hired to make the company successful, that it’s not just about their ability but their overall fit for the company, and that they must make the company more than they cost. If you’re already working, this book can help you keep your job and advance your career.

If you want to change your luck in the job search. Read this book! It reveals insightful secrets and strategies to positively position yourself at the head of the pack.
- Susan Whitcomb, Author, Resume Magic
A glut of job-search and career books floods the market, but most repeat the same information or lack research-backed authority. Finally, MacDougall and Sanders-Park have brought a fresh, new, authoritative perspective to this saturated world of job-search advice — including that on the Internet. Their 6 Reasons model challenges job-seekers’ long-held, but ineffective, practices. Giving employers what they really want seems like such an obvious concept, but candidates rarely grasp the employer’s perspective. All that is poised to change with this revolutionary book. It’s a must for the bookshelf of anyone who ever expects to look for a job.
