Pasadena, CA (PRWEB) December 27, 2008
Most executive-level professionals believe that it is extremely difficult to land a high-paying job in this downturn. Employment Authority, on the other hand, reports that contacting employers directly is the best way to get a job in the current times. The company, initiated by A. Harrison Barnes, is a career marketing service that researches employer contacts inside of top corporations and other employers and assists high-income executives in initiating targeted mailings to those employers.
"With career advancement as the goal, Employment Authority assists executives, managers, and professionals alike," says A. Harrison Barnes. "By preparing polished resumes, providing the tools to conduct targeted mailings, as well as giving informed counsel and support, we match our clients' qualifications and career goals to companies that can offer them the jobs they've been looking for."
The job market has been subjected to quite a many swings this year, with dismal job reports and continuous layoffs. According to Bob Gerber, the author of An Easier Way to Change Jobs, "Job hunting success depends 70% on marketing and interviews and 30% on background and ability." This translates into: (1) knowing where to direct one's mailing, (2) mailing sufficient volume to achieve desired results, and (3) having a really good cover letter and resume.

Barnes adds, "We believe that our service is the most effective service in existence for ensuring our clients have the market "covered" in all respects. Our service assists job seekers in finding many of the most competitive jobs available in the market that they will not find on job boards or through recruiters and we believe that recruiters and job boards are a useful adjunct to our service."
