Shedding a light of fresh hope to readers, author Luis A. Martinez combines his personal experience and professional background to come up with a handy guide. He lays out a game plan for job seekers and career-confused individuals in GETTING there, his new book released through Xlibris.
A job search is a very difficult process for most people. There is so much incertitude, no clear avenues, and no definitive direction. The process of presenting one’s self to strangers is not only challenging, it is a tedious process that can even get unpleasant at times. Martinez, in this edifying book, offers a remedy for those jitters by discussing the essential factors that should be considered in finding a job. GETTING there conveys how people should first of all focus on what they really want and what they love to do to save them from all other distracting, nonproductive pursuits, and time-wasting activities.
