As a highly-paid Silicon Valley corporate recruiter, Jim Rocca got to know the kinds of candidates who did great interviews and got jobs—and those who didn’t. Rocca distills his insider secrets on the hiring process into a just-published book, Job Hunt Like A Predator: Building the Job Hunter of the Future.
“With so many people struggling to find work now,” says Rocca, “I wanted to share the headhunter’s tactics for getting jobs and making the most of your career—how to target employers, find hidden jobs and take control of your job interview to set up not just your job, but your career."
“It’s about taking control of the process.” says Rocca. The book centers on the proactive interview technique Rocca developed observing hundreds of candidates especially executives “under fire” in interviews with Silicon Valley’s best hiring managers. “I show them how to direct their job interview so they are working with the hiring manager to grow the department, creating value, tie themselves to the new plan and securing a second interview before they’ve finished with their first.”
Rocca’s book covers the spectrum of the job hunt, from leveraging social and professional networks and using SEO for self-marketing, to understanding offer letters and negotiating the best deal.
Rocca lays out a comprehensive career matrix and job advancement technology he developed over years counseling others in career selection and job-skill development. “Getting the job is important, especially in this down market. But it doesn’t end there. I felt a need to put a new hire into a position for rapid advancement—to make them a force in the company and industry through strategic skills deveolpment. Job Hunt Like A Predator is the only job hunting book that shows the job candidate not only how to get the job, but how keep it.”
Job Hunt Like A Predator: Building the Job Hunter of the Future has just been released in a Kindle e-book addition by Amazon http://www.amazon.com/dp/B009HEKO8I and will be available in print in 60 days.
