Paul Rega is president of a retained executive search firm and a professional recruiter with over twenty-eight years of job hunting and career planning experience. His provocative new book, How To Find A Job: When There Are No Jobs strikes a nerve with millions of displaced workers and goes well beyond the principles of job hunting. Paul introduces a revolutionary concept in career management and personal development called “Intuitive Personal Assessment.” He takes his readers on a powerful journey as he tells a gripping story about his own career and the challenges faced as an executive recruiter, often fraught with personal tragedy. This is a must read for anyone who is looking for a new job or wants to change careers in the worst economy since the Great Depression.
The author shares his vast knowledge of career planning and the inner workings of the job search process, citing hundreds of proven and effective job search techniques. He explains how to market your background to a targeted audience, interviewing skills and techniques, network building strategies, how to utilize personal and business contacts, effective use of social media, including LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter, insider tips on working with headhunters, salary and benefits negotiation, how to write a resume, cover and follow-up letters, how to start and succeed in your own business and much more.
In a message to his readers, Paul believes that despite the many challenges faced by those suffering as a result of the weak job market, change in one’s life can be positive. He explains that, “Change throughout your life is inevitable, and as your life changes so often does your career.” His book is an effective guide that will provide you with the necessary tools, skills and inside knowledge from a professional recruiter to help you navigate through difficult economic times and find a new job or change careers.
“I have known Paul for nearly 20 years where he has assisted me in finding top talent for my team and more importantly, as I faced the turmoil from the inevitable changes in my professional and personal life. The provocative thought and introspection stimulated by these conversations is well represented in this book and should be an eye opener for anyone who thought they understood how to navigate through their professional careers.
“This is a five-star read crafted by someone who understands the job market and what is required to land that next job. My one criticism is that the book is poorly titled because it takes the reader well beyond mere “job hunting” to a gut check on career management and personal development missed by the title. Paul’s practical IPA (Intuitive Personal Assessment) approach will prepare the reader to select the right path and emerge as a much stronger candidate in their interaction with any prospective employer. Anyone looking to prepare to change jobs or re-enter the workplace should make the investment, particularly of their time, to read and employ the techniques and advice offered.”
“Paul Rega’s level of professionalism and service to his clients is unmatched in the industry. In my experience, Paul coached me to a point where I could excel at my interview and ensure a win for my future.”
