HOW TO SELL YOURSELF INTO A JOB

 

Successful Job Hunting Using Sales 

and Marketing Know-How

 

By: Dr. Ray Mesluk



 

Throw away your resumé!

 


If you are timid - put this book back on the shelf now! If you refuse to join the lemmings that are surging, mindlessly towards the edge of the cliff, then read!

 

Also, if you're exhausted from "resumé-itis"; from endless interviews or from humiliating rejections, maybe it's time to try a new approach - try selling yourself into a job!

 

Even if you're new at the job search game and your teacher, father, school chums, Great Uncle Fred, Aunt Sally and your pet parrot have all told you to write a resumé - then think again - there could be a better way that will lead you right into a job... no resumé... no rejections!

 

After all - what is the employer looking for? He or she has a need (whether or not they are aware of it) and if you have the solution - you get the job... without a resumé!

 

This approach worked for Dr. Ray Mesluk. It can work for you. Let him show you how.
