Why Recruiters Should Care About My New Job-Seeker Book

I was going to announce my new book ("The Job-Seeker's Guide to Resume Search Optimization and the Internet-Age Resume") here, but then I thought, "Dan, why does a bunch of recruiters care about your job-seeker book?!"

The good news is that I answered myself. Okay, maybe that's bad mental health news, but it's good news for you.

The basic idea of this book is that it helps job-seekers update their resumes so that they can be found in the endless number of candidate search engines out in the world today. For instance, Monster, LinkedIn, and the candidates' own web page are places where searches take place.

Oh, and your candidate database.

Now, this may only apply to you if you are a recruiter at a bigger firm, but if you get paid for the candidates that you manage whenever they get found and placed by any of your colleagues, this could be a big help. The better that your colleagues, who don't know your candidates, can find your candidates, the more money you make.

If you're in that situation, then it might make sense to either send your candidate to the site below so that they can optimize their resume for your benefit or just go there and buy a copy yourself and send it to 'em. I know you're all generous that way...

The site (and location where you can take a look at some of the free chapters) is:

Those aren't tentacles, though they look like it when it's small like that.

Those are actually fiber optic cables. Perhaps "Techno-Tentacles"....
