Hi Tom,

Finding a job is hard, but there are jobs out there. The challenge for the unemployed person is getting themselves found by the job vacancy.
LinkedIn is the standard place employers and recruiters use LinkedIn to find "Ideal Candidates". To be found on LinkedIn is more than posting a resume. Its about creating a profile that three things happen:

1. The profile comes up during a search on Google and on LinkedIn.
2. The summary that is presented is read by the recruiter or employer and cause the reader to read the profile in more depth.
3. The profile creates in the reader the desire to contact the candidate
4. The candidate is called to start the interview process.

For this sequence to happen, takes a combination of copywriting, Search Engine Optimization (SEO), and Marketing skills. Skills few executives earning over $75,000 a year have this combination of skills.

I have developed a one day course to teach these specific skills for the purpose of the Job Hunter. My course is intended to teach the job hunter how to create a LinkedIn profile that presents the job hunter as "Ideal Candidate" for the job hunter's "Ideal Job".
LinkedIn can help these candidates find a new job. LinkedIn can help them find the job faster.

I want you to help me help these job hunters find jobs. The cost of the course is $349.00 I provide a $50 discount code, to make the cost of the course $299. For an executive making $75,000 their daily salary is $300. Thus the course pays has a one day ROI. A great deal. As part of my marketing efforts, I have allocated $100 for each student referred to me. All payments must be done online and I have an online affiliate program that tracks who introduced me to the job hunter.

You can do as you please with the $100. Some people are keeping it. Some people are giving it as a rebate after the person takes the course, and some people are donating to job hunting places. The money is your to do with it as you please. If you need to have me split the money multiple ways, I can make those arrangements for you.

I am only providing the affiliate program to 50 people currently, as I need the time to get each one up to speed on the program.

I need to support my affiliates, so I can not provide the discount directly to the students and I would prefer that you don't advertise that I am giving you the $100.

The online system has e-mails and articles that you can post on different websites and send out. These articles are advitorial in nature meaning that they provide help to the job hunter even if they don't take my course. This content can be posted on websites or sent out to a general e-mail list that contains job hunters.

I want you to help me. You can sign up at
