Usable Insight – Great new book! “Never Apply for a Job Again”
I Want You to Meet Darrell Gurney, Award-Winning Career Expert for Folks Who Want to Break the Rules.
I want you to meet a down-to earth and approachable guy who is an agent of transformation and inspiration for people around him.
Darrell Gurney didn’t know anyone when he came to LA, yet within 2 months he had private personal meetings with top executives in Hollywood and landed a studio job completely bypassing Human Resources.
Sound impossible? You’ll be inspired when you learn how you can do it too!
Job creation may still be slow in this economy, but you need to know that jobs CAN BE FOUND even today when you think differently than the masses. Plus, these same principles work for landing new clients and even starting an entrepreneurial venture.
No one knows better than Darrell Gurney how to coach people to tap into the power of relationships and backdoor connections to make career leaps forward.
At age 24, knowing not a soul in Hollywood, he used a “stealth networking” approach to conduct personal meetings with the heads of finance of the top 7 movie studios…thereby landing a role in the highly competitive entertainment industry without Human Resources even knowing his name.
He was young and fresh out of college and a total transplant from Texas to Tinsel town. Yet, he employed a method that he has now taught to not only students, staff and professionals of all levels, but doctors, lawyers, non-profit directors, corporate executives and TV producers. Across the board, it works for everyone who works!
”Never Apply for a Job Again: Break the Rules, Cut the Line, Beat the Rest“ reveals exactly how he conducted his own “stealth campaign” for opportunities and how anyone—using the same principles of human psychology and calling on the natural good favor of others—can propel their own careers forward.
This is a real guy with real methods used by real people that can help you and those you know get excited again about being in charge of your career possibilities…in spite of this economy!
Everyone has heard that “it’s not what you know, but who you know.” This book is the HOW-TOs to the WHOs!
Easy-to-read and follow, “Never Apply for a Job Again: Break the Rules, Cut the Line, Beat the Rest“ teaches about the power of relationships and using backdoor strategies to land new opportunities rather than using the same front-door approaches used by the masses (e.g., posted jobs, classifieds, typical client development methods, etc.). By doing things contrary to everyone else, you’ll learn how to:
⇒ Break outside of limiting “rules” by which you unconsciously live regarding networking
⇒ Meet, be memorable, stay top-of-mind, and maintain connections with influential door openers
⇒ Employ 10 time-tested principles for launching an effective “stealth” career campaign
⇒ Have your fascinations and passions lead to research and relationships
⇒ Network like a pro, even if you’re an introvert!
⇒ Engage the power of others’ ego for your own best interests
⇒ Conduct backdoor meetings to gain massive referrals, mentors and opportunities
Darrell wakes you up to the fact that 80% of all jobs are filled before they are ever advertised…and tells you the way around that fact!
Seriously, his book is an amazing and inspiring way to get yourself on track to the career you want, to feeling good about yourself and your future, and to fulfilling your purpose. Find out more here:
