Standing out in the job market is more difficult today than ever. Last week, I interviewed Judi Perkins on my radio show. She was one of the best guests I've ever interviewed, and her topic is timely: how to find (and get) the perfect job.
As a former recruiter, Judi set up and followed up on some 17,000 job interviews and reviewed over 500,000 resumes! Her placements ranged from entry level to CEO. She knows what it takes to get hired.
She explains how one of the shortcuts is to get through to the right people. Because applying for positions has gotten so easy, companies are being completely inundated with resumes from job-seekers who basically apply for any and every position that they are even remotely interested in. It’s now gotten to the point where
many companies don’t know how to effectively manage the candidate flow.
That’s where a recruiter can help you.
A good recruiter can make sure you get noticed for the right position.
“Demystifying Headhunters - How to Partner with Recruiters: Everything You Need to Know” is written in a clear, no-fluff style filled with actionable advice for professionals who want to actively manage their job searches and careers.

But instead of using a recruiter most job seekers today opt for the “throw it all against the wall and see what sticks” philosophy in which they send their resume out to anyone and everyone that they can.
However, this approach couldn’t be more wrong.
You’ll waste a great deal of time and money and all you will likely end up with is frustration and disillusionment – instead of your perfect job at the top of your salary range!
Unfortunately, very few people on any level today really understand what recruiters do, how they do it (or why they ask so many questions before they'll tell you much at all.)
But that’s all about to change thanks to Judi Perkins’s new book, “Demystifying Headhunters - How to Partner with Recruiters to Find Your Perfect Job: Everything You Need to Know About Attracting, Choosing, and Working With Recruiters (with lots of valuable information even if you’re not).”
This book is filled with everything you need to know to find the right recruiter – the recruiter who can help you land your perfect job.
Not planning on working with a recruiter? This book is also jam-packed with job search tips you can use to find your perfect job on your own!
Demystifying Headhunters - How to Partner with Recruiters to Find Your Perfect Job, helps you figure out how to find a recruiter, the best way to work with them, and then puts you in the mind of a recruiter so that you can establish a good relationship with them. Before reading this e-book, I thought recruiters were just for CEOs, but this information can help people at the managerial level (like me), and even those who may be working with temp or permanent placement agencies. This is not information rehashed from other books or websites; it offers new insights on how you think of presenting yourself and on how to use a recruiter to your advantage. Read it!

I’ve reviewed this book, and found it to be very well written and educational. Even though I am not in the job market, I found myself wanting to learn more of Judi’s strategies. Her expertise really shines through. Judi was a guest on my radio show on May 13, 2011. You can listen to her podcast here.
