From the Author:

My guide focuses on the unique needs of admin professionals!
The Complete Job-Finding Guide for Secretaries and Administrative Support Staff really gives you a behind-the-scenes look at the hiring process from the other side of the desk: I spent six years as a contingency recruiter (headhunter) placing admin professionals in Corporate America before joining the ranks of human resources management. Therefore, you'll get a bird's eye view of the hiring process by reading the hiring manager's and headhunter's game book.

Specifically, we'll address researching the dominant and growth-oriented companies in your neighborhood to launch your job-search campaign and employing senior management resume writing techniques to make your resume and cover letter stand out from the pack.

Then we'll address key interviewing strategies and challenging questions as documented in my other book, 96 Great Interview Questions to Ask Before You Hire (1997) -- a hiring guide for managers.

Finally, we'll roleplay how to negotiate a salary offer and signing bonus as well as evaluate the total comp and benefits package at a prospective employer before saying yes to an offer. (And don't forget the critical importance of contacting your prior references to ensure that the feedback they provide a prospective employer will increase the chances of your landing the job. After all, going about a job search campaign without having confirmed your own past references is like having a loose cannon on the deck of your ship!)

It's a start-to-finish hiring guide for all office professionals: administrative assistants, staff accountants, office managers, receptionists, bank tellers, sales associates, and more. The Guide will change your view of the hiring process by allowing you to wear a headhunter's and HR manager's hat for a while. With targeted companies in hand, an outstanding resume, and heightened sensitivity to the needs of the folks on the other side of the hiring desk, it should help you stand out as a rarity among your peers.

Best wishes in your hunting efforts!
