Written by Roy J. Blitzer, executive and management consultant of more than 28 years' experience, Hire Me, Inc.: Package Yourself to Get Your Dream Job is a guide to selling one's talents, for job hunters of all walks of life. Chapters overview how to assess one's own skills, package onself with concise and effective business cards, a resume, and brochures that won't be ignored, the fine art of networking, using internet job sites to maximum advantage, preparing oneself for the interview including anticipating different interview styles and what to do if improper questions come up--inquiries into one's age, martial status, ethnic origin, religious preference, sexual preference, and disabilities are prohibited by law, yet a direct "gotcha" confrontation over them is not advised prior to being hired; instead, Blitzer recommends a nonconfrontational evasion such as "I'm surprised that came up. How relevant is this to the position?" Sample letters, forms, and template guidelines round out this first-rate self help guide to getting the best out of the job market.
