YOU ARE ONLY PERFECT TWICE - AT BIRTH AND ON YOU'RE RESUME
The Insiders Guide on Changing Jobs (A Career Survival Book)
- Author Larry Dillon

Accepting a job offer is not the end, but just the beginning of the next job search.
- Larry Dillon

Competition is the motivator for corporate executives and professionals; it fuels their working lives. They compete in the service of their companies against other companies, and they compete for their jobs against the people who work beside them. The entrepreneurial drive to achieve ultimately separates winners from losers. Personal and professional achievements are short-lived, forever spurring the clamor for more self-motivation, more energy, and more creativity to excel. Success in work is gained through learning life's sometimes painful lessons of trial and error. Larry Dillon, a senior executive recruiter, has developed a highly workable approach to deliver everything you need to know to advance your career.

The sooner you understand how the system works, the quicker you can put the system to your advantage. For 25 years, Dillon has recruited numerous successful executives and to date, has never had a placed candidate fail in a position due to his ability to assess and match talent to positions. His career building wisdom fills this book, taking you deep inside the recruiting profession to understand the meaning behind the questions and the answers that can put you behind the desk.

This book explains the two common approaches to career searches: the shotgun approach of chasing everything, and the targeted approach to defining and pursuing the right opportunities for you. Both might work, but the one has a significantly higher success rate.

Career books can be boring and tell you what you already know or have heard hundreds of times. They offer little to help you distinguish yourself from the masses. You're Only Perfect Twice - At Birth and On Your Resume, is different. It's a fast-paced, to-the-point, engrossing, and at times amusing read.

Changing jobs is a game. You have to play to win. "If you can't find a job using this book, you may not be employable." Every technique is covered... from adroit handling of your personal contacts, to sophisticated networking, to persuasive letter and resume writing, to successful interviewing on the phone and in person. This book addresses the taboo subject of ageism, as well as appearance and perception, including every conceivable aspect of dealing with recruiters. Indeed, if you take the right steps now, recruiters will notice you and consider you seriously for their attractive opportunities throughout your career. The key to remaining successfully and happily employed is to always be perceived as the perfect solution to a recruiter's needs. This book tells you how to do just that.
