Troy, Mich. – Todd Palmer is a renowned thought leader and top staffing and recruiting executive who is committed to improving lives. As a successful leader who has spent years building up a multi-million dollar recruiting & staffing firm, Palmer is now setting his sights on even loftier goals – helping others find meaningful work and expanding their career opportunities through the release of his new book.
Just in time for December graduations or those New Year resolutions that involve a job change or career growth, Palmer’s debut book, “The Job Search Process”, provides a practical, targeted guide to landing a new job in only 30 days. This latest work has already been nominated for both the Axiom Book Award and the Ben Franklin Business Book Award for 2016.
In this career primer, Todd reveals the secrets that prevent many job seekers from landing a new position, while providing a call to action for all career-minded people:
“Most people have blind spots when it comes to looking at themselves, their skillsets, and their job expectations. Jobs are closely tied to our identity, and often have a great impact on our self-worth. My goal is to help each and every job seeker overcome their fears and concerns, and attain the job they desire.”
In my book, I teach people the basics, not just the WHERE, WHAT and WHEN, but the HOW:
* How to find job openings
* How to write a resume
* How to excel in the interview and finally
* How to “get” the job
I also provide them with a Killer close, guaranteed to get almost any job.”
“The Job Search Process” is a very practical tool for becoming more self-aware, while maximizing job search efforts, preparing for interviews and landing that prized position. As an expert in staffing and recruiting, the author knows what it takes to be successful from both sides of the interview table.
Palmer notes, “I tried to write a book that is easy to understand and gives people a simple process to follow. It’s a culmination of everything I’ve learned from a successful career in helping people find and land the job they really want.”
