WHY I WROTE THIS BOOK
I’ve worked in marketing and business management forever - for large companies like Johnson & Johnson, Nestle, Frito-Lay, CBS and Mission Foods, and smaller entrepreneurial companies like Skinny Snacks and Biovideo.
I’ve screened thousands of résumés, interviewed hundreds of job candidates, hired scores of employees, and have mentored at least thirty college interns.
I recently started teaching Marketing and Branding at several local universities, and discovered that my bright, talented students didn’t have a clue how to find and land a job after graduation. So I wrote this book to give them – and you - the tools to find the perfect job – fast.
