A Hiring Manager's Perspective
"Operation Lily Pad" is more than just a basic job hunting "how-to" guide. Instead, this book is designed to enable veterans to realize there is more to job searching than just crafting a resume and following the cookie-cutter template of preparation! This insightful book dives deeper into many seldom – or lightly discussed factors – impacting job hunting such as hiring biases and stereotypes, job hunting preparation and strategy, where to look (to include the hidden job market), professional branding, networking, negotiating offers, and even how hiring managers evaluate and make hiring decisions. And yes, resume optimization, cover letter customization, LinkedIn profile (i.e., social media) preparation, and interview approaches and techniques are also covered. This is a must-have guide for all veterans who are transitioning into civilian and professional life!
