This review is from: Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Tap Into the Hidden Job Market using Social Media and 999 other Tactics Today (Paperback)

Let me start off by saying, “This book changed my life!”

Here’s my story:
On March 7, I lost my job as a National Sales Manager. My husband is a stay-at-home dad, so our stakes were greater than most. The following day I began applying for positions on career builders, linked in, Monster. I even paid to have my resume posted on The ladders. (which was a total waste of money) Every morning began the same, 7 a.m. I began applying, 7 p.m. I sent my last for the day. Not knowing any better, I was working with an extremely long 4 page resume, even at 30 years of age.

On June 9th I found out that I had been passed over for a regional Sales Management role, a role that I didn’t want for any other reason except for the pay check. Devastated, I went to my local library to hide my shame and look for answers. Up until this point, I had been on 4 interviews in 3 months. The calls just weren’t coming in like they had in the past. It was during that very trip to the library that I stumbled upon the 1st version of Job hunters. After reading the reviews online, I decided to spend the $13.17 to buy the updated Guerrilla Marketing for Job hunters 3.0 e-book on Amazon.

Determined not to waste any time, I began reading. By Sunday, 36 hours later, I had read the book and begun the process. I felt the urgency, the clock was ticking, day & night. I followed the book step by step, reading and re-reading, like a mad-woman on a mission. By Monday, June 13, 2011 I had written my Guerrilla resume, updated my extended resume, (For content purposes only) created my cover letter and posted my resume. I spent the following week networking and completing profile after profile. It wasn’t until the week after, June 27-July 1st that the calls from potential employers started coming in. Let me tell you, I was ear-to-ear smiles, from the moment I woke up until the time I fell asleep. I was doing something that was making a difference, and it felt GREAT! I knew it wasn’t “If” anymore, it was just a matter of “when”. 19 days from the first time I laid eyes on the job hunters bible, I had 3-4 interviews a day scheduled for over a week out.

On June 29th my #1 company, of my Top 10 (You’ll learn what this is in the book) called me for an interview. They were so anxious and happy to have finally found me that they scheduled the 1st & 2nd interview at the same time, and they were both scheduled for that very same week!! Long Story short, I’m proud to report that on Tuesday, July 20th I concluded my job search with a bidding war in my favor. I happily accepted the position of Director, National Sales for an increase of $30,000 a year and a starting date of August 1st.

My success wouldn’t have been possible without David Perry, Kevin Donlin and the Guerrilla Marketing team. My only regret is that I didn’t find the book sooner.

Their book gave me the tools to change my future. I hope you have the same success!

5.0 out of 5 stars Timid Job Seekers Have Skinny Kids!!, September 12, 2011

By Skip Freeman “Author ‘Headhunter’ Hiring Secr… (Atlanta, GA) – See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)

This review is from: Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Tap Into the Hidden Job Market using Social Media and 999 other Tactics Today (Paperback)

First review: March 13, 2010
Now, September 12, 2011, 18 months later…

If you are truly serious about finding a new career opportunity, this book is required reading. Don’t do another thing at all in your job search until you have this book in your hands and read it. It is better that you do nothing at all than to do something without David Perry’s guidance, coaching, wisdom and insight.

Do you want a larger paycheck sooner rather than later? If so, invest in yourself. Buy this book. Not buying it will probably cost you thousands of dollars. Buying it will cost you what two Starbucks coffees would cost you. If you had the opportunity to buy David Perry a Starbucks, sit down with him for 3 hours and pick his brain, I bet you would do it. That is what you are doing here…having a “virtual cup of coffee” with the best in the business in job hunting. But it gets even better…with his book you have all of the notes from that meeting, in writing, to review and use over and over again.

So why was I eagerly waiting for the release of “Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0?”

I am a “headhunter.” I do not call myself a recruiter. I do not call myself an “executive search” consultant. I PLACE PEOPLE into COMPANIES. I help companies “hire to win.” I am 100% commissioned in what I do. If I do NOT place my candidate into an open position, I don’t get paid. I don’t eat! I am in the JOB HUNT BATTLE EVERY DAY OF MY LIFE!

Thus, what I do MUST WORK! All too many job hunting books are written by HR professionals and career counselors who will get their salary or get their “career counseling consulting fee” regardless of whether you get hired or not.

SO WHAT DOES THIS HAVE TO DO WITH GUERRILLA 3.0?? In one word, “EVERYTHING”!

I started my “headhunting” business in 2003. I was very good at it. In 2005, I saw Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters in the book store. I read the bio and learned that David Perry is a “recruiter” so I figured I would buy a copy and peruse it. After just a few pages, I was highlighting, paper clipping, taking notes and devouring the book. The very next day I was in the office reshaping the way I did business.

*I learned how to write powerful cover letters and send them to my clients on my candidate’s behalf
*I honed my voice mail scripts
*I started role playing mock interviews with the candidates I presented
*…and the list could go on…

The main point is I learned how to truly differentiate myself as a recruiter. I learned how to be a “guerrilla” and that is when I can say I went from being a recruiter to being a “headhunter.” More importantly, I learned how to powerfully differentiate the candidates I represented so THAT THEY WOULD GET HIRED!!! And they did. I was a top 200 recruiter in the MRI Network out of over 8000 recruiters for 3 years in a row. GUERRILLA WORKS for getting hired.

In 2009, I started building my firm and started hiring people to work for me. The first book I went to buy for training my new people was Guerrilla and to my dismay, it was “out of print.” I panicked. But with a few clicks, I quickly discovered that, in just another few weeks, Guerrilla 2.0 was coming out. I pre-ordered 7 copies.

When the book landed in my office, we all did a deep dive. That year our entire recruiting firm, with rookies, billed close to a million dollars by PLACING PEOPLE.

So you can see why I couldn’t wait to read 3.0.

David teaches you HOW TO PLACE YOURSELF…HOW TO RISE ABOVE YOUR COMPETITION AND WIN THE JOB YOU WANT instead of letting it go to someone else.

If you get 3.0 and don’t get anything from it, I want to know why. (You can find it under my profile on LinkedIn.)

Yes, his methods are different. Yes, they can be scary. Yes, you initially will be nervous using them. Guess what!? I have made money using them and you will too….HOW? You will get hired and get your paycheck!!

And here is the best part…he tells you exactly what to do. You aren’t left guessing. So unless you are retired or planning on retiring this year, you need this book. Whether you are an introvert, extrovert, salesperson, engineer, manager, accountant, lawyer or just graduating from college, this publication is required reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you want/need a job – get this book and follow the instructions!!, November 20, 2011

This review is from: Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Tap Into the Hidden Job Market using Social Media and 999 other Tactics Today (Paperback)

I was 8 months without a job and tried everything “old school” to find a job – no luck!! But you know what – as Gary Player said “The harder you work, the luckier you get!!” Yes, LUCK does play an important part in you getting a job – BUT how do you get “lucky” – stay focus here – I’m talking about JOB HUNTING!! To really stand out from the crowd – as we business types learned from school – you have to “differentiate”, be different from the crowd/masses, it could be the “coffee invitation” or a special report you found that would help the company. Great, so how do you “be different” and get “luckier” with your job hunting amongst the tens of thousands out there?

This guide shows you the step by step way to “market” YOU!! You’ll learn and apply different approaches to not only the traditional ways of job hunting but also what the current trends are and how to use the latest online platforms to add ammunition to your arsenal to hit your target dream job!!

As I mentioned above, I was out of work for 8 months and I have heard from other people who are still looking after 12 months, 18 months, 24 months….it’s a very sad situation indeed!! Having been thru to the process – I cannot emphasize enough the need to be different – I got this book around mid-May 2011. Before getting this, I had already rewritten my resume of 4 pages a million times and had the 2-page, 3-page 4-page versions for all kinds of different roles. The “shot gun” approach!! Nothing worked!! So, instead of hitting my head against the same brick wall and hoping for a different result – I decided to apply the “rules of engagement” from GMJH 3.0!

My 1-pager resume started to get noticed and even though I didn’t get offers straight away – recruiters were calling back – YES, they were calling back!! – saying how great the resume looked and how concise the information was which really helped them to understand what I was looking for and my skill sets. I wasn’t getting many call backs from the “coffee” invitations but I thought it was early days and just kept going and moving onto new contacts, A couple of weeks passed with similar feedback and then boom I was called in to talk to a number of financial institutions and some startups – these were my target groups! Another week went by and I got the job offers – not a huge amount – but hey, all I needed was 1 offer – right! Well, I actually had a number of offers to choose from!

So did the book helped me find a job – that’s a YES!!! But it’s not a book – it’s a guide to help you plan, structure and attack the daunting task of finding your next job! It’s the blueprint to a campaign that you will need to take to heart and make real! It’s the action plan that YOU have to work on day in and day out to you achieve the results you are looking for! Yes, it’s hard work and cannot and must not delegate it to recruiters or online jobs sites – just because you think you have uploaded your resume there. It’s not a silver bullet to your solution but I think the book is worth much much more than anything you can place a value on. It directs you to new ways of thinking, new approaches to present yourself in a new way, it asks you to take risks that you would never do or even know how to start doing.

Now sitting on the other side of the hiring table, I can see from the scores of resumes arriving from job seekers all the things GMJH tells you not to do. I do get back to the applicants and when not asking them into the interview, I ask them to review their resume and get and use the GMJH 3.0 approach.

So I do believe you can create your own luck as Gary Player said, I would add that you not only work hard but find a way to work with new tools and one of the best tools around to help you is GMJH 3.0!

Jay and David thank you for sharing your knowledge!

5.0 out of 5 stars From my personal experience I highly recommend this book!, November 8, 2012

By YuliaSee all my reviews

This review is from: Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Tap Into the Hidden Job Market using Social Media and 999 other Tactics Today (Paperback)

While I was looking for my very first job in the USA (I moved here from Russia several months ago) and my 2-month job search was not bringing any positive results, I decided to change my approach and look for a job differently. However I was not sure how exactly. Luckily, while I was thinking of changing my job search strategy, my friend sent me a link to a blog post which reviewed the Guerilla Resumes book. The post was telling about a completely different approach to the resume creation described in the book. The statement that such kind of a resume will catch the employer’s attention sounded very inspiring and attractive. Therefore I immediately decided to look for the book on Amazon, read reviews and see how much it costs. I found the latest edition of the book – Guerilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0, and both reviews and price had pleasantly surprised me. Although too many 5-star reviews looked suspicious, I still decided to buy the book hoping that it will help me with some ideas for building a new job search strategy.

The book is quite thick. The language in it is very clear and comprehensive (even for a non-native English speaker like me). The book contains step by step logical instructions of what should be done for a successful job search. There is no unnecessary rambling and needless information. The text font is big enough, so your eyes don’t really get tired of reading the book. A pleasant read, overall.

While reading the book I was simultaneously working on my new job search stage following advice from the book. I was doing all the exercises to identify my strengths and achievements, to list the top companies I want to work for, to create my brand and formulate my objective, to write a completely new resume – a Guerilla resume, to update my social network profiles according to my professional brand, to increase my professional activity online, etc.

In the end of July 2012 I had started sending my new resumes, applying different tactics and ideas from the book. I should say not all of them were applied successfully and not all of them were applied easily. I had to do a lot of things for the first time and therefore to spend a lot of time on preparations, to fight my fears and uncertainty. Looking for a job in a new country and having to speak a foreign language on professional topics as if it was my mother tongue was already a new and stressful experience for me, therefore the need of applying completely new tactics from the book did not make my American job conquest any easier. My job search was a truly my full time job.

On August 1, 2012, I sent my resume to one of the companies I wanted to work for. On August 14, 2012, I was invited to the phone interview. I took one day to prepare for it. I learnt more about the company and industry, about their competitors, about their challenges and opportunities. I practiced the interview with my husband answering questions from the book, answering questions from other sources, preparing my questions, working on my voice, etc. After such thorough preparation the phone interview went flawlessly. After that I was invited to the interview in the company’s office, which was a board interview with my potential team. Although that was not an easy interview, it also went very well. I spent even more time preparing for it. Finally, I was invited to the third board interview, which from my opinion was the hardest one. This interview results I was worried about the most. However, on the 29th of August I received a job offer.

Thus, I have started my Guerilla job search in the end of July, and have received a job offer in the end of August. Just 1.5 months passed from the moment I had started reading the book to the moment I got a job. Although I was a little skeptical about the book in the beginning, I am very happy I gave it a try. Guerilla tactics really work, I have tested them myself! Now I recommend this book to everyone I know who may find it useful. But the most important thing is that I am very happy with the company and the position I received. I could not have wished for a better start to my career in the United States! Thank you, David and Jay!

I was recently told my role was going to be eliminated. My first thought was to panic but a friend at my office suggested this book. As soon as I began reading it my anxiety was reduced. Every step of getting your job search going is clear and concise. The resume samples are outstanding! I followed how to set up my resume and my outplacement team loved it. The outplacement team has even taken some of the tips I learned from this book and used them. The LinkedIn tips are invaluable…no long seminars to learn all you need, just a short chapter with easy to follow action items. I have no doubt that anyone looking for a position will find one in short order with this book. I have done my research as suggested in the book and I am on to action.

I really enjoyed this book and learned a ton of new techniques I am putting into practice. The section on LinkedIn is priceless and key in this technological age. Moreover, I really enjoyed the advice on cover letters and how to grab a hiring manager’s attention. The authors emphasize how important it is to sell yourself and WHAT YOU CAN DO FOR THE EMPLOYER, not vice versa.

Overall a very helpful read. One issue is there is so much information here that it requires multiple readings. It is more like an encyclopedia than a novel to read on the beach – which is a good thing!

I really enjoyed the material in this book, it lays out a very clear path to follow that will greatly improve your chances of getting a job. It would be great if the authors released another version that is targeted toward students or graduates without work experience. Being a student myself, I still found it relatively easy to follow the book’s advice by adapting the methods to fit my job search context and so far in my search for grad jobs I have received more responses than I ever did before.

I bought this book at the middle of March 2013. I had to scramble to find my next employment due to some set backs with a business deal which I thought would allow me to be my own boss…that didn’t pan out, oh wells. the information provided were incredible. The author suggested that you read through the book once and then apply the idea behind your job search. I tried, but my priority was to not waste anymore time. So I read the chapters and tweaked my approach as suggested in the book. I had to make myself visible all of sudden. I signed up to as many job boards as possible the first couple of weeks, set up LinkedIn etc etc as directed by the book. I wake up early at 7a set and end my search by 2pm. After 3 weeks of intense applying, reviewing and update my own skill and knowledge materials (IT field), focus on my attitude, updating and tweaking my resume, spoke to about 10 recruiters.. I can say by the end of my search I had 3 offers at the end of April and still getting calls from recruiters after I have accepted a position a week ago. I get good remarks with my resume in every phone screening and interview I’ve done. I made it easy for the employer to hire me as suggested in the book. So I’m making it easy for you if you read this post, GET THE BOOK. IT HELPS in every way.

First of all let me start of by saying that this book changed my outlook about the job search process completely and I finally get this process.
I was stuck in a mindless routine of sending the resumes online because I did not know that there was any other way.
The book outlined the complete process, right from figuring out my skills to negotiating the final offer. I have read various books on job search in the last year and I quickly found that most experts were just writing generic interviewing tips. Guerrilla marketing goes into specifics on each step and provides concrete examples that I could apply on day 1.
My favorite parts of the book were how to create content for a guerrilla resume and how to negotiate with the HR.
Needless to say, I have received 100X return on the book within the first month of reading it and I highly recommend it.

This book, Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Tap Into the Hidden Job Market using Social Media and 999 other Tactics Today is a true gem. One of my mentors helped me realize there is a process for everything; be it brushing your teeth or rebuilding an engine. In process analysis one of your first steps is identifying the problem. Most of us as job seekers have fallen into the conventions to such a degree we cannot see what the problem is, or we incorrectly identify the problem as external factors beyond our control: the economy, the industry we trained for, etc. I want to thank Mr. Perry for putting a spotlight on what is in plain sight. Our process was broken thank you for giving us a plan on how to fix it. All that is left is for us to do the things outlined in order to improve and act to make a change. This book does a superb job of illustrating how to put many of the skills we have into practice. Some of may be adept at creating our Brand, here we learn how to put that brand to use. You may demonstrate a keen ability to connect with other and build a network; Mr. Perry gives you the tools to target that skill. This is a definite MUST read!

Yes you must read it!
It is not only the hints, but a complete state of mind or paradigme that the book helps you change : from jobseeker to jobhunter. From improperly active to a fully efficient candidate

Did I get a job yet? No, not yet, but I only got the book last week end

This review is from: Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Tap Into the Hidden Job Market using Social Media and 999 other Tactics Today (Paperback)

Pro’s
I think that this book is useful for people, who used to (or still do) solely apply via job boards or company websites. Its an eye-opener and teaches you to think more strategically about your job search to increase your chances of a) landing a job and b) actually applying for jobs that are a great fit. I must say that it takes some guts to apply the different methods mentioned in this book (because you have to stand up and sell yourself), but I am sure its worth it. I did not score a job yet, but I have only tried some of the tricks twice, so I know myself that there is room for improvement!

The book also contains advise on how to re-write your CV to make it stand out more.
But if you need more help to come up with some selling statements, other books might be more useful, as they are devoted specifically for this purpose (for example “Pitch Yourself: The Most Effective CV You’ll Ever Write. Stand Out and Sell Yourself” by Bill Faust is a very structured approach to finding your strengths. It is extremely detailed though.
Another good book, which I feel balances interview skills as well as how to come up with your strengths well is “Fearless Interviewing:How to Win the Job by Communicating with Confidence” by Marky Stein)

Con’s
The only thing that I didn’t like is that it lacks a bit of structure. There are loads of small tips all over the place (I marked the one’s I found most useful with some flags, my book is full of flags now), so there is no real chronological, step-by-step approach, which I would have preferred. I would still recommend this book to get into the right mind-set and develop a strategy and get some ideas of different guerilla practices.

I’ve been unemployed since I quit my first [teaching] job out of college. I’ve been on Idealist.org, Indeed.com, Monster.com, Linkedin.com, Tweetmyjobs.com — the list goes on and on — to no avail. Needless to say, the process has been demoralizing, and often times I’ve wondered what I was going to do with my life. I’ve even wondered if life was worth living if I was only going to spend it in front of a computer, desperate for a response an application or email. I’m glad that I’ve held on to hope long enough to discover this book. “Guerilla Marketing 3.0 for Job Hunters” is rejuvenating! Even before reaching the first chapter, I was hooked on the book’s electric energy. David Perry and Jay Levinson speak in a positive tone throughout the book, which is reaffirming and appreciated considering the negative air exhaled by the job search. Instead of admonishing me for everything I haven’t been doing in my job search, for example, the authors point to everything I could be doing now that I have the book. It’s only been 2 hours since I’ve purchased the book, but already I’m sensing that I can secure not only a job, but a meaningful, desirable, well-paying career if I continue reading and applying the knowledge set forth in this handy book. Thank you, authors, for writing this bible of sorts!

I have to admit that I haven’t read any other job hunting books, my rating is based on how this book achieves its stated purpose and how much I have learned from it; for which it scores 5/5 from me. This book provides you with not only tips on creating a guerrilla resume, but also provides guidance on every aspect of the job search. Like everyone else, all my past searches have been passive.

I love this book. For those of you who are looking for work or hate the job your already in. This book will guide you. This book will help you get ahead of your competition and stay in the game.

Job broads are not the way to go. This book will teach you how to use LinkedIn, Zoominfo, Facebook and more. You will need these tools for your job search. I love LinkedIn anyway so this is a boast for your profile.

If I were you, I would keep this book a secret from your competitors. I mean it. This book is no joke, and if you are smart (I know you are smart)You will hide this book from them. David Perry is a genius.

Clearly Guerilla Marketing For Job Hunters 3.0 is among the best job hunter books on the market. It covers every aspect of the job search process from the shocking layoff, to the modern resume, to the many ways to seek employment. It does not discount any method of job hunting but does favorite networking approach. The details behind each metod are very useful.

Most helpful are the specific case studies illustrating success stories. Even more helpful are the many links to appropriate websites. We all know about Linked In but David Perry goes into detail about how to use Linked In for maximum benefit. Such less known sites as ZoomInfo are discussed. The book is clearly long on modern approaches.

The section on questions to ask the interviewer is especially valuable by their well thought out style. The job game has changed but Guerilla Marketing For Job Hunters 3.0 is a very valuable tool that takes a positve and clear approach to success.

I’ve read many career development books over the years, but this is the first time I’ve ever taken a moment to stop and review one. This book may change everything you ever thought you knew about job hunting.

Levinson and Perry take the old paradigm for job searches and career development and blow the boxes into a million pieces, building something new and incredibly more relevant and effective in its place. Capturing every aspect of how to leverage social media and “guerilla marketing” of yourself in this brave new world, GM4JH 3.0 takes you on a step-by-step, how-to plan for building your image in this environment to get the job you truly want.

Almost like a military campaign, GM4JH breaks it all down into do-able steps anyone can follow, but each clearly designed for maximum impact. A mix of common sense with surprising insights from the shoes of people who’ve been in this business for a long time, the book is fast-paced, entertaining and inspirational. You’ll find yourself charged up to barge in there and get to work (literally and figuratively). 🙂

I’m going to recommend this book to any and everyone looking to make a job or career change, or even just doing some professional self-exploration and development. Dynamite, “must have” resource.

This excellent book is something I considered worth the investment. I recommended this book to my engineering peers who are getting ready to graduate or graduate without a job lined up. Heck, this book need to be in every student’s hand before graduation! College definitely don’t cover the skill marketing.

A lot of unconvenital strategies/tips may be uncomfortable at first but is really effective once practiced and applied. I struggled for 8 months without any job success, but now I find myself going in the right direction with a renewed optimistic feeling because I got couple interviews this week which I wouldn’t have otherwise.

I was on my 5th Business school visit around the country prepping for my MBA applications when I found Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0 in the Business School library as part of the career focus display.

I have seen the book cover a number of times over the last few months and decided since I had 4 hours to kill I would go through the book at the library and take some notes. Hands down a great starting point for anyone looking to build their online presence. I graduated from grad school from an Engineering school 2.5 years ago and found the job hunt discouraging. I would look at job boards and jobs listed through my career center at my graduate school. All my interviews were garnered from job postings through the career center. I was fortunate enough to land 2 great offers but I feel I have left a lot opportunities on the table after reading Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0.

I plan to purchase the book since my notes are limited and to start utilizing the suggestions on industry research, linkedin use, eresume, blogging and twitter. I will be looking for 2 pre mba internships for the 6 months prior to starting an MBA program so I am excited to start incorporating this book to my search.

This book changed my life. I haven’t had to look for work in over 15 years so I was clueless about the approach I should take in today’s job market. The most important thing this book did for me was change my way of thinking. As soon as I did that, along with going through the exercises in the book, my opportunities changed immediately. I found THE PERFECT JOB using the techniques in GMFJH and was on their radar when the perfect job opportunity came my way. I was able to navigate the entire process from my guerrilla resume to negotiating my salary with confidence. The hiring manager told me that I far exceeded any other candidate and they were so eager to hire me that they fast tracked the paperwork so that I can start asap.

I’ve told EVERYONE I know about GMFJH and a friend of mine has even added this to her suggested reading list for her undergraduate students.

Makes me feel like I am not alone, David is a writer who cares! I highly recommend this book.

Mr. Perry and Mr. Levinson hit a homerun. I’m smart and willing to work hard. Admirable, but insufficient to succeed. Tell a man to swing that hammer with everything he’s got, but not tell him where to hit, and you have a sweaty beast who just wasted a day, and destroyed instead of achieved. Mr. Perry not only told me where to hit, but how to swing. Previously, I spent hours and days spewing many resumes across the country. Perhaps I’m not as wise as you, but by the numbers I expected some interest. Nope. Two days as one of Mr. Perry’s Guerrilla’s, I have an interview, and started receiving soft looks and inquiries.

This review is from: Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Tap Into the Hidden Job Market using Social Media and 999 other Tactics Today (Paperback)

I have been looking for jobs for over 6 months and have had very little luck in the job market. I felt that I had the right credentials for most of the jobs I was applying for, but I just was not being heard by the employers. I was seeking a book that could help me better understand the job market, but what I found in “Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters,” was so much more!
This book gave me the confidence and skills to push forward in the job hunt and be more proactive about actually targeting jobs that I wanted and that were a good fit, instead of just submitting resumes and cover letters to all the jobs I could on job boards.
Each chapter gave a number of helpful tips to improve different aspects of the job hunt. I enjoyed the use of the tag app, that, when scanned sent me to YouTube links from authors in the chapters that gave advice. These links were a helpful visual tool.
What stood out to me most in this book was “how to use social media to your advantage.” I have been a part of LinkedIn for a couple years, but I never used it to my advantage. This book is very detailed and offers great examples from the author’s LinkedIn accounts on how to create contacts and make your profile stand out so people actually contact you!
What I appreciated most about this book were the great networking tips on the industry and company of choice.
I am thankful to the writers for putting this book together and helping me out.

Its filled with practical tips and insights. I read the last night (75% of it, anyway) and from trying just ONE of the tips mentioned in it, I got an email from a hiring manager the same day. I’m yet to finish the book, but that tip alone is worth the price. In addition, the writing style is conversational and easy to read. Its no wonder I stayed up until 5am reading it.

I would recommend that you order the paperback version of this as you can make notes in it, fold it, etc. I got the Kindle version because I wanted to read it right away. I’ll probably order a paperback as well. I just love having a hard copy of a really good book, and this one is loaded with information.

Bottom Line: If you are job hunting, not job hunting, or even if you are happily employed, still read this book! Its a small investment which will definitely pay for itself in no time. Enjoy!

This review is from: Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Tap Into the Hidden Job Market using Social Media and 999 other Tactics Today (Paperback)

Let me start off by saying, “This book changed my life!”

Here’s my story:
On March 7, I lost my job as a National Sales Manager. My husband is a stay-at-home dad, so our stakes were greater than most. The following day I began applying for positions on career builders, linked in, Monster. I even paid to have my resume posted on The ladders. (which was a total waste of money) Every morning began the same, 7 a.m. I began applying, 7 p.m. I sent my last for the day. Not knowing any better, I was working with an extremely long 4 page resume, even at 30 years of age.

On June 9th I found out that I had been passed over for a regional Sales Management role, a role that I didn’t want for any other reason except for the pay check. Devastated, I went to my local library to hide my shame and look for answers. Up until this point, I had been on 4 interviews in 3 months. The calls just weren’t coming in like they had in the past. It was during that very trip to the library that I stumbled upon the 1st version of Job hunters. After reading the reviews online, I decided to spend the $13.17 to buy the updated Guerrilla Marketing for Job hunters 3.0 e-book on Amazon.

Determined not to waste any time, I began reading. By Sunday, 36 hours later, I had read the book and begun the process. I felt the urgency, the clock was ticking, day & night. I followed the book step by step, reading and re-reading, like a mad-woman on a mission. By Monday, June 13, 2011 I had written my Guerrilla resume, updated my extended resume, (For content purposes only) created my cover letter and posted my resume. I spent the following week networking and completing profile after profile. It wasn’t until the week after, June 27-July 1st that the calls from potential employers started coming in. Let me tell you, I was ear-to-ear smiles, from the moment I woke up until the time I fell asleep. I was doing something that was making a difference, and it felt GREAT! I knew it wasn’t “If” anymore, it was just a matter of “when”. 19 days from the first time I laid eyes on the job hunters bible, I had 3-4 interviews a day scheduled for over a week out.

On June 29th my #1 company, of my Top 10 (You’ll learn what this is in the book) called me for an interview. They were so anxious and happy to have finally found me that they scheduled the 1st & 2nd interview at the same time, and they were both scheduled for that very same week!! Long Story short, I’m proud to report that on Tuesday, July 20th I concluded my job search with a bidding war in my favor. I happily accepted the position of Director, National Sales for an increase of $30,000 a year and a starting date of August 1st.

My success wouldn’t have been possible without David Perry, Kevin Donlin and the Guerrilla Marketing team. My only regret is that I didn’t find the book sooner.

Their book gave me the tools to change my future. I hope you have the same success!

5.0 out of 5 stars Timid Job Seekers Have Skinny Kids!!, September 12, 2011

By Skip Freeman “Author ‘Headhunter’ Hiring Secr… (Atlanta, GA) – See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)

This review is from: Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Tap Into the Hidden Job Market using Social Media and 999 other Tactics Today (Paperback)

First review: March 13, 2010
Now, September 12, 2011, 18 months later…

If you are truly serious about finding a new career opportunity, this book is required reading. Don’t do another thing at all in your job search until you have this book in your hands and read it. It is better that you do nothing at all than to do something without David Perry’s guidance, coaching, wisdom and insight.

Do you want a larger paycheck sooner rather than later? If so, invest in yourself. Buy this book. Not buying it will probably cost you thousands of dollars. Buying it will cost you what two Starbucks coffees would cost you. If you had the opportunity to buy David Perry a Starbucks, sit down with him for 3 hours and pick his brain, I bet you would do it. That is what you are doing here…having a “virtual cup of coffee” with the best in the business in job hunting. But it gets even better…with his book you have all of the notes from that meeting, in writing, to review and use over and over again.

So why was I eagerly waiting for the release of “Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0?”

I am a “headhunter.” I do not call myself a recruiter. I do not call myself an “executive search” consultant. I PLACE PEOPLE into COMPANIES. I help companies “hire to win.” I am 100% commissioned in what I do. If I do NOT place my candidate into an open position, I don’t get paid. I don’t eat! I am in the JOB HUNT BATTLE EVERY DAY OF MY LIFE!

Thus, what I do MUST WORK! All too many job hunting books are written by HR professionals and career counselors who will get their salary or get their “career counseling consulting fee” regardless of whether you get hired or not.

SO WHAT DOES THIS HAVE TO DO WITH GUERRILLA 3.0?? In one word, “EVERYTHING”!

I started my “headhunting” business in 2003. I was very good at it. In 2005, I saw Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters in the book store. I read the bio and learned that David Perry is a “recruiter” so I figured I would buy a copy and peruse it. After just a few pages, I was highlighting, paper clipping, taking notes and devouring the book. The very next day I was in the office reshaping the way I did business.

*I learned how to write powerful cover letters and send them to my clients on my candidate’s behalf
*I honed my voice mail scripts
*I started role playing mock interviews with the candidates I presented
*…and the list could go on…

The main point is I learned how to truly differentiate myself as a recruiter. I learned how to be a “guerrilla” and that is when I can say I went from being a recruiter to being a “headhunter.” More importantly, I learned how to powerfully differentiate the candidates I represented so THAT THEY WOULD GET HIRED!!! And they did. I was a top 200 recruiter in the MRI Network out of over 8000 recruiters for 3 years in a row. GUERRILLA WORKS for getting hired.

In 2009, I started building my firm and started hiring people to work for me. The first book I went to buy for training my new people was Guerrilla and to my dismay, it was “out of print.” I panicked. But with a few clicks, I quickly discovered that, in just another few weeks, Guerrilla 2.0 was coming out. I pre-ordered 7 copies.

When the book landed in my office, we all did a deep dive. That year our entire recruiting firm, with rookies, billed close to a million dollars by PLACING PEOPLE.

So you can see why I couldn’t wait to read 3.0.

David teaches you HOW TO PLACE YOURSELF…HOW TO RISE ABOVE YOUR COMPETITION AND WIN THE JOB YOU WANT instead of letting it go to someone else.

If you get 3.0 and don’t get anything from it, I want to know why. (You can find it under my profile on LinkedIn.)

Yes, his methods are different. Yes, they can be scary. Yes, you initially will be nervous using them. Guess what!? I have made money using them and you will too….HOW? You will get hired and get your paycheck!!

And here is the best part…he tells you exactly what to do. You aren’t left guessing. So unless you are retired or planning on retiring this year, you need this book. Whether you are an introvert, extrovert, salesperson, engineer, manager, accountant, lawyer or just graduating from college, this publication is required reading.

This review is from: Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Tap Into the Hidden Job Market using Social Media and 999 other Tactics Today (Paperback)

I was 8 months without a job and tried everything “old school” to find a job – no luck!! But you know what – as Gary Player said “The harder you work, the luckier you get!!” Yes, LUCK does play an important part in you getting a job – BUT how do you get “lucky” – stay focus here – I’m talking about JOB HUNTING!! To really stand out from the crowd – as we business types learned from school – you have to “differentiate”, be different from the crowd/masses, it could be the “coffee invitation” or a special report you found that would help the company. Great, so how do you “be different” and get “luckier” with your job hunting amongst the tens of thousands out there?

This guide shows you the step by step way to “market” YOU!! You’ll learn and apply different approaches to not only the traditional ways of job hunting but also what the current trends are and how to use the latest online platforms to add ammunition to your arsenal to hit your target dream job!!

As I mentioned above, I was out of work for 8 months and I have heard from other people who are still looking after 12 months, 18 months, 24 months….it’s a very sad situation indeed!! Having been thru to the process – I cannot emphasize enough the need to be different – I got this book around mid-May 2011. Before getting this, I had already rewritten my resume of 4 pages a million times and had the 2-page, 3-page 4-page versions for all kinds of different roles. The “shot gun” approach!! Nothing worked!! So, instead of hitting my head against the same brick wall and hoping for a different result – I decided to apply the “rules of engagement” from GMJH 3.0!

My 1-pager resume started to get noticed and even though I didn’t get offers straight away – recruiters were calling back – YES, they were calling back!! – saying how great the resume looked and how concise the information was which really helped them to understand what I was looking for and my skill sets. I wasn’t getting many call backs from the “coffee” invitations but I thought it was early days and just kept going and moving onto new contacts, A couple of weeks passed with similar feedback and then boom I was called in to talk to a number of financial institutions and some startups – these were my target groups! Another week went by and I got the job offers – not a huge amount – but hey, all I needed was 1 offer – right! Well, I actually had a number of offers to choose from!

So did the book helped me find a job – that’s a YES!!! But it’s not a book – it’s a guide to help you plan, structure and attack the daunting task of finding your next job! It’s the blueprint to a campaign that you will need to take to heart and make real! It’s the action plan that YOU have to work on day in and day out to you achieve the results you are looking for! Yes, it’s hard work and cannot and must not delegate it to recruiters or online jobs sites – just because you think you have uploaded your resume there. It’s not a silver bullet to your solution but I think the book is worth much much more than anything you can place a value on. It directs you to new ways of thinking, new approaches to present yourself in a new way, it asks you to take risks that you would never do or even know how to start doing.

Now sitting on the other side of the hiring table, I can see from the scores of resumes arriving from job seekers all the things GMJH tells you not to do. I do get back to the applicants and when not asking them into the interview, I ask them to review their resume and get and use the GMJH 3.0 approach.

So I do believe you can create your own luck as Gary Player said, I would add that you not only work hard but find a way to work with new tools and one of the best tools around to help you is GMJH 3.0!

Jay and David thank you for sharing your knowledge!

By YuliaSee all my reviews

This review is from: Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Tap Into the Hidden Job Market using Social Media and 999 other Tactics Today (Paperback)

While I was looking for my very first job in the USA (I moved here from Russia several months ago) and my 2-month job search was not bringing any positive results, I decided to change my approach and look for a job differently. However I was not sure how exactly. Luckily, while I was thinking of changing my job search strategy, my friend sent me a link to a blog post which reviewed the Guerilla Resumes book. The post was telling about a completely different approach to the resume creation described in the book. The statement that such kind of a resume will catch the employer’s attention sounded very inspiring and attractive. Therefore I immediately decided to look for the book on Amazon, read reviews and see how much it costs. I found the latest edition of the book – Guerilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0, and both reviews and price had pleasantly surprised me. Although too many 5-star reviews looked suspicious, I still decided to buy the book hoping that it will help me with some ideas for building a new job search strategy.

The book is quite thick. The language in it is very clear and comprehensive (even for a non-native English speaker like me). The book contains step by step logical instructions of what should be done for a successful job search. There is no unnecessary rambling and needless information. The text font is big enough, so your eyes don’t really get tired of reading the book. A pleasant read, overall.

While reading the book I was simultaneously working on my new job search stage following advice from the book. I was doing all the exercises to identify my strengths and achievements, to list the top companies I want to work for, to create my brand and formulate my objective, to write a completely new resume – a Guerilla resume, to update my social network profiles according to my professional brand, to increase my professional activity online, etc.

In the end of July 2012 I had started sending my new resumes, applying different tactics and ideas from the book. I should say not all of them were applied successfully and not all of them were applied easily. I had to do a lot of things for the first time and therefore to spend a lot of time on preparations, to fight my fears and uncertainty. Looking for a job in a new country and having to speak a foreign language on professional topics as if it was my mother tongue was already a new and stressful experience for me, therefore the need of applying completely new tactics from the book did not make my American job conquest any easier. My job search was a truly my full time job.

On August 1, 2012, I sent my resume to one of the companies I wanted to work for. On August 14, 2012, I was invited to the phone interview. I took one day to prepare for it. I learnt more about the company and industry, about their competitors, about their challenges and opportunities. I practiced the interview with my husband answering questions from the book, answering questions from other sources, preparing my questions, working on my voice, etc. After such thorough preparation the phone interview went flawlessly. After that I was invited to the interview in the company’s office, which was a board interview with my potential team. Although that was not an easy interview, it also went very well. I spent even more time preparing for it. Finally, I was invited to the third board interview, which from my opinion was the hardest one. This interview results I was worried about the most. However, on the 29th of August I received a job offer.

Thus, I have started my Guerilla job search in the end of July, and have received a job offer in the end of August. Just 1.5 months passed from the moment I had started reading the book to the moment I got a job. Although I was a little skeptical about the book in the beginning, I am very happy I gave it a try. Guerilla tactics really work, I have tested them myself! Now I recommend this book to everyone I know who may find it useful. But the most important thing is that I am very happy with the company and the position I received. I could not have wished for a better start to my career in the United States! Thank you, David and Jay!

This review is from: Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Tap Into the Hidden Job Market using Social Media and 999 other Tactics Today (Paperback)

I just want to give David Perry and Jay Conrad Levinson a big thank you for writing this book. I am happy to say that after using the techniques suggested in GM4JH v 3.0 I was able to land myself a job at a higher income and with better benefits than in my previous job. To put this in perspective when I graduated from college in 2008 it took me three years to land my first full time gig, after three months and a horrible boss and work environment I was fired from my job on January 11, 2012. I will admit I was scared, but I knew I had to look for a job in a different way, after a little bit of Googling I stumbled upon GM4JH, and I devoured it immediately. GM4JH was great I loved the ideas that were presented; I thought the Guerilla Resume was awesome, and the idea of going pass HR (or the enemy as I like to call them) to find work was brilliant.

After researching some of the techniques I decided that I would use the coffee cup caper, a Guerilla Resume, and a QR code included in the coffee cup caper package that would link to my visual resume on YouTube. It took me two weeks to perfect my resume, launch a website, and receive the boxes to mail the packages out. I must admit, my family and friends thought I was nuts when I told them about my approach, they thought it wouldn’t work – but the results proved otherwise. After seeing a posting for two companies that I wanted to work for on Indeed I sent two coffee cup packages out. The one company ignored my resume, but the other company a small startup tech firm immediately responded. The company told me the CEO loved the package, they interviewed me over the phone, scheduled an interview for Tuesday, and the following day I received an offer that was higher than the average pay they would give for a marketing associate and I finally have an awesome job with big potential to grow! GM4JH helped me accomplish in less than three weeks what it took me three years to achieve in finding work the old fashioned way.

Guerillas these techniques work! Don’t change your approach from the methods in this book or if you’re struggling in your search maybe you should add more Guerilla techniques and find something that works for you. These techniques are tough, they will take you out of your comfort zone, but they are worth it! I can’t believe that I would be one of the Guerilla Success Stories that achieved getting a career in three weeks in this economy. But I remained positive and most importantly I believed in the techniques in this book and I applied them. If you follow this radical approach for job-hunting, the Guerilla Approach, I know you will achieve success because if I can do it you can definitely do it as well. I wish all of you the best in your job search, guerillas, this stuff works and I’m living proof of it.

This review is from: Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Tap Into the Hidden Job Market using Social Media and 999 other Tactics Today (Paperback)

The original of most books is usually only tweaked to bring it up to date. In this case, though, Levinson and Perry has had no option but to update the entire work. The impact of the internet, the importance of sites like LinkedIn and the growing use of LI by increasingly wider sections of the job hunting community, left them with little alternative. They have surpassed themselves.

There are only really three definitive texts on Job Hunting. “What Color is Your Parachute” appeals to most sectors though it is certainly most popular with the middle management generalist. “Guerilla Marketing” is probably particularly suited to commercially-minded professionals. “The Senior Executive’s Emergency Job Hunt” is aimed at the more senior bracket.

Taken as a library you’d be hard pressed to think of anything that is not covered.

(REAL NAME)

This review is from: Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Tap Into the Hidden Job Market using Social Media and 999 other Tactics Today (Paperback)

This is the greatest book on winning an interview and on finding work fast that has been written to date.

As a Career Social Media® specialist, my first “Resume Bible” was Jeffrey Fox’s “Don’t Send a Resume”, the first book that promoted an effective “old school” self-marketing approach to winning a job. This builds on Fox’s book, and takes self-promotion online (and in person) to a whole new level.

I had the pleasure of meeting David at a National Career Counselors’ Professional Development Event in Ottawa, this past January 2011, where we each presented our respective sessions on using Social Media to help market job-seekers online. Having taught Career Social Media® to my own clients for the past 4 years, it was rewarding for me to see someone else embracing it in a systematic way to market oneself. Even more impressive was the fact that David promotes Career Social Media® as one of many tools in your job search — he understands that there are many “old school” in-person methods that work, too. This contrasts with many authors/presenters who write on job-seeking/online marketing and who position themselves as the “[LinkedIn/Twitter/Facebook] specialist” on only one Social Media Channel — David “gets” the fact that a job-seeker needs to continually market and sell oneself, using a multi-channel approach.

While you can learn tech-savvyness and marketing techniques from Career Counselors or Online Personal Branders, the fact that David writes from a Recruiter’s perspective is what gives him “street credibility” and a unique perspective of what both employers and head-hunters look for in candidates — would you rather receive advice from a Career Counsellor or from a Recruiter who uses these techniques to source and hire job candidates? Exactly.

While I’ve personally taught these principles for the past 4 years to place my job-seeking clients quickly (e.g. I helped a Newcomer to Canada who was unemployed for 6 months find work in 2 days by using a strategic LinkedIn profile AND I helped another client secure a job offer in 12 hours with only a couple of strategic changes to her online profile), David inspired me to ask more from myself, to get out of my comfort zone, and to improve my own online presence. The end result?

  1. I’ve gone from 2 hits on Google’s 1st 2 pages of organic search results to 14 hits (and growing), alternating with a couple of
    other “Mike DeSousa’s” for the top place.
    2. One recruiter per month calls me
    3. My online recommendations keep skyrocketing (am up to 62 LinkedIn Recommendations and counting, have started on
    Branchout/Facebook, about.me, and my own personal website).

Buy the book – I promise you that you won’t regret it…as long as you use it (David also writes in a super-motivating style that speaks directly to you, the reader, and encourages you to take action). GM4JH is the #1 book that I promote to recruiters, job developers, career counselors/coaches, and job-seekers in all of my seminars/presentations.

Incredible when you realize that this $17 book can possess so much wisdom and secure you a $40,000 to +$100k/year.
Keep up the great work, David.

Best,
Mike

P.S. Several speakers and participants from Geoff Webb’s Toronto unConference for Recruiters (in which recruiters from all over the world use the free — and paid — online programs that David promotes to source “passive candidates”) validated David’s advice.

This review is from: Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Tap Into the Hidden Job Market using Social Media and 999 other Tactics Today (Paperback)

I bought the Kindle version of the book and read it on the computer. I particularly liked the book because it is written from the view of a marketer and recruiter. Rather than recommending the popular job search method of relying on sometimes non-existent network of contacts to find your job, it teaches you how to build your network from ground up. It is a great book for introverts; it is also a good book for people with large networks, taking the next step of teaching people how to leverage that network.

I particularly like the book in that it emphasizes that no one job search method is the “best” or the “worst”. Other than covering the traditional social media way of finding jobs, it touches upon other methods of looking for jobs and teaches the reader of how to weave all of them together. It focuses on social media, but presents it in a balanced way with other job search mentality, methods, and tips.

One thing to emphasize though is the book’s leaning on being useful for people willing to try something new. It emphasizes that job search is an active process – and will show results only if the job seeker is active. This book takes the average job seeker outside of what they normally do – and it can be sometimes stressful. For those that feel debilitatingly uncomfortable carrying on the marketing activity of promoting oneself and finding a job, this book is not worth the money. But for those who is willing to stretch (for some) outside their comfort zone for a job search, this book is worth more than its price.

I purchased the book a couple of months back but really didn’t plug away at reading through it until a couple of days ago. I started implementing a couple of the tactics outlined in the book and so far I’m seeing positive results. I am stepping back from sifting through numerous job boards and am focusing my efforts to the top 10 companies I want to work for and my ideal job. It’s definitely serving as a great guide for me – it’s keeping me from being overwhelmed by the million directions I can take with my job search.

This review is from: Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Tap Into the Hidden Job Market using Social Media and 999 other Tactics Today (Paperback)

I have been unemployed for five months and have filled out over a hundred online applications, having sent out my resume to almost as many companies, with only three interviews and no job offers in sight. Almost giving up, I decided to order a few job-hunting books from Amazon, including Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0. I opened the book…AND FOUND OUT I WAS DOING IT WRONG THE WHOLE TIME! I had been focusing on the busy work of job hunting and thinking I was making progress, when in fact, I hadn’t been answering the hiring manager’s basic question: HOW WILL YOU ADD VALUE TO THIS COMPANY?
This forced me to think of all the times I had actually benefited my past companies’ bottom lines and renewed my confidence in my abilities. I had forgotten my greatest work accomplishment of the last five years until I read an old annual review. I had saved a healthcare clinic $32,000 in two hours by finding and fixing radiology billing errors caused by Medicare! I had left that employer thinking I was no good in that position, even to the point of being burned out, but this book and a few months to clear the air helped me to see my situation in a different and more positive light. It has even shown a shy person like me how to network more effectively through Linkedin.com and other social media.
So, if you are looking for a new job, a new employer, a new career, stop banging your head against the traditional job-hunting wall and ORDER THIS BOOK! I did, and it’s changing everything!

ting for Job Hunters 3.0: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Tap Into the Hidden Job Market using Social Media and 999 other Tactics Today (Paperback)

I believe that this is the first book that someone should get and read(a couple of times) if they are looking to establish a web presence, especially if they are looking for employment. I picked up this book by accident (it was sitting next to a book on resume writing), read it quickly, and then decided to see if it works. As I began to put some of the Guerrilla Marketing techniques to the test, I am finding that these techniques work. I already feel like I have at least tripled the ROI in GMJH 3.0 based on the additional information that I received just from following the a few of the techniques. The free resume review was just a nice touch.

GMJH 3.0 is the book to get and to read as it has the techniques to implement if you want to see results in your internet Job Marketing/Branding efforts.

As I continue to implement more of the techniques, I am confident that I will have more and more results. I will be highly recommending this book to as a starting point for all job seekers that I meet. GMJH 3.0 is Just That Good.

On the hunt for a new gig? Then Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters (GM4JH) is THE complete playbook to have in your job search arsenal. From start to finish, Dave and Jay review step-by-step methods to find your passion, sell your skills and land the job.

Feeling like you can’t wait and need a change now? Then get hungry and turn your search into a quest that MUST be completed in 30 days. “The most important characteristic of the Guerrilla attitude is the penchant for action.” Divided into 4 digestible sections, reading this book will ignite an inferno that will make your first job secondary to your search. And by far the most important section once you’ve developed the Guerrilla mindset is learning how to tap into your network and get in front of the decision-makers fast.

Listen, “things come to those who wait, but only things left by those who hustle.” Buy the book already and best of luck!

As a recent college grad in 2009, I picked up Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 2.0 after reading about it in Fortune magazine. I knew that the old-school advice I was getting just wasn’t going to cut it. I was able to revamp my resume, and guess what? People actually started reading it! This book has totally changed my life! (At least the part of it I spend looking for a job.) I now have Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0 and it is even better! The chapter on LinkedIn is informative, invaluable and makes buying the new edition completely worthwhile! This is a must read.

Oh, and by the way, I recommended this book to my aunt this past summer, and she was hired for the first job she applied for after reading the book. They interviewed her once and hired her the next day. She said the book really helped her with her online presence.

I haven’t heard about the “Guerrilla marketing for Job Hunters 3.0” until 2 weeks ago and I am glad I book the book when it was recommended by amazon.
If I have to summarize in one sentence what I got from the book it will be: “”Creativity is thinking up new things. Innovation is doing new things.” Theodore Levitt.

For a couple of months I was doing classic job search: looking for job posting on job board (careerbuilder i.e.) and was geting one call for around 100 application! I knew that I needed to do something different and that is what the book is about. It gives you tools to tackle the job market differently and help recruiters or managers to notice your application quickly. Among these new tools are the guerilla resume and extreme guerilla resume, the guerilla cover letter, the applications delivered by mails, the use of linkedin profile to expand your professional network (I went from 150 connections to +500 connections in two days!), blogging, the creation of personal webpage, etc.
I start sending my Guerilla resume to local employer by mail this week and will see how it goes.

Although it too soon to says that it helps me to land a job offer, the authors were able to help me to think outside the box and teach me skills that helped me to improve my job hunting skills. Thanks for the amazing book.

After a few months of spinning my wheels trying to find a job the “old fashioned” way by applying for jobs online and through email, using a traditional resume and cover letter, I was getting nowhere. I am a high level professional in my field with years of experience and was 100% qualified for the positions I was applying for, but I just couldn’t get a foot in the door for even an interview. Finding this book opened my eyes to a whole new approach to job hunting. I’ve already begun putting it to the test and hope to see some positive results soon!

5.0 out of 5 stars John J’s GM4JH’s-2.0 Book Review…., August 10, 2011

By

John Joakim “John Joakim” (Canada) – See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)

This review is from: Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Tap Into the Hidden Job Market using Social Media and 999 other Tactics Today (Paperback)

Between 1975 and 2008 (35 years)I had worked in the manufacturing sector and conducted (8) successful job searches that allowed me to move from one company to next in a seamless process and I never lost a days pay. During this time I read at least 2 dozen Job Search related books, watched videos, attended seminars and solicited help from countless recruiters / head-hunters. It seemed that whenever I needed a job, I was able to easily find one. Follow the tried and tested process, and the job offers would flow my way….no worries!

Over the past 2.5 years I have been working in my own business, but reached a conclusion January 2, 2011 that my previous working life gave me a much greater sense of job satisfaction and since that day I have been actively doing a job search, again while working. After the first (2) months into my (after normal work hours) job search, I told my wife, “something major has changed since my last job search….and I think you better get a partime or fulltime job until I at least land a new job.” She didn’t and does not plan to!

I have tried everything that worked before and more…..nothing has worked so far…not even close. Through my networking efforts, someone told me about the Guerrila Marketing Book. I borrowed it from the library and read it. I couldn’t believe how spot on all the suggestions, tips, tactics were. It felt like I had hit gold! But at the same time I heard that the revised edition (2.0) would be available shortly. So I waited. Why, I don’t know. Finally I was able to get the latest edition and read it from cover to cover 2 times, revised my resumes and cover letters to better brand myself etc., but never really took full advantage of all that priceless information and knowledge in your book Mr. Perry. Deep down I kept thinking, my old way would work….but it hasn’t come even close, and it won’t work anymore….things have changed forever. Some days I would get a flurry of activity, but it would be gone a few days later.

Last month, during a 1 week vacation in Las Vegas (60th birthday gift from my daughter and son) I read the GM4JH’s again and it revitalized my need to get my job search back on track by doing things differently….basically, follow your books instructions to the letter this time and stop doing what doesn’t work anymore. The value of your book is that it can help anyone doing a job search if they will just allow it. It not only details the steps to take, but also how to take the steps. The examples are easy to understand and relate to. Learning how to execute better searches in google, linkedin etc. has helped to save hours and hours of time. Getting to the information that you are interested in fast, while effectively filtering out most of what you don’t want or need to see. Helps tremendously in other searches also. Sounds like a multiplier effect. I keep going through the chapters and I just can’t put the book down. It has been a tremendous help and my job search activities seem to be picking up. I feel that in another 2-3 weeks I will see the benefit of all the work that has been done and I feel 100% confident that this way will work. I agree with the book, that my task is to find ways to effectively market my value to potential employers. The better I do my marketing job, the higher the probability of receiving an offer or offers.

I read some of the other reviews posted here and found the vast majority to be very positive, but I was surprised at some of the negative comments. It seems that some people want it all done for them and they are expecting a formula that works for everone under any situation without having to think for themselves. For these people I say, use what information makes sense for your situation and get on with it and stop complaining. Be thankful that someone finally put it all together in one easy to read book and is not charging an arm and leg for it. For me,if I can get one good idea that will help my job search, it will be worth more than the price of the book. This has absolutely been the best book of its kind hands down that I have ever read. Nothing comes close and I would recommend it exclusively to anyone doing a job search.

To conclude, thank you to David Perry, Jay Conrad Levinson and everyone else who had a part in putting all this valuable material together and making it available for such a very reasonable price. Easy to read, easy to follow, and it all makes perfect sense. Why didn’t I thinkl of it…lol..lol… :-))

This review is from: Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Tap Into the Hidden Job Market using Social Media and 999 other Tactics Today (Paperback)

This is a very good book. I have read many, and I have been looking a long time for a good career. I keep learning from David and Conrad’s book. For instance:

People Skills – Emphasis on people that can pull teams together, communicate with them and others, and to learn to be likable.

Think around corners, to solve problems. Let your prospective employer know that you go beyond just ‘job obedience.

There are pages of ‘Guerrilla Intelligence’ and ‘War Stories’ that bring to life many of the books concepts. Websites and applications to use to help you in your job and career hunting are invaluable. I find myself picking up my copy of Guerrilla Marketing as a reference to the websites that are mentioned.

LinkedIn is mentioned and with great tips on how to use this invaluable tool.

I highly recommend this book and you won’t go wrong in using a handful of these skills.

If you want to stand out from the crowd and out of all the hundreds of graduates, this book is a must read. I really enjoyed the “War Story” which addressed real life job hunting situations. I felt many of the suggestions were geared to high level career individuals however I did gain a lot of great suggestions. As a early careerist these job hunting suggestions will definitely make me stand out. I have just placed my order for business cards with QR codes, something I would not have thought about before reading the book. I do suggest as you read the book to actually do what the book suggests in each chapter before moving onto the next chapter. It is in fact about YOU taking action so the book only works if YOU do. Great book!

Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, expecting different results. I’ve been running on the “job search hamster wheel” for months with no job offers. “Post and pray” is not a viable strategy as seen by my lack of results. I am an executive with years of experience and haven’t been getting any traction. Worst of all, I’m running out of steam. This book opened my eyes to new strategies and tactics that I wasn’t aware existed. I’m excited about doing something new and getting off my hamster wheel!

5.0 out of 5 stars MY unemployment “immunity idol”, June 23, 2012

By

mfjlabsSee all my reviews

This review is from: Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Tap Into the Hidden Job Market using Social Media and 999 other Tactics Today (Paperback)

As a current guerrilla marketer (and former job seeker-turned-hunter) I found MY unemployment “immunity idol” in the pages of this gem. High unemployment stats are now for mere mortals who haven’t read this book. It is so far, by far the single best source of job hunting information I’ve found. Not to mention the wider application of some of their techniques to marketing in general. To sum it up in a single word “EXCELLENT”!

All I can say is buy this book and read it twice. If times are tough, use your library card (you know the one you got the last time you lost your job!) ‘

Thank you Jay and David for this work. It will become a permanent part of my library. You guys ROCK!

Wow! If there is one thing you must do if you are in the job market or looking to hire… read this book.
Put away the computer, stop trying to form the best resume… just read this book.
And then begin to craft your strategy of setting yourself apart from the other applicants and truly market yourself and your abilities.

This is a must have!

No! I don’t work for those who created this book… I’m just extremely glad it was created.
Two years ago I read Guerilla Marketing for Job Hunters 2.0 and under 2 months had the job I wanted.

Why am I reading this new edition? My contract is almost up with that company and essentially I’m “back on the market.”

This is by no means a boring book… soooo many stories you can utilize, along with a downloads page on their site with even more helpful tools and content.

This review is from: Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Tap Into the Hidden Job Market using Social Media and 999 other Tactics Today (Paperback)

There is a bewildering, and expensive, assortment of career advice that a job seeker could spend the entirety of a paycheck on. A paycheck that they might not be making right now. I can’t think of a way to save family and friends more time and money than to suggest that they buy “Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters” and not worry about the rest.
Most job search books break information about the job search into “least publishable units” and then pad the rest of the book with redundancies, theory, and fluffy human interest stories in order to make it long enough to sell. “Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters” forgoes the fluff to provide actionable and tactical advice for each step of the job search process and includes charts and screenshots for daily practical use.
This book provides amazing value and will well reward your time and attention.

Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

This review is from: Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Tap Into the Hidden Job Market using Social Media and 999 other Tactics Today (Paperback)

Let me start by saying this is my first nonverbal review. That said, at the time of this review, I haven’t gotten all the way through the book yet. But so far it has reinforced some of the actions I’ve taken already and shed light on still more that are available to me. Be warned, this book wraps things up in such a way as to leave the reader with the sense that a job hunt is really like owning a small business. And that you, the owner/proprietor/asset, are responsible for selling yourself. To that end the text will introduce the reader to the concepts necessary, at a practical level, to allow the reader to make this transformation. The degree to which the reader assimilates this information is limited by the background, discipline, and integrity of the individual.

If you fall into either the JobHunter or the HeadHunter category you absolutely have to read this book. Reads like a mystery novel with you wanting to not keep it down except in this case you learn something from it as you go along 🙂 unlike your mystery novel.

The book is very well thought out and executed. Addresses three key areas — What to do, Why you need to do it , more importantly how to go about doing it as it applies to today’s market. Thanks for putting it together.

This review is from: Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Tap Into the Hidden Job Market using Social Media and 999 other Tactics Today (Paperback)

I had the pleasure of meeting David Perry at an Exec-U-Net meeting in Mississauga where he presented tips to help market our skills using online job search and Social Media.

He helped us to use our lateral thinking & also helped improve our job hunting skills.

David re-enforced that job-seekers need to continually market and sell themselves, using a multi-channel approach.

As well, many other presenters I have seen draw attention to themselves as a LinkedIn, Twitter, or Facebook guru.

I, too, give presentations to job seekers & this is THE book I refer them to.

Thanks for an amazing book!

5.0 out of 5 stars This book helped me get a 6-figure job without even looking for it!, November 20, 2011

By

Rob Mendez “GetLinked! – LinkedIn Jobs Made Easy” (Washington, DC) – See all my reviews

This review is from: Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Tap Into the Hidden Job Market using Social Media and 999 other Tactics Today (Paperback)

When you’re suddenly unemployed, without realizing it, you’ve just become self-employed. You’re doing everything you need to do to find your next client – an employer. What most people don’t understand is that you’re going to put in LONG hours, do A LOT of work, and you’re NOT going to get paid for it. Worse, it’s going to seem that everything gets sucked into this virtual “black hole” and you have no idea whether what you’re doing is working or not. (Hint – if you’re still not employed, it ain’t working!)

I know… I’ve been there… I’ve done that!

My unemployment/underemployment journey lasted 16 months before I found about the 2nd book in this series. I didn’t read that book… I STUDIED it! Then, I taught it to hundreds of other people – just like you – looking for a job while APPLYING it to my own life.

2 months later, I landed a job.

Since then, I’ve continued to teach these principles to THOUSANDS of other job seekers and have heard countless stories of how it’s worked for them. What an incredible gift I got in return by simply following the Law of Giving!

So when “The Guerrilla” asked me to write a section on LinkedIn for this 3rd book, I said absolutely yes!

DISCLAIMER: I’m not writing this review because of any selfish reasons. As a matter of fact, I haven’t made 1 penny from the sale of this book. I’m writing this review because I believe in it and because it works – PERIOD!

By the way, I’ve studied this book too and most of it is new information from the 2nd version. So, if you haven’t read the 2nd version, I’d get that too. Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 2.0: 1,001 Unconventional Tips, Tricks and Tactics for Landing Your Dream Job

That job I landed? Almost a year later, to the day, I was “downsized”. But this time was different…

Using the strategies outlined in these 2 books, I was able to find, interview, and start my next job in only 36 DAYS making 2.4 TIMES the salary of my old job! Then, while I was busily minding my own business in my new job, I get an even better offer 1 month later from another company. And when I said in the title of this review “6-figure,” I’m not talking about just “squeaking” by at $100,000 – think much bigger.

People, it doesn’t get any better than that!

Actually, it does.

I’m making VERY good money now, but I still started my own “Plan B” business. Why? Because we’re always taught to diversify, not to keep all of our eggs in one basket, etc. Yet, that’s exactly what we do when we work for an employer. We work 40 hours a week for 20 years to hopefully live off 40% of our salary. I call it the 40-20-40 club. Some people say the reason for retirement is when you’ve given so much of yourself to the company, that you don’t have anything left they can use. Sadly, in a lot of cases, people don’t have much left they can use for themselves or their families either. Or they eventually get laid off way before that point. That’s where your “Plan B” comes in – it helps to bridge the gap.

This book has ALSO helped me in my “Plan B” business, which in turn has enabled me to help 11 OTHER people with THEIR “Plan B” businesses.

How awesome is that!?

I’m not sharing this with you to brag – I’m sharing this with you to give you hope. If I can do it, ANY ONE of YOU can do it too!

I’m privileged to have been involved with this book, personally benefiting by applying it’s principles, and for being able to make a positive difference in other people’s lives. This book is like a gift that keeps on giving (at least that’s the snowball impact it’s had on my life).

I hope this book does the same for you.

I’ve been in marketing/sales/business development for more than 20 years yet this book brought marketing concepts to life in a way that was like really hearing them for the first time. Yes, marketing concepts. Perry and Levinson apply these to the marketing of you for the purpose of landing a job but they are universal. You will be impressed right from the start with the style in which they write. It’s conversational, not narrative; no pretty prose, just the kind of real world, straight-talk you want to hear to help you get out of the unemployment mess. Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0 does recommend how to organize the mechanics of your job search but I found the real value was in the creative suggestions for how to tackle the toughest problems, like getting noticed by hiring managers. You might have to recalibrate your comfort zone but as the saying goes, no guts, no glory. Finally, the authors provide an absolute wealth of websites and information-mining techniques that I would never have learned of elsewise. This is a tremendous book that will continue to serve me even having found a job. It contains the kind of uncommon common sense that seems so obvious and so true once you’ve heard it.

Grown up in the understanding that you have to follow the traditional guidelines when applying for a new job, I was quite skeptical when I started reading. To make a long story short, forget all these old-fashioned application methods. Great approach, exciting information. In the future, I will definitively hire candidates more likely who used these kinds of techniques for their job hunt.

In today’s market, branding yourself, making yourself stand out, doing things in unconventional ways is how people remember you. With thousands of resumes going to a single job posting, what is it about you that the hiring manager will remember and what have you done to increase your odds of getting an interview and landing the job. This book covers all these points. Even if you take just a few ideas from this book, you will build a pipeline that you cannot keep up with when your fellow unemployed are scratching their head stairing at the computer screen. I highly recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Michael Garee, Editor, “Headhunter” Hiring Secrets: The Rules of the Hiring Game Have Changed . . . Forever!, September 23, 2011

By

Michael Garee (Atlanta, GA) – See all my reviews

This review is from: Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Tap Into the Hidden Job Market using Social Media and 999 other Tactics Today (Paperback)

While there are many good job hunting books on the market today, in my opinion, THREE books clearly stand out from the competition: Skip Freeman’s “Headhunter” Hiring Secrets (I am the editor of Skip’s book), Richard Bolles’s “What Color is Your Parachute?” (THE “gold standard” job hunting book that clearly has withstood the test of time!), and “Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0,” which was co-authored by internationally successful “headhunter” David Perry. These THREE books should be on EVERY serious job hunter’s bookshelf.

The thesis throughout the “Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters” series, and a thesis that carries through to 3.0, is that, in order to be successful, a job hunter must be “unconventional,” and be prepared to DO the unconventional. To be sure, it takes “guts” to embrace, and then implement, some of the tactics and strategies recommended in “Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0,” but in today’s extremely challenging job market, to be successful, a job hunter must be prepared to be DIFFERENT, BETTER than his/her competition, i.e., other job hunters. This book will show you how to accomplish that goal!

I read the previous version (2.0) and quickly came to the conclusion that the information featured there was very STRONG! The 3.0 version is strengthened even further by the addition/update of information regarding the influence of today’s pervasive social media and how to effectively utilize these media to more effectively compete in today’s job market.

If you’re really serious about finding a job in today’s job market, the worst since the Great Depression of the 1930s, then you need to get your hands on “Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0.”

This review is from: Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Tap Into the Hidden Job Market using Social Media and 999 other Tactics Today (Paperback)

After 16 years in Financial Services, I found myself in an unfamiliar place which is looking for a new job. The old techniques including mailing thousands of letters don’t work well. Sixteen years ago I used a mail campaign and did land my job at an up and coming credit card company. I tried to repeat this approach and it was a complete dud – no useful response to many hundreds of letters. Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0 is full of ideas that do work in the modern Internet world.

The ideas presented by Jay Conrad Levinson and David E. Perry make sense. I’ve reworked my LinkedIn profile and it has grown quickly and I’m getting a lot more activity in terms of showing up in people’s searches.

Thanks to this book I have confidence that my search will go very well.

I’ve been a professional independent recruiter for over 25 years and this is by far the best, most complete book on the subject I’ve ever read. I’m still a recruiter and I’ve recently moved into job search coaching because I love working with the people more than dealing with the corporations. I can’t work with everyone so I recommend this book to them. Yes, it can be a bit overwhelming in its details but when you balance that with the money you’re losing each week you’re not working it’s the absolute best bargain in town. Read this book, do as many of the techniques as you can and your odds of getting a job will be 10 times better than you could do on your own. It’s the step-by-step blueprint you’ve been looking for.

As a performance management and personal branding professional, I found Guerilla Marketing for Job Hunters to be of great value to job seekers and to those currently employed. Having hired numerous individuals and having been trained in traditional resume writing and review, I was amazed at the techniques provided for developing standard and guerrilla resumes (see chapter 6) – a must read for job seekers, hiring managers,and human resources professionals. Their advice for preparing oneself to thrive in the marketplace is innovative. They encourage a proactive, bold approach to engaging with potential employers using new and creative techniques that speak to transferrable value. Excellent advice – an awesome resource!

5.0 out of 5 stars Learning to Advertise Myself, August 22, 2011

By

Java Bean (NJ United States) – See all my reviews

This review is from: Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Tap Into the Hidden Job Market using Social Media and 999 other Tactics Today (Paperback)

I am an art director in a advertising studio and yet I really had no idea how to sell myself until I started reading Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0. Everyday I work with companies to help them create or build their brand identity and make them into household names. When it came time for me to look for a better position I immediately went back to traditional job search methods instead of applying my own expertise to myself. I was frustrated and starting to second guess my own value when I wasn’t able to land the type of position I wanted.

And then I went to a party. Yeah, it doesn’t sound like I was in much of a mental state to “party” but you never know who you might meet. Turns out that I was so glad I went. I met a guy who related a story about how using this book changed his whole job hunting experience. He was unemployed for over 6 months and working hard to find a new job but failing miserably. After reading and applying many of the suggestions he landed a job within 3 weeks. I asked about what helped him most and one big thing was adding company logos to his resume for places he had worked for or products he had worked on. I was dumbstruck. Here I was developing these logos and not using them to my own benefit. What a smart, simple idea. I got the book the next day! If one idea could help then surely 999 other ideas would help more.
I am currently in the midst of using applicable tactics in my job hunt. I am fortunate to have a job, so I have the luxury of really searching for what I want for my future. But that also means fine tuning what I’m asking for and doing the research on the companies I’m interested in working with. The book give great direction how to find email addresses for those you want to contact, gather information on interviewers and identify associations. I’m also learning how to implement a PR strategy for myself. All great advice and examples. I recommend you read it now before you “need” it and make yourself a hot commodity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quite possibly the most valuable job hunting book you’ll ever purchase., August 21, 2011

By

TheBakerShop (Phillipsburg, NJ USA) – See all my reviews

This review is from: Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Tap Into the Hidden Job Market using Social Media and 999 other Tactics Today (Paperback)

If you’re serious about your career, whether you’re currently employed, running your own business, or out of work, you *need* to purchase this book. Why? Because David Perry’s Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters v. 3.0 is without a doubt the most succinct and actionable book on job hunting I have ever read – and I’ve read a lot! As a former academic and career advisor at the University of Minnesota, it was my job to help students prepare themselves for their working lives outside of school, and since my students were Architecture and Landscape Architecture students where internships and having a career focus were key, I made it a point to read up on how to help them make due on their investment. Yet in all that time, I never found a single book I could recommend without reserve. In fact, I even wrote my own book: “The Music Industry Guidebook” as a result of my own frustration in not being able to find a book about breaking into the music business! So, instead, I shared with them my insight gained as an intern with various companies in the music business, and experience I possess from a career in sales and marketing to help them chart their own path.

I haven’t worked at the University for a number of years, but I’m still always interested in career-minded reading. And a few weeks ago, after stumbling upon its companion website GM4JH.com, I decided to check out David’s book. After all, the material on the site was convincing enough, so I went to my local book store to flip through the book. Satisfied it had what I was seeking as I transition myself to Seattle this fall, I purchased GM4JH … the first book I’ve purchased in about 5 or 6 years. Most times these days, I’m using the library for my reading, but I knew from skimming the book that I was going to need to mark it up, dog-ear it and refer back to it often. With that kind of book … there is no hope for avoiding late fees at the library, so I dropped my card on the counter and purchased it. I have not been disappointed.

As I poured over the book, the one obvious thing I noticed, and that David obviously comments on, is that many of the principles he suggests are time-honored sales techniques re-aligned for the job search. And these aren’t hokey things that you might dislike as a consumer being pitched to, these are honest, consultative sales type approaches that endear you to your audience and help garner the sale. Which is EXACTLY what you’re trying to do when you’re looking for a new job, or transition laterally in a firm you already call home.

David’s book is complete with a host of exercises and tasks you can implement for immediate results. For example, the book’s Chapter 8 about leveraging LinkedIn.com in your job search, is phenomenal. Within one day of making a number of changes to my profile, my own profile (which I’ve had up for nearly 7 years at this point), went from showing up in searches only 10-12 times per week, to showing up in search 8-14 times per DAY. That’s one heck of a change in LinkedIn SEO results, and well worth the price of the book alone.

But the giving doesn’t stop there. David’s book will show you how to turn your resume into a powerhouse document that will stand out from others more than you can imagine possible, and the research section and tips throughout the book have even a guy like me (a lead generation expert and researcher for places like The History Channel) amazed at some of the inventive techniques for digging up contacts, hiring managers and recruiters galore.

I simply can’t say enough about this book. It is really that good. I recommend it to everyone I know who is looking to move around in their career, and I would recommend it to you dear reader as well. If you follow the processes David outlines in his book, Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters, you WILL get results!

5.0 out of 5 stars A whole new way of thinking, August 14, 2011

By

Kaufmann Kreative “Beyond Tricycle Thinking” (Tacoma, WA USA) – See all my reviews

This review is from: Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Tap Into the Hidden Job Market using Social Media and 999 other Tactics Today (Paperback)

I’ve never been out of work before…and after a couple month’s I quickly felt that there had to be a better way to find a new job than just calling friends or applying to online job boards. I’m in marketing, have won tons of marketing awards…but had never thought about creatively marketing myself. This book opened my eyes, and my mind. You don’t have to job hunt a ‘certain way’.

The book not only gives you some great ideas, it will inspire others as you are reading it. It tells you how to do traditional things better…and how to creatively do things you haven’t even thought about. It gets you thinking. The sections on Linkedin are particularly helpful, as I never understood how to fully tap it’s potential. Or how much it’s used by job recruiting firms. I’ve connected with so many recruiters and hiring managers in the last 3 weeks I can’t believe it, and have already had a couple of very promising interviews.

A side benefit of this book is that David Perry invites you to connect with him on his Linkedin group. It’s been wonderful actually exchange questions and ideas with him and other readers…not only did I get a book, I got a job coach and support group too! If I could give it 6 stars, I would, just based on this.

If you’re looking for a job, this could be the best investment you’ll ever make.

This review is from: Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Tap Into the Hidden Job Market using Social Media and 999 other Tactics Today (Paperback)

This book got me to re-evaluate how I was looking at social media as childs play and the “hey look at me” I am not getting enough attention attitude that seems so prevalent today. It truly offers up stirring views and new attitudes with rousing stories of how others have done “it” themselves in this book. This book has already paid for itself in the change of attitude and confidence it has given me already, anything that follows will just be icing on the cake. I read this book from cover to cover more like a non fiction book than anything else since I was in such disbelief that job hunting could be so simple if just given the right directions! Thanks for writing this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars An Essential Tool, May 25, 2010

By

David Bowsher (Dallas, TX USA) – See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)

I was looking for a book that went beyond the usual job hunting tips and “how to’s”. I took a chance with this book, and it is easily the best value I have received in helping my search.
You get relevant “tricks of the trade” in setting up and exploiting your LinkedIn profile.
Solid advice on the basics of job hunting in the New Economy. For someone who has not been in the job market since the late 80’s, this book explains the new way to job search, but also reinforces the keys of effective job search practices.
Have I mentioned the $250 Audio Seminar that you can have access to by buying this book? Just another reason to get Mr. Levinson’s and Mr. Perry’s book.
This tool is in my briefcase permanently.

This review is from: Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Tap Into the Hidden Job Market using Social Media and 999 other Tactics Today (Paperback)

David Perry presents creative and dynamic strategies for removing yourself from the “avalance of resumes” that are making a challenging job market even more difficult. David’s stategies give the job seeker a new way to approach the job search — and to set themsleves apart from the crowd.

As a career recruiter I have counseled many job seekers and find that everyone THINKS they know how to find a job — but that almost everyone is going about it all wrong! David opens a door and sheds light on this critially important issue.
If you are looking for a job — START HERE!

This review is from: Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Tap Into the Hidden Job Market using Social Media and 999 other Tactics Today (Paperback)

I have been looking for jobs for over 6 months and have had very little luck in the job market. I felt that I had the right credentials for most of the jobs I was applying for, but I just was not being heard by the employers. I was seeking a book that could help me better understand the job market, but what I found in “Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters,” was so much more!
This book gave me the confidence and skills to push forward in the job hunt and be more proactive about actually targeting jobs that I wanted and that were a good fit, instead of just submitting resumes and cover letters to all the jobs I could on job boards.
Each chapter gave a number of helpful tips to improve different aspects of the job hunt. I enjoyed the use of the tag app, that, when scanned sent me to YouTube links from authors in the chapters that gave advice. These links were a helpful visual tool.
What stood out to me most in this book was “how to use social media to your advantage.” I have been a part of LinkedIn for a couple years, but I never used it to my advantage. This book is very detailed and offers great examples from the author’s LinkedIn accounts on how to create contacts and make your profile stand out so people actually contact you!
What I appreciated most about this book were the great networking tips on the industry and company of choice.
I am thankful to the writers for putting this book together and helping me out.

This review is from: Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Tap Into the Hidden Job Market using Social Media and 999 other Tactics Today (Kindle Edition)

Its filled with practical tips and insights. I read the last night (75% of it, anyway) and from trying just ONE of the tips mentioned in it, I got an email from a hiring manager the same day. I’m yet to finish the book, but that tip alone is worth the price. In addition, the writing style is conversational and easy to read. Its no wonder I stayed up until 5am reading it.

I would recommend that you order the paperback version of this as you can make notes in it, fold it, etc. I got the Kindle version because I wanted to read it right away. I’ll probably order a paperback as well. I just love having a hard copy of a really good book, and this one is loaded with information.

Bottom Line: If you are job hunting, not job hunting, or even if you are happily employed, still read this book! Its a small investment which will definitely pay for itself in no time. Enjoy!

Feeling lost in your job search? Tired of all those online resumes and job apps disappearing into the cyber black hole? I would highly recommend picking up “Guerrilla Marketing For Job Hunters 3.0”. The authors, Jay Conrad Levinson and David E. Perry present an entirely different way of thinking about and executing your job hunt. Times have changed and so have the ways that we look for employment. The problem is they are the same old ways we have used before in the past. Guerrilla Marketing gives thought provoking and unique ways to penetrate that iron curtain of unemployment. The book is packed with job searching ideas you have probably never heard of before. In addition, there are TONS of extras that are included that make buying the book a sound investment. If you spend anything at all on improving you odds of getting a new job, I would admonish you to BUY THIS BOOK NOW!

5.0 out of 5 stars After a year of searching best practices on job hunting and HR I found this book. It changed my approach completely., March 9, 2013

This review is from: Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Tap Into the Hidden Job Market using Social Media and 999 other Tactics Today (Paperback)

I have been searching best practices on job hunting and HR to link the 668 trainees of the European Institutions with
potential employers for the past year. In that time I came accross many articles, books, web and blog posts about the subject,
but none was as rich as this one.

It’s really well written, it guides the reader step by step and it includes several interesting examples of best practices and
a completely new approach to HR or job hunting.

If you are wondering how to write an attractive CV, a motivation letter, or how to prepare for an interview and negotiate your salary, you’ll find all you need.

Since I finished reading it I started sharing the free online introduction of the book with my friends and online HR groups.

I strongly reccommend reading it to anyone who is serious about finding a job.

This review is from: Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Tap Into the Hidden Job Market using Social Media and 999 other Tactics Today (Paperback)

I admit I am not comfortable with some of the more extreme tactics presented in this book, but as a person not currently actively looking but interested in moving into the chemical industry from academia after a post-doc I have found all of the passive tactics VERY useful. I have a new Guerrilla Resume, cover letter and LinkedIn account.

Within a week I have doubled my LinkedIn traffic, made several new contacts relevant to the job I am hoping to move into and have a consulting offer for a chemical start up. And that’s just the start, since I added David on LinkedIn he has already accepted my invitation and given me some personal advice on my LinkedIn profile within 24 hours! I really appreciate the time he has taken to give me personal advice.

The book has also helped my confidence in general for job interviews and even just approaching people on LinkedIn and in person which would ordinarily terrify me. I couldn’t imagine adding David on LinkedIn before and asking for advice on my profile.

There is not a person alive who cannot benefit from this book, regardless of industry or personality! I recommend it to all of my friends and family (but only people I won’t have to compete with directly for a job.) If you use even a fraction of the advice you will instantly gain more confidence and If you are looking for a job now… Why are you wasting your time reading this when you could be spending a tiny amount of money on something that could change your life!

This review is from: Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Tap Into the Hidden Job Market using Social Media and 999 other Tactics Today (Paperback)

Having just graduated university i was quite lost about where to start my job search.. So in an attempt to find some guidance i purchased a number of books on the topic. One of which was ‘Guerrilla Marketing for job hunters’. Out of the 10 books i purchased this was by far the best and most helpful, i really wish i had of read it first because the first three books i read were a waste of time in comparison to this one.

The innovative and up to date processes outlined by Jay and David, are both logical and socially relevant in today’s job hunt market. They are one of the few authors who are being proactive and progressive in pioneering tactics, not just outlining and moulding those of old which are no longer relevant given the technological landscape of the modern job market.

I was glued to this book from start to finish, the authors kept me motivated from page 1 to page 300 and completely changed my attitude and perception of the employment process, i highly recommend this book to everyone who wants to get the most out of their professional careers.

Thank you,

Jack Laidler[…]

As someone who suddenly was looking for a job after 9 nine with a company, I felt at a loss. I was using the traditional methods of looking for jobs and was getting nowhere.I really liked this book because it helped me to organize my job hunt, provide strategies to getting my foot in the door and how to get noticed. I liked the tips on how to revise my resume and how to get interviews. This book helped me to set up a LinkedIn profile and was a great resource to directing me to other places to do research. It helped to boost my self-esteem and to also not let my previous failures to get noticed get me down. The additional resource downloads are also great. The author uses real life examples and really seems to understand what employers and head hunters are looking for. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to get noticed in the job market.

This book is a MUST HAVE for all job seekers! I originally checked this book out at the library (after being on a waiting list for it for several weeks.) I read halfway through the book before I realized I was spending too much time taking notes, so I went and purchased my own copy. After just one week, my personal copy is full of highlighted text and dogeared pages. David Perry guides you through the process of setting up “get found” profiles on LinkedIn, ZoomInfo, etc., as well as creating standard and Guerrilla style resumes and cover letters. This book is right on par with the other Guerrilla Marketing books. Even those who aren’t job seekers would benefit from the social media information provided in the Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0 book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive Field Manual for Job Search Success!, February 19, 2013

Shawn D James (SAN DIEGO, CA, US) – See all my reviews

This review is from: Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Tap Into the Hidden Job Market using Social Media and 999 other Tactics Today (Paperback)

This book is exactly what you are looking for if you are in search of a job, wish to change your career, or are looking to stay abreast of opportunities for professional growth. It has been over a decade since I’ve had to really buckle down and engage in a tried and true job search. In the past, I’ve acquired jobs and consulting work through the traditional word-of-mouth referral system. This worked well until recently. I noticed a sharp reduction in my cue of opportunities. The well was beginning to run dry, so to speak.

Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0 is a profound eye-opener. I was unaware that the world of job searching had quietly and completely changed in the background. New rules of engagement are now in place. Tradition has been upended, and few know about it. The economic rollercoaster of the past several years has forced a significant shift in the way jobs are won. Instead of you finding a job, a job must now find you.

The authors, Jay Conrad Levinson and David E. Perry, have created what I consider to be a highly effective field manual for job search success. The book centers on embracing a guerrilla mindset using “outside the box” thinking and methods to set yourself apart from your job searching competition. I’ve read it 3 times. The first reading was nothing less than a paradigm shift in my understanding of how the job market works. The second reading was a thorough consumption of every word. I would like to emphasize that not one word is wasted. The entire book is about getting it done. Throughout the third reading I employed the strategies and tactics outlined in the book. Now it is your turn!

Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Tap Into the Hidden Job Market using Social Media and 999 other Tactics Today

This informative book is packed with step-by-step guidance on managing a successful job campaign.

The real “AHA” moment for me was when I realized that any job search is a marketing task first and foremost and one must think in those exact terms.

As I tried many of the non-traditional tactics mentioned in the book, some worked well, and others not so well, but it was my taking bold action that gave my confidence a boost and that is what leads to more interviews and ultimately job offers.

This review is from: Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Tap Into the Hidden Job Market using Social Media and 999 other Tactics Today (Paperback)

Guerilla Marketing for Job Hunters book stands out from other job-hunting books in that it takes a unique and differentiated angle towards the elements of a search, including research, resume writing, networking, interviewing and other aspects of the search. The book applies the tactics of a military campaign to land the job. While unusual, it is this differentiation that proves essential to stand out from the crowd in a job market where there are more candidates (usually traditional job hunting methods) compared to the supply of jobs.

This review is from: Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Tap Into the Hidden Job Market using Social Media and 999 other Tactics Today (Paperback)

As a former reporter known for my resourcefulness, I didn’t expect to get much out of this book, despite its stellar reviews. I’m so glad the book proved me wrong!

The writing pulled me in by getting me to rethink my assumptions about the availability of jobs, and kept my attention with page after page of resources, instructions, and “Art of War” analogies. I knew the importance of researching companies and using keywords, for example, but the book helped me enact these strategies by providing specific methods ─ ones I hadn’t used before. There’s plenty more than this, but I’d urge you to invest in the book, since you’ll want to read and enact specific steps for yourself. You’ll even have the opportunity to connect with David Perry, a headhunter extraordinaire, and his enormous network of contacts. I’ve received a couple of helpful messages already and they weren’t just form letters; he specifically responded to items I had mentioned. Now that’s diligence!

I have to admit I’m thoroughly impressed at the writing style too. Instead of droning on and on, it’s exciting, engaging and upbeat. I find myself reading until 2 a.m. because it’s chock full of fascinating info.

I work in more of a PR role these days, and can promote the heck out of a product or service I’m passionate about. Even though I’m confident I have been a strong asset for every company and organization where I’ve worked, for some reason, it’s much harder to promote myself. Surprisingly, the book is even helping with this dilemma.

Although I love Michigan, we are facing our share of economical challenges these days. I fully plan to fly in the face of these challenges and be counted as a success story, using the guerrilla tactics in this book. Stay tuned…

This review is from: Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Tap Into the Hidden Job Market using Social Media and 999 other Tactics Today (Paperback)

David-I loved the book-in fact, I read it twice!

3 obervations: First, from a confidence level, reading the book has re-energized me in my job search in this tough job market. Although I am a seasoned licensed attorney and licensed P & C claims examiner, with a passion for hard work and helping others, the available jobs for my skill set, seem to be very scarce. Having read your book, however, I now have an entireley new frame of mind and frame of reference relative to the “hidden job market.”
Second, unlike many “self-help” books, Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters-3.0, provides step-by step practical advise that helps the “Guerrilla” job hunter, literally from day one. I have already made a number of professional “connections” that I am sure will help me in the next chapter of my progressive professional career.
Third, in addition to your positive and motivating writing style, the structure of the book is ideal for job-hunters at different phases of their “search”; from recent college grads, to more seasoned professionals, seeking either a lateral move or a career change.

Thanks again for all of your professional help! I can see why you have a “black belt” in your chosen career. Keep up your great, timely and passionate help, particularly in these trying times.

Cordially yours,

Dennis D. Bossian, Esq.

Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters is exactly what you need if you are sick of the seemingly never-ending job search. This book really gives you a road map for success.

It’s vital to put into practice what you are reading. Let all the success stories included give you the motivation you need to take action and control your future.

This book is a must for job hunters. It is very handy. The strategies and techniques worked very well in my hands, and more importantly with the tools and ideas introduced in the book, I have helped several friends land their jobs fairly soon when they were laid off.

Truely understand what it takes to land a job as instructed in the book, work with a plan, landing a job will be a calculated success.

Thanks David and Jay for this great book.

I rely on an old saying ‘If it’s going to be it’s up to me’ and Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0 reinforced this message when it comes to a job search. What am I waiting for, it’s time to take my search into my hands and be the driver of the results I want. I have completed reading this book WOW! – and now in the mist of taking these practices forward. I have a new outlook on just how much fun this can be too! You need to be brave and have a sense of humor, because if you are just waiting for a recruiter to call or sending out blind resumes … it will be a long wait. ‘If it’s going to be ….’

This book is simply chock-full of everything you need to boost your job hunt. You’ll want to have this book by your side as you conduct your hunt as each chapter, practically every page, has a new insight to reflect on, tool to use, website to check out and ideas to implement. I’ve recommended it personally and I’m doing the same here for anyone who happens to read this. If you’re looking for a job, but have a sneaking suspicion you could be doing it better, you won’t regret this purchase.

The new paradigm in job hunting! that’s exactly what I think this book is about… I tremendously enjoyed realising that what I thought was “state of the art” job searching strategies and tactics were actually “out of date” preconceived ideas that used to work fine for me not so many years ago (really, not many…), but not anymore! The impact of the internet put in practical terms for job hunters is here as well as the fact that you have no choice but to take a deep dive into the art of spontanaity (yes, it’s an art!) and networking… the best part is that this book tells you exactly how to do that, step by step… I just prescribed it to my daughters as a “must” for the beginning of their careers… and to me too for the continuation of mine.

An excellent book that’s going to serve me well during my hunt.

After reading books, articles and going through resume building courses, the lessons in this book definitely sets itself apart. Mainly the guerrilla tactics.

The best of what I’ve learned and am now using are to improved cover letters, follow up tips, and all the ways to get them to coffee!

  1. I’m a recent college grad, so the guerrilla marketing is definitely necessary to cut through all the clutter/competition for entry-level gigs.

This book is by far one of the most practical and useful selfhelp books I have ever bought. It is great for the high school graduate, college graduate, seasoned and mid career professional etc. You have to be practical and use the advice given to make it work for you according to your personal and professional goals. The book touches much on personal branding and how it is imperative in a tough job market. It would have been nice if the author/s would have gone into more detail about personal branding relative to the reader or audience’s choosen career paths, good read nonetheless!

Having had only 2 jobs in twenty years I was completely unaware of the sea change in the career/job marketplace. Checking 5 books from the library one stood above all others: Guerilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0… This book I purchased. It explained the lay of the land, the changes and pitfalls in the market. Most importantly, Guerilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0 details how and why the job hunter must differentiate themselves from the pack. With an extravagant series of excellent articles by expert contributors such as Dave Mendoza, Rob Mendez and Skip Freeman this book clearly and succintly describes how to negotiate successfully corporate topography. Very well organized, incisive, offering many additional resources, I recommend this book unequivocally.

The book is full of good info and actual examples you can use. Best of all it showed me that talking to the right people will get you the job. I called some old contacts from jobs I didn’t get in the past and was rewarded with a hit on a job that was a good fit for my skills. I sent my resume directly to the company, they set up the interview and I was hired. This opening was never advertised because I talked to the right people. It was good for me and the employer because they spent no time or money on the advertising and going through all the canidates.

I agree with a previous review in that one must read to the end, even if you’re in the middle of a job search. Do not, absolutely do not move forward with your job search until you’ve read this book to the end.

Based on one of the learnings from the book, I made a follow-up call at 7:59 am to a hiring manager, introduced myself advising I was following up to ensure receipt of my resume and immediately shared my top 3 achievements. It got her attention right away with positive comments on my savings $40,000 through alternate sourcing. She asked me to spell my name and advised that HR is still collecting resumes. I asked if was ok to follow-up next week and of course, she said Thursday or Friday. You bet I will!

5.0 out of 5 stars The definitive resource for today’s job seeker, February 26, 2012

This review is from: Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Tap Into the Hidden Job Market using Social Media and 999 other Tactics Today (Paperback)

From the minute you begin reading this book, you won’t be able to put it down. Nor should you! If you’re a job seeker in today’s tough market where employers are receiving some 200 applications for a single job opening, you need bold tactics to differentiate yourself from the pack. This book offers sound strategies for differentiating yourself in your resume and cover letter. It covers LinkedIn, described as “the 800-pound Gorilla.” For those who don’t yet believe, this chapter will convince you of the importance of your profile. (I began updating mine immediately after reading this chapter and noticed how many times my profile had been accessed in the past 30 days. I’ve been on LinkedIn since 2006 and I don’t think the total number of hits on my page numbered as many since I started sending out job applications. I never took my profile all that seriously. I never really kept it up-to-date, which I see now was a mistake. (I recently read that more than 60% of employers will check you out on sites like LinkedIn and Facebook before they ever consider making you an offer.) At the end of this book, there’s a special code for FREE resources for readers of the book. Don’t skip this offer! The information is really valuable. I’ve just downloaded about one dozen new resources and have only gotten through the first one. But what the authors have to say has held true in my own life. Many of us wait until our back is up against the wall, then we accept whatever offer comes our way, even when clues suggest it’s not the right fit. I can tell you from firsthand experience this is the WORST case scenario. These types of situations usually do not work out, no matter how positive you try to be about your situation. David Perry and Jay Conrad Levinson offer advice on how to avoid this type of scenario. If you’re already a “guerrilla job hunter,” then you don’t need this book. But if, like me, you’ve made mistakes along the way, it’s a “must read.” I can’t wait to read more. Got to go…. I have some reading to do. Time is of the essence!

This is not your average book on resumes, interviews, cover letters, and the like. Lots of those out there, and a few good ones.

Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters (GM4JH) invites you to a journey of total transformation in how you look at the job search process. Since the book includes unconventional tips, tricks and tactics for landing your dream job, you may choose to try out a few. But GM4JH is not really a book, it is a new way of thinking – a total mindshift in how you perceive the job search process that requires you to forget everything you thought you knew about job hunting, step to the edge, close your eyes, and take a leap of faith – and become a job search guerrilla. Then you will see the book as a ninja’s arsenal of weapons for conquering the job market and that the whole of the concept of the book is truly greater than the sum of its parts. Through the author’s website, they provide testimonials, tools, and techniques that augment the book as well as offer guerrilla coaching services. Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters is not for the faint of heart, but for anyone who wants to blaze his or her own path in today’s job jungle.

This review is from: Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Tap Into the Hidden Job Market using Social Media and 999 other Tactics Today (Paperback)

During my job search, I have read a lot of books with advice on how to land a job in a tough job market. I have found the information in GM4JH 3.0 to be invaluable. Although some of the advice is similar to what others have given, the largest difference for me has been that the authors not only suggest what you should do (most often with a twist), but also tell you HOW to do things. The tools for researching industries are phenomenal, and I didn’t know they existed until I read the book. The additional resources for each idea are innumerable, between websites listed in the book, to the “extras” that can be downloaded from the book’s companion website. There are also plenty of ideas for people like me who are switching careers where neither was a traditional sales position. At times it can be hard to quantify your value when you don’t have a hard dollar figure or percentage of revenue that staying on budget and meeting a deadline brings in. This book helps you quantify your value in a non-sales role.
I am in the thick of my job search right now so I can’t tell you the results yet, but if you want to reenergize your efforts, I would suggest you take a look at this book and its novel ideas. It also has plenty of ideas for people who feel they are “secure” in their current position, but know they should be doing a better job of self-promotion.

When I picked up this book, I had absolutely no expectations based on my previous experiences with other prescriptive “self help” , “How to” kind of books. But reading on, I was pleasantly surprised since the book not only highlights what needs to be done, but also delves in detail on how do we go about doing it…The seemingly fantastical approaches detailed in the book start appearing all the more achievable and workable once you see those tagged videos of the actual folks who were in similar situation and who strove hard to use these techniques to win their dream jobs…Their experiences using these techniques has further encouraged me to apply them in my own search.. I will recommend this book to all of you job seekers who want to stand out and get noticed…

I read several books about job hunting these days. None of them included so many new and relevant information. OK, my last job hunt was seven years ago… But, I still think this book brings you up to date and describes all tools you have to use to find your dream job. It is fun to read. It took only three days (several weeks for other books)! The sections about general tactics and how to use and optimize LinkedIn profiles were especially interesting.

This review is from: Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Tap Into the Hidden Job Market using Social Media and 999 other Tactics Today (Paperback)

This is one of the best job hunting books out there filled with ton of information. It is a bit forward esp. if you are a woman and not used to certain suggestions and the “sales” like approach, but it is filled with excellent advise that should help nonetheless.

Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters is an excellent book. With today’s job search field so difficult, you must find that “edge” and the concepts found in this book helped me do that. Thinking out of the box was the theme of this book and it hit a home run. I recommend this book to all of my friends and networking associates. I am facilitated at a job search group and I continually recommend this to them as well. Great book!!

I read the Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0 twice. I found the book exciting and extremely helpful. Chapters on Resume cration, coffee cup caper, and etc. I had 7 interviews after following the steps in this book with 3 job offers.

I would highly recommend this book for anyone who is looking for a job, who has been out of work for a long time and cannot get interviews. The tactics really work.

This review is from: Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Tap Into the Hidden Job Market using Social Media and 999 other Tactics Today (Paperback)

An exciting read with a wealth of knowledge!

I just couldn’t put the book down once I started reading. Although David recommends that you read the book through once and then again, I was so excited that I started applying what he was telling me to do upon reading each chapter. I was ravenously, building my professional profile on his recommended websites, completely revamping my resume and have a whole new perspective on how to market myself as “different” and more “outstanding” than everyone else!

What an eye opener for the job hunter of today. Forget what you know about the past, how do you make yourself stand out in the crowd or on the web, which has become our world? Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0 is full of innovative ideas to create an online presence. “It’s more important to be found than to find” and David Perry is right!

His book is my “new bible” and I will continue to use and apply his advice. I am already promoting, marketing myself, and changed my entire thought pattern on what it takes to succeed in getting that incredible job that I envision.

I have been in the marketing field for many years and this is one of those “ah ha” moments that you must take advantage of. I am off and running….Thank you!

5.0 out of 5 stars one of best job search books of all time, January 31, 2012

By

RichardSee all my reviews

This review is from: Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Tap Into the Hidden Job Market using Social Media and 999 other Tactics Today (Paperback)

Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0 is one of the best employment books I have ever read. I have read many in my roughly fifteen years as a job and employment counselor here in north Idaho. What makes this book and the companion earlier Guerrilla Marketing books stand out is their clarity of what works for job seekers to find work in this very deep and painful recession. I especially liked the sections on how to market a job seeker’s skills and put them into a compact and powerful resume, with an attached cover letter, that not only gets the attention of all those that read it but keeps the attention on what the job seeker can bring to the company to meet their needs. Value is so powerful to employers and using numbers and facts that prove how a job seeker has either made a company in the past, saved it money or provided means to make the company’s processes move more efficiently, thus saving the company money, just sings to an employer’s ears in this recession.

I would recommend this book to almost any job seeker out there now, especially to those that are looking for higher level positions that pay the most for someone that has the most value to give an employer. The number of tips provided is simply amazing and I have used one of their tips on building a resume that gets the employer’s attention to help a job seeker that I case manage find a temporary job with the number one company he wanted to work for in the area of his choice. He is doing very well in this job and I believe he will be hired by this area company as soon as he completes his temporary work. All in thanks to Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0!!

After a 15+ year career primarily in Telecom, I found this book extremely helpful in laying out a tactical plan for approaching the job market.

Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0 will accommodate any industry or discipline that you are involved in.

This book explains why the traditional search process doesn’t work, and it provides suggestions to find a new job opportunity using non-conventional means.

It provides real life examples, tools and website resources to assist in your job search campaign.

It is an excellent resource for anyone trying to understand how to leverage the LinkedIn into assist in making connections and improving your chances of securing a job.

I liked the sections on working with recruiters and networking. I picked up a number of good tips that I did not find in other books on this topic.

This book is written in a style that is engaging and very readable, and is packed with advice that will put you ahead of the competition.

This is why you should get this book; I highly recommend it.

For anybody who is serious about getting a job, this is the must-have guide, road map and resource. I have copies of all three editions and keep buying more because I give them away so often. The author is a headhunter and is totally on top of what is going on in the world of hiring and he knows all the inside tips for job seekers.

I got a six-figure job in 10 weeks using this book and the techniques it covers. I’ve begun to notice some imitators but don’t be fooled, this is the book you want. David is very practical and the results speak for themselves!

I found that Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0 was the best book for job seekers. There’s a ton of information with many great real life examples that would get one’s mind going and start thinking outside of the box…

Any other book on this subject has only 20% unique content and other 80% is common information. Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0 is just the opposite, 80% of content is so unique with real life examples that would make your imagination going.

Information on using new technologies, online social networks, personal branding, and networking, and preparation is excellent.

This is simply the best existing book on job hunting help, highly recommended and worth every penny

This is a wonderful book for job hunters. There are many techniques which may sound a bit outlandish but they work! I have used many of the techniques and I have had more interviews in 3 weeks than others have had in 3 months. It also is a great confidence builder. I found that as I started to get more positive feedback, I felt more confident and it helps your attitude. A must have!

I have been a successful Executive Recruiter for over 30 years and have helped thousands of people in that time.
Because I stay on top of what is current in my field of recruiting and job creation I know the top players.
Additionally, I choose wisely where I will spend my time.

First, David Perry has been for a long time and still is a working recruiter. He is not writing about theory in his book. His tips and strategies work, work quickly and are refreshingly different and effective. His writing style is to the point and clear.

Jay Conrad Levinson is a living legend. Look him up on Amazon and you’ll find a plethora of books authored by him. I have a number of his excellent books. He is famous because of his pragmatic assistance that he provides and his writing style is easy on the eyes and pulls you along toward success.

The combination of Jay and David is unbeatable. You will do yourself and your career a favor by getting this book and picking a few strategies and implementing them. The key is to take action. Pick a few of their great tips and take action.

Enjoy your much smoother ride to better employment.

I’ve read all three of David Perry’s books and each gets better. His latest really accentuates the need to treat your job search as a project. It brings home the realization that you’re outcome is truly based upon the effort that is given. He provides a lot of giveaways to help your spark the process. There are a ton of resources specifically geared towards using the Internet as a valuable tool. I especially found the reference to other literary resources helpful in gaining an edge.

Overall, I found the book extremely helpful in my own job search efforts and I recommend this as required reading for anyone who is interested in gaining a job, both quickly and efficiently.

There are 100’s of job search books on the market. No book provides the recipe for how to land a job in the most difficult economic times during the past 40 years. The tactics suggested take some practice but they really do work. Each chapter covers a separate topic and easy to refer to time and again.

It is the best search book in the market.

That’s right I said borrow it. If you are short on cash I’m not gonna push you to buy, but you can always get it at the library. That’s what I did, so I can tell you the good reviews are not hype-they’re inspired.

The best parts of the book include Extreme Resumes and Cover Letters, and a course on using LinkedIn and interview tips.
After I followed the Linked in Directions I received requests for connections which have proved valuable.

Like I said, get it!

This review is from: Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Tap Into the Hidden Job Market using Social Media and 999 other Tactics Today (Paperback)

First off, what an excellent substance heavy book!

I’ve read many self help job books throughout the years, but nothing beats this book!
The old way of applying to jobs by networking, emailing and job boards are just simply outdated.
I’ve been in the market of looking for new job opportunities to relocate back to NYC and it just wasn’t working.
This book gives a detailed approach on how to strategize and search efficiently for the next job/career opportunity. The book definitely has outside of the box strategies for success. Just like businesses have to establish a brand to get clients and maintain marketshare, each individual has to do the same in today’s information
age. We are our own CEO and the book has harped on that. Just as you a positive IRR on any investment you undertake the same applies to us. I just finished the book and I will most certaintly input the strategies that David was so generous to share with us ASAP. Some of them are quite bold, but the rationale is to get into the conversation with key decision makers. Go buy this book, it will give you a newfound burst of energy and life to jumpstart the successful job search. Thanks again for the wonderful book Dave!

This book is a must for anyone trying to find a job. David Perry has so much packed in this book you may have to read it twice to get everything there is in it. Being a recent graduate myself, I felt I needed more information on how I might go about finding a job in this economy. This book brings great insight on how recruiting is done now and how to stand out amongst the rest of the crowd. I have started a few tactics that are in the book but again I must say that there is so many great tips that I’ll be reading the entire book again.

This review is from: Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Tap Into the Hidden Job Market using Social Media and 999 other Tactics Today (Paperback)

From the opening sentences: “The most qualified job hunter is rarely the one who wins. …The positions invariably go to the person who does the best job at positioning himself or herself as the solution to an employer’s problem”, the authors help you develop a personal marketing plan (it IS a Guerilla Marketing book!).

Finding and landing a job is all about how you market and sell yourself; these techniques can work to sell anything, but are especially beneficial when the product is YOU. You don’t have to be a marketing genius! The authors walk you through the process on how to land your next job, and is full of useful email and telephone scripts and specific advice on how and when to use them. From resume and cover letter secrets, to interview tactics, this book is a must read for anyone searching for employment today, or is currently disgruntled and thinking about a future job.

Go get this book today and keep it on your shelf; your job is always in jeopardy in today’s (2012) new economy and this book can land you a new job if you follow its advice! For the cost of just 3-4 cups of Starbucks coffee, you can get that job you need. GO. BUY. NOW. (or stay unemployed)

The job market is tough. Going on interviews can be intimidating at times. In both cases, you need an edge and Guerrilla Marketing for Job hunters does that. After all isn’t marketing “the ability to influence a decision”. Are we not marketing ourselves to get the interviewer or decision maker to make a favorable decision. The books lays out information for you to do that. It also focus on giving confidence as well, whether it’s in writing your own resume, cover letter, and various ways to market yourself to highlight what you have to offer. There’s a lot of book out there as you make your way to the book shelfs at the stores; but for me few of them offers as much needed advice as the 3.0.It help you make better decision and face the job market with both eyes on the prize versus going in blindly. For the cost of the book and the opportunity to possibly land “that” job is well worth your compensation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Whole new strategy for job hunting in the digital age, December 28, 2011

By

Kerri “Kerri” (TX) – See all my reviews

This review is from: Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Tap Into the Hidden Job Market using Social Media and 999 other Tactics Today (Paperback)

I have been trying to move into a different career lately and happened to pick this book up. I was really glad I did. Guerrilla Marketing has a lot of great job seeking ideas, while being entertaining. It has all the stuff you would expect from a job hunting guidebook, resume, cover letter, interviewing, networking tips and much more. What I found the most useful was the sections on using social media for job hunting. Before I read the book I already had a linkedin account, and used social media but did not utilize these tools to their full potential in my job hunting. The authors gave tons of ideas on how to use linkedin, twitter, zoominfo, e-resume, and personal websites as digital breadcrumbs to be found on the internet by recruiters. It also gives a lot of insight into the hidden job market, and how employers find and hire people for these hidden jobs. The old ways for finding jobs are dying, if you want a job today, you need to go beyond the job boards. This book teaches you a whole new strategy for job hunting, that most people still don’t fully utilize today. I recommend this book for anyone looking for a job or who want better job security. I am still trying to implement many of the ideas I read in this book.

P.S Definitely connect with the author, David Perry on Linkedin

After reading this cover to cover, I am glad a thousand times over that I dropped a meager $10 to buy the digital copy. This is an absolute MUST-BUY for any modern job hunter. The content is direct, up to date, and very easy to follow.

I have not found a job yet, but the quality of my resumes, cover letters, and general plan of attack has changed dramatically (for the better!).

Ultimately, you have to put the plan into action. But, Jay has put together a stellar roadmap for you to follow.

Good luck!

P.S. I know you’re skeptical considering most “specialized” job hunting tools cost at least $100. There is value in those as well, but the information here is just so globally applicable that it’s worth just about ANYONE buying. I guess their approach is that selling 10 million copies @ $10 is certainly better than 100,000 copies @ $100!

5.0 out of 5 stars Job seeking for the modern age, December 15, 2011

This review is from: Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Tap Into the Hidden Job Market using Social Media and 999 other Tactics Today (Paperback)

Having read many business and job hunting books, there are few ideas that truly seem fresh in the genre. This book was different, and gave me alternative ways to look at the “problem” of job hunting.

What I found truly remarkable however, was that it was chock full of useful strategies and tips. Many of these kinds of books present a few ideas, and find several different ways to express them over and over, not providing much content in the end. I felt that this product avoided that trap, and I was eager to keep reading it to gather the insights it kept delivering, as opposed to many books that I finish out of “guilt” of leaving things undone.

I am not one to spoil content that is actually in books as some tend to do in their reviews, but if you are looking for a book with modern strategies for job hunting and tells you exactly what kind of tactics to employ, this is the one. You would be hard pressed to do better with a single book.

I decided to buy this book because I wanted to make a change in my career and did not quite know how to approach it. I enjoyed reading the book and using the techniques described in here.

This review is from: Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Tap Into the Hidden Job Market using Social Media and 999 other Tactics Today (Paperback)

Davis has written a valuable resource that should be a part of EVERYONE’S career toolkit. He gives practical, non-nonsense advice on such topics including: 1) identifying your career interests, 2) researching a target company “shopping list”, 3) preparing your job search documents (“Guerrilla” style), 4) launching a full scale assault on your target companies, 5) interviewing, and 6) salary negotiation. He draws a comparison to modern warfare that is applicable and is able to be understood very clearly.

This book uses some unconventional tactics that are sure to raise a few eyebrows to some folks, but they have worked successfully for David, his clients and many others. The nice thing is that David gives you some many ideas to implement that you can pick and choose what you feel comfortable doing. If you only learn how to research companies and to market your skills a little better, it is worth the cost of the book. Bravo, David!

This review is from: Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Tap Into the Hidden Job Market using Social Media and 999 other Tactics Today (Paperback)

Just finished reading Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0 as I am looking to break into a new field after many years in the same industry. I’ve been a big fan of the entire Guerrilla series of books, and had the thought this would be a fresh new look at looking for work. David Perry and Jay Conrad Levinson scored a touchdown with the information they provide in this great read. I’m a voracious reader, normally downing between 2-5 books a month, and this one got dog eared quick. Obviously since the last time I looked for a job (1997) the entire landscape has changed, and I need every bit of information to help get my foot in a new door that I can get. I especially appreciated thoughts on how to find out names of staff members, so you don’t have to send the dreaded “to whom it may concern” type of cover letter with my resume, and ways to enhance my portfolio of knowledge. Highly recommended book for job hunters if you’ve been doing the same old, same old, and not having success. You’ve got to really push it, and be creative to find work, and the edge this book might provide could push you over the edge to finding that new job.

This review is from: Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Tap Into the Hidden Job Market using Social Media and 999 other Tactics Today (Paperback)

David’s book totally shifted my paradigm for job hunting. In the past I’ve used books like “Your Parachute” which helps analyze who you are, but they didn’t help me gain a job. The ‘Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters’ book has become a well-worn tome to which I refer to often.

Today’s dour economic climate demands new ways of thinking. We can’t continue searching for jobs ‘the old way.’ For those of us who aren’t 20 years old anymore, David and Jay’s book is a great source for guiding us through all of the new social media methods of connecting with key hirers both online and face-to-face. My former Fortune-100 company downsized last year. Using Guerrilla Marketing tips with Linkedin and a Guerrilla Resume format, I’ve been able to land two long-term contracting positions this year, while many former associates are still looking for a place to work.

In my current assignment, my boss actually keeps my Guerrilla Resume on his desk as a reminder of how to ‘rise above the pack’ and get noticed. David’s book has given me the confidence to step out beyond my comfort level to attain the impossible.

Thanks David and Jay for creating the best ‘job hunting’ book on the market.

I highly recommend GM4JH. Most of all, I recommend the spirit it encourages and inspires. Many job hunters I speak to are unsure of themselves, they feel powerless, even helpless in the face of the overwhelming challenge a job hunt can present. And they’re stuck doing the same-old, same-old things to get a job. In GM4JH the writers give job hunters their power back, both in terms of the spirit of the entrepreneur it encourages, and in terms of the practical strategies, tactics and tools it teaches.

It’s the kind of mindset shift that leads to never again in your career feeling scared by the job market, more and better job opportunities, more options.

I have read Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters (GM4JH) 3.0 and find the approach very interesting. With the current job market, job seekers need to understand there are job available however going with the standard approach will not help them. This book takes the status quo job search of classified and job search boards and puts the GM4JH approach on steroids! I recommend this book for anyone who does not want to be part of the crowd. For those people who are looking at ways to excell in not only the job market but life in general.

This review is from: Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Tap Into the Hidden Job Market using Social Media and 999 other Tactics Today (Paperback)

After having beat my head against the wall submitting resumes, applying for jobs, and waiting for the inevitable no response, I wondered what the heck I was doing wrong. Is the job market so bad that even someone who has been in the top 5% of income earners for almost 2 decades out of luck?

Then, I took a very small risk and bought “Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters”. This book draws boundaries around what can be something akin to herding cats. Immediately, it forces you into a definite and clear plan of action with step-by-step help from beginning your job search all the way to negotiating the deal.

What separates this book from all others who attempt to tackle this subject is the background of the authors. They are sales and marketing experts of the highest caliber. And what is a job search, interview, and job acceptance other than the sales process related to you, the candidate? The advice here is light years ahead of the typical book on this subject. They separate themselves from the pack in their tactics and techniques.

It is my hope that I do not have to compete with anyone who uses Guerrilla Marketing in the job world. Using these techniques eliminate your competition and land you in the world of sought after candidates and the employed.

This book is a well-timed update of the previous 2.0 edition. The job search methods and information presented in this update help to differentiate job seekers in this very competitive job market. The unique, bold and out-of-the-box approaches to a variety of job search challenges are refreshing and insightful. Information and instructions are also very detailed. I highly recommend this book for those who are unemployed and seeking a position as well as for those who are underemployed.

As a recruiter for law firm partners and for financial executives I’m constantly thinking “why hasn’t this person read ‘Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0’ and indeed, the whole series of guerrilla marketing books that stretch back to the 90’s? People come with entirely hackneyed ideas about the job market and have no idea what really works, so a good education is available for a person who does a little research. Start here.

In the current economy, you have to be a genius or an extremely lucky person to find a job within a couple of weeks or months. The best way to survive mental pressure is to learn how to “hunt” better.
I like this book a lot and would recommend it to anybody looking for a job. Read it from the beginning to the end… a couple of times. This book has so much information and additional resources that you would not be left wandering where else and how to look.
The best feature of this books is an avalanche of choices with expert advises and a framework for each. I cannot say that I feel comfortable with all of them, yet there are a lot to choose from. Also, the war stories are inspiring and help to move forward as somebody special (not just a commodity) on this new job market.

I was totally excited by version 2, but this book is even better. Impressively solid, but simple and put you straight to the point how to bring your job hunting campaign to new level and convert it to enjoyable journey. It will guide you through all recent changes at the job market in the gentle manner, but will also leave some space for you to challenge yourself.

P.S. Warning, this book is extremely powerful tool but only if you read it twice.

Good luck.

This review is from: Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Tap Into the Hidden Job Market using Social Media and 999 other Tactics Today (Paperback)

Being a marketing data expert, I wondered what this book would offer me that would be new. I already possessed several “secret” tricks to uncovering valuable marketing information, so I was attracted to this book, because it promised similar methods. I can’t heap the hyperbole on enough to explain how amazed I was at all of the ground breaking ideas in this book! It is absolutely phenomenal!

What I like most of all, is that even though it borders on an overwhelming amount of ideas for the job hunter, the author is able to concentrate them all into a digestible, and implementable plan of attack. This book treats your job hunt like a lion, and your future job like a zebra’s backside! I’ll report back when it works for me, as I just finished reading it, and I am now on the hunt, but I have a lot of confidence that I have just picked a winner in helping me to find my next career. It is not only a great read for job hunters, but also a great read for anyone looking to use the internet and other modern tools to make things happen.

In this highly competitive job market, you need all the insider tips you can get. After reading this book (twice!), it is clear that I was just another resume on the stack. I needed a major overhaul in every way, including my resume and cover letter, and especially how I was marketing myself. It provides a great deal of information on how to correctly use social media to your advantage when little other people are (or maybe no one is, depending on your industry). I wish I could keep this info to myself, but of course that would be greedy ;). In all seriousness, this is a MUST BUY if you have had no luck in your job search.

There is a very large myth in the job hunting world today … “Put my resume out on as many job boards as possible” … WRONG !

The goal is to be found through viral marketing. This book is an excellent start at building your online brand using multiple applications and sites. I purchased the book primarily to learn more about how to maximize the use of LinkedIn but I learned so much more than that. I strongly recommend this book for those looking to maximize their potential opportunities using the online tools available today.

This review is from: Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Tap Into the Hidden Job Market using Social Media and 999 other Tactics Today (Paperback)

This book provides a good overall “job search process”, much like many other job search books, but its strength is in it’s very detailed and specific examples of how to market yourself and your skills. It is particularly strong regarding social media and other online mediums that have become so prominent and can make or break your job search success.

This book does particularly well with the following:
1. Describing how recruiters use LinkedIn and other online sources to find job candidates
2. How job seekers need to position themselves to appear, and appear attractive, to recruiters
3. Provides numerous ideas for how to get “in” to companies you want to work for

Not all the ideas in this book will work for you, since everyone has their own style. But even if you use half the ideas in this book, it is well worth the time and money. Be prepared to spend a lot of time enacting the ideas in this book – there are so many ideas with helpful detail that you can literally spend days enacting the techniques and suggestions. It is time well spent.

This book definitely delivers!

I am an electrical engineer with 20+ years of experience and have never had to look for a job before … recruiters and head hunters have always found me without me having to hunt them down. But that was at a time when a lot of employers were looking for fewer people like me.

In this day and age, with the hard economy and high unemployment everywhere, and a lot more people with similar or even better credentials than yours looking for work, you need to DIFFERENTIATE yourself in order to stand out of the crowd and be more efficient at “selling yourself”. That is exactly what this book will help you do. It contains a mint of up-to-date and pertinent information: step-by-step instructions on how to refine and give incredible “punch” to your resume and cover letters, useful links and tips to help you track the right contacts for your target companies, gain access to unlisted job openings, how to prepare for interviews, cold-calling techiques, how to use networking to establish your internet presence, and a lot more.

The book also has an associated website where you can get extra bonus material (free if you bought the book).

If you are looking for work, no matter what your field of expertise is, this is really the best $15 you’ll ever spend.

If insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, expecting different results, then I have been flat-out crazy in my job search. I’ve followed the old “tried and true” conventional wisdom that I’ve used for years. And, when I have experienced uninspiring results (which happens a lot in this economy), my conclusion has been that I must not be doing enough so I’ve applied myself even more strenuously to those same activities. What a discouraging, depressing, and fruitless grind! If you want out of that cycle as badly as I did, you absolutely must get this book (read it – use it).

I’m not going to go into all the specifics about the tips and techniques – other reviewers here have done a much better job than I can. I want to touch on two critical intangibles David and Jay have given me through this book – HOPE and PERMISSION.

As I mentioned, a job search can be a real grind – my hat is off to anyone else going through the process. It takes a tremendous amount of emotional wherewithal to keep slugging away at it. And for those of you who have done it my way, you have my respect for your tenacity and my sympathy as well. Everybody wants to be wanted and a traditional job search means a lot of rejection. I don’t care who you are – that’s a tough thing to drag your butt out of bed to face every morning.

Years ago I considered myself a poor negotiator. I had a lot of underlying beliefs about it that just weren’t serving me well, but I couldn’t get past them. They were borne out of, and repeatedly reinforced, by opinions of others around me (conventional “wisdom”). At the recommendation of a trusted colleague, I attended a negotiation training seminar. It was like someone threw a switch! Today I am a very successful negotiator, and reflecting back on that pivotal moment, I can see that what I really needed (in addition to solid tips and techniques) was permission from a credible source to leave my old ways behind. And, the techniques were so effective that I almost felt like I was getting away with something.

Well, my experience with this book has been similar, but much more so. I needed PERMISSION to break out of the job search conventional wisdom fed to me by (well-intentioned) peers and professionals. I needed someone who was credible, expert and proven to give me a much-needed wake-up call to break out of my rut. If you are anything like me, you may have even considered many of the techniques in the book before but dismissed them as too maverick or “out there.” First, they aren’t. It’s a new world out there – the old way of job seeking no longer works. If it was working for you and me, we wouldn’t be looking for books like this. Second, if you like what you’ve been getting, keep on doing what you’re doing. Not me. Not any longer. I want results and I want to take the shortest path to them, working smarter, not harder. This book is the answer. And, the techniques are so effective, I again feel like I’m getting away with something (which is a lot of fun)!

It doesn’t take much to see how David and Jay have given me the other intangible I mentioned: HOPE. The simple truth is that there hasn’t been one thing they recommend that hasn’t gotten me results. I get traction immediately with every technique I employ. Plus, I need these victories along the way. They help to feed my motivation, actually make the process exciting and enjoyable, and propel me dramatically down the path towards my goal. That’s something I never expected in a job search – enjoyment. And, the real bonus is the steps I’m taking now not only help me in my present search. I’m convinced that they are setting me up for much further down the road. I’m confident that if I ever find myself in this position again, I’ll not have to worry much at all because I will have already taken the steps to ensure that I’ve graduated from someone who looks for jobs to someone who is sought out for jobs. Don’t you want the same? This book is your solution!

5.0 out of 5 stars Guerrilla Marketing For Job Hunters 3.0, August 15, 2011

This review is from: Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Tap Into the Hidden Job Market using Social Media and 999 other Tactics Today (Paperback)

I’m a recent college graduate, so the whole job hunting process was really intimidating. To be honest once I graduated I didn’t really know where to start, or what to do. I started reading Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters in the bookstore of my college, and I was hooked. Not only did it provide step by step directions on what to start with, there are also an abundant amount of examples to learn from. It’s very interactive, for a book that is. And just when you get overwhelmed and about to skip or skim through to the next chapter the book tells you not to. It’s extremely motivational and informative. Completely worth buying!

If you’re serious about finding your next opportunity – you need to read this book. David and Jay lay out the secrets you need to know to tap into the hidden job market. Up to 80% of all jobs are never posted ANYWHERE – so that means if you’re looking at the posting boards, you’re only seeing about 20% of what’s out there. Take it from a career HR Professional – Their Guerrilla tactics are not for the faint of heart, but if you’re serious about getting noticed and getting hired, this book is for you.

This review is from: Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Tap Into the Hidden Job Market using Social Media and 999 other Tactics Today (Paperback)

I recently graduated from university and after weeks of applying for jobs online with no success, I stumbled upon David’s book on Amazon and it has been an eye opener and has radically changed my job search strategy. This book has empowered me and made me more proactive and aggressive in my job search.

Thanks to the advice in this book, in one week alone, I’ve opened a linkedin and twitter account to boost my online presence, revamped my resume, and I’ve also started networking at events with people in the industry. This has led to me meeting more people and has also opened up contacts and referrals for me. I’ve achieved faster and effective results in one week alone thanks to this book that I would not have achieved if I had stuck to the traditional job search strategy. David also gives advice and access to tools that I wish my career counselors at school would have given me.

So bottom line is that I definitely recommend this book and I’ve already advised my friends who are also looking for jobs fresh out of university, to pick it up.

There are things that book says to do that will definitely get you noticed by recruiters.

If you want to understand why Linkedin’s IPO shot through the sky today, simply read this book! More importantly, if you want to position yourself for enhanced professional success, don’t just read this book; instead, devour this book and take action.

Now, I must say that I have read numerous books on interviewing and job hunting. Before purchasing “Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0”, I considered Martin Yate’s Knock’em Dead series to be the Holy Grail for job hunters. Although, I still value the Knock’em Dead series, I was blown away by the powerful, yet practical, content of this book. Frankly, the strategies in this book take job hunting (career positioning) to a whole new level. It’s Job hunting on Marketing Steroids!

Anyhow, maybe I was little technically ignorant, but I am truly impressed with this book’s suggestions. Within two days of updating my linkedin profile, I was contacted by a corporate recruiter regarding a position. Actually, there are several chapters, such as “Linkedin–the 800-Pound Gorilla”, that are easily worth the book’s cost.

Simply put, I highly recommend this book–buy it, read it, and take action. Of course, if you decided not to read this book, you can be assured, there are plenty of other job candidates who will read it and put it’s suggestions to good use.

5.0 out of 5 stars A JOB HUNTER’S MUST . . . . ., May 19, 2011

William Mikanovich “Big Dog” (Mesa, AZ) – See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)

This review is from: Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Tap Into the Hidden Job Market using Social Media and 999 other Tactics Today (Paperback)

There are many job-search books in today’s market. Hence; the publication that stands parsecs ahead of the rest is David Perry’s publication, `Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters’. Today’s job-search has drastically changed from yesteryear. I figured that I needed something different to help me stand out from everyone else. I found it in Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters. job today.

Dave’s publication is written in a style that is engaging and very readable, but is absolutely jam packed with advice and tips that will put you so far ahead of the competition.

Mr. Perry’s coverage of Social Media is excellent. I had been a relative tenderfoot on this point, but this book has convinced me that “being out there” is so important to anyone’s search and to attracting the kind of attention that will help you get that new job. Again, there is just a plethora of advice and tips on how best to use this to your advantage.

I also really, really appreciated the sections on working with recruiters and networking. I zeroed in on a number of good tips that I did not find in any other books on this topic that I read previously.

In short, if you are searching for a new job or know someone that is then this book is a must. There is an old saying – `if you keep doing what you’ve done, you’ll keep getting what you’ve gotten.’ This book helps you break out of the old, traditional and ineffective mindset of conventional job searching and learn new ways to conduct an effective job search campaign in today’s job market.

After I found out that my job was being consolidated into another company in another state, I decided it was time that I got serious about my future. I have recognized, for some time now, that the market and the world is changing and how I was going to approach this situation had to change also. I read this book based primarily on the reviews that I found here and I have to admit that I came away from this book thinking that anyone, whether a job hunter or not, should consider the concepts presented here. While not everything may be of use to everybody, I do think that everyone can cull some very valuable ideas and information from this book and come away from it with enough tools to help them move into the future. I should have done this sooner…

This review is from: Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Tap Into the Hidden Job Market using Social Media and 999 other Tactics Today (Paperback)

I once came across the definition of insanity as “doing the same things over and over again, expecting different results”. All too true. As a struggling jobseeker, I’ve been having limited success sending out countless resumes to job postings, sometimes getting to the interview stage but never getting any offers. I almost felt like going insane after spinning my wheels for so long. Indeed the world and the job market has changed, and employers are becoming extremely choosy about who they want on their team. With this in mind, I knew I had to take a different approach if I wanted to have an edge over the competition.

I’ve often heard about the “Guerrilla Marketing for Job-Hunters” and the success stories of struggling job seekers who have landed a position in a short span of time after applying the tactics in the book. I thought “What have I got to lose – it’s something different, so I’ll give it a shot.” and purchased the third edition last week. Boy, am I glad I did!

There’s an absolute goldmine filled with ideas and tactics that can help you stand out from the crowd! Not only is it a matter of what and who you know, but increasingly more of a matter off who knows you – especially in the online world! The key here is to be found by recruiters and employers, not only through offline means like the guerrilla resume, but through social media as well. Every chapter is dedicated to every step of the guerrilla job search – from outlining the plan and mindset to leveraging social media tools (LinkedIn, Zoominfo, Facebook, Twitter, etc.) to your advantage to interviewing techniques to negotiating the offer.

Mind you, I’ve just finished reading the book and have taken some steps to shake up my job search and do something different. For me, the journey is just beginning but I feel more confident than before! Who knows, I might even put up a success story of my own in the near future!

This review is from: Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Tap Into the Hidden Job Market using Social Media and 999 other Tactics Today (Paperback)

Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters is well worth the investment. I loved it. It is a great resource offering a wealth of information for any job hunter. From the shop floor to the top floor as they say – they cover the basics, teach some advanced tactics and actually SHOW you how to succeed through real life examples of job hunters who’ve dared to stop appearing average.

I had been out of work for a year. As a job seeker I felt I needed more than just the book. I wanted a structured program geared along the lines of the things the book talks about. For that reason I contacted Mark Haluska. He is a Certified Guerrilla Job Search Coach and a longtime colleague of one of the authors, David Perry. I decided to join the 10 week Guerrilla Job Search Boot Camp that Mark ran and guess what? I start my new job this upcoming Monday!

The book and the program are great because I now really understand what employers are looking for and how to appeal to their `business side’. They opened my eyes. I know I can get a job now whenever I want – regardless of the economic climate. That to me is the biggest benefit.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Must-Have Guide for College Graduates, May 10, 2011

By

Danielle L.See all my reviews

This review is from: Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Tap Into the Hidden Job Market using Social Media and 999 other Tactics Today (Kindle Edition)

“For most college grads, it’s been a really tough market. Last year about one in four college graduates actually exited college with a job.” -Don Peck, The Atlantic

We’ve all heard these quotes before. Especially those of us who happen to be recent college graduates. In the months following graduation we’ve kept busy, done volunteer work, submitted our resumes and waited for that right opportunity to come along and rescue us from temp agencies, coffee joints and our parents’ basements. The longer we wait, the more hopeless things seem and the closer our unpaid student loans loom.

If you are or are about to become a recent college graduate, the best money you’ll ever spend will be on this book. The job market has changed drastically since our parents’ and professors’ were in our position and their advice, however well-meaning, is dated. Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0 is the inspiring and cutting-edge guide to finding your path in an ever-changing world.

With a wide variety of tactics and strategies, this book offers advice for all personality types. Much of what you’ll read will be surprising, but underneath seemingly flashy and bold tactics (like the coffee cup technique) is good old-fashioned people sense. When reading, I’m reminded of the texts and talks to which I was exposed when navigating the college admissions process. There is, however, one big exception: going Guerrilla is a lot more fun.

It’s more like a textbook and you can read the chapters in any order you choose. Make sure you access the GM4JH.com website to download additional materials that will get you on the fast-track. The content on Guerrilla resumes’ and how to use LinkedIn is well worth the cost of the book. I am more excited than ever to pursue my dream job and you will be too. Mike

This review is from: Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Tap Into the Hidden Job Market using Social Media and 999 other Tactics Today (Paperback)

I purchased this book on Amazon after hearing about it through a number of LinkedIn members.

I am currently employed; however, I started the job search several months ago, and even for the currently employed the job search process in this market is a disaster. Following the “traditional” process of posting on Monster.com, CareerBuilder, etc. did not seem to be working for me, and this book helped to explain what I had already found out through endless hours of searching, applying, etc.

Not only did this book explain why the traditional process wasn’t working, but it provided suggestions to more efficiently use my time/energy. The suggestions in this book to find the next opportunity using non-conventional means was definitely refreshing, and I have already had some positive activity as a result. It is still too early to comment if it led me to my dream job, but I can say that it has definitely led me in the right direction.

I highly recommend this book to the employed and unemployed alike who are struggling with their job search, and are looking for a concise explanation for how best to use their time/effort.

Doug Hieatzman (Spring Grove, PA United States) – See all my reviews

This review is from: Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Tap Into the Hidden Job Market using Social Media and 999 other Tactics Today (Paperback)

I’m a IT professional, that has a unique set of skills, and was combing the job websites, sending out resumes, and calling people asking them if they were hiring. I did this for 5 months. Spinning my wheels. I though I was doing everything I could.

Then, I was looking at the local bookstore of job hunting books, and I’ve used Jay’s books for marketing to great success in my business. I figured it was 20 bucks, and what more worse could it get than unemployed.

I read the book twice cover to cover, and it bolstered my confidence. The stuff in this book, like sending coffee cups, and getting people to read you resume, writing a radically different “gorilla” resume goes against the “norm”. As a fairly recent College graduate this book breaks all the “rules” I was honestly nervous about sending out the things mentioned in this book.

WOW, 4 offers in 3 weeks, and the phone keeps ringing. HR and recruiters, are like, “wow, I’m sure someone with YOUR BACKGROUND doesn’t NEED work, because your SO qualified, and when I saw the resume, and letter I knew I HAD to HIRE YOU.”

direct quote. I’m not paid to write this, I want other people to have the same results that I did. This book could be sold at a seminar for 5 times the price. It’s bleeding edge internet search, how to get a list of more qualified contacts than you ever dreamed of to prospect for a new job, career change or better paying job. Templates, guidelines, and even specific industry specific tips for grads, corporate, government .

This book gave me a huge pay raise, and some amazing skills in my search. I regret not buying it 4 months ago. I wish they would take this book off the market, the information in it is that good.

This review is from: Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 3.0: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Tap Into the Hidden Job Market using Social Media and 999 other Tactics Today (Paperback)

After having read so many other job search books lately, I was looking for something different, something unconventional, when I found Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters. It has been a while since I last looked for a new job, and with so many other folks looking for jobs now too I knew I needed something different to help me stand out from everyone else. I found it in Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters!! This book is BY FAR the best book I have read on the topic of searching for a job today.

Not only is the book written in a style that is engaging and very readable, but is absolutely jam packed with advice and tips that will put you so far ahead of the competition.

The very first thing I did was follow the advice on how to create a “Guerrilla Resume” and a “Guerrilla Cover Letter”. These are much different than the resumes and cover letters touted by so many other job search books. But if done properly, they will get you noticed! They are certainly working for me.

The coverage of Social Media is excellent. I had been a relative neophyte on this point, but this book has convinced me that “being out there” is so important to your search and to attacting the kind of attention that will help you get that new job. Again, there is just a plethora of advice and tips on how best to use this to your advantage.

I also really appreciated the sections on working with recruiters and networking. I picked up a number of good tips that I did not find in any other books on this topic that I read previously.

In short, if you are searching for a new job or know someone that is then this book is a must. There is an old saying – “if you keep doing what you’ve done, you’ll keep getting what you’ve gotten”. This book helps you break out of the old, traditional and ineffective mindset of conventional job searching and learn new ways to conduct an effective job search campaign in today’s job market.
