Dream job boot camp

Finally, find a better job without quitting the one you have.

Finding work you’ll love, getting the exact job you want, with the company you want, is either highly improbable or a cinch. 

It’s highly improbable if you play by the old rules and go about your task in the old-fashioned way.  But it can be cinch if you play by the the new rules and go about your task in the ways suggested by David Perry in MyNewJobHunt.

I have designed this job search system for the inside out, that means that as a professional headhunter {30+ years} who knows the intricacies, the secrets, and the overlooked tactics when it comes to finding your ideal job.  If you’re willing to look upon the task of finding that job as a job unto itself, you’re going to reap exceptional rewards from MyNewJobHunt.

MyNewJobHunt contains shortcuts and tricks, but nothing unethical.

It contains ultra-solid advice along with the rich details of landing the job of a lifetime – your Dream Job.

If you’re honestly motivated to take complete control of your life and your future, you’ll follow the program step-by-step.  In my opinion, not one exercise, strategy or tactic has been wasted and the closer you stick to the program the better job you’ll land.  It’s that simple.

The program is not about the theory of securing employment.

Instead, it’s filled with job-finding wisdom and actual things you must say in your cover letter, on your resume and during your interviews.  Nothing is left to chance. Every detail is covered.

Although this appears to be about getting a job, it’s really about living a fulfilling life – because that’s the end result of obtaining your ideal job. 

Few people really  understand that. They see a job as a way to earn money rather that a way to thrive and prosper while living the life they’ve always dreamed of living.  The U.S. Department of Commerce tells us that 80 percent of employed people are not really content with their jobs.

Our Clients – that is people who follow this advice – will be in the 20 percent of people who would’t dream of leaving their job. That can be you – but only if you take action based upon what you’ll learn once you’re on the program.

Although David Perry has achieved remarkable success as an executive recruiter, we believe that he wouldn’t have achieved as much if a program such as this existed before he began his career.  Following it, you’ll learn as much as or more than many current recruiters know.  Acting upon it, you’ll surpass your most ambitious fantasies.  For the real truth is that landing the job of your dreams isn’t as difficult as you may think.

It’s all a matter of being your own headhunter

And that’s exactly what you’ll learn in the material ahead.

You’ll learn how to navigate masterfully in a new economy, in a world more high-tech than it has ever been before.  You’ll learn to see things from the standpoint of the people who will hire you rather that from your own perspective. There’s an old Chinese proverb that says,

“If you have foresight, you’re blessed, but if you have insight, you’re a thousand times blessed.”

For the real truth is that landing the job of your dreams is not as difficult as you may think. 

This is a program of insight.  It’s a program about you – your future, your sense of well being, your life.  Getting the kind of that can change your life for the good – forever – isn’t a matter of of being on top of most of the details.  It’s a matter of mastering all the details. And that’s what you’re about to learn. We welcome you to the MyNewJobHunt platform, these insights, this information, and most of all, to the life you’ve dreamed of living.  This is the kind of programs that makes those dreams come true.

There’s a reason it’s hard to get a job…

And it’s not your fault.  

Nobody teaches you how to get a job.  You’re sort of thrust into it the day after you graduate.  Typically, it’s not something you look forward to doing.

The reality is this: the old school rules of applying online through job boards and career portals, of using “traditional” resumes and cover letters – well they simply don’t work anymore.

The rules for getting a job have changed!

Did you know that 90% of the ways you’re applying for jobs today are useless?

Employers have changed who, what, where, when, why, and how they hire.  Which means you had better keep up, or risk being left behind..

  1. Much of the so-called “career advice” out there typically refers to job search tactics that no longer work anywhere today … yet the ‘career industry’ continues to promote these falsehoods to you so they can maximize their profits.
  2. Traditional resumes, cover letters and online applications are actually the LEAST effective method of getting employed today.
  3. “Who you know” and traditional “networking” are NOT the best way to get call backs for job interviews.
  4. You DON’T need to waste your money on expensive “resume services”, downsized HR managers turned career coaches, dated resume templates or other bogus and non-effective free advice.
  5. Job boards and in particular, job boards that ask you to pay for access to “$100K” jobs… they’re all a complete waste of your time and money. Despite the misleading pitches and sales tactics, 97% of people that get work today, didn’t use a job board, let alone a job board they had to PAY for … they got their jobs through REAL connections and REAL employment strategies.

Successful job hunters don’t do the same things the average job hunter does to get hired… 

They use technology and psychology. 

They leverage the same technology and modern marketing & sales tactics used by Amazon, eBay and Facebook to close the sale – to get an employer’s attention.

The result – they get jobs faster, with less effort and higher pay.

This would seem far-fetched to the typical job seeker-but not anyone who’s being successful lately.

  • Successful job hunters get call backs the next business day.
  • They have their emails responded to the same day they apply.
  • Some get job offers so swiftly that they literally have conference calls where hiring managers are outbidding each other.

It’s less about your qualifications and experience…

And more about your approach.

Successful job hunters using up-to-date approaches will get more job offers than 50 “traditional” job hunters, and in 92% less time.

  • They get their moving expenses covered.
  • They get additional signing bonuses or additional vacation days.
  • They get offered unpublished jobs, which ordinarily wouldn’t be accessible by the everyday job seeker.

In almost every case,  successful job hunters—without any additional work—get paid at rates 25% to 100% more than was originally posted OR they had a job created just for them where previously the job did not exist!  

Like these people they are landing new jobs in days, or weeks, instead of months.

Why listen to me?

That’s a very good question.   

Hello, my name is David Perry and I know a thing or two about job search success.  I wrote the book – literally – which has changed job hunting for hundreds of thousands of people in a very positive way.  The Wall Street Journal nicknamed me “The Rogue Recruiter” after writing my second book, Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters (GM4JH).  The Wall Street Journal article landed me in the May 2009 cover story of Fortune magazine.  

GM4JH effectively raised the bar and explained  what it takes to stand out from the crowd and get hired in the new digital economy: an industry 4.0 world. But I’m not really a writer… I’m a head hunter.  For the past 31 years I’ve been Managing Partner of Perry-Martel International, one of North America’s top recruiting firms. As a recruiter, I’ve helped hire more than 1100 people, in positions ranging from retail sales clerks to engineers, and from accountants to CEOs, and negotiated more than $393 million in salaries.  You’ll find me quoted in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Fortune, Forbes, HR Today, and the Boston Globe, and on TV as an employment analyst for NBC, ABC and CBC News in Canada. Go ahead and Google me.  I’ll wait.

I ‘fell’ into writing books when my best friend Kevin Watson lost his job. My first book, Career Guide for the High Tech Professional: Where the Jobs are Now and How to Land Them (Career Press, 2004), was written– after I helped Kevin land a job when the technology industry tanked.  Career Guide was endorsed by Stephan Covey, Guy Kawasaki and Seth GodinJay Conrad Levinson wrote the book’s Foreword and this resulted in my being asked to write Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters (Wiley 2005) with Jay.  Numerous paid speaking gigs around the world quickly followed.

Dream Job Boot Camp 2

But it wasn’t all roses.

Easter Friday 2008 I suffered a massive stroke which left me unable to walk, talk, read or write.  Just when Kevin needed to find a new job.  Luckily for him, my speech started coming back on Day 5 and we struck a deal to fix our situations.   Kevin would sneak back in to the hospital after visiting hours so I could prep him for interviews.  This forced me to exercise my brain which accelerated re-learning how to speak and eventually to read and write.  A fortunate coincidence.  

So you might be wondering how many interviews Kevin got in a town with 65% unemployment? More than he could juggle:  Kevin landed 35 initial interviews, 28 call backs and 24 offers in an less than seven weeks.  Getting interviews and offers turned out to not be a problem for Kevin because he was pioneering some new guerrilla tactics I had developed in my lab…  No, getting the offers wasn’t the issue. 

Keeping track of all his activities, the interviews and the copious notes he was keeping on the questions he was asking – that was the issue.  In fact it was a mini nightmare.  So, to bring some order to all of this chaos Kevin created a very simple contact management system to track the jobs he was interviewing for, as well as which resume and cover letter he had used, and when to follow up for each one.

That simple program was the start of the MyNewJobHunt platform.  But it would be Kevin’s brother Dave Watson who would go on to develop the core platform for MyNewJobHunt a few weeks short of the five year anniversary of Kevin’s sudden passing and the complete loss of all the passwords needed to access the program. 

At the same time, my partners and I also began to notice that certain job seekers landed jobs quickly. Very quickly.  And as the economy improved, they simply soared ahead faster in to better and better roles.  They where in demand and negotiating higher rates of pay.  What they were doing got them to the front of the line with any job they applied for.  Those job hunters where getting offers way faster than anyone else by using new strategies and techniques.  And strangely, they weren’t always the most qualified applicants. Professional curiosity set me off on an adventure to discover why.

What were the most successful job hunters doing?

I needed to know more.

Lucky for me, one of the side benefits of being a published author (with a large New York publisher) is that people love to ask me questions.  And it’s well known that I love talking… even more so following my recovery.

I also love to learn.  By 2006 I had 56,000+ direct connections on LinkedIn.  Mostly these where readers of Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters.   So, I took the initiative to reach out to about 3000 of them.

What I discovered was amazing:

  1. They did NOT simply post their resumes online, if at all. (like everyone else did)
  2. They rarely used the job boards (monster, dice, LinkedIn, etc.)
  3. They looked for jobs differently.  (actually, they didn’t look for jobs)
  4. They interviewed differently.  (more like auditioned)
  5. Their processes were different. (they attracted unsolicited offers)

It was easy to conclude, that compared to 97% of job hunters, the successful ones did almost everything differently. They had become true guerrilla marketers in  their careers.

Their success rate?

Well that was different too.  

They were astonishingly successful.  Over 70% of them got a job within their first two times approaching an employer directly using a combination of tools and techniques I first outlined.

This was shocking.  Even for us recruiting veterans!

But it wasn’t magic.  They simply knew how to leverage these modern job search strategies to effectively demonstrate what recruiters and hiring managers wanted.  They landed in jobs they actually wanted to do and negotiated better compensation.  They effectively managed their job search.

What can you learn from their success?

Career experts today admit success in the job market today depends…

On how and where you spend your time pursuing opportunities, not how much time you put in.  But if you accept that job hunting is your new full-time job until you land, you’ll land fast.  Very fast. More on “ The Math Behind” successful job hunting further down the page.

These career experts have discovered another key fact: it is not who you know that matters—it’s who knows you. We couldn’t agree more. And successful job hunters today are proving it.

To illustrate our point, imaging someone famous. Let’s use Tom Hanks for example.  Somebody famous like Tom Hanks probably knows a lot of people.  Maybe he knows 2,000 people by name and face.  That’s a lot of people to truly know.  But think of how many people know who Tom Hanks is across the world.

10 million? 100 million? Maybe more?  

The “awareness quotient” is clearly in his favor.  From a career perspective, you need to get people to know who you are, to build your own awareness quotient, in order to be successful in the job market today.

Now—and this is important—if you had the knowledge to quickly make a few minor career search adjustments, with things you are probably already are doing each day, that would get you exposed to the right people in the next 30 days, and you could get known by people that need your skills, in your industry and would pay a premium for your services, you could avoid doing what “everyone else” is doing in the job market and bypass your way to the top jobs and offers.

If you don’t have this knowledge…if you do not make these adjustments to your job search strategy, then you will remain in an extremely weak career position…you will continue applying for the same jobs on the same job boards with little to no success the same way most people do today.  It’s as simple as that. 

To use an analogy, you pay a mechanic—not for his work—but for his knowledge. If you had that knowledge yourself—then you would not have to pay him at all.

This is about controlling your life, so you can live the life you want, on purpose and with purpose.  Wouldn’t you rather fulfill your purpose than exist in an 8×8 cubicle slaving away at someone else’s idea of a job.

Wouldn’t it be great to have these career insights—24 hours a day?

Suppose you had access to professional recruiters and HR experts who understood the new tactics and the successful approaches to job search, at your service 24 hours a day guiding you and looking over your shoulder.  Imagine how effective and easy the new job-hunting process could be for you.

Perhaps you’ve been out of work for weeks, months, or years but now, armed with this knowledge, when you went about your job search you knew exactly what to say, what to write and what to do that would turn your efforts into results in just a couple of days.

Maybe you were just fired, let-go or downsized and you’ve got bills and debts to pay NOW.  Maybe you’ve been told you’re “under qualified” or “over qualified.”  Imagine knowing—without complicating your efforts—what would eliminate most of the job hunting mistakes you’re currently making, and instead put your name in front of the right people at the right time and in the right way getting you a job quicker and easier than ever.

Or perhaps you’re over 50 years of age and looking for work, thinking you’re at a career disadvantage….but you knew how to promote and exploit your seasoned talent, present it in the right way, to the right people that it actually gave you a competitive advantage in today’s market and get you a job faster than you ever thought possible.

Especially if you currently have a job, but you desperately need a change, this knowledge could show you a way to immediately locate and change jobs in your area of expertise, in less than one week, at more progressive companies, at higher rates of compensation, without any downside risks, saving you the $500-$4500 a “career coach” or headhunter would charge you.

This is not ‘career therapy’

Here’s insider information you will benefit from your entire life.

Career Coaches charge by the hour.  The longer you work with them, the more of your money they take.  They’re not paid for results.   Your success or failure has no impact on their bill.  

We’re not going to spend hours upon hours listening to what you want to do …  hoping you’ll have a career epiphany.  Instead, we’re going to show you how to get what you want now – and in the future – on your own.   You won’t need to pay for professional career advice ever again and the program is always available to you.

 MyNewJobHunt is comprehensive and yet incredibly easy to use.  Everything you need to land your dream job is outlined in a step-by-step fashion.  Every morning you get an itinerary which breaks down what you must do that day and the next. 

How fast can YOU get hired?

So far, on average, MyNewJobHunt Users are landing in 3 1/2 weeks. 

That’s 1/1o th the national average.  For a job they really want not just anythng available.   Think about it, according to the U.S. Labor Board of Statistics, the average job hunter takes 39 weeks to land a new job.  At that rate — can you even afford to be ‘ordinary’.  

Math doesn’t lie..

I love math… I know crazy eh? 

It’s interesting to note that over the course of those 39 – 40 weeks, the average job hunter spends just 48 minutes a day job looking for a job.  In total they will spend 146.25 hours landing a job.

They only spend 48 minutes a day because they don’t know what to do.  After they’ve checked their job boards for new opportunities, left yet another voicemail to follow up a job they applied for, they get busy around the house knocking off  their to-Do List.  Excuse me but that’s not an efficient use of time and it’s expensive to stay out of the job market that long.

MyNewJobHunt Users follow a structured program, spending 6-8 hours every day 5 days a week. They too will spend 146.25 hours in their job search but because it’s a structured search they land in 3-4 weeks, getting back to work much more quickly. 

The key is that they have a program that’s structured and where each activity you complete logically builds on the last one, preparing you thoroughly from the start to a fast finish.  That’ structure means you follow a proven path and get back to work far more quickly.  

Average Job Hunter 

39 weeks x 5 days/week x 0.75 hour = 146.25 hours


146.25 hours ÷ 40 hours (5 days x 8 hrs/day)= 3.6 weeks

You probably noticed right away that the Average Job Hunter and the MyNewJobHunt User spend 146.25 hours looking for a job.  But the MyNewJobHunt User landed a new job in around 4 weeks while the average job hunter landed in about 40 weeks.  That difference of about 36 weeks is NOT due to luck.  The MyNewJobHunt User will treat looking for a job as their full time job OR their second job – as the case may be.  They can do that because they have a daily action plan that spells out hour-by-hour, day-by-day, what has to be execute on to land that new job. 

Go ahead – do the math again if you like.  You’ll always get the same result.

It’s a known fact that when you have a plan and you’re shown exactly what to do…  AND then you actually do it… you achieve success faster.  Quicker than you ever thought possible.  Up to 10x faster than the national average!

BTW – I love showing this math equation up on stage because the audience always just goes silent … and I know that they get it!

It’s easier to find a job when you have a job.

The economy is ‘red hot’ right now but and you may be tempted to quit your job before you have another… don’t!  

How much will quitting your job cost you in lost income exactly? Well, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, the median annual income was $52,762 in 2017, (the latest year for complete figures), which means that every week you go without a job costs you about $1,014.65 in lost income — or more.

And the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics says the average job seeker was out of work for 40.2 weeks. Multiply $1,014.65 by 40.2 weeks and that means you’ll probably lose out on $40,789.08 in income while looking for work — even more if your salary is above average.

$40,789 is a lot of money, isn’t it? Factor in a mortgage, car payments, and other bills, and it only gets worse.

You can beat the system

You can Cherry Pick the job of your dreams in weeks instead of months… if you have the right information.

The same “insider” information that I’m going to give you access to in just a moment….

Where you will discover how to… 

  • Target a job that plays to your strengths and abilities — a job you might do for free, if you weren’t getting paid!

  • Zero in on the best employers, who pay the highest salary — fast — because you’ll know exactly what hiring managers really want (this transforms you from “pest” to “guest” in the minds of employers);

  • Learn how to present your skills in creative new ways that stand out in today’s hyper-competitive job market;

  • Employ little-known search engine optimization tricks used by top head-hunters (who have to make placements or starve); and

  • Build a specialized resume that’s FUN to read, speaks the language of employers and proves every claim you make.

Employers will be lining up to hire you because: 

  • We guide you through a simple method to pick your most marketable skills, in 30 seconds or less (as a result, every resume, cover letter and conversation will cut through the noise in any job market, like a hot knife through butter);

  • Lead you through the process of crafting a resume that connects directly to your ideal employer (based on 100 years of principles used in advertising copyrighting);

  • Build multiple online profiles (ZoomInfo, LinkedIn, Twitter and/or Facebook) profile that get found and read, and make the phone ring with interview offers

  • Include a pre-interview worksheet to structure your research, a daily plan & scorecard that enables you to track your progress; and

  • Details on dozens of alternate ways to land an interview – with action steps you won’t find anywhere else online.

We Will Pay You for Finding Your Dream Job

That’s not a typo.  Here’s how this works:

When you land a job tell us (there’s a button for that in the program) and we will send you a link to join our ‘Alumni Program” so that when you tell your friends,  they can also join.  You will get $50 and they will save $50 discount.  Win-Win-Win.  So, the only limitation on how much money you can earn is how many friends you have.  So, as you can see, we are fully on your side. This online platform and all the guerrilla job search course material cost more than a million dollars to create – but your investment is just $1197 USD.  That’s a bargain considering inaugural users paid $4999. 

No one else pays you for landing your dream job and spreading the word.  Just seems fair.
