MyNewJobHunt: Day 1 Week 1 for a new user.

Get Paid for Finding Your Dream Job

Have you applied for a job lately?

How’d that work out?

Probably not the way you expected.  Especially if you’ve been reading news stories where employers complain about skill shortages

So, if you don’t mind my asking…

  1. How many times this week have you applied to an online job board OR responded to a job posting—and heard nothing back?
  2. How many times have you sent in a job application and resume and cover letter with no success at all?
  3. And how many times have you written and “re-written” your resume and cover letters without any response whatsoever?

Let me tell you how you can avoid applying to job after job on the same job boards as everyone else— avoid being just another resume in the pile —and land the ideal, high-paying position you’re really after – Your Dream Job!

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.

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

It’s 2019. 

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 today … yet the online job board industry continues to lie 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”, resume writers, 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.

The rules for getting a job have changed!

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 employer’s attention.

The result – they get jobs faster, with less effort and at 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 in 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 1.25 to double what was originally posted!

They are landing new jobs in weeks instead of months.  

  • (Like Steve Cobain from Philadelphia, who had several employers show up at his home to try and talk him in to taking their offer instead of the one he had already accepted. Play the video below.)

Why listen to me?

Good question.   

Hello, my name is David Perry and I know a thing or two about job search success.  I wrote the book – literally – that changed job hunting for hundreds of thousands of people in a 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 on what it now takes to stand out from the crowd and get hired in the digital economy. But I’m not a writer… I’m a head hunter.  For the past 30 years I’ve been Managing Director 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, 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 Godin.  Jay 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 and numerous paid speaking gigs around the world.

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. 

So you might be wondering how many interviews Kevin got in a town with 65% unemployment?  He had 35 initial interviews, 28 call backs and 24 offers in an almost eight week period.  Getting 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 an issue. 

Surprisingly, keeping track of all his interviews and the copious notes he was keeping on the questions he was asking.  That was a 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 each time

That was our start.  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. 

Over the last ten years my partners and I also began to notice certain job seekers get jobs quickly. Very quickly.  They simply soared ahead as the economy improved.  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 wanted 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, the first edition.  So, I took the initiative to reach out to about 3000 of them to ask exactly what they had done to land jobs so quickly and at higher rates of pay.

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.

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 often say 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 want your services, in your industry and 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.

Wouldn’t it be great to have these career insights—24 hoGet Paid for Finding Your Dream Job 3urs a day?

Suppose you had professional recruiters and HR experts who knew the new tactics and 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.

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 seeking faults 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.

Even if you currently hold 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.

Using the best job strategies will get you employed.

    2. To monitor and help manage your progress – an Education Information Management System (EIMS) which rests over top of the system.
My new job hunt application

It even has special, power packed career development and relationship strategies that are being used by successful job hunters today after they land their dream jobs.  These strategies help you not only get a job today, but provide you with continuing job options (to chose at your discretion) for months and even years to come.

Job boards hate us … you shouldn’t.

Job boards are NOT built for your success.   

MyNewJobHunt is the solution job boards and social networking sites should have built.  They didn’t though – not because they couldn’t – but because it’s profitable for them to keep you unemployed.  

Instead of helping you find meaningful work, they turned you into a commodity for employers.  In other words, as a job hunter, you became their product. Not only do they sell employers ad space and special recruitment tools to source and manipulate your profile, but also access to your online digital identity.  High unemployment and churn benefit them!

With MyNewJobHunt, you’ll get the insider information that will benefit you your entire life.  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 to land quickly.

How fast can YOU get hired?

On average, MyNewJobHunt Users land in 1/1o th the national average

According to the Us Labor Board of Statistics, the average job hunter takes 39 weeks to land a new job our Users averaged 3-4 weeks.

Math doesn’t lie

I love math… I know crazy eh? 

It’s interesting to note that over the course of those 39 weeks, the average job hunter spends just 48 minutes a day job looking for a job. 

We’ve been told this is mostly because after they’ve checked the job boards for new opportunities and left another voicemail to follow up the jobs they’ve applied for, they don’t know what to do.   Here’s where the math part comes in.   

Average Job Hunter 

39 weeks x 5 days/week x 3/4 of an hour = 146.25 hours

MyNewJobHunt User 

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 teh 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 is treating looking for a job as their full time job.  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 doing this math trick up on stage.  When I’m  finished writing out the math, the audience just goes silent … and that’s when I know that they get it!

How much is unemployment costing 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.

OK. That’s the bad news.

Now, the good news:

You can beat the system and “cherry pick” the job of your dreams in days instead of weeks … 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 would do for free, if you weren’t getting paid!

  • Zero in on the best jobs, at 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.

DON’T commit yet!

Review the Success Stories section first.

You should go read all the testimonials, watch the candid videos, and listen to the audio interviews of people just like you many of whom had tried everything under the sun unsuccessfully.  Then they joined the 10 Week Guerrilla Job Search boot Camp which as I explained was the precursor to MyNewJobHunt.

Then and only then can you apply for the program. 

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.  You register through the Register Now button below. 

We are fully on your side. The online platform and all the guerrilla job search course material cost more than a million dollars to create.  The inaugural users of the system paid us upwards of $4999 USD to go through the program, and fine a job.  Here we are ten years later and we’re going to pay you for landing your dream job.  The future is in your hands.

Do good in the world.

Sincerely,

David-Perry-Signature
