My name is David Perry, I am a professional headhunter and occasional author.
Following nearly every search I’ve done since 1986, I’ll have several well qualified individuals who weren’t selected. Inevitably I’d deliver the news to the unsuccessful candidates, promise to keep them in mind for other searches, perhaps make a few MPC calls (time permitting), then move on.
While writing the 1st edition of Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters, I became hyper-aware of just how broken the job market is. However, it took my presenting to a disheartened audience in Detroit to really drive home how dysfunctional it is. It’ was sad.
That’s probably why I propositioned the crowd. I guaranteed that I could take any 7 people in the audience, put them through a job search boot camp and guarantee them a job for a one-time cost of $49.
I admit it was pretty ballsy. I didn’t know any of these people. At the time Detroit had an unemployment rate of 38%. Moreover $49 was a lot of money for most of these people. Many more than 7 hands shot up quickly. I only took the first 7.
Flying home the next day in a panic it was dawning on me that I’d made a public deceleration that my book’s tactics would absolutely work – under any circumstances. My partner told me I was nuts – but he’d stand behind me.
Fortunately I work well under pressure … less than a week later I had a syllabus and the first few weeks of the new 10 Week Guerrilla Job Search Boot Camp. Everyone landed a new job. The rest, as they say, is history.
Or was it? That night on stage in 2009 was the genesis for the MyNewJobHunt platform. In the intervening decade I’ve run dozens of Virtual Boot Camps all over the world gradually increasing the cost to $4999 USD. Making the job search boot camp affordable for everyone is why I created the web based version with my partners.
MyNewJobHunt.com houses the most successful and up-to-date job search program in the world. But it’s much more than just the guerrilla job search content. Today, it’s essentially SalesForce.com meets eHarmony but for job hunters. With its built in CRM program this is a set-it-and-forget-it platform that permits job hunters to manage and advance their careers.
Now, I have no doubt that as a professional recruiter you could decide to create your own platform – but why would you? You’d need to; invest a few hundred thousand dollars; write your own best-selling series of books; create your own job board and integrate in to a job seeker dashboard. So you could do this yourself, or you could simply get paid to give people, whom you can’t place anyway, a huge discount on this program and be a local hero.
Who is MyNewJobHunt Designed For?
- Recruiters who have candidates they can’t place at the moment but with whom they’d like to remain top of mind;
- Recruiters who have a lot of candidates contact them which are outside their niche;
- New grads entering the workforce;
- Veterans who want to integrate into a civilian workforce; and
- New immigrants.
So, as a professional recruiter you can now help every job hunter who ever contacts you no matter their background if for no other reason than they could be a client when they next land a job … and it’s the right thing to do.
As an Affiliate all you have to do is point job hunters to MyNewJobHunt.com after you give them your Unique Discount Code. They get an instant – and quite substantial discount – and you get paid. In addition to the candidate’s enduring gratitude, you make a little extra money and they’re prepared to interview better the next time you send them out.
