As a techie, you have a tougher time finding and winning the right job. Companies are more demanding. Just like you, your competition is smart, tech-savvy, and resourceful. Cookie-cutter job hunting skills aren’t enough. Land the Tech Job You Love gives you the background and the hard-won wisdom to leapfrog those who play by the old rules.

You’ll learn how to find the job you want that fits you and your employer. You’ll uncover the hidden jobs that never make it into the classifieds or Monster. You’ll start making and maintaining the connections that will drive your future career moves.

Create a resume by understanding the hiring manager, not by archaic conventional wisdom. Write cover letters that sell your background. Assemble a portfolio of work and rethink the interview to show-not tell-that you are the best person for the job.

Land the Tech Job You Love pulls no punches. It’s peppered with real-life stories about what works, and hilarious tales of what doesn’t. It lays out the details for what gets you an interview-and gets you hired-in a job in the technical world that makes you happy.


"(Rated 9/10) This book will definitely help you; and it provides insight that will enable you to decide whether the grass really is greener on the other side."

I never do mind giving money for books and this definitely has my eye. I’d still be interested in hearing some readers’ feedback first though. There’s a lot of bogus job hunting advice out there and I am curious what does this book bring to the table.
