The 2-Hour Job Search was released in bookstores and online by Random House’s Ten Speed Press on March 6th, 2012. (View one job seeker’s blog about using the process at 2hourjob.blogspot.com.)
Online job postings have fundamentally changed how people search for a job. Hiring managers increasingly rely on referrals to avoid reviewing hundreds of resumes per posting. However, job seekers crave the perceived efficiency that an online jobsite offers, pouring countless hours into an inherently ineffective approach.
Instead of providing laundry lists of “tips” which readers must trial-and-error through, The 2-Hour Job Search offers step-by-step, time-limited instructions for the most frustrating part of finding work — getting a first interview. This science-based process splits the job search into manageable pieces, each requiring at most 15 minutes, to help those looking for work conduct the best job search possible.
