Ignite the Power of “YOU” in Your Job Search Journey
by Robert W. Plummer, Jr.
Unlike most books on the job search process, which only touch on interviewing skills, resumes, or networking, Ignite the Power of ‘YOU’ in Your Job Search Journey focuses on the foundational step of Personal Discovery. In this book, Plummer will show you how to take inventory of yourself—the traits and attributes that make you who you are—and how to establish your personal brand. Highlighting this key step in the job search process will make the difference in getting the job you want instead of getting hidden in a sea of candidates.
