Millions of people all across the country are miserable in their jobs. They’re stressed and even burned out. Some are biding their time till retirement, hoping they won’t get laid off before then. And that’s if they’re lucky enough to have a job in the first place. So what would be the logical New Year’s resolution for most of them? Get a new and improved job.
And thanks to Pam Jonsson’s new “Great Job!” system, many of those unemployed and unhappily employed people can now not only find a job, but find a job they will actually enjoy.
What makes “Great Job! The Secret to Finding a Job You Love” different from all those other job-finding books on the market?
Most “normal” books start with making you record what you’ve been doing all along. Of course, what that will get you – and that’s if you’re lucky – is more of the same. Great Job! approaches looking for a job very differently.
Instead of starting with your official credentials, you’re asked to explore what you enjoy. You’re asked to look back over your past jobs and pin down exactly what you liked – and what you disliked – about each of them.
That will give you plenty of material to work with as you design your new, perfect job.
And “Great Job!” doesn’t just stop there. Next, armed with your information about what kind of job would make you happy, it guides you through doing your research as you go about finding your perfect job – online and offline.
Unlike those books that teach you how to submit your resume all over the place, Pam tells you to hold off on giving your resume to anyone. What you’ll get instead is the most thorough guide for how to tap into the hidden job market I’ve ever seen.
What’s included in this system? A comprehensive downloadable book that doubles as a workbook. A series of audio files which are an extensively annotated version of the ebook. And if you get the deluxe version of the program, you’ll also get an entire online course along with it. This course accompanies you as you do your research and follow the steps on the path to your perfect job, providing you with much additional helpful information and support.
In a nutshell, “Great Job!” is a unique system that helps people find jobs that are a perfect fit. And not just based on a few qualities that would fit in a resume, but in a much more comprehensive way. We’re talking perfect fit in terms of corporate culture, management personalities, the kind of job someone is expected to do. It’s a job that fits the person, not the other way round.
As I read it, parts of it reminded me of Barbara Sher’s “Wishcraft” and Richard Bolles’ “What Color Is Your Parachute,” but “Great Job!” goes far beyond those books. It’s a perfect combination of getting you to reach for the stars and of providing the actual step ladders that will help you get there.
Now you may wonder – isn’t that a lot to ask, especially at a time when people are worrying about lay-offs? Not at all. In times of economic pressure, employers are under a great deal of pressure too. Now more than ever, they need good employees. And if you think about it, employees who feel their job is a great fit for them are going to be more productive and dependable than those who just suffer through their miserable jobs day in and day out. This means happy employees are just the kind of employees their bosses need. So it’s a win-win for both sides.
One thing worth noting is that Great Job focuses mainly on professionals. The kinds of questions it asks, and the approaches it suggests for making contact are especially suitable for those in the corporate world and for other professionals, including medical and legal professionals. But not exclusively. In fact, the system is comprehensive enough to accommodate a very broad range of professions and levels of experience. So if you get started and think that this will work mostly for corporate types, don’t give up too soon. You too will find plenty of information that can help you find your own perfect job.
In case you’re curious: Pam shares her own personal story in the book. You’ll find out that once Pam discovered the system, she went on to find several great jobs throughout her career. That’s one of the key benefits of this system. No longer will you feel forced to stay with a job that turned sour just because you’re afraid to leave. Once you’ve mastered Pam’s system, you’ll know you can always find a new perfect job. And with that message, “Great Job!” is probably the most uplifting book I’ve come across in a long time!
Pam has helped numerous people find theirs in her work as a career counselor and expert. And if “Great Job!” is any indication, she’ll soon be helping hundred of thousands of people around the country find their own great jobs too.
