The 6 Reasons You'll Get The Job
What Employers Look for - Whether They Know It or Not

Author: Debra Angel MacDougall and Elisabeth Harney Sanders-Park (Softcover, 272 pages)


What Are Employers Really Looking for?
It's Not What You Think.

More people than ever are applying for the same few jobs. Surfing job boards and submitting a dozen résumés a day just doesn't work. The 6 Reasons You'll Get the Job shows you exactly how to tailor your pitch and stand out from the crowd so that you get hired.

Talent alone will not get you the job. All the candidates on the short list have the ability to do the work, so what makes one candidate stand out from the rest? Whether employers know it or not, intuitively they are always looking for a candidate who meets or exceeds each of six qualities:

  • Presentation
  • Ability
  • Dependability
  • Motivation
  • Attitude
  • Network

These qualities may sound familiar, but you'll be surprised at how they are understood by employers. You'll discover how to promote these six qualities to your advantage so employers take notice. You'll also learn proven strategies for finding jobs in the Hidden Market while your competition is still waiting by the phone. By mastering a few simple, often overlooked techniques, you'll get noticed by the person who has the power to hire you now.

The 6 Reasons You'll Get the Job will challenge many of your beliefs about job searching. It will teach you how to step into the employers’ shoes, so you can discover and remove all the reasons you’re getting screened out, and prove you are the ideal candidate for their job. It will teach you how to find side doors that lead directly to decision makers, while your competition is still waiting in the lobby. By the end of the book, you’ll even learn how to get hired for a job you’ve never been paid to do.

Throughout The 6 Reasons You'll Get the Job, you’ll meet many of the people that the authors have helped - from professionals, to skilled laborers, to first-time job seekers - and see how they got hired. Their goals and barriers may be similar to yours or very different, but the principles and insights that led to their success can get you hired, too. As the authors share the insider information they’ve gained over twenty years, notice how it renews your confidence so you can face your fears and execute a job search that turns the reasons you’re not getting hired into the six reasons you’ll get the job!


Once again, Debra and Elisabeth deliver! No One Is Unemployable became a Top Ten Career Book of the Year by giving job seekers who face tough barriers genuine hope and effective practicality. The 6 Reasons is great because it reveals to the rest of us how people really get jobs. Insightful, smart, and fun to read! I rate this book a ‘Buy Now’.
