How Did You Get That Job?

Hi, I’m Susan Dansby. I just heard that the average job search takes 19-22 weeks. And that blew my mind. That’s because, using the system in this book, I got the job of my dreams within 16 weeks AND I only averaged about an hour a day looking for that job.

Susan DansbyThe book’s called How Did You Get That Job? My Dream Jobs and How They Came True. And I wrote it because people were always asking me how I got great jobs. I’ve been a TV Director, an Associate Producer, and a television writer – I wrote for As the World Turns for 13 years, and won four Emmys®.

And most of that time, I worked from my own home in Atlanta. Is that a dream job or what?

But this is about you. And your job search. And why it’s taking so blasted long. I’ll bet you’re going on interviews for jobs you’re not even slightly excited about. I’ve been there, my friend. I have SO been there.

Here’s the thing. The best way to get a great job (or even an okay job) these days, is to be the first one in line. You’ve got to be on the short list for that job before the masses even know it exists. And that’s what you’ll learn how to do when you read How Did You Get That Job:

  • How to find your ideal job;
  • How to meet the people who can get you in the door;
  • How to take the stress out of your job interviews;
  • How to make your resume work for you; and a lot more.

And, by the way, the two times I used this system, I got offered a job before I even asked for one! What’s better than that?  You’ve got to buy this book.

Not Some Dry Job Manual

You think How Do You Get That Job will be dull, right? And long? And boring?  Nope. This is a short, fun read.

This book is a combination autobiography/job search manual – the story of my life told through short stories about the many jobs I’ve had. Some of it’s sad (being betrayed by my alcoholic father); some it’s funny (my one day as a product demonstrator).

It’s also a road map of what to do – and what not to do – to get hired; and once you’ve got the job, how to keep it, and keep growing toward higher salaries and better job titles.

It’s a success story. And, believe me, if I could rise to success in the extremely competitive entertainment industry, saddled with insecurities and a chip on my shoulder the size of Texas – you can succeed as well. And you can get where you want to go a lot faster, laughing at – I mean, learning from – my experiences.
