Special Guest: Paul Rega, author of How To Find A Job: When There Are No Jobs


Today's special guest is Paul Rega, author of "How To Find A Job: When There Are No Jobs." Paul, welcome to The Write Type ~ Multi-Author Musings. Today I'd like you to share just a bit about your book.

Paul: I want to take a moment to thank Cheryl, for inviting me to share some information regarding my career book on this great blog. It's quite an honor to be here.

Cheryl: You're very welcome. We're happy to have you here. So tell us, Paul, what motivated you to write your book, and how long did it take you to write it?

Paul: My book, "How To Find A Job: When There Are No Jobs," is as many are discovering, much more than a job search book. The book took me nearly 14 years to write. I simply wanted to share the knowledge that I had gained as an executive recruiter with the public. It depicts a journey through life that we are all on, or soon shall be.

The book was the result of merging my knowledge of the employment field over the past 27 years, with the circumstances occurring in my own life. A recurring theme throughout the book is that, "As your life changes, so often does your career." I think it is because of this unique combination that the book is resonating with many people currently suffering in this economy.

The book was published in December 2011, and was an instant success, hitting #1 on Amazon's bestseller list for job hunting books in March 2012.

Cheryl: We wish you every success with your book. I am sure it will help many people.

Paul's Bio:

Paul Rega began his writing career while attending Western Illinois University as a staff reporter for the Western Courier. Upon graduating from WIU with a degree in biology and journalism, he spent the next thirty years in business having started his own executive search firm in 1984.

His passion for writing stayed with him throughout his business life and he started writing his first book in 1994. He published, "How To Find A Job: When There Are No Jobs" in December 2011. The book was an instant success and hit #1 on Amazon's bestseller list for job hunting books in March 2012.

Paul currently lives in a small town along the Gulf Coast of Florida where he is working on his next book.

Thank you Jane --- it is true and I think it's why my readers seem to really relate with that comment as this is not your typical "How To" book. Love your book Bertha! Well done!

Hi Paul, love your book. You clearly have extensive experience in recruiting and running your own businesses. I can't think of anyone more qualified to write this - apart from Richard Branson perhaps!!

I'd never thought of it that way before, but I think what you said "As your life changes, so often does your career." is very true, Paul. I'm retired, so haven't read your book, but it's received so many good reviews I was curious to hear about it from you. Great interview!
