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.
