5.0 out of 5 stars Great read Jan. 25 2011
One of the best reads I've had in a while. Jim Beqaj offers unique insights on how simple introspection can help you identify and nurture your strengths in order to help you find a career you not only love, but can excel in. As the title suggests, an important element of landing that perfect job is knowing who you want to work for, and seeking out an environment conducive to your skill set, values and ambition. Well-written with no dense corporate lingo, it appeals to young professionals as well as those contemplating a career change. I'm in my mid 20's, but I honestly wish I read this book years ago after graduating college. Anyway that's just my two cents. Head over to State of Affairs for the REAL review... (And a thumbs up from Tom Cruise.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Hard won wisdom, generously shared! April 1 2011
The subtitle of How To Hire The Perfect Employer by Jim Beqaj is "Finding the Job and Career That Fit You Through a Powerful Personal Infomercial". Beqaj says his overall message for everyone reading the book is: "You can find your fit and love what you do."

In his book Beqaj says: "I want to help you determine:

* What you enjoy doing most (this will reveal what you're good at)
* Who you work best with, and why (this will reveal your wiring, or personality type)
* Your preferred method of resolving conflicts
* Your Target Rich EnvironmentTM (TRE)TM - the types of employers who fit you and your goals - companies where you should therefore concentrate your search

Armed with this information, you can then script and present a powerful Personal InfomercialTM".

Beqaj says: "You're going to pitch your infomercial to employers who need what you have to offer. More than that, you will learn how to use your infomercial to find out whether companies that need you also want you - you with your personality, your preferred style of working, and your goals. You will tell them in a few choice sentences what you're good at, who you work best with, and how you can add value."

He says: "You may feel a bit squeamish about the word `infomercial', but like it or not, you have one now. We all do. If you ask people how they see you, their response will reflect your current infomercial."

He continues: "The point of having a powerful Personal Infomercial is simply this: Either you design how the world sees you or you let the world see you how it wishes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great advice if you're unhappy in your job March 30 2011
This book really helped me understand what I am good at and how to communicate those skills to a potential employer. I also realized that I had been looking for work in all the wrong places -- and hung up on feeling rejected if I didn't get the job. Now I feel in command of my job search and I spend a lot more time researching companies, finding out how they tick, and narrowing my search to places where I will really FIT.
This book offers a real "how to" change your tactics and focus on the best results -- and it's an easy read in a few hours, unlike "What color is my Parachute" which has grown into a wordy tome. Much better succinct advice in "How To Hire the Perfect Employer"
