Product Description

Product Description

Job hunting used to be so much simpler.

All you had to do was follow a simple set of rules:
1. Write a resume
2. Submit it to a company (online or in person)
3. Interview
4. Rinse and repeat with multiple companies
5. Cross your fingers and hope someone hires you

Admit it, you’ve gone through this process, haven't you?

This was a decent method for landing your dream job - years ago! The rules have changed. We’ve gone through an unprecedented time with the financial crisis. Jobless rates are sky high. The job market has become ultra-competitive.

Here’s the bottom line: Job hunters can no longer play by the same rules and expect to land their dream job. You’ve got to stand out from the crowd.

This book will help you push yourself towards your dream job by:

★ Sharing 50 tips on how to leverage social media (Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Prezi, SlideRocket) and networking techniques to land your dream job
★ 10 core philosophies to guide you in your job hunting journey
★ Learn the secrets to how I was able to get recruiters from Google, HP, Verizon, Apple and other top private companies reach out to me about job opportunities!
★ Best practices I've learned from hiring practices at Fortune 100 companies and numerous interviewing sessions and seminars at colleges

Don't be dragged down into the crowd of endless paper resumes - It’s time for you to push your resume, your social media skills and yourself to new heights.

Are you ready to push?

"Nelson's writing style keeps you engaged from the first page to the last." - Ted Blosser, Senior Account Executive, Box.com

"In Push, Nelson Wang's finest accomplishment is the transparency and sincerity in which he writes that can be identified within the first 10 pages." - Hansen Shieh, MBA Student at Columbia University

2.0 out of 5 stars Push to another social jobsearch title July 4 2012
By bookfan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
To begin with, this ebook contained 3 missing sections. I downloaded it to my Amazon Prime cloud library, and read it on my laptop. While it was adequately written in terms of grammar, style, tone and spelling, the subject matter and key topics were somewhat dated and non-specific.

It reads like a primer/prelude to sell his other title, which I did not download. In any event, the tips were too vague to be valuable. You can get better advice and more specific social jobseeking tips on the Web. Advice: skip this ebook altogether.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wish I read this book in college June 20 2011
By Paul - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Overworked. Underpaid. These two words sum up my career over the past 4 years. Like many other college graduates my age, I basically took the first job I was offered right after graduation. As a result I sort of fell into an industry that was not what I expecting, doing work I'm not entirely enthusiastic about. And I've always wondered if I could have done better...

"Push" is the book that I wish I had read 5 years earlier in college. From defining career goals to crafting a resume to expanding your network to nailing the interview. This book breaks down all of the essential steps of job hunting in a clear, step-by-step approach.

I particularly like the author's specific tips to building a business network to land an interview. That chapter made me realize that I haven't been doing nearly enough expand my own network to attract new opportunities.

I'm using these tips in my current job search, and I would recommend this book to any friends looking to upgrade their careers.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Information May 19 2012
By J. L. Marra - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The book had a lot of good information, some of which I've seen in other books, articles, and online. The book had some grammatical errors and it also did not format well to my Kindle Touch. I was able to get the book while it was free, so no big deal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Motivational and Inspiring June 12 2011
By T. Blosser - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Nelson's writing style keeps you engaged from the first page to the last. He puts into writing the thoughts you've had all along, but have been too busy to sit down and actually pay attention to. Simple things like "what's my brand" or "what do I want to achieve from a career"? Many of us have been on autopilot with our jobs - just going paycheck to paycheck or company to company - PUSH encourages you to actually stop and think about what should be the next logical career move and how to land a job in that move. In times like these, his book is a must-read for all people looking for a change in their careers.

4.0 out of 5 stars PUSH is more than just a job interview strategy book.. June 19 2011
By Tom Xia - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having read a few of these types of books myself by more acclaimed authors, I feel where this book may lack in fancy methaphors and questionable personal accounts, it more than makes up for it with it's straight forward style of what today's interview climate is really like, and what to do about it. This book will not guarantee anyone their dream job, but it forces you think about yourself and your abilities differently, and for $5.00, it really gives the $10 and up interview books a run for its money.

I'm a personal friend of the authors and like many other book reviews on Amazon, this was suppose to be a raving review about the book. But that's lame. The truth is, I enjoyed this book not only because I was forced to read it, but I saw a lot of my friend and his experience in this book, and this is what makes this book real. I've been there through some of the tougher decisions of his life, and to see how far he's come following the same advice he has included in this book, I know it works because he's living proof of its success.

Finally, this book, like many other books, will provide valuable tips for getting you your dream job for a fraction of the other books price, but at the end of the day, it's great book because the content of this book has benefited my friend who is very successful at his career, and he's now sharing his experience with everyone else. Enjoy!
