Just Tell Me How to Get Hired! is an honest and often humorous conversation between the job seeker, employers, recently hired employees, and the reader’s new found recruiter, Jill. This quick read is filled with “cut to the chase” advice. Just as if you were sitting in Jill’s office, you’ll quickly learn how to get a job faster and easier than going it alone.

I have been teaching for 38 years and have never found a book that provides EVERYTHING a graduating student (undergrad or grad) needs to know to land that perfect job…never, until now. Jill Shook’s “Just Tell Me How to Get Hired!” is that book! My students have read the book and they always react the same way: “WOW!” The book shows them the reality of job hunting, the necessary preparation, selecting target companies, getting company information, what really matters in the interview and so much more.
