There are many people who lost their jobs last year, and unfortunately, many of them are still looking for work. For those in this situation, after so long, the frustration and desperation likely only increases. You send out resume after resume every day, and no results. What can you do?

Author Jill Konrath is doing something pretty cool about it. She's made a free book to help people in this situation. It's not about networking, or job sites, or resume tweaking, it's about something entirely different, and as the job market is changing, it reflects a new approach to the situation. The book is called Get Back to Work Faster, and you can download it at her site.

Who's Jill Konrath? She's been an independent sales consultant for over 20 years, and has written the books Selling to Big Companies and more recently, Snap Selling. Konrath knows selling, and in the current job situation, that's exactly what you need to do for yourself. Don't wait for companies to present opportunities for you. Read Konrath's free book and learn how to position the value you have to offer and get involved before they realize they have a position that needs filling.
