PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Although business reports indicate that hiring has picked up, getting a good job can still seem elusive. A new book from a Delaware County career consultant aims to empower you to win that battle.

Ford Myers, President of Career Potential LLC, says we’re still in a job-market funk left over from the Great Recession, off-shoring and employers gun-shy about the future. That makes it incumbent on you, the job-seeker, to focus, which is where Get the Job You Want, Even When No One’s Hiring begins.

“So the first quarter of the book is essentially getting your head screwed on straight, getting your mind and your attitude right so that you can go out and have more success.”

Only then does Myers turn to particulars like resumes, interview skills, web profiles, which he says is not like some secret code.

“All the skills that are necessary to land a job and to manage your career successfully are very practical, very basic fundamentals.”

The book comes with a robust online component too.
