Strategic Career Engagement shows you the veritable "mindfield" of challenges candidates may face in getting to the next round of the hiring process. Strategic Career Engagement redefines the job and career strategy paradigm for internal othe 21st century. (Available from and at all speaking engagements.)

Learn where hiring managers focus their attention in the 10 seconds (or less!) that they scan a résumé; learn the types of accomplishments hiring managers most want to see on a résumé; understand which type of résumé format you need, depending on your career objective, and much more. ($10.00)
