Review. Over the Gap by Dave Patterson is like having your own personal career coach. This is probably due to the fact that author Patterson is also a Certified Business, Executive, and Career Coach.
The chapters are a step by step guide on how to land your dream job:
CEO of Me, Inc.;
Finding the Right Fit;
Crafting a Message that Sells Your Brand; Promoting Your Brand;
Doing Your Homework; Defining Your Target Market;
Networking for Results;
Creating a Position for Yourself;
The Benefits of Personal Coaching.
In today's tight job market both experienced workers and new entrants need not only the right credentials, but the right marketing strategy. Over the Gap fills that gap!
