Find A Job Fast by William Wintergreen provides a wealth of information for job seekers. The author discusses everything from attractive cover letters to resume writing and internet locations where jobs are listed.

Wintergreen explains how to compose a good cover letter in order to gain access to hiring managers and a first interview. There are even good samples of cover letters. An important detail: the email address should be professional.

Resumes should refer to specific skills, as well as examples of success in a previous position. Potential calls from prospective employers should go to voicemail so that callers aren’t introduced to uncontrollable background noise.

Wintergreen advises job seekers to research the company so that they can make a pitch from a practical perspective. Candidates should wear a suit and appear confident while displaying plenty of eye contact. A followup thank you letter or email is always in order. In addition, always provide information that is accurate.

The author gives plenty of advice on how to address money issues,  although he does not discuss the formal salary minimum and maximums attached to specific job titles. This is important to know because candidates should not price themselves out of the opportunity or enter a new job at a salary which provides little growth potential for the future.

Find A Job Fast by William Wintergreen is an important resource for job seekers and people who network in contemplation of changing jobs or just maintaining industry contacts for friends or family. The book has plenty of ideas on searching internet sites for jobs, networking and researching an industry to pick up tips on areas of industrial growth.

A strength of the presentation is that the author covers specific language content in the cover letters and resumes, as well as the thank you letter or email that accompanies a major interview.
