Though I can't yet attest to its effectiveness, it seems like very good advice for finding a job. The approach should be especially effective for recent graduates of an American post-graduate program, especially MBAs, since that is where his expertise lies, and less effective for other job hunters. Basically he advises: be systematic, don't get distracted, use reminders. His system is to identify the best candidate firms based on your interest, contacts you can identify there (from Alumni records or LinkedIn), and whether they are hiring. Find a booster within the company. Do an informational interview. Follow-up appropriately. Some interesting tips for using psychology to your advantage, such as: a person who has done a small favour for you in the past is more likely to do a larger favour for you in the future. ( )
