Why Qualified People Don't Get Hired Or Stay With The Company is an informative book that can be utilized by both individuals and company management. Author Molita Powell walks the reader through three sections that focus on The External Role, The Leadership Role and The Individual Role. The External Role deals with the following factors: the state of the economy, the job market, and the role that companies play in hiring people. The Leadership Role deals with the factors that relate to the company management: leadership styles; management styles and accountability; employee empowerment vs. employee engagement; employee motivation; and leadership do's and don'ts. The third section, The Individual Role deals with the what an individual can do to get hired. This section features: education; available resources; individual responsibility; options, change and owning your career desire; and how to get yourself hired.

The book emphasizes that companies are looking to hire individuals who are highly skilled, qualified, and financially responsible. These three premises could lead the company to train and promote the individual into a leadership position within its managerial level. In a sense, if the individual wants to obtain gainful employment with a chance of advancement, then they need to have their bases covered, and be able to demonstrate that they are responsible in their personal life which will carry over into the employment world.

I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a job, those who are looking to make a change, and for college students who will be looking for gainful employment after graduation.

Disclaimer: I received a copy of the book from the author in exchange for my honest review and participation in a virtual book tour event hosted by Pump Up Your Book! Virtual Book Publicity Tours.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 147823511X, Paperback)

This book identifies and explores some of the challenges that qualified workers face today trying to get hired, and on-the-job challenges looking to move into new positions. Some of these may be within the workers’ reach and for which they have a responsibility to address in order to achieve success. Then, there are the external influences such as the company, the job market and the economy. In the middle are the leaders and managers. Their actions and inactions directly affect the company’s bottom line when they do not hire the right people to do the right job, because their focus is neither on the employee nor the vision of the company.
