About the Author:
George's first book, Hired: Cut Your Career Search Time in Half, is based on his own experience-when he found himself facing two job transitions in less than three years. From both his military training and operations background, he learned that career transition also has a process. He became a student, listening, taking copious notes, and asking vital questions to many people that he met.
George started his career in the US Army serving in the 101st Airborne Division in Fort Campbell, Kentucky, additionally in Wurzburg, Germany, and Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, and Iraq in Support of Desert Shield/Desert Storm. He credits this experience with his leadership training, positive attitude through adversity, and his ability to overcome major obstacles. In addition, George has 25 years in Global Operations managing working in four industries: Automotive, Contract Electronic Manufacturing, Industrial Automation, and Capital Equipment Manufacturing. He is passionate about helping individuals and businesses become better.
George has had three international assignments in Germany, Thailand, and China, and these have increased his knowledge of global and diversified cultures.
He credits his strong belief in God and the support of his family for his success. His wife of 26 years, Kerry, is very loving and supportive, as are their three beautiful and successful children: Mason, Devin, and Aislynn. He loves spending his free time with his family boating, traveling, and golfing, plus he's an avid runner.
George also does individual coaching, consults with businesses and business leaders, as well as speaks on topics such as developing next generational leaders in an organization, strong teams, driving improvements within companies.

The author spent appropriate time toward the beginning of the book to discuss how a job-seeker can obtain their most effective mindset. This is crucial to advance job search strategies and to be our best motivated self toward landing the right role.
The tag-team strategy for networking is brilliant and elegant, as well as the advice to outline the role and 90-day plan during final interviews!
This book gets to the point for maximum impact.
The plan covers People, Processes and Challenges -
Outline your industry knowledge, as well as any pain points they mentioned, obstacles they are facing, talk about steps you would take to get up to speed on critical topics. This should be based on what you learned in your research as well as in prior interview(s).Outline the job, the challenges and your approach to hit the ground running. Talk about building bridges and alliances with key detractors, supporters and allies. You won’t be sitting in your office heads down on the computer, you’ll be actively engaged to understand what is really going on.
Assess the current state. Accelerate, ramp up and learn. Align and build trust to develop the strategy.
Talk about who you believe would be your top three constituents: Depending on the job, examples could be customers (or parents); team members (or teachers); cross functional contacts (engineers or the math/phys ed teacher).
Write it out - have someone look at it for spelling/grammar. Practice talking about it with a friend or colleague. Be confident, you are capable, you will win!
