Complementary Reading

I am frequently asked about additional material that will will complement the principles of The 20-Minute Networking Meeting in job search and career development. Here are a few. Check back here for future recommendations!

Winning the Executive Interview

Written by my The 20-Minute Networking Meeting co-author Dr. Marcia Ballinger. There are many interview books about interviewing, but books like Winning the Executive Interview are rare. Setting itself apart by its perspective, Dr. Ballinger, founder of executive search firm Ballinger|Leafblad, is one of the few, if not the only executive recruiter who makes a practice of sitting in the room during executive interviews. You won't just learn how to approach an interview, but you'll learn it first hand, through the eyes of an executive recruiter! Click the banner for more information.

From "When the stakes are high and you really want the job, advice from an expert is essential. In this straightforward and practical guide, executive search expert and author of the acclaimed book The 20-Minute Networking Meeting, Marcia Ballinger, spells out exactly what it takes to win your executive interview and get the job offer. In this book, Marcia reveals: *What really goes on during an interview, from the other side of the desk.*

MANGO Connects

During seminars, I am frequently asked how to write a brief, but cold networking invitation. If you do not have the Graduate Edition of The 20-Minute Networking Meeting, take a look at MANGO Connects. It is a FREE networking tool that helps job-seekers write customized networking emails, which helps take out much of the guesswork for writing effective, and more natural requests without the guesswork. Are you a student? MANGO Connects is used by job seekers from over 200 universities nationwide. Click the banner for more information.

Power Your Career: The Art of Tactful Self-Promotion at Work

As an executive career coach, I work with those who are not in just in job-search transition, but looking to transition into more responsibility, growth, opportunity, and over all promotion in their organizations. Power Your Career: The Art of Tactful Self-Promotion at Work is a sharp look into self-promotion without being a "self-promoter." Co-authors Richard Dodson and Nancy Burke happen to be friends and colleagues of mine and Marcia's, and by sheer coincidence share the fortune of being multi-award winners of some of the same major national and international career book awards for their title.
