SECURE THE JOB YOU WANT & EXCEL
In writing this Guide, I first produced several rough drafts based on my own experience and thoughts. Then, I researched the subjects covered and prepared a more complete draft.
Next, I asked a number of individuals with a special expertise or sound understanding of the different issues to give me a critique of the chapters or section they knew the most about. For example, I had three senior executive search practitioners prepare a critique of Part One: Securing the Right Job. In most cases, each subject of consequence was reviewed by three different knowledgeable persons. Armed with this extensive feedback, I prepared the final draft of the Guide.
Consequently, I want to thank the following members of my informal “editorial board” for their valuable contribution to the contents of this Guide: Mike Bursaw, JoAnn Compton, Agnes Dallison, Michael Honey, John Koopman, Dan McAreavey, Tom McCormick, David McDermid, Graham Price, Robert Shoniker, Phil Stiles, Chip Vallis and Nicole Woodward. Any mistakes, however, are of my own making.
I am also indebted to Charlene Dobmeier, Don Gorman, and Jacob Reichbart for their support in shepherding this project.
