BOSTON, MA—May 5, 2015—Unemployment is down, and entry-level job openings are up for high school and college graduates—but competition for all jobs will remain high, and a fast start is critical to launching a successful career. These young professionals need proven strategies for getting their foot on the ladder of success now.

Martin Yate, the New York Times bestselling author of Knock ‘em Dead 2015: The Ultimate Job Search Guide (Adams Media, 2015), the 31st annual edition of this job search phenomenon, shares his cutting-edge approaches to job search and career management. He gives fresh grads, and professionals at all levels, a firm grasp of practical job search tactics that are critical for an effective job search, and seamlessly weaves in strategies for long-term career success.

With an approach continually refined over three decades, Yate has the rare ability to translate long-term strategy into practical action for today’s problems. Plus, he’s down to earth, friendly, and witty.

This new edition is revised to address the latest tricks for resumes, networking, job search, and the magic of turning job interviews into job offers.

In Knock ‘em Dead 2015 Martin Yate shows new graduates, and professionals at all levels, how:

  • Alumni associations can play a pivotal role in a successful professional life
  • Internships have become the new “first jobs”
  • Successful, fulfilled lives are built on common sense and practicality, not “following your bliss”
  • Resumes must be built to perform in today’s marketplace
  • To maximize social networks to quadruple interviews
  • To turn those job interviews into job offers
  • To negotiate the best salary

As the Lord of late night radio Jordan Rich says, “His knowledge is beyond impressive and his enthusiasm and energy are infectious. There is no more cutting-edge guy on career building; he’s as sharp as they come and there is no one better on the subject.”
