100 Conversations for Career Success


A book on how to land a job that gets down to the nitty-gritty and actually includes scripts to deal with a wide range of networking, interviewing and job search situations and scenarios.

From cold calls, emails and informational interviews, to interacting with VIPs on social media, creating a natural-sounding, branded intro spiel to new people, and so much more.

Thanks to Laura Labovich and Miriam Salpeter for giving us this much-needed powerhouse book, with the words to say and write when we ask people for help in reaching our career goals.

I was delighted to contribute to the book a few short, impactful pitches when networking in-person. Here’s one of them:

“I’m a start-up CEO and business development leader in high-tech. I convince Fortune 500 companies to risk multi-million dollar commitments on the new, untried products of emerging enterprises.”

The book chapters include:

  • How to Inform Your Network You’re Searching for a Job
  • How to Contact and Inform Potential References about Your Search
  • How to Solicit, Secure, and Succeed at an Informational Interview
  • How to Network at Events (and Make It Easy to Follow Up)
  • How to Reach VIPs
  • How to Be Generous in Your Job Search

. . . and comprehensive advice on communicating professionally via social media, including LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook and Google+.

Buy the book on Amazon.

Thanks for commenting, Cindy.

Agreed! Laura and Miriam have provided a much-needed how-to for anyone struggling with how to best present themselves to land the jobs they want.

This book should help a lot of people.

Ive had the opportunity to read this book and am amazed at the spot-on scripts and tips provided. Laura and Miriam hit this one out of the ballpark. It’s not just a book to read. It’s a job seekers dictionary and thesaurus all in one.
