Cairo, NY, October 28, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Lucille Falcone was born, grew up, and spent most of her life in what one would call a rural area. She has seen the devastation wrought when major businesses move out of an area leaving behind nothing but a broom and no place to work. That has never stopped her, or many around her from finding jobs. Ever since Falcone entered the job market 20 years ago, she has always been able to find work. Now she's ready to share her secrets with millions of people who are in the same place she's been all her life – needing a job but not exactly fitting into what is available.
“When I was little, I remember people losing their jobs because the major factories in the area were steadily moving overseas. People made longer commutes because they had a house and family to support. White collar workers always fared worse in our area, so we all knew first hand what factories moving meant.” Falcone watched as family members found jobs hundreds of miles away, and also witnessed all the changes in the area where she lived. “There is no question that my life was forever changed by the dearth of jobs in the area, as was the area itself. Nevertheless, for those who are committed to staying behind, life goes on, and must go on with self sustainability.”
According to Falcone, there are some grains of truth in the job search information available, but the vast majority of it just doesn't work when competition is high and you are not technically qualified for a specific job. “You have to think creatively and be willing to fit yourself into a new place in society. Unfortunately, far too many people are defining themselves as fitting on unemployment lines, the streets, and on social services. There are jobs available, and if people start working them, more will become available. It's just the nature of the cycle.”
Falcone also goes on to say that human resource professionals are probably the worst ones to ask about how to get a job in modern times. “Remember, the vast majority of them writing books worked in large companies, or in areas not challenged by economic downturns. They are used to seeing conventional applicants, and really don't give much thought to the exceptions that got their attention. You have to ask them a lot of questions to get a straight answer about techniques that will truly work in these times. In fact, if you probe deep enough, they will admit my tactics work.”
So what? What can Falcone do for you that you can't do for yourself? Quite simply, Falcone says she can help you find a job even in the worst job markets in the country. Aside from writing Overcoming the Overqualified Myth, which is available for the Kindle (and other readers) via Amazon.com, she has also opened up a job advice forum. All you will need to do is register for the forum to receive personalized attention on everything from reading classified ads to follow up after the interview.
“If you are ready to find a job, I'm ready to help you achieve that goal,” says Falcone. “So what are you waiting for?”
