The problem with a book, even a great book,
is that it’s not HANDS-ON experience…and
it takes forever to get through it!
From: Darci O.
To: Darrell W. Gurney
Subject: Great research interview today!
Today I interviewed a senior financial advisor (and CFO) for [confidential], where a good friend of mine works – and it was a great interview – he told me alot of interesting things regarding my questions, and SURE ENOUGH, he automatically asked me if I wanted to talk to their CEO and COO, as they have interesting perspectives as well.
So that will be set up shortly and I’m still over the moon about all this.
He also asked me if I was looking for a job, so I casually alluded to being available (not desperate though!). Then he remembered that a gal who was VP of Production at [confidential] just departed the company after 15 years. He didn’t know anyone directly, but gave me the name of the manager over there – so we’re probably talking about an unadvertised job at this point.
He also had a good look at my resume and said it looked great.
We really jived – but my friend knew we would because she’s known him a long while and he’s an inspired, networky type.
Anyway, I’m amazed!
When I leave these backdoor interviews I feel sooo good – there’s something highly worthwhile at play here (something dynamic).
Also, I feel when I interview with HR tomorrow at [confidential] where that other amazing backdoor connection happened last week, that I’m not nervous in the least – because I feel like i’m out there interviewing all over already…and I feel completely prepared! Thanks for this – it is the gift of self-esteem and self-worth in job search! 😀
All the best,

Bonus #1) My new ebook, “Finding the S Spot: Career Pleasure Secrets for Merging Skills, Play & Pay” (Value: $20)…so you can get REALLY clear about the direction you want to take your career, which will make your experience in this 4-session course even more effective and fulfilling.
“Every so often along comes a book that feels more like a conversation with an old friend. It seems to know you, it asks all the right questions and at the end it holds up a mirror showing an insightful reflection. Finding the S Spot is that book! The questions keep coming, the sequence makes a lot of sense, the advice is priceless and the result is unexpected. It is well worth the read and the time invested. I enjoyed and I am sure you will as well.”—Alex Marinescu, MBA, Sales Manager/General Manager
“All of us are searching for our career sweet spot, but rarely know how to do it. Darrell gives you the tools and road map to find the optimal career and to do it on your own terms. For anyone wanting to better their life and follow their calling, this is required reading–whether you’re just entering the working world or retiring and beginning a second career.”—Joe Platnick, Partner, Venture Capital Firm
“Finding the S Spot playfully suggests insightful and clever ways of determining your next career move. As someone recently leaving undergrad, I would not have thought rigorously about my physical environment, for example, nor would I have united multiple job descriptins to create a new one of my own. Finding the S Spot is a useful tool on the path toward satisfying employment.”—Camille Bridges, New Grad and Management Consultant
“I really think it’s brilliant how Darrell packed so much empowerment in such a few pages! I can’t think of anyone who would ready this book and not have it make a profound difference in how they look at their choices in life, especially pertaining to careers, and how they could not walk away feeling uplifted, re-energized, and inspired! BRAVO!! This will benefit so many people in so many ways, I will be shocked if this isn’t a bestseller.”—Rafe Leyva, Founder, InnerVision Marketing and Mastermind
Bonus #2) My first award-winning book, “Headhunters Revealed! Career Secrets for Choosing and Using Professional Recruiters” (Value: $15)…because I want you to know how to make the best use of recruiters in these times where the right recruiter can be a Godsend (even though I’m going to teach you to be your own headhunter anyway!)
Winner of the Clarion Award for Best Book
from the Association for Women in Communications
“Darrell W. Gurney’s friendly and concise Headhunters Revealed! Career Secrets™ for Choosing and Using Professional Recruiters is a welcome resource. With helpful checklists and bulleted summaries, Gurney explains in upbeat, chummy prose all there is to know about the recruitment process.”—Publishers Weekly
“Headhunters Revealed unlocks the secrets of finding a professional recruiter. Save yourself all the hassle of getting stuck with the wrong representation. Even if you aren’t in the midst of making a career change, it’s never too early to read this book.”—Mark Victor Hansen, Co-creator, #1 New York Times Best-selling Chicken Soup for the Soul series, including Chicken Soup for the Soul at Work
“Executive Recruiters hold the key to the hidden job market. This straight-forward book shows you how to make this resource work for you.”—Wayne Cooper, CEO, Kennedy Information, publisher of The Directory of Executive Recruiters
“Headhunters Revealed is an excellent and much needed guide to tracking down and working successfully with recruiters when you are looking for new opportunities. Everyone tells you to connect with these professionals, but only Darrell tells you how.”—Margaret Riley Dikel, author of The Riley Guide and co-author, The Guide to Internet Job Searching
“Darrell’s expansive knowledge of the job search arena enables him to reach both the novice and experienced job seeker. The examples and illustrations are ‘on target’ with accepted career strategies. This book is a must read for unhappily employed and unemployed professionals at all levels.”—Howard Pardue, Fortune 500 HR Director and former Vice President/Managing Director of Right Management Consultants
Bonus #3) The book upon which this course is based, “Never Apply for a Job Again: Break the Rules, Cut the Line, Beat the Rest”(Value $15)…because I want you to have read it through and be ready to hit the ground running to put it into action when the course begins.
“Never Apply for a Job Again elaborates on a secret I’ve preached for years: in a job search, the best way to get to work is to network. Darrell Gurney will help you open the back door to your next career move.”—Harvey Mackay, author of the #1 New York Times Bestseller Swim With The Sharks Without Being Eaten Alive
“Whether it’s building wealth through a job or your own business, Darrell Gurney shares how to connect with people through whom that abundance will flow.”—T. Harv Eker, Author of the #1 New York Times Bestseller Secrets of the Millionaire Mind
“Never Apply for a Job applies the basic truth of my own philosophy to your job search: relationships are the key. Whether it’s a job, a career change, or even an entrepreneurial venture, it’s the people who make anything possible for you. Anything!”—Keith Ferrazzi, co-author of the Bestselling Never Eat Alone
“Where there’s a way there’s a will. Most people don’t lack the will to network, they lack the way. Once people find a way that makes sense, feels right and is doable even by those who are a tad network challenged, they’ll jump on it in a heartbeat. That is exactly what you should do with Never Apply for a Job Again: Break the Rules, Cut the Line, Beat the Rest. Don’t leave home without it.”—Mark Goulston, author of the International Bestselling “Just Listen” Discover the Secret to Getting Through to Absolutely Anyone
“Never Apply for a Job Again applies tribal dynamics to communicate and get known. Future corporate leaders must have the ability to put ‘career tribes’ in place and start building teams even before they’re hired. This book shows you how.”—Dave Logan, New York Times #1 bestselling coauthor of Tribal Leadership and The Three Laws of Performance
Bonus #4) A full 90-minute, personal Career Review Strategy Session with me (Value: $297)…to get in-depth, personal and real about your particular situation, where you’ve been, and were you want to go. This session alone has altered people’s careers for life.
“My initial 1 1/2 hours with Darrell was the best return on investment I’ve had in quite some time. After speaking with me for a short period and asking an occasional clarifying question, Darrell was able to shed light on why certain things resonate/work for me in my work life and why certain aspects leave me with a vague sense of discontent. I was able to see clearly what my primary drivers are and extrapolate to what might work/not work for me in the future…and, more importantly, what I find most satisfying. I would describe the process as bringing things I was already somewhat aware of into sharp focus.”—Luanda G., Harvard MD and Clinic Director
“I just went through the Career Review Strategy Session with Darrell and I am very impressed. He is very professional and has an extraordinary analysis and synthesis capacity. In only 90 minutes he came up with an extremely accurate description. Most of the things he brought up I honestly would not have been capable of realizing myself. His approach gave me a fresh perspective of my professional career and the opportunity to redirect my job search into a campaign which highlights my natural talents that ultimately will differentiate me from the rest and will land a job that inspires and fulfills my vision.”—Eugenio L., CFO and International Finance Manager
“I have to admit, I was a little skeptical about how someone can gather information about you in 70 minutes and then provide you with a written summary in 20 minutes. Darrell quickly cleared my skepticism after I began to read his summary from my Career Review Strategy Session. His analysis/assessment was mind blowing for me because he was able to ‘very eloquently’ articulate my strengths, which confirmed what I had been sharing with others about myself. After the session, I felt empowered, confident, and yet a little scared, which caused me to think about this quote ‘Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our Light, not our Darkness, that most frightens us’ (Marianne Williamson). However, the light revealed by Darrell and the next steps he provided will be my motivators and driving forces to fulfill my passions and vocation. What an AWESOME experience.”—Monica M., HR Professional
“I got a lot of personal value from my session with Darrell. He reminded me of what is closest to my heart, my passion to bring value to all I interact with. In addition he discovered for me new areas to explore and manifest in my work. His uncanny capabilities to quickly get to the essence, the core of what is important and to frame it in a way that makes sense and inspire are fantastic. I am very happy to have had this experience. I am looking forward to expand professionally and personally in new, very valuable ways.”—Stella E., PhD, Global Talent & Leadership VP
“It wasn’t the type of interview I immediately thought it was. We covered so much in so little time. During the break I began rethinking all of my responses. I thought I could have elaborated more and that the responses were repetitive and a bit shallow. I also thought to myself that Darrell probably has a canned write up he uses in order to get done so fast. Within twenty or so minutes Darrell sent a write up summary of our review session. As I glanced through, I couldn’t believe how personalized it was. It was clearly not a canned response. His way of extrapolating information and finding the unique themes is amazing. The summary highlighted many key points that I could have never relayed about my career personality and accomplishments. It set the stage to energize me in branding myself in a unique powerful way with defined next steps to help me begin the process.”—Danette S., Director, Government Relations & Program Management
Bonus #5) The Bestselling Online Course which was created out of this live course, Dream Job Lifeline (Value: $200)…with over 1100 students and all 5-star reviews since it’s launch this time last year. So that you can get the most out of our 4 live sessions together, dig into this comprehensive program, with 48 lectures, downloadable documents, and even a private LinkedIn group and weekly teleconference for participants.
“Fabulous content! Every lecture was to the point and Darrel’s delivery was impeccable. He knows what he is talking about from direct experience. I have began to put into practice some of his recommendations and they do indeed work. I highly recommend this course to others.”Stella E., PhD
“I’ve just completed Darrell Gurney’s course DREAM JOB LIFELINE: Get Known, Get Offers, Get Working and am pumped to put all this information to use. This course, like Gurney’s book “Never Apply For A Job Again!”, are fact filled, inspiring and provide the tools to not only view your career search (and career) in a new light, but also to take the actions to enhance your career into a purpose. As I listened to Gurney my juices started flowing. Not only is Gurney a magnificent mentor, but he puts you in touch with others through social networking that are making the same life changes right now. Don’t miss out on this wonderful knowledge. I believe that Gurney is the “critical link” between you and your best career.”—Dean R., Corporate Manager, Fortune 500 Company
“The course equipped me with a game plan and the confidence to meet the people I wanted to get to know in the industry I want to get in. Darrell’s step by step process is clear and impactful. He explains in a way that you can understand and motivates you to go out and try it.”—Helen T., Student
“I am just a bit blown away by how comprehensive and thorough this course is. I am one who loves getting a blueprint and solid examples of what to do, and more importantly how to do it. I think my biggest ‘nice surprise’ was the fact that Darrell even gives you scripts so you have a good guideline on exactly what to say in several situations. That, for me is always huge. I’ve already started implementing some of the techniques and it’s obvious they are working because people are paying attention”—Pam B., Online Business & Marketing Manager
Bonus #6) The Early-Bird “New Year Dream Career” Discount of $100 (Value: $100)…because I want you to have no excuses for not investing in yourself given the enormous value this course (and all the bonuses) provides.

(Note: The “personal branding” Lee talks about isn’t covered in these 4 sessions,

Here’s what some other course participants have said:
“What makes Darrell’s approach so great, is that it creates an opportunity for the job seeker to engage the executives in conversation on topics that are important to them. This results in executive taking the interest in, and liking, the job seeker, leading in turn in the job seeker being ‘top of mind’ for opportunities that would otherwise not be available.”–Alexandra K., MBA, SPHR, Human Resources Manager
“I recently attended Darrell’s webinar and loved it. I was in a tough working transition feeling like I had hit a wall in my industry. In the course Darrell brought out some ideas that helped me think outside of the box..and I found Darrell to be very personable coaching you toward your life goals. It was an awakening for me, giving me a fresh start. Upon taking the workshop I took some steps that I once felt was too risky..and now (3) different doors and opportunity have opened up to me. I am so delighted and highly recommend Darrell’s webinar and book “Never Apply for a Job Again”. BIG thanks Darrell!”–Gloria D., PR/Events Manager
“Stealth Campaigns….. Backdoor Meetings! Before your webinar I thought these terms were only used to describe espionage! Now I understand better that reconnaissance is indeed the KEY FACTOR in sales and finding work. I like the insight I got from realizing how I can easily gain access to high level executives by appealing to their egos and researching topics that will interest them. Armed with your insights, I can exponentially increase the visibility I have in my chosen field while creating win-win meetings as part of the process. This is a process-oriented endeavor, not a results-oriented approach. Clearly one leads to the other, but requires research as well as patience. Your approach reminds me of the Road Less Traveled! Bravo!”–John D., Hollywood Producer/Director
Here’s to a huge New Year filled with career dreams for you!
P.S. Did you know that good people are always needed. Through the enormous wealth of contacts you can make through the backdoor rather than the front door (like everyone else), you will create huge opportunities to get known, liked and hired in the New Year! Plan NOW to get your campaign together through this program and you’ll be 10 steps ahead of your competition as you move into this busy season of hiring. Some corporate fiscal years end in December. New Fiscal Year = New Corporate Budgets = New Hiring Plans!
P.P.S. Remember the email from Darci above, about the way her stealth campaign was going? I received an update from her the very next day:
To: Darrell Gurney
Guess what I came home to today? This email from my friend, who backdoored me into the meeting yesterday with the CFO.
Subject: research interviews
I wanted to follow up with you regarding additional referrals for your research project. Colby has reached out to both Gary, President and Bob, COO here at [confidential] and each has agreed to meet with you for 20 minutes to discuss your questions. I am copying Beverly (Bob’s assistant) and Debbie (Gary’s assistant) as they can help coordinate separate meeting times. I believe that both are busy up through Thanksgiving so it would have to be after the holiday. No need to keep either Colby or myself on copy re the scheduling emails.
Thanks, and please let me know when you will be in our offices so I can make sure I’m around and available for a visit and/or lunch.
