What People Are Saying:

“As a Recruiter with a career spanning over 30 years, my hat is off to Kurt Kirton. He has accomplished something truly remarkable. He has broken down the job search process into logical, easily understood steps with a wealth of tools that are genuinely useful. He has done what many other authors have tried and failed. He has taken the overwhelming task of job searching and broken it down to be so user friendly and so unintimidating that he does not overwhelm his reader. Rather, he gives the reader a sense of ‘I can do this. I can eat this elephant one bite at a time.’ I will recommend this book to, not only job seekers, but coaches, mentors and other recruiters. It is a real ‘find.'”  –Layne Cagle, Partner and Recruiter, Vaco Staffing

“In the 20 years I have known Kurt, I’ve seen him excel in several career settings and recover from job layoffs, all the while remaining buoyant and upbeat—methodical in his job searches—and become an expert on that process along the way. In Here Today, Hired Tomorrow, Kurt covers the principles and systems that have worked for him—and will work for you.”  –Bob Farrell, Writer / Music Artist; author of When the Rains Fall

“We’ve all been there. Everyone has had to search for a new job/career path at one time or another. The information Kurt has compiled and presented in “Here Today, Hired Tomorrow” is invaluable during this crucial time. Being a creative recruiter, I speak with many professionals searching, sometimes desperately, for their next “big thing”. Some of the information in the book I didn’t even know! He gives smart yet practical ideas and information, and even gives you a workbook and daily action items. Brilliant. If you follow his recipe presented in this book, you will find what you’re looking for.”  –Stephanie Harrison, Senior Creative Recruiter, Robert Half Technology

“My work as a Career Coach over the past 12+ years has allowed me to help thousands of job seekers. Each one is uniquely different, as are their job search experiences.

I can hardly wait until I have an opportunity to help my clients choose this tool to help them build their next great career!”  –Clay Faircloth, MA, Career Coach and Global Career Development Facilitator

“What I liked best about this book is the no nonsense approach to a new career. I too was laid off a few years ago and did a lot of soul searching when it came time to find a new career.

The ‘Action Plan’ is a great idea, and I’d recommend this book to anyone that is looking for a new position.”  –Carrie Ransom, graduate of Middle Tennessee State University
