Having to look for a job sucks. It's painful, time consuming, you may be able to sell services or products, but having to sell yourself is humbling, and sometimes frustrating - because you don't know how wonderful you are! I've heard every excuse from 'well, you know, I'm 'old', so they won't hire me...' to '...I keep getting calls from recruiters and interviews, but then I never hear from them again...' You are selling a solution to a problem the company needs to fix. You might be getting in the door to the first interview, but if you are focused on asking them what they can do for you, and not really getting to the problem of what they need fixing, then you will not get that job. What I have found in 22 years of human resources, recruiting, and business ownership - many companies don't know what they are looking for, and the candidates don't know what to ask for. This compendium of my blogs and newspaper 'ask-the-expert' columns will help the job seeker learn more about the job market and how to really search for and get that 'dream job.'

Inspired by his daughter, Ellison, 77 Tips For A Grown-Up Man is Kurt Starnes' first published literary effort. Realizing that Ellison was becoming more aware of his behavior as she grew up, Kurt was compelled to make an earnest effort to grow up himself and teach by example. While the growing up process continues, this book represents some areas in which he believes he's made the most progress. Kurt thinks there is still much more room for improvement and hopefully more tips for Volumes 2, 3 and beyond. Touching on health, fitness, addiction, appearance, education, thought, parenting, manners, memories and the future, this book holds half a lifetime's worth of knowledge reduced to 77 concise tips from this Grown-Up Man in progress.
