Never Search Alone

Based on 25 years of experience working with thousands of leaders – from early- career product managers to CEOs – Never Search Alone gives readers a time-tested, multi-step process (with exercises, tools, and templates) to find the right job now.

The book has also morphed into a global community of thousands of job seekers and volunteers helping them.
