Al Smith, the HIRED guy, is author of the Amazon #1 Bestselling job search manual HIRED! Every Employment Method and co-author of HIRED! Paths to Employment in the Social Media Era, which was an Amazon #2 Bestseller and Amazon #1 Top Rated by readers in all three of its categories. Al’s books read as if he and the reader were having a conversation. “I hate most non-fiction tomes because I feel like I’m being lectured to. My goal is to engage the reader, so they feel a part of the message.”
Al has been an executive for seven companies in five industries with more than 35 years of management, sales, marketing, training and coaching experience. National trainer for three companies in two industries, Al has adapted techniques learned from the American Management Association, Kimberly-Clark, Xerox, Miller-Heiman, and Systema into career counselling. Those methods include all clients reaching LinkedIn page 1. For good reason Al has been dubbed as “the HIRED guy.”
Al’s creative books, webinars, workshops and presentations communicate complex material in readily understandable terms. Einstein said, “If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t know it well enough.” If correct, few know how to help candidates secure employment better than Al Smith.
