Just as I was motivated to a start my blog www.oracleofny.com to keep in touch with the hundreds of people from around the world who contacted me by email and telephone with words of encouragement and job leads after my sign board publicity initially went viral, I was motivated to write a book after I eventually landed a job and hundreds more people contacted me proclaiming I was an inspiration and seeking job hunting advice.
During the cold, lonely winter nights and on weekends, while my wife and children were in Omaha and I was working at an accounting firm in NYC, I started writing Experienced MIT Grad For Hire based on my personal experience and career coach Paloma Bowland’s transformational advice.
I wanted to share my inspirational story and give encouragement to the many people who gave me encouragement when I needed it most — during my long stretch of unemployment. I wanted to reach out to people all over the world with words of help and hope.
Even a year and a half after my photograph and story first went public, they continued to circulate the globe — and even a year after I started working again, many people asked for the details of my inspirational act, unique job search, what I learned and where it had taken me.
I realized that I enjoy — and am good at — helping others, so I decided to share the tools I learned from my experience — to inspire people to think and act in new ways to land a job.
Anyone who is looking for a job or who could use a bit of personal inspiration may be interested in my informative tale of creativity, bravery, perseverance and practical job hunting advice.
