Discussion on the book “The Unwritten Rules of the Highly Effective Job Search” by Orville Pierson

Open Book and Discussion Group based on the book:

The Unwritten Rules of the Highly Effective Job Search

The book was authored by Orville Pierson

Tuesday Evening 11.30.10 at 7


Greetings All,

Are there written rules to the job search? Are there things that we are missing or don’t want to confront? This week we take a walk through “The Unwritten Rules of the Highly Effective Job Search” and see what Mr. Orville Pierson has to say about this. Pierson is Harvard educated and has spent years as a senior V.P. with Lee Hecht Harrison and boasts of having helped over 600,000 job seekers in his career.


Discussion points on the “Unwritten:”

  • Small networks trump big ones
  • Defining and redefining the “imperatives”
  • Confronting obstacles
  • Your “core message”  is ineffective unless it is getting to key persons
  • Your “project plan determines your reaching (or not) those key persons
  • Personal polish and presentation counts for everything in communications about what you do
  • Working backwards from the “decision makers”
  • Team approach to applied to your search
  • Target lists
  • (Wait, hasn’t this been written about?)


Please do bring your business cards so that you can network with others as we make our way to Steak & Shake for a cup of coffee or a bite to eat after the groups.


Join us,



Are there "unwritten rules?"
