Darrell Gurney, veteran recruiter and career strategist, can support you to have the confidence, strategy, and connections to take your career to exciting new levels or into completely new directions.
And his "DreamJobLife" special offer is available for a limited time!
I'm Darrell Gurney and, in a minute, I'm going to tell you a simple but profound secret that can shift the direction of your career in amazing ways...and give you a "DreamJobLife" special offer to help relaunch your career toward what matters most. But right now I want to ask you a few simple questions?
• Are you right now doing the kind of work you really want to do?
• If you're unemployed, are you meeting the right people in the right positions of influence to
• If you're an entrepreneur or in a business development role, are you getting exposed to thought
leaders, industry experts or potential clientele to create the deals, joint ventures and/or completely
new businesses that you form?
• Do you have all the time in the world to discover your passions and move your career forward?
If you answered "No" to any of the above, keep reading. If you answered "Yes", keep reading too...because if you're that successful you ALWAYS want to learn new techniques and methods to be even more successful!
Proven Tips, Tools and Tactics to Make Connections that Create
Opportunities for You
There was a point when I answered "No" to the above questions. But I learned something that changed all that.
I was new in town and knew nobody. But what I learned had me, within 2 months, meeting with the Chief Financial Officers of the Top 7 Entertainment Studios in Hollywood (in their private offices) and landing a corporate role with MGM/United Artists without Human Resources even knowing my name.
Since then, throughout my career as an executive recruiter and then career coach, I've taught this method to...
|•Sales Professionals||•Administrative Staff||•Chief Marketing Officers|
|•Attorneys||•Non-Profit Executives||•Directors of Security|
|•Harvard MDs||•Engineers||•Hollywood Production Executives|
|•Chief Information Officers||•Directors of Manufacturing||•Human Resource Managers|
...and even relatively new college grads...because it's UNIVERSAL in its impact and success!
And the best part is this: it's all spelled out in my new book, Never Apply for a Job Again: Break the Rules, Cut the Line, Beat the Rest, outlining 25 years of experience helping folks connect to opportunities...and you can get it for FREE if you act immediately.

The problem with a book, even a great book,
is that it's not HANDS-ON experience...and
it takes forever to get through it!
If you're like me, you start a great book and you get into it and then life happens, interruptions, distractions, and the momentum of what you're learning gets slowed down to a crawl. You WANT to keep it all together and use it right away, but you start to forget pieces and often the whole effort gets dropped...because it just drags on.
That's why I created this course: so in just 4 sessions over 3 weeks you can walk away with a fully developed career campaign that has you making connections in the world instantly...connections that can open the door to your dream job, gain a great new client, or create joint ventures and partnerships for your business.
I hear you saying "So, Darrell, what is a career campaign anyhow?"
It's exactly this (and here's the profound secret I mentioned I would tell you earlier):
It's you getting out to know and get known (and liked) by people with the influence and authority to offer jobs, business or partnerships without you ever bringing up your need for jobs, business or partnerships. That's why it's called a "STEALTH" interview campaign!
But it's not a trick or deceptive...it's just a simple mindset and easy-to-implement system and techniques that have you benefit from some basic elements of human psychology. Here's a few of them:
► People like to help people. Yep, underneath and behind all the busy-ness and stress of people's working life, if you know how to make it easy for them to help you, they will.
► People like to win...and don't want to lose. So approaching them for something they for sure CAN help you with will get you more meetings than for something they're unsure about.
► People have egos. And the wonderful thing about that is, when you know how to work this fact to your advantage, they'll open their door for you.
► People like to talk about themselves and what they're passionate about. Therefore, your ability to listen and be interestED rather than interestING will get you in their good graces.
► People are drawn to caring about others' welfare over time. This means you can nurture and develop long-lasting relationships from scratch if you can meet people in a systematic way and stay top of mind.
But you WON'T meet people if you're out pounding on the world for a job or new client out of your neediness!! Instead of neediness, you need a method, a strategy, and a well constructed PLAN for getting in front of people.
Here's an email I received recently from someone using this method:
From: Darci O.
To: Darrell W. Gurney
Subject: Great research interview today!
Today I interviewed a senior financial advisor (and CFO) for [confidential], where a good friend of mine works - and it was a great interview - he told me alot of interesting things regarding my questions, and SURE ENOUGH, he automatically asked me if I wanted to talk to their CEO and COO, as they have interesting perspectives as well.
So that will be set up shortly and I'm still over the moon about all this.
He also asked me if I was looking for a job, so I casually alluded to being available (not desperate though!). Then he remembered that a gal who was VP of Production at [confidential] just departed the company after 15 years. He didn't know anyone directly, but gave me the name of the manager over there - so we're probably talking about an unadvertised job at this point.
He also had a good look at my resume and said it looked great.
We really jived - but my friend knew we would because she's known him a long while and he's an inspired, networky type.
Anyway, I'm amazed!
When I leave these backdoor interviews I feel sooo good - there's something highly worthwhile at play here (something dynamic).
Also, I feel when I interview with HR tomorrow at [confidential] where that other amazing backdoor connection happened last week, that I'm not nervous in the least - because I feel like i'm out there interviewing all over already...and I feel completely prepared! Thanks for this - it is the gift of self-esteem and self-worth in job search! :D
All the best,

You'll likely get more value than your tuition simply from the goodies that will come from the networking you'll do during the 3 weeks of the course!
And, speaking of tuition, because 1) now is always the BEST TIME to make a fresh start in your career dreams (if not now, when??), and 2) I want you to gain certainty in your own ability to call your career shots in the face of fiscal uncertainty or sequestrations, I'm going to make a "DreamJobLife" special offer that's simple and affordable so you have every reason to get this knowledge that will dramatically shift your career prospects NOW, not later.
For the "DreamJobLife" special offer, I'm giving you a special opportunity to grab a seat for yourself through Wednesday, Mar. 6, for a literal giveaway (when you add up the bonuses).
On Wednesday, Mar. 6, the tuition goes up because I want to fill the seats early for planning purposes (so I'm giving you an incentives NOW) as well as to honor those who decide early to grab the available spots. So, I'd register quickly...to get all that you'll see below!
$97 to Grab a Seat
("DreamJobLife" Special Offer, by 11:59pm PST 3/6/13)
To grab a seat for for only $97,
Wait, is there a zero missing? Is that figure a typo? No there isn't, and no it isn't.
That's the tuition for the first Early-Bird-savvy folks who see this as the incredible chance it is to learn a proven method (endorsed by some heavy hitter thought leaders) that will have connections, relationships, and opportunities pouring in to you.
Not to drag on about it, but that's only a third of my hourly rate to work with you personally...yet you get 8 full hours with me over 3 weeks and a supportive group and team structure (a "DreamJobLife Dream Team) to last beyond the course!
Matter of fact, I hope that so handles your ability to attend that I'm going to stop right here so you can get signed up...except for several extraordinary bonuses that start to fall off the longer you wait to register (so I'd move fast). The bonuses alone are worth more than the tuition!
Bonus #1) My new ebook, "Finding the S Spot: Career Pleasure Secrets for Merging Skills, Play & Pay" (Value: $20)...so you can get REALLY clear about the direction you want to take your career, which will make your experience in this 2-day course even more effective and fulfilling.
"Every so often along comes a book that feels more like a conversation with an old friend. It seems to know you, it asks all the right questions and at the end it holds up a mirror showing an insightful reflection. Finding the S Spot is that book! The questions keep coming, the sequence makes a lot of sense, the advice is priceless and the result is unexpected. It is well worth the read and the time invested. I enjoyed and I am sure you will as well."—Alex Marinescu, MBA, Sales Manager/General Manager
"All of us are searching for our career sweet spot, but rarely know how to do it. Darrell gives you the tools and road map to find the optimal career and to do it on your own terms. For anyone wanting to better their life and follow their calling, this is required reading--whether you're just entering the working world or retiring and beginning a second career."—Joe Platnick, Partner, Venture Capital Firm
"Finding the S Spot playfully suggests insightful and clever ways of determining your next career move. As someone recently leaving undergrad, I would not have thought rigorously about my physical environment, for example, nor would I have united multiple job descriptins to create a new one of my own. Finding the S Spot is a useful tool on the path toward satisfying employment."—Camille Bridges, New Grad and Management Consultant
"I really think it's brilliant how Darrell packed so much empowerment in such a few pages! I can't think of anyone who would ready this book and not have it make a profound difference in how they look at their choices in life, especially pertaining to careers, and how they could not walk away feeling uplifted, re-energized, and inspired! BRAVO!! This will benefit so many people in so many ways, I will be shocked if this isn't a bestseller."—Rafe Leyva, Founder, InnerVision Marketing and Mastermind
Bonus #2) My award-winning book, "Headhunters Revealed! Career Secrets for Choosing and Using Professional Recruiters" (Value: $15)...because I want you to know how to make the best use of recruiters in these times where the right recruiter can be a Godsend (even though I'm going to teach you to be your own headhunter!)

To: Darrell Gurney
Guess what I came home to today? This email from my friend, who backdoored me into the meeting yesterday with the CFO.
Subject: research interviews
I wanted to follow up with you regarding additional referrals for your research project. Colby has reached out to both Gary, President and Bob, COO here at [confidential] and each has agreed to meet with you for 20 minutes to discuss your questions. I am copying Beverly (Bob’s assistant) and Debbie (Gary’s assistant) as they can help coordinate separate meeting times. I believe that both are busy up through Thanksgiving so it would have to be after the holiday. No need to keep either Colby or myself on copy re the scheduling emails.
Thanks, and please let me know when you will be in our offices so I can make sure I’m around and available for a visit and/or lunch.
Associate Vice President, Royalties
