Spotlight on Paul Rega

Published March 8, 2012 by Lorraine Nelson - Author

Please give a huge welcome to a man who has published a book that will help many obtain gainful employment.

Paul Rega is president of a retained executive search firm and a professional recruiter with over twenty-seven years of job hunting and career planning experience. His provocative new book, “How To Find A Job: When There Are No Jobs” strikes a nerve with millions of displaced workers and goes well beyond the principles of job hunting. Paul introduces a revolutionary concept in career management and personal development called “Intuitive Personal Assessment.” He takes his readers on a powerful journey as he tells a gripping story about his own career and the challenges faced as an executive recruiter, often fraught with personal tragedy. This is a must read for anyone who is looking for a new job or wants to change careers in the worst economy since the Great Depression.

The author shares his vast knowledge of career planning and the inner workings of the job search process, citing hundreds of proven and effective job search techniques. He explains how to market your background to a targeted audience, interviewing skills and techniques, network building strategies, how to utilize personal and business contacts, effective use of social media, including LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter, insider tips on working with headhunters, salary and benefits negotiation, how to write a resume, cover and follow-up letters, how to start and succeed in your own business and much more.

In a message to his readers, Paul believes that despite the many challenges faced by those suffering as a result of the weak job market, change in one’s life can be positive. He explains that, “Change throughout your life is inevitable, and as your life changes so often does your career.” His book is an effective guide that will provide you with the necessary tools, skills and inside knowledge from a professional recruiter to help you navigate through difficult economic times and find a new job or change careers.

  • Hi Paul,
    Your book sounds like a good read. How is it different from others publications of that ilk?
    My husband is a recruiter in a niche market, and the ups and downs are many and frequent, often he has the jobs but not the candiates. What would you day to someone like him, who also had 25 years experience in the recuriting industry.

    thanks so much,


    • Hi Rhonda,

      I would first ask him if he enjoys the business. Most people in that business do not last 25 years because of the stress levels. I’m sure he’s good at what he does but that doesn’t matter if he doesn’t like it. My book is much more than a job search book as it is written in a narrative style and tells a story about an executive recruiter that has been through a number of major life changing events. As your life changes, so often does your career. Have you even wondered how much better your doctor would be if they had recovered from a major illness? This book captures that from the perspective of a headhunter. Your husband may get a kick out of it and it may just help him to decide on his true career path. There is a chapter titled “Intuitive Personal Assessment” that is a self-guided career assessment program coupled with a unique goal setting segment. I hope I have answered your question.

      • Thank you, Paul!

        I got a kick out of your answer as many times I have seen my husband bang his head on the proverbial wall – stressing over stress – and taking on the stress of others. But, yes, after 25 years he has enjoyed many successes. He is very much a people person and feels truly rewarded when he has made a good match. I am sure you know that a recruiter is often thrust into the role of therapist/priest/parent, wheather he seeks it or not.

        So, maybe your book will make a peppy little birthday jolly in a couple of weeks.
        Yeh! No typos – I turned the lights on.

        Good luck with the book.


  • This book is a great read! I recently purchased this book on Amazon and already it has proven to be a benefit to my career. It gave me the confidence I needed to properly ask for a raise. Success! This is a wonderful book that will serve as a useful guide for years to come. I would encourage anyone who is serious about achieving their career goals to read this book.

  • I think this book will be a hit in the third world where there are no jobs for scores or is it hundreds of graduates. For those who have jobs already, the grinding stress of the daily routine that make it all so unrewarding, this book will serve to propel them into the next rewarding job, hopefully.
