Mark Lyden – Veterans: Do This Get Hired

Do This! Get Hired! is Practical Help for Unemployed Veterans

You can NOT expect to get a job in THIS difficult job market by doing the same old things and following the same old advice.  IT WILL NOT WORK!  It is time to get advice that has been PROVEN to work especially in this difficult job market.  Even when nothing else works, this advice WILL!

When you talk to Mark and find out his story, you really get a sense that you are getting to know a real giver.

He and his wife are volunteers for many causes and Mark is doing great with his business and other projects, but when he heard about the unemployment rate of young veterans he was alarmed and wanted to do something. He had written a book to show people how to deal with recruiters and employers and he decided that he would fix it to focus on vets.

The book is full of great information which is broken down very simply. Listen to this interview, Mark gives many of his best tips right here, but buy the book as it helps support HonorVets.org and it really is a great resource.

Also if you know of any students or other professionals that may need some help; please pass this along because Mark’s books for college students and professionals are just as powerful and full of tried and true strategies that get results. – JW

book veterans do this get hiredVeterans: DO THIS GET HIRED

Filled with practical and easy to follow steps, on every major job search topic, which has proven to be extremely effective and has often been the difference between a candidate getting a job or not getting a job.

This book has one primary purpose: To Get Veterans Jobs! With the help of veterans from the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines this book was written by a current Professional Fortune 50 Lead Recruiter with nearly 15 years of experience.

Because the author recruits as his profession in this challenging job market every day, he knows what works and what doesn’t.

This is a no-nonsense guide to help vets get hired, even in this difficult job market –even if nothing else has worked.

A substantial portion of the proceeds from book sales are donated back to charity to help veterans at HonorVet.org and to help the stray and abandoned animals at Logan’s Run Rescue.


Mark Lyden is Senior College Recruiter for a Fortune 50 company and has been a professional college recruiter for over 10 years.

He has recruited candidates for small, medium, and large companies and has lead hundreds of college recruiting teams, events, and career fairs on college campuses across the country.

Mark has recruited for technical and non-technical majors at all levels from Freshman through Ph.D. and has recruited for Secret and Top Secret programs.

He has screened, taught, served as a mentor and interviewed thousands of college candidates and has formally presented to approximately 10,000 on various campuses across the United States.

In his career he managed one of the top Co-op / Intern programs in the country. This extensive experience gives him the unique insight and expertise to teach college students the best ways, the proven ways, to approach every major step of their job search process.

Plus because he currently is a Senior College Recruiter as his profession, he understands the challenges of this market.  Mark has a BS, MS, and one year of Ph.D. study in the areas of Business, Human Factors Engineering & Education, and Psychology respectfully.

is an expert at getting people jobs. He has already helped thousands get hired even in this difficult job market. For nearly 15-years, he has been a Professional Lead Recruiter for a Fortune 50 company.

His approach is fresh, practical, easy to follow, and extremely effective. In his recruiting career he has recruited for small, medium, and large companies and organizations.

Mark has screened, taught, mentored and interviewed thousands of candidates and has presented job search seminars across the country. His extensive experience plus the fact that he recruits each day in this difficult job market, gives him the unique insight on the best ways –the proven ways to approach every major step of the job search process so candidates have the best chance at getting hired.

Mr. Lyden’s practical and easy to follow steps, on every major job search topic, has been extremely effective and has often been the difference between a candidate getting a job or not getting a job.

Mark Lyden’s previous top selling book, “College Students: Do This! Get Hired!” has been featured in major news outlets like CNNMoney.com, The Washington Post, and many others. It has helped thousands and thousands get hired.  Now Mark has turned his attention and expertise to helping veterans get jobs.

Mark’s style and approach is fresh and very effective. Those reading or hearing his advice in a seminar are always surprised to learn something new and often discover that what has been holding them back or a mistake they have been making over and over that prevented them from getting hired.

Finally what makes Mr. Lyden’s advice and information so valuable is that it works! But there is a reason why it works better than other information and why so many people get hired with his advice. Every step, trick, tip, or technique he provides has a strong logical reasoning behind it backed up by nearly 15 years of experience.

Anyone can give opinions of what they think might work, or what may have worked for them, but it takes someone doing the job as a Professional Recruiter in this difficult job market to KNOW what works and what specifically you need to do to get hired.


HonorVet.org reviewed the book and said: “If you’re a veteran you need to read this book! Best advice for getting hired that we have ever read.” With his advice, Mark has already helped thousands of people get hired, even in this challenging job market.

What makes his advice different from what you can find on the Internet or in other “How to get a job” books is that his advice has been PROVEN to work.

“If you’re a veteran you need to read this book! Best advice for getting hired that we have ever read.” – HonorVet.org

Because he currently works recruiting in this job market every day, Mark has a unique perspective on what exactly veterans need to do to have the best chance at getting hired. I am a returning Iraq veteran with disabilities. Since being home I have been fired from (2) civilian jobs and turned down for at least 30. I then received Mark’s book, Veterans: Do This! Get Hired! I read it cover to cover in the parking lot of the post office.

The information is straight forward and easy as hell to understand. I followed his advise in chapters 2&3 to the letter. I saw immediate results on the same day I posted my resume by getting 3 requests for interviews. Mark is on- target with this information. ” –  Matt K. U.S Army (Ret.) Panama/Iraq/Somilia

JW and Bob Interview Santa Claus

A Rare Opportunity Came Our Way and We Could Not Turn the Old Guy Down

pic jw and bob santaMy old partner, Bob Schecter and I got the rare opportunity to talk to Santa about how he is doing and what’s happening at the North Pole.


pic santaIt is not often we get an exclusive like this one. We caught Santa at his home in Arizona for a short interview.

Santa was very gracious and answered all our questions

We are so honored and excited as we are big fans. Even Bob, who is Jewish loves ole Santa- JW


Our Sincerest Thank You to Stephen B, the comedian that helped us put this together. Stephen said yes to this crazy idea of mine and did an amazing job of writing the whole script. Bob and I just played straight man and Stephen B made the magic.

stephen bStephen B

For nearly 30 years Stephen B has been making audiences laugh in comedy clubs, corporate venues and in churches of all denominations. With his high energy and animated delivery Stephen’s material runs the gamut from silly to poignant to the absurd but he never crosses the line to get a cheap laugh at the expense of decency. His opinionated observations on life and society juxtaposed with his own flaws and shortcomings make for a hilarious combination of rants, raves and stories that poke fun at the absurdity of being human.

Stephen has opened for headlining musical acts such as Manhattan Transfer, Al Di Meola, Weird Al Yankovic, Leon Redbone, Michael Bolton, Julio Iglesias and Randy Stonehill. You can see him at next year’s Spirit West Coast Festivals in San Diego and Monterey CA.



Special shout out to Diana Schecter for creating the fabulous video to go along with our interview.

Bill Crosby – Wickedly Smart Marketing and Social Media Strategies

Bill CrosbyBill Crosby; Not a Famous Actor or Comedian, but one of the hottest on-line marketers on the Web.

If you are a devotee of the social media circuit, (translation – you spend too much time on the internet) you have seen Bill Crosby’s face, voice or name, pop up on your screen somewhere.

If so, then Bill needs no introduction and I’m sure you’ll enjoy this interview.  However, if, unlike us Fools, you actually have a life, then you should know that Bill is one of the few internet marketing guys that we consider a mentor.  While he has far more to offer than we could put in a single interview, we did our best to get Bill out of his internet bubble as he joined us in the Fools Lounge.  And you’ll hear why we intend to have him back again and again.  Listen in!

Bill CrosbyWe don’t care about the number of followers he amassed.. it’s a lot. And we won’t get into the amount of money he’s made… we’re jealous. When it comes to the world of Twitter, and making the most of it, nobody knows the terrain better than Bill, so, we follow him.


One of the things that we like about Bill, is his willingness to share his knowledge. Yes, he does it to make money, of course, but he does it in earnest. To that end, he keeps the price of his products as low as he can, and does his best to give more than he gets paid for.

Bill worked his fingers to the bone, to gain the knowledge, learn the techniques, and gamer the following that he has now. And actually, the Internet changes so very quickly that Bill readily admits he is still working his fingers to the bone. But that is exactly what motivates him to keep coming up with ways to “automate” the marketing process. With a clear understanding of how difficult it is to get started, Bill put together his Content Factory, the essence of which is to “Get Totally Customized Content Fed Into Your Social Media Networks Designed to Engage Your Current Followers, Get New Followers and Build YOur presence ON Autopilot!”

She’s gorgeous, he’s gorgeous … isn’t that enough?

Obviously not for this power-couple who are bent on carving out several places for themselves in the world.

And the old adage, “never judge a book by its cover”, applies here with all of its nuances.

We first got a glimpse of them at emmegirls.com, as many of their clients do, through a recommendation.

EmmeGirl Logo 01And, although their website is filled with the awful distraction of incredibly beautiful models, we managed to focus long enough to realize that there was more .. much, much more than meets the eye.

In fact, so much more that we were skeptical as to whether any mortals could actually survive, much less live their hectic lifestyle.  Of course, we just had to find out for ourselves.  Listen in as we get the story on Emme and Bruce Porter.


EmmeGirls Elite Model Staffing is the vision and concept of CEO, Emme Porter, a former Miss Massachusetts and current Washington Capitals NHL Cheerleader, and a graduate of Boston University. Though the company now has nation-wide reach, she still takes a hand-on approach in the hiring, so clients are assured that all spokesmodels meet Emme’s extremely high standards for personality and intellect … ok, and looks too.

Emme Girls

But EmmeGirls isn’t just about pretty faces representing and marketing your business.  COO, Bruce Porter, Jr., has parleyed over eight years of experience in SEO, web services development, web design, and technical training skills into creating a formidable marketing company whose staff happen to have … pretty faces.

When a client signs on with EmmeGirls, they, their company and product, find avenues for marketing that they might never have found elsewhere, or in so pretty a package.

How to Be The Perfect Networker

How to Be The Perfect Networker by Ken Rochon

So who is Ken Rochon and what can he teach me about being the perfect networker? Well first he is the author of the book “Becoming The Perfect Networker”  Succeeding One Connection at a time.

Ken is a passionate doer. He is a great networker because it is impossible for him not to be one. Ken loves people and places and has to go to every place he hears about and meet as many as he can get to.

But Ken is not just excited about meeting others, he has taken the time to put the new social media to the test, by joining just about everything and trying everything else.

Ken’s book is an homage to his triumphs and failures and he shares all he has learned. Ken is about the Zen of Tao and his book gives exceptional down to earth advice on networking while also taking networking to an almost spiritual level.

Ken shares his love of graphics and print with his love of travel and people and has put together a complete guide to the universe of networking. He has not left anything out. Ken not only belongs to most of the important social networking sites, but he has his own rather successful site and he uses his site to preach and teach his style and method of networking that covers every inch of the web from blogging to social media, marketing and networking. Ken also seems to take everything to the next step.

The Perfect Networker Site


Perfect Networker is a community designed to help connect you with business professionals from all over the world!

We are a community of collaboration… an open network designed to facilitate the needs of its members. We encourage our members to connect with others, share ideas, refer business, generate support for a project, take an online conversation offline and build a relationship!

Perfect Networker is a community of business professionals committed to supporting each others’ success. Take the time to build valuable business relationships by connecting with the members here and your business will thrive!

Yes this book is crammed full of useful information and some that seems not to belong like a page of Universal Hand Signing, but as you get to know Ken you will get why this belongs in a networking book. Ken has taken the time to learn to say hello in a staggering amount of languages and has added them here for you to learn also.

Ken is eclectic, funny, brilliant and at times a bit crazy, but it is working for Ken and many others. Ken gets that networking is not about collecting lists of names or peoples cards, but don’t ever forget your card or Ken will probably roll his eyes at you.

Bob Schecter and I got the chance to talk with Ken about becoming the Perfect Networker and I have to say I am not sure we got to the point where we actually answered the question straight out, but we did get to the hear from the part of Ken that makes him a perfect networker. His love and concern for others. He is now part of a reality TV show called the “Goodfellas” where the participants were choosen because of their philanthropic natures.

Ken is Becoming The Perfect Networker and he can help you become one too.

Ken was late to the call, which sucked and I have to say it took me a minute to warm up to him, probably cause he was late, but we soon got on a rant and went too far in too many directions, but although we usually do a fair amount of cutting and editing to make sure these audio podcasts stay interesting, I decided to leave the conversation as is because I wanted the listener to make up their own minds.

I also left the first 15 or 20 minutes of the call where Bob and I were waiting for Ken as this stuff was very interesting, as we talked about upcoming and past shows and just had some fun.

If you get a moment you can also visit Ken at www.KenRochon.com. Ken is an avid photographer and you have to see his shots he has taken all over the world. I look forward to having another more pointed conversation with Ken.

We hope you enjoy this Networking Fools Audio Podcast Presentation, a Network Alchemists Production.

And don’t forget to check out Ken’s newest book, “How To Make Friends Around the World”.   It will teach you or your child how to speak 9 of the biggest languages in the World. They will never be the same when they can relate to so many. Sale price is $20 plus $5 shipping and handling. Order 2 and shipping and handling is FREE.
