The book was co-written by Carmel resident Dale Hinshaw and Fishers residents Tom Faulconer and Mike Johnson.

The three work together in a group called Team Networking Group.

“We have a group process where we work with professionals trying to find jobs,” Hinshaw said. “The book is based on our work together the last three years.”

Hinshaw mentioned to Faulconer that he wanted to write a book, so Faulconer offered his expertise. He had previously written a true crime book in 2001.

The book takes the reader step-by-step through the job search process.

“We lay the process out very clearly to the steps in sequence people should follow in order to find a job,” Hinshaw said. “We talk about writing a resume, using LinkedIn, getting letters of recommendation, creating cover letters and marketing yourself.”

Any level of applicant will be able to utilize the tips in the book.

“It’s really for anyone searching for a job,” Hinshaw said. “It could be used by someone who just got out of high school to someone who has been in the working world for years.”

The authors hosted a book signing and celebration Nov. 28 to get the word out about the book. About 75 people attended. The authors sold an additional 30 books that evening.

“It was a great turnout,” Faulconer said. “We had quite a few people that brought ones that they had purchased previously. It was a really fun evening.”

The book is $18.99. Learn more at amazon.com/Survive-Thrive-Your-Job-Search/dp/145822208X.
