Seeing your classmate dressed in black doing the awkward speedwalk-shuffle down Walnut means one of two things: Either s/he’s about to deliver a Status Report with a massive wedgie…or it’s OCR season. But for those looking to score jobs in finance or consulting or– nevermind, good looks and little bit of hustle can only get you so far.
Enter Wharton management professor Peter Cappelli, author of the new book, “Why Good People Can’t Get Jobs” about, well, why good people can’t get jobs. (Hint: being interviewed by your big-big-big-big-big doesn’t guarantee you a second-round interview.)
We won’t give away why it’s so hard to get hired, but you can download the book for free (FREE!). That’s probably a good thing, too, considering you have no money–at least until you find a job!
