Excerpt: 'Fired to Hired'

She told me that I probably wouldn't believe it now—nor would I want to hear it—but that in no time I'd look back and realize that this was the best thing that ever happened to me.

I deleted the message—angrily. How could this successful, rich, powerful Kennedy girl, the gorgeous wife of a movie star, know how I felt? What did she know about having the carpet ripped out from under her, about being afraid where the next month's rent would come from?

But there's a reason Maria is a success at whatever she does. She's no dummy. And after the benefit of some distance, I realized she was absolutely right. This was indeed the best thing that could have happened to me. Now in FIRED TO HIRED, I share my tales of woe, and my steps to triumph as the CEO of Women For Hire and the workplace contributor on ABC's Good Morning America. I let it all hang out. And along the way, I offer readers like you solid advice on how to get hired today. Job searchng now isn't what it was 20 years ago—or even two years ago.
