Sound impossible? Fortunately, it’s not. You just need to arm yourself with the right knowledge and tools.
Unfortunately, if you’re like most job seekers today, you’re using outdated job search techniques for a workplace that no longer exists. You’re still playing by the old rules, not understanding that the rules of the game have changed dramatically as employers have developed new ways of finding and securing the talent they need. No wonder you’re frustrated!
Whether you’ve been laid off and need a job quickly, are a Veteran transitioning back to civilian life, or just want a better job, Jay Block’s 5 Steps to Rapid Employment™ program can help you quickly land the job you want, at the pay you deserve.
Recent graduates of the program have landed jobs in less than half the time of the national average. Many have reported that it not only led to quick employment, but also literally changed every aspect of their lives.
“The whole concept is wonderful. I now have a direction! I now feel motivated and capable. Before, I did not know where to start (looking for a job) but now I have the mind set to get out there and I know I will get a job.” (Linda Schindler)
Previously, the program had been offered exclusively in limited locations around the country in a blended format that combined web-based instruction with classroom sessions. While producing extraordinary results for those who could attend, availability was extremely limited and geographical proximity was required* .
We recognized that not everyone could attend one of these blended sessions, and that we could help many more people benefit from the program if we could make it more accessible. And so, we are now making it available in a convenient online course: The 5 Steps to Rapid Employment System, an innovative multi-media guide to landing your next job.
“It was even better than I had imagined. Not only did I get caught up on current trends in “job campaigning”, this course put me on the cutting edge and gave me an advantage over 99% of other job seekers. I went from no interviews to two in the same week. The course is built upon timeless wisdom which makes the new knowledge more impactful.” (Robert Condon)
What makes the 5 Steps to Rapid Employment System different?
Provides a systematic, step-by-step process that takes the mystery and guess work out of landing a job. You’ll know where to start and what to do next along the way.
- Positions work as an integral part of the life you want to lead, taking into account your values, interests, and strengths.
- Puts you in charge of your plan, helping you regain control over your life and your job “campaign.”
- Teaches you how to develop a package of self-marketing tools that goes beyond the traditional resume.
- Web-based design includes instruction and downloadable study guides and activities, provides 24/7 access for 6 months, and lets you work at your own pace.
- Gives tremendous value: at the introductory price of $197 (less than the cost of a couple of hours of career coaching services), you get a soup-to-nuts system that helps you land the job you want, at the pay you deserve.
“Using many of the skills and practices that I learned in the program, I was able to negotiate a salary that was $7,500 more then what they were originally offering, which is a big deal for a non-profit! . . . During my campaign, I had the confidence to go after what I wanted and not to settle for something just to have a job.” (Kati Townsley)
“I had hit a wall in my job search prior to 5 Steps, so much (so) that I wasn’t applying to jobs at all.
I feel now that I have a great chance at landing more interviews. The campaign I created in the 5 Steps course is a great road map I can now follow and adapt on my journey to my Dream Job.” (Blaise Nealon)

Want more proof? What People are Saying about the 5 Steps to Rapid Employment program
“For the better part of a year I had been struggling to carve out time for a new career campaign. I was literally chasing hundreds of Internet job postings with my tired, boring resume and it was netting me basically nothing but frustration and failure. Inexplicably, I still held out hope for an opportunity to appear, but take it from me, hope is not a strategy!
The 5 Steps to Rapid Employment IS the strategy. I’ve not only aligned my personal values with my work values, but I’ve completely re-worked my resume and attitude about my job campaign. The . . . investment in the 5 Steps program has helped me feel confident targeting the job I want at the pay I deserve. Armed with what to do and how to do it, I now have much better tools to help me find employment.” (Ross Dangel)
