Get That Job! (Author Interview)

‘Get That Job!’ is a #1 Best Seller on Amazon, congratulations!  Can you tell us why the book is such a hit among your readers?
I think it is very easy to read and provides a simple guide to help you gain confidence when going into your next job.

How long did it take you to write ‘Get That Job!’?

Probably about six months. I’ve had it done for a while, and just needed to build the confidence to put it out there. It’s kind of an intimidating process if you’ve never done it before. But now I’ve got my first book out, I will continue to develop more books.

What inspired you when writing ‘Get That Job!’?  

The students at the college have inspired me to write books. They come with questions and concerns about different challenges they face, and I felt that if they were feeling this way, then the majority of college students will most likely be feeling the same way.

Do you get a lot of success stories from your readers?

My book has been out for just over a month, so yes, I’ve had some great feedback. Particularly, those that are unfamiliar with video interviews. And, basically those that need to prepare prior to and during one.

How did you come up with the ideas in ‘Get That Job!’?

I thought about all the challenges our students face and what information they would need to help them be successful.

Did anything stick out as particularly challenging when writing the book?

Just trying to keep it simple for young readers of all skills and reading abilities.

What do you like to do when not writing?

I love to work. So, usually I try to focus on different current projects I’ve got going on. Whether it involves my nonprofit, AfrikRising or something else I have going on at my 8 to 5 job. I also like going on trips to Mexico, and spending quality time with my boys.
