Mark Teller was living on welfare in January of 2006. He had worked for himself all of his life. He had never even written a resume. Eighteen months later he cashed $8,100 in a single week, mostly from Fortune 500 companies. Teller created an imaginary job history, invented skills, and talked his way into top-paying jobs that others might only dream about. His courage, optimism and dark humor provide a compelling tale of how to succeed in corporate America when the odds are stacked against you.
Amazing True Story

- Wow interviewers and get hired
- Beware of the warning signs of malicious recruiters and their bag of tricks
- Avoid runaway jobs that never materialize
- Get the best money for your time, even while everyone is trying to gang-bang you
- Turn a two-week assignment into $75,000 in easy cash
- “Stack” three jobs without suffering a stroke or heart attack (at least temporarily)

- Were told that you were not qualified,even though you thought you were a shoo-in
- Took the phone interview and then got turned down
- Interviewed in person and did not get hired
- Were told you would be hired but never got the job
- failed even though you thought you were doing your best job search
