Headhunter Confidential: How to Get the Best Jobs and the Best People—Exclusive Tips from One of the Top Headhunters in the Business, Random House (New York, NY), 2002.
As chairman and chief executive officer of Christian & Timbers, Jeffrey E. Christian presides over one of the nation's top executive placement firms. Christian has found top executives for such corporations as Adobe, General Electric, Microsoft, and Hewlett-Packard and has discussed his headhunting techniques in the press and on television. In 2002 he published Headhunter Confidential: How to Get the Best Jobs and the Best People—Exclusive Tips from One of the Top Headhunters in the Business, a book that delineates his techniques and demonstrates how he developed them over his own career. Part memoir, part advice tome, Headhunter Confidential explores strategies for finding, interviewing, hiring, and retaining valuable employees. As Mary Whaley put it in Booklist, Christian "aims to help readers find the smartest, most creative, and hardest-working talent available." Lucy Heckman in Library Journal described Headhunter Confidential as a "practical and highly informative guide."
