In contrast to traditional job search methods, the positioning approach shows you how to increase your chances of securing your preferred job by placing yourself close to the person with whom you want to work, the place or organization where you want to work, or the position that fulfills your career goals.

He also offers techniques for succeeding in more traditional job searches, including preparing for the formal job interview.
