New episode of Best Seller TV features author Bill Humbert addressing the science behind career searches and why recruitment is not the same as HR


New York, NY, March 15, 2022 Best Seller TV, the only show dedicated to covering today’s best-selling business books on C-Suite TV,  is announcing a new episode featuring Bill Humbert, author of Expect Success: The Science of the Over 50 Career Search.

Humbert’s extensive career has led him to the realization that many job applicants are going about their job search the wrong way. His four decades of experience – twenty-six of those years coaching professionals on how to find their next career – gives him the credibility and expertise needed to help many figure out the ‘science’ behind it all.

Humbert says there are four types of ‘science’ that most are unaware exist during their job search. Those are: mathematics, computer science, psychology, and sociology. Mathematics is applied because there are algorithms at play as well as salary negotiations, computer science involves artificial intelligence (AI), psychology pertains to what both the candidate and the manager are thinking and feeling, and sociology takes care of determining if the candidate is a good fit, culturally, for the company.

Throughout his career, Humbert explains how many job descriptions barely reflect what the actual job truly is and that the AI algorithms plays a significant role eliminating potentially qualified applicants. He adds that if the job requires a high school diploma, but the candidate has an MBA from Harvard, AI will delete them as a qualified individual.

How can people ‘fool’ the system?

Humbert reiterates that “HR is not your friend” and that candidates need to network their way in. He continues to say that only eight percent of jobs are filled through online postings, while seventy-five (or seventy-six) percent of jobs are filled by networking. He also reveals the trap that most job seekers fall into and that is the ‘marketing’ done by sites like Indeed or LinkedIn. That’ll make people “post and pray” they get a call for an interview when what they should do is use those sites to find the job, then go around them, network, find the managers and talk to them.

The book is a ‘101’ for anyone who may be a bit rusty writing resumes and feeling overwhelmed by the many changes taking place in the job search market.


All episodes of Best Seller TV air on C-Suite TV and are hosted by TV personality, Taryn Winter Brill.

Best-selling author, speaker, and former Fortune 100 CMO Jeffrey Hayzlett created Best Seller TV to give top-tier business authors a forum for sharing thought-provoking insights, in-depth business analysis, and their compelling personal narratives.

“The job market has changed too much over the years that it’s essential that we get a refresher course on things like writing a resume,” Hayzlett said. “Bill has decades of experience and is privy to all of the nuances taking place behind the scenes that would make it more difficult for any applicant looking for a job in the next phase of their career. Listen to Bill, get the book and get to work on finding that next job.”
