Phil Blair, executive officer of Manpower-West in San Diego, can add “best-selling author” to his resume now that his book  “Job Won! 500,000 Hires and Counting” ranks first in two categories on Amazon.

Published in 2014, the book ranks at the top in Amazon’s job hunting and vocational guidance categories. The 188-page guide provides practical advice, tips and strategy for finding a job.

“Job Won” by Phil Blair

“I’m both proud and inspired to reach this status,” said Blair, “because it means that my career-long message of encouraging job-seekers to pursue their career goals with practicality and passion has found an even larger audience.”

Blair, who has spent 30 years in the temporary- and permanent- placement staffing industry, has become a frequently-quoted leader and speaker in the field.

He is a frequent contributor to Times of San Diego with columns about job hunting.

Owned and operated by Phil Blair along with business partner Mel Katz since 1977, Manpower-West ranks as the largest Manpower franchise in the U.S.
