Just the Job!: Smart and Fast Strategies to Get the Perfect Job
by John Lees
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Practical, accessible, motivational!, 10 July 2013
Finding a new job, never mind the perfect job, in today's challenging environment can be a pretty daunting affair. If you're looking for your first job after school or university, because you need a new challenge or redundancy has forced the situation upon you, John Lees offers practical and contemporary advice that actually works. His accessible and informative style and insightful content will definitely help anyone to create a smart strategy from the outset, avoid common pitfalls and find out how to market themselves effectively to both recruiters and employers. As founder and editor of the careers advice websites newlifenetwork.co.uk and mygraduatecareer.com, I know only too well how much solid advice like this can help. Well worth the cover price.


How to Get a Graduate Job in a Recession

4.0 out of 5 stars Thumbs up from mygraduatecareer.com!, 5 July 2013
For a while here at mygraduatecareer.com HQ, we've been following Tanya De Grunwald, founder of the Graduatefog website and feisty campaigner for paid internships. Like us, she was frustrated by the lack of decent careers advice for new graduates, made worse by a poor jobs market in a long, tough recession. Like us, she decided to do something about it rather than wait for someone else to do it for her. It's an important quality for survival in the current jobs market. For a generation of young people who have been made passive by an 'all shall win prizes' school culture and fed a fake dream that a a fistful of top exam grades would magically open the door to a land of milk and honey, the cold hard reality of how to get a job, any job, has come hard. Enter no-nonsense, 'tell it like it is' Tanya. She's done her homework, consulted people like recruiters and employers who actually know what they're talking about as well as adding her own experiences, covered all the bases and she's funny and passionate about your future. For the price of a couple of Happy Hour cocktails, you too could be seizing life by the throat and getting the start in life you'd always hoped for - buy yourself a copy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Comfort TV, 7 Feb 2013

I enjoyed the weekly series but a box set is a treat to watch end to end on a cold sunday afternoon - you've heard of comfort food. This is comfort TV.

Adds just the right amount of shine to curly hair. A little goes a long way so it might look expensive but it lasts ages. .

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent drama, 18 Dec 2012

Great series, only wish they would commission a new one. Idris Elba is fantastic in this, the rest of the cast are great too. Quirky story lines and atmospheric filming.

3.0 out of 5 stars Handy for the winter, 18 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great for an ungaraged car to get a quick start on a frosty morning or when a car is left in a commuter or work car park all day when the weather is bad. Best to have storage handy in the boot for it when you take it off though.

We all need to do what we can to encourage insects, particularly solitary bees, in our gardens - this is a practical and stylish solution.

Lovely watch. Shame that the packaging it came in was not sufficient to protect the glass case it came in. It was shattered. Luckily the watch had a protective cover on it.


The Definitive Job Book: Rules from the Recruitment Insiders
The Definitive Job Book: Rules from the Recruitment Insiders
by Anne Watson
Edition: Paperback
Price: £11.86

5.0 out of 5 stars Real value for money, 27 July 2009
Anne Watson has created a book that offers really practical advice covering the recruitment process from start to finish in a very no nonsense manner. You don't ever feel that she is being patronising or simply padding the pages as many 'one-trick pony' career books often do. The book also includes valuable insights from people who are actually active in the career management food chain - everyone from HR Directors to Headhunters to coaches.
