5.0 out of 5 stars A must read, 24 Nov. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Brilliant Employability Skills: How to Stand Out from the Crowd in the Graduate Job Market (Paperback)
This is an amazing book, by someone that you know is not just saying what she 'thinks' will work, but who has worked on the 'front lines' with students and seen many success stories over the years. She has also experience of what industry and employers are looking for, and there are some really great tips scattered throughout the book. My son has not yet started university but it is a book that I feel he needs now even at 16!(better to be prepared, so he knows what he has to aim for!). The style is written in a very down to earth manner and doesn't blind you with unrealistic challenges but enables the reader to gain the insight, the advice, the experience they need to have a successful career. I am hoping that Frances Trought will go on to write many more books as the situation for students are becoming harder and more competitive and there are no guarantees, employers are now looking for that X Factor! You definitely won't regret purchasing a copy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Reading, 13 Nov. 2011
This review is from: Brilliant Employability Skills: How to Stand Out from the Crowd in the Graduate Job Market (Paperback)
This is an easy to read, straightforward guide on how graduates can develop the skills they need to stand out from the crowd and get employment. The model presented in this book makes the concept of branding simple to understand and practical enough to implement successfully. There is also plenty of useful advice and tips provided. I think this book should be read by all undergraduates long before they become graduates.

4.0 out of 5 stars As it says...., 1 Nov. 2013

This review is from: Brilliant Employability Skills: How to Stand Out from the Crowd in the Graduate Job Market (Paperback)
Does seem to state the obvious at times, but maybe that is good as it reinforces that you were already thinking along the right lines. The graphs and research are very useful! Over 50% of those who already did some sort of relevant work experience/placement got through to get the job (Basically cutting half the competition out, if you've got that box ticked)
