I always believe in investing in yourself and keeping you options open. Especially with the pace of rapid change!!! Remember look for the the industries that are growing!!! Definitely a recommended a buy. This will give you the edge over other applicants.
I particularly like the sample CVs to help you get yours the best it can be and also shows examples of not so great CV's. I found this to be really valuable when I updated my CV and realised things have changed considerably since I last had to write one. I have not completed the book as it is a work in progress. I am reading bits that are relevant to me right now and putting those ideas and suggestions into practise before moving onto the next bit. So far the suggestions have been useful and eye opening. Quite staggering how quickly things can turn around once you know the best way to do something.
I have also had the pleasure of meeting the author, who is freindly and passionate about what he does. The advice and suggestions left me buzzing with enthusiasm when I left the meeting to go home.
I have since downloaded a copy of this book to my Kindle as it is so useful and take it everywhere with me so I can dip in and out of it as I need to .
I like Richard's style, jocular and informative, which makes a potentially dry subject easy to read. I enjoyed his previous book "My boss is a b*stard".
I've given the book 4 Stars instead of 5 because I've only just started job hunting myself, and won't feel comfortable to rate it higher until I find a new role!
Job Hunting 3.0 stands out from other boks of this nature because it is very much in-tune with modern social network based job-hunting. A great investment.
This book is an easy read, contains a wealth of useful information & vital suggestions and is a must for anyone looking for employment at any level. The CV advice, Minute to Win It and section on interviewing I found amongst the best advice I have received and put them to good effect at an important meeting yesterday.
The book has definitely made the challenge of finding a job a lot less daunting and is superb value. Buy it and you won't regret it.
This book teaches you how to apply yourself, how to understand and use your skills to put forward at an interview
One thing i noticed in this book, it doesn't tell you to apply for a job you don't want, take the hint...job centres! With the help of this book, you'll know how to apply yourself, however, if you are on JSA - you cant follow what this book says, as it only trains you to go for the jobs you have skills for, the Job Centre would have you doing unskilled work, anything to get you back to work.
My advice is to buy this book, learn from it and use it for those jobs you do have skills for.. And just keep applying in mass for other jobs to keep the Job Centre people happy
The book takes you logically through the process you need to follow to build your plan to find a new job and its UK slant helps immensely from a local market perspective.
In following this process you also rebuild your confidence (yes I realise that's a but wish washy but for me it was very true) it helped me to understand the key parts of the process and also that I'm Okay! And, I now have a new job which is one of my thoroughbreds and I'm very excited to start.
If you need to find a job, buy this book!
