I have been looking for a permanent paid job for a total of 7 years. I have volunteered but not got any consistently paid work. After 6 years, I did get one and then I was terminated after 3 months (for no good reason in my opinion).
I felt rejected, dejected, hard done by and discouraged. Well, I downloaded the free chapter of Mildred’s book from [...] and it immediately spoke to me and to my circumstances by confronting my victim mentality.
When I bought the actual book, chapter 7 showed me how to use my years of volunteering to get into my next paid job. Chapter 9 then talked to me about the hidden job market and I made up my mind to apply to the top 100 companies to work for. I also registered with recruitment agencies with key advice from chapter 13.
I amended my LinkedIn profile (chapter 14 showed me how), amended my CV (I had 51 tips to choose from in chapter 24) and drastically improved my cover letters (chapters 25 – 27).
One of the most amazing things that I discovered was that, as I kept a record of the jobs that I applied for, I could almost predict that for a specific number of jobs applied for, I could almost guarantee an interview. It then hit me – there is an actual science to job hunting.
When I got to the interview stage, I followed the tips on phone interviews (chapter 29), prepared and overcame the top tough interview questions (chapter 30 – and they were asked, as if on cue!) and asked the number 1 question, as directed in chapter 31.
On a Saturday evening, I had an email directly from a company who saw my CV and approached me directly (I’m not even sure that I can say I was ‘headhunted’ – it’s almost beyond my belief!) I replied on Sunday. They got back to me on a Monday and invited me in for an interview on the Tuesday.

What you will quickly gather from reading Mildred Talabi's book is that she has been there and walked the walk. From humble beginnings doing a Saturday job at Greggs the Bakers she built a career on the back of ideas and beliefs forged from her own experience. Her story is a very personal one but there are good messages here delivered with Mildred's characteristic enthusiasm. Her chapters on making the most of low-paid jobs, working for free and volunteering are especially worth reading.
