Review

"An exceptionally easy-read, in a conversational style that's like chatting to a knowledgeable mate who passionately wants you to succeed. It bubbles over with nuggets on every page. It is a highly practical book, based on his experience as a successful recruiter and business owner, is free of jargon and full of vivid language. It'll definitely leave you feeling all the more wiser and motivated to get that job." --Nicky Torode, Raise Your Game

About the Author

Simon Gray began his recruitment career in 1999. Ten years later, he jointly founded Cherry Professional Limited, a recruitment business dedicated to providing the best career advice to jobseekers. On this topic he is an experienced commentator on BBC Radio and is regularly quoted in the media, offering tips to both jobseekers and employers. Simon is also a Chartered Accountant and qualified with KPMG before embarking on his recruitment career - this specialism calls for rigour and a sense of detail in everything, something that he continues away from the office as an accomplished Martial Artist, spending two years living and training in Japan. In 'Super Secrets of the Successful Job Seeker', Simon combines this mental discipline, the psychology of people and his expert knowledge of the job market, to give the jobseeker that all important edge.

If you are looking for helpful, easy to follow strategies that you can follow and are simple to implement, buy this book; I have read 4 and it is the best job searching book - period. Practical, easy to read and to the point.

I started by taking on board Simon's advice on LinkedIn, messaged him and he was very responsive and helpful. Awesome!

As a person who has been with the same company since leaving University and is making the initial forays into the job market after almost 20 years, the advice within this book is proving to be priceless.

It is clearly written with the focus being on treating your new career search as a job in its own right.

Some excellent tools and techniques to put you ahead of the game.

This book genuinely and delightfully took me by suprise. Simon and I found each other via social media and he kindly sent me his excellent book to review. What was I expecting? something about CV writing and being a great interviewee. Yes that's in there BUT this is a genuine and well thought through road map for the job seeker IN THE MODERN AGE. The book uses terms like networking, referrals, mindset, relationships, discipline, social media and LinkedIn. You are rightly left in no doubt that the world has changed and you as the job seeker have to change with it. The successful job seeker is a marketer and the product is you. If you tackle marketing yourself in exactly the same way as you would sell a product or service by fostering and leveraging your network then you will dramatically improve your chances of securing the right position. Sadly and increasingly there are many more job seekers and I for one will do all I can through my network to ensure they have the opportunity to seek and actively use Simon's advice.

I was put in touch with Simon Gray in October 2013 through an executive coach and have worked with Simon for the past 9 months to guide me in my job search. As a senior executive from the aerospace and aviation sector, I was new to the job search landscape and felt very much out of place. I immediately bought this book, read it and met with Simon who immediately alleviated my concerns and was (and continues to be) incredibly valuable in advising me how to go about major career transitions - from finding the right type of companies to work for, through interview techniques and up to negotiating the offer. Simon is incredibly experienced at the entire job search process and is of immense value to any manager (junior or senior) going through this process.

More specifically, Simon’s strengths are his ability to challenge assumptions (many of which are likely to be false), to get people to think differently when they approach their job search and most importantly, to help people maintain a very high degree of confidence and positive thinking as they go through a challenging transition of finding their next job. Simon is a very personable person, able to relate to others extremely well (I’m an American, having worked in 5 different countries and he is much better at this than I am!) My job search has been a global one and Simon’s experience and approach has helped me significantly, by staying focused on the process of how to find my next job, and not necessarily the outcome of landing the job, which really helped my thinking and approach. It was Simon’s ability to get me to think differently and approach the job search unlike anything I’ve ever read or heard (e.g.

This is a very well written practical guide for any kind of job seeker. The positive psychology behind what Simon writes has massively helped me to move forward.

Great examples help to get you into the right mindset and help you to make sure you don't make the common mistakes. Most importantly, in the current climate, how to get yourself noticed.

A brilliant eye opening read, I look forward to putting all the advice into action.

Simon has written a fantastic, funny and easy to follow step by step guide for a successful jobseeker, giving top but also simple tips on how to approach the job market for the first time. I read this on my train down to London for my first meeting and found the chapter on Interviews particularly insightful, giving me the confidence I needed going into the interview feeling all the better for reading this book! The other chapters on networking and utilising online tools such as LinkedIn properly offers great advice for exploring avenues that normally jobseekers would overlook without reading this book. Overall this is a must read for any graduate fresh out of university looking for a job or anybody considering a career change!
