9780077127589: Career Reboot: 24 Tips for Tough Times

How does anyone make sense of work and career choice in times as tough as this?

This book encourages you to break out of a rut and start to make things happen in your career. Packed with practical tips for rejuvenating your career, this book is a must for anyone striking out into a difficult job market after redundancy or simply looking for new opportunities in tough times.

This book is designed to help you get out of a hole if you’re career-panicked, especially if you’re coping with redundancy. Section 1 – Taking Stock checks your thinking before you throw yourself into job search mode. Section 2 – Planning Your Strategy gives you insights into the way the market works and the way recruiters and employers react to the different behaviours adopted by job seekers. Section 3 – Your Message To The Marketplace provides a series of checklists to show you how to sell yourself on paper, including the reason why so many CVs and cover letters fail, and Section 4 – Interview Secrets reveals how to make an impact in the final stages of the selection process. Finally Section 5 – Looking Forward provides some longer-term career strategies.
