Career Reboot: 24 Tips for Tough Times

John Lees
(Career Strategist)



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.
