Finding the perfect job, and then actually securing the perfect job, is not easy. But it is possible with the right guidance.
Are you in a job which does not fulfil you, does not show you enough respect, does not give enough career opportunities, or does not pay you enough? Or perhaps you are unemployed and finding it difficult to get onto the job ladder?
Ian Todd gives you real, practical advice in the third edition of this best-selling book. It's a no-nonsense guide to finding and securing the right job, covering topics such as:

"Todays job market can be vicious and at times impenetrable - thankfully this very simple to follow guide will walk you through everything you need to get the job you have always dreamt of!" (Forbes Magazine)
"Ian Todd has been an expert in this field for the past 15 years. His advice is first class and this guide has finally made it accessible to everyone" (Hudson Employment Agency, New York)
"A perfect and quick to read digest with some of the most valuable advice I have ever seen. We recommend this to all of our clients." (Reed Job Agency, London)
This is a very useful resource for job hunters. I think it would be helpful for people just starting out in the working world as well as those of us who are changing careers later in life. I like that Ian Todd gets straight to the point. The advice is helpful and I felt more motivated after listening to it. I will probably listen to it again throughout my job hunt to keep that motivation up!
Good advice that helped me a lot, especially the parts to do with job applications, CV and interviews. Nice to hear something a little bit different, a different angle to advice I had heard int he past. For such a cheap book, i found it ultra helpful, thanks!
Great value for money. I found this book very very useful. This book is surely a perfect and precise guide to finding and fulfilling your dream job. The book stipulates on easy to follow tips that works out amazingly when implemented. I love how the book is precise and straight to the point. The author discusses on how to find your perfect job, look for an opportunity, and then prepare yourself throughout the interview stage. I was working in a company dealing with technology and software engineering. Being flesh from University, I was not granted opportunity to grow my skills and knowledge and was not even recognized or respected. I worked in the company for a year without being even allocated to a specific department. I was just being given the unplanned and unexpected odd jobs yet most of them were outside my area of specialty. I quit the job and was hunting for a more satisfactory one when I came across this book. I have learned much from it and by implementing the discussed strategies, I am seeing the hope of falling into my dream job soon. I have already attended two interviews and was impressed by my performance. Am now just waiting for the phone to ring. For those yet to get a hand on the book, I highly recommend it especially if you are unemployed or not satisfied.
Not sure sorry, I only have it on audio.
It worked for me!
Been unhappy for a while, struggling to find proper work. I found the advice in this book very useful in helping me actually find jobs (outside the usual ways that everyone is doing), do the CV / application properly, a good interview and ultimately get the job i wanted. Definitely worth it for the price of a coupe of cups of coffee!
"Useful, concise and to the point!"
Very useful resource. Helped me with some good general advice and also some valuable info for dealing with nerves at interviews, what to say, what to wear etc.
Narration was good and I liked that the book was quite short, it got to the point pretty quickly.
Finding the perfect job (and then passing the dreaded interview which has already been difficult for me) is not an easy thing to do, especially in todays job climate. I have read and listened to a few books in this genre but this is the first one that actually helped. Gave me some great and very valuable advice I was able to implement immediately. After listening to this book twice I found the whole job hunting process a LOT easier and smoother and I finally landed the job I always wanted, so, thanks to the author!
"Great motivation to push you on. Really helped me!"
I found this book useful on two accounts - firstly on helping me actually discover a job i wanted, helping me to navigate the jobs market and find new and more interesting places to find jobs. And secondly it really helped me to SECURE the job (my problem in the past) with a lot of good advice and tips for interview practice etc. Very useful book, cheers!
Very useful book to help with advice with finding and then obtaining my dream job. Already recommended this book to a few friends. Really good narration too, liked this a lot, thanks.
I will listen to it again to refer back to the advice I found particularly helpful.
It's helpful, uplifting, and even humorous at times! I made me feel positive about taking my next step in life.
Not really. As it's non fiction I found it easier to dip in and out when I had spare time.
"Really helped me focus on finding my dream job"
Really useful and helpful book. I love audiobooks that actually have a purpose and give advice that is easy to follow and implement and thankfully this is one of those books! I was having particular problems with interviews, always getting anxious, never knowing what to wear and how to behave. This is the part i found most useful. If i was to improve anything i would maybe have it a little longer but other than that a great book!
"Actually, very helpful - surprised!"
I will be totally honest and say i bought this book when drink and didn't listen to it for a month! But when i finally did, i was surprised at just how useful it was. Especially the advice on where to look outside the usual job market and how to approach and make connections etc. Very helpful
"Quit your job, find purpose, live life!"
This book is definitely in the top 5 audiobooks I've read. It really changed my life. Before this I was working a dead end job going nowhere. A typical 9-5 where I was a slave for my boss. Ian teaches you how to live for yourself and not for anybody else.
There is no character.
Phil knows how to motivate you. He really brought his "A" game when he did a voiceover for this book. He really makes you buy into the strategies that Ian has provided because he has followed them himself and become successful. I really applaud Phil for being professional and passionate.
Drop the 9 to 5 and live your dream job!
Overall this was a great book. I can't say enough about how Ian and Phil play off each other's strengths. Ian really goes in depth on how to move away from the 9 to 5 and discover your true self. Discovering your purpose in life and not living paycheque to paycheque. I actually became an entrepreneur after applying his ideas in 2 years. I worked towards my goal and used his guidelines everyday. This book changed my life.
"Tried the strategies and it worked!"
Great book - pretty short and to the point. Definitely gave me some advice I had never heard before which lead me directly to discovering and landing the job I always wanted. I found the section on what to say and how to behave at interviews particularly helpful.
I am currently seeking out a new job and I'm convinced that this book will set me off on the right path. For a long time, I've been telling myself that I'm not qualified to get a better position, but this book has convinced me that I can indeed find something better. The amount of actionable tips is simply numerous and I would recommend this to anybody who finds themselves wanting to test the waters of higher employment!
