I wish I had read this book 15 years ago

When you read this book all of the ideas feel like common sense, obvious ideas. Unfortunately, I imagine I’m not along in admitting that many of them hadn’t occurred to me before. I wish I had read/listened to this book at the beginning of my career!

I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is looking for their first job, or hasn’t been through the process of finding a new job for a while.

Full of useful insights

The best part of this audiobook is actually not the parts about getting hired, it’s the parts about understanding what you truly want from a job so you end up applying for the right jobs (which increases your chances of getting the job). I’d never really thought about this before. I did the job motivation tool online and found it super helpful.

I received a promotional version of this audiobook at my request and I am voluntarily leaving my honest opinion here.

Well worth a listen if you’re looking for a job

I really like this book. The behind the scenes insights give you a picture of what happens behind closed door, what recruiters are actually looking for and how decisions are made. Well worth a listen if you’re looking for a job.

A great listen

This audiobook covers the basics really well and has a couple of especially helpful solutions, such as a SAR concept for answering interview questions. I’ve got my first interview since reading this book and am looking forward to using the things I learned.

A must for job seekers

This is a must for job seekers, and frankly I'm one of them, at a time when taking on two different part-time jobs is becoming increasingly the norm.
The narration is great - friendly and understanding. By first explaining his background and experience as a specialist in recruiting, the author provides a reassuring touch on a number of important matters when it comes to looking for a new job. He helps by first identifying our needs and ambitions, and uses this to help us discover how to search for jobs that match, and how to apply for that job. Constructive and helpful, this book has made me think anew about how I apply for jobs, and is written by someone really knows the job market. Thank you.

This book explains why you get asked the questions

I’ve tried a few books written about interview questions. They are great if that exact question comes up, but otherwise aren’t too helpful. This book explains why the interview asks the questions they do, so you understand how to form answers, rather than giving you a list of 100 cookie cutter answers. Far more helpful.

Top stuff for people who hate interviews.

This book has been incredibly helpful for me. The format takes you through the process of getting a job from start to finish. Personally, I was really stuck at the interview stage, so I skim read some of the early chapters. The interview stuff was great. Understanding how to prepare for interviews is something I’d never been taught at school or college, but it seems kinda obvious once you learn it. Understanding the different types of interview questions and how to answer them makes me a lot more relaxed about going to an interview.

Highly Recommended. I Got Hired

Simple, easy and informative.

I ended up siting down and listening to this book in one evening. I realised that I was doing pretty much everything wrong, from by 8 page resume to my interview technique. I’ve got back through and listened to each section as I’ve applied for a job……. And I got hired.

A solid guide

A lot of what is covered in this book isn’t new, but the book brings it all together in any easy to digest format. The “behind the scenes” bits are extra interesting for me as I haven’t had the experience of interviewing other people so have no idea what actually goes on.

Perfect for anyone lost in their career

I found this book really helpful. My problem is that I’m clearly in the wrong job.

The motivational maps tool was really useful in helping me work out what it is I actually want to do. I would recommend for anyone in a similar position to me.

Very good to excellent

This is a very good to excellent book, and a good audio version. In my next interview, I will try to use a number of the recommendations. My previous responses in other interviews have been long-winded compared to what he recommends. I think that reading this book in combination with one or more other books on this topic may be the best solution so you get a wider perspective on things.
