Take Control of Your Career

If your job meaningful and stimulating? John will reveal the secrets of taking control of your career and working life. Just as companies need to re-brand to stay alive and thrive, so do people. Today's marketplace demands a new mindset. Job seekers need to know how to sell themselves and how to take control of their working life.

"The world of work has become over pressurised - long hours, demanding cultures, organisations restructuring every year, and now the added factor of job insecurity has put many people on the wrong foot. All these factors make it essential that job seekers learn that taking control is essential - before someone else does," comments John.

6 Steps to Landing a Great Job

At a time of increasing redundancies and a tighter/fewer jobs market, there's never been a more pertinent time for people to learn how to think differently about their job search and strategy. To get a job you'll love you need to get short-listed for an exciting role that matches as close as possible what you will love doing! To get a job you'll love you need to have identified your chosen field of work, link it to your passion, purpose and meaning, and then concentrate your message for the right organisations that answers a simple question - "Why YOU?" Everything you do for yourself when seeking a job - from the CV, to the covering letter, interview preparation and the interview itself should bear in mind the WHY YOU? factor.
