Many baby boomers are seeking to stay in the workforce longer and are looking for satisfying, fulfilling jobs. This book is a step-by-step guide to finding and winning the sort of job most likely to give job satisfaction and success.

It encourages people to adopt a pro-active, ‘self-employed’ approach, building self-esteem and promoting a time-efficient, self-managed job search program, and explains the importance of: concentrating on no more than two or three job leads at any one time, using proven marketing techniques to win good jobs, writing resumes that grab the employer’s interest in the first few sentences, finding jobs before they are advertised, building an effective job search network, using social media to support the job search, maintaining a positive self-image, effective preparation for the job interview.

Employment Today – Review, May 2015
“This is such a good book with so much material packed into the pages that it is hard for me to do it proper justice in a short review … well worth a look.”


 

New Zealand Quarrying and Mining Magazine – Review, March 2015
“A practical guide designed especially for job seekers over 50, and encourages readers to become proactive, guiding readers step-by-step through how to write an impeccable resume that will grab an employer’s attention.”


GrownUps Blog – Review, March 2015
“Rupert believes that employers look for three things: firstly the motivation to do the job well, the ability to fit into the existing team and the skills required to do the job. Believe it or not, the skills are often the last things they are looking at.”


Deals on Wheels – Review, March 2015
“The book hybrids Australian and New Zealand examples together and allows the reader to be led in a step-by-step manner through the whole job seeking/ personal marketing experience … it doesn’t have that brash feel of similar books written for North American audiences … certainly a reference guide that I will be keeping on my bookshelf.”


Forward 50 – Review, March 2015
“By following French’s practical tips, job seekers will be able to take control of their job-hunting experience. They’ll also feel more positive as they learn how to network and use social media effectively in order to bring themselves to the attention of potential employers.”
