Product description

Job hunting. It's time consuming, it's hard work and it's very stressful. What kind of job do I really want? Where should I start looking? Is my CV up to scratch? Do I need to go to a recruitment agency or should I apply direct? Where are the jobs in that sector advertised? Which are the best online jobsites? How do I make sure I do well in the interview when I finally get one? And how do I cope if I don't? This is the no waffle, no fuss guide for the smart job hunter. It's a complete start-to-finish manual, from writing your CV, to where to look for jobs, interview techniques and how to negotiate a job offer. It covers all elements of job hunting in practical detail in one concise informative guide, and provides a straightforward and honest look at the recruitment market in the UK.
