Excerpt from the foreword written by Kate Southam (former editor of
‘Dawn provides marketing tips (you are the product),writing tips (including words that get a job applicant noticed) as well as her insider's view of the little slip-ups that could see your application ‘binned’. There are also some great tips on tackling the real-life problems no one likes to talk about. For example, tips for how a 40-plus candidate can get by a young recruiter as well as how candidates of all ages can conquer pre-interview butterflies.

I know from my conversations with Dawn how genuine she is about helping people. This book is a real tribute to her years of doing just that! Use the book to ensure you actually enjoy the process of job hunting. Remember, job hunting is a two-way street — it's not just about what the employer wants but what you want. By being as prepared and confident as you can be, it will help you be more open to what employers are telling/selling you. At the end of the day, you need to judge each job role on how well it meets your very own selection criteria.
Best wishes for the job hunt.
Kate Southam.
