How to find your dream job

Would you like to increase your chance of getting job interviews?

Would you like to make sure the person hiring for your dream job notices you?

Would you like to gain the confidence to go after the job you want, rather than applying for the jobs that are there?

Let me tell you a story. I had a job that was draining the life out of me. I dragged myself to work every day with a heavy heart and a sense of vague dread. I wasn’t doing anything worthwhile; I wasn’t appreciated; and nobody listened to me and my colleagues. We were going through the motions.

Something had to give.

One day, I simply stood up and left. I handed in my notice and walked away. I had nothing to go to; nobody to bail me out. I had no choice but to make my own future.

So I decided to go it alone. I knew nobody was going to knock on my door and hand me a living; I had to make this work myself.

I sat down and made a plan. I decided which companies I wanted to write for, then I went out and convinced them to let me write. One by one, they invited me on board. One by one, they became loyal clients – and told their friends.

So how did I do this?

I studied them, their wants and needs. Then I marketed myself to them. I sold my skills, experience and expertise. I used my ability to put people at ease and help them achieve their goals.

It was the best thing I ever did. I’m running my own successful business – and I love it, every single day. I’m finding the clients I want to work with. I’m living the lifestyle I want to live. And I want to help you do the same.

Of course, I don’t recommend getting to breaking point and leaving with nothing to go to; that’s why I’m offering you this opportunity. You can learn in one day what I learned the hard way: how to look for and find the jobs you really want. How to make yourself irresistible to the people who are hiring. And how to increase your chance of getting that crucial interview.

Beat the competition: get noticed

You and I know what the job market is like. It’s never been more competitive. There have never been so many people going for the same job.

It’s daunting, right? Of course it is.

But you can make that work in your favour.

Most job applications are dull. Ineffective. Unnoticed. They’re written by people who don’t realise they have to be salesmen to get the job they want. By people who may well be perfect for the job – but who will never get a foot in the door because nobody ever sees them. They bore their readers – the people doing the hiring.

Don’t let that be you. You’re better than that.

You can stand out from the crowd. You can plan your job search like a marketing campaign – then market yourself brilliantly. I can show you how – in just one day.

I can show you how to sell yourself – because that’s what you have to do if you want that great job.

Show prospective employers you’re outstanding

Wherever you are in the work world, take control of your career. Perhaps you’re graduating soon and need to start looking for work. Or maybe you want a career change. Or perhaps you’ve decided to finally go after that dream job you’ve always wanted.

Don’t you want to give yourself the best possible chance of achieving what you want?

You could earn more money, reduce your commute time, or simply have more fun every day. But only if you make the decision to grab any opportunities with both hands.

You spend most of your life at work. Don’t settle for ‘adequate’. Decide what you want, then go after it.

But first, you need to have a plan.

And that’s where I come in. I can help you with all aspects of your job search – right up to the interview. Then it’s up to you, but you’ll be better prepared than most.

Hints, tips and guidance – from job search to interview

So, what will you learn on this one-day workshop? I’ll take you through the entire pre-interview process, from planning your job search, tailoring your CV and LinkedIn profile, and writing a killer cover letter.

  • Introduction: changing the way you think about job hunting
  • Planning your search – then doing it
  • Build and tailor a great CV
  • LinkedIn: writing your profile and building a network
  • Clean up your social media act, and use online networks to your advantage
  • Write a stonking cover letter that prospective employers will NOT be able to ignore

I want you to leave my course with a set of working documents and profiles that you can use in your search for your dream job. You’ll go home able to tailor everything you do to each job you apply for. And you’ll have a much better idea of what you want to do, where, and for whom.

And if you don’t quite finish all your documents on the day, you can send me your drafts for feedback afterwards. I’ll comment, make suggestions and help you get it just right.

Take that first step towards success now

Quite frankly, this workshop isn’t for everyone. It’s not for people looking for a magic ingredient that will guarantee they get an interview every time. It’s not for those applying for every job in sight, no matter what it is. Nor is it for people who are waiting for the perfect job to knock on their door.

It’s for people who are willing to put in time and effort to get that great job. People who are willing to change the way they think about job-hunting. People like you.

The Chinese philosopher Laozi once said: “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”

Most people never get what they really want because they never get started. They never take the first step.

Make this your first step to a rewarding career.

Book today, and learn how to sell your talents

You’re a skilled, talented person. Wherever you are on the career ladder, you’ve worked hard to get there. You have a lot to offer the right company – and they have a lot to offer you. But you have to get their attention and then convince them you’re the right person.

That’s worth investing in, isn’t it?

With so much competition, you have to work harder – and smarter – to get the job you want. You have to market yourself. You have to SELL your talents.

I can show you how.

I win my clients by approaching them. I sell myself and my skills, and they stick with me. I’m no smarter than you. I don’t work all the hours in the day. I simply use tried-and-tested techniques – and I study people. Now I want to share that with you. You can use the same skills to get the job you want. It’s not rocket science; it’s a new way of thinking.
