This first chapter was devised based on experiences of running recruitment agencies in London. These tips and techniques were used to coach candidates before they went to interview. The results were outstanding. The candidates who followed these tips gained between 4 to 10 times more job offers than those who didn’t.

More interestingly, those candidates who refused to be coached, thinking they ‘knew it all’ and didn’t need the advice, were actually beaten to the job offer by less experienced candidates who followed the advice.



Devised by career coaches and recruitment experts, these Videos and Audio Clips comprise of advice on how to answer those tough questions along with specific examples of answers including:

What are your strengths? Describe your greatest failure? Why should we offer you the job? Why were you made redundant? Where do you want to be in 5 years? Describe your personality. Why do you want this job? How do you cope under pressure? How do you plan a project? What makes you different?

Most people have confidence issues on a regular basis – for some people they are fleeting problems, for others that may be more long-term. From successful celebrities to everyday workers, confidence can and does elude us at on certain occasions.

These videos will teach you step by step techniques to take your life to a whole new level.



The fear of public speaking is said to be even greater than the fear of death, yet mastering this skill can make the difference between success and failure in life. Those who learn to speak confidently tend to earn more money, are more popular and get what they want in life. You just have to look at Dragons Den to see the number of people who go away empty handed because they cannot present effectively! The good news is that public speaking is something that can be learned, and you can be great at it. These videos will help you to achieve a confident, self-assured public speaking persona.



An assessment centre is usually an all-day event (or longer) which forms part of the latter stages of a company’s recruitment procedure. Employers want to find out how you perform in different situations and devise activities / role plays to test you in various ways. Although they may seem like a way for assessors to get cheap laughs at your expense by putting you in embarrassing situations, they are actually used for several very valid reasons. They are less subjective, and don’t just cover the same ground in the same way as the first interview, while allowing the employer to find out about your ability to work with others.



It’s a great achievement to have graduated from university. But whether it’s an internship or a graduate job that you are after, the reality is that there are likely to be a lot of other smart people going for the same position. With recruiters increasingly saying that graduates, while having strong academic records, are weak on interviewing techniques, it’s never too early to start thinking about improving yourself in this area. We have assembled top recruiters and employers (KPMG, John Lewis, Centrica, Arriva and Connexions) to give you the inside track on what they are looking for at interview and the many mistakes they have witnessed.



Interviews at the executive level are simply more difficult than interviews for entry-level jobs. This is because the stakes are significantly higher. As an executive, you will be called upon to make a number of critical decisions. Therefore, you have to be able to work well under intense pressure.

When you reach the executive level, the competition for jobs is incredibly difficult. After all, there are an infinite number of executive positions available. Also, there are any number of MBAs who are ready and willing to fill any vacant positions.

Hopefully they will put a smile on your face during this time of transition, which is not a bad thing – life can be a bit too serious at times. So sit back, enjoy and have a bit of a giggle.



Your purpose is directly related to what you love. The most purposeful people in the world spend their time doing what they love. Bill Gates loves computers, Oprah loves helping, and Edison loved to invent. What do you love? Is it reading, writing, playing sports, singing, painting, business, selling, talking, listening, cooking, fixing broken things.

Whatever you love, it’s directly related to your purpose. This films shows you how to discover and live a life of purpose.



Being made redundant can be an incredibly traumatic experience. From suffering the gut wrenching feeling to being completely lost as to the way forward, can leave you with huge self esteem issues. This is a roadmap of exactly how to rebuild your life – practical wisdom on the subject of redundancy, its effects on people and significant ways to map out a route to a better future.

It offers clear and calm information on how to deal with the shock and emotions of sudden job loss, how to reassess finances and costs of living, how to use redundancy-enforced 'free time' to the best advantage and how to see the potential disaster of redundancy as a springboard to life changes and new opportunities.



The Public Sector is characterised by specialist work, people who stay in their roles a long time and people who are, generally speaking, unused to undergoing significant business and career change. Although it can initially feel like a lonely, daunting and scary prospect there are many things that people can do to start to help and prepare themselves for the future. Even if you feel your job is very specialised, with help, transferable skills and strengths can be identified, polished up and promoted. Additionally, weaker skilled areas (and we all have them) can be given the right focus, training and attention.
