How to win from the start – Your No 1 Career Guide

by David Royston-Lee

how to win

There are many books written on how to find a job or a career.

‘Career management’ is a subject we all talk about a lot, but few people actually work at properly. Most of us believe, particularly when there are ‘credit crunches’ and redundancies all around us, that we are just lucky to get any job.

And what do we do? The same old things everyone else does:

  • Looking and applying for job ads on the net – silence….
  • Going to recruiters – they never get back to me….

Yes it’s a difficult world if you follow the tried (or should I say tired) and trusted ways that everyone tells you to follow.

A Career management approach is a little different… and it’s simple… you need to answer three questions:

  • Who am I?
  • Where am I going?
  • How am I going to get there?

Most books on the job search forget the first question and concentrate on the easier, latter two: ‘where am I going’ and ‘how I am going to get there’. So in this book we concentrate much more on the ‘who I am’ so that we really can see our authentic selves, and more importantly, are able to identify and promote ourselves effectively.
