    I bought this book as I decided to take a leap and left a job that I had been in for 17 years. This book gave me an insight into todays working environment and helped me to prepare for finding and security a new role . I would highly recommend this book and also the 1 to 1 interview preparation.

    Sinéad is the most knowledgeable, experienced and top-class career consultants I’ve ever come across. Hearing her segments on radio and her down-to-earth style is so refreshing when you are navigating the job market.

    This is completely echoed in the book, where every possible question you might have on job and interview preparation is answered simply, but clearly. It lays out step-by-step what you need to do and enables you to take control of your job search and ideal career. I only hope she intends on writing more as her insights are so brilliant, you’ll wish you had heard about her earlier in your career! Thanks Sinéad 🙂

    Just bought the book and have already transformed my CV from a drab enough list of duties to a list of impressive looking list of achievements. I’m now in full interview preparation mode and this book has given me the focus I needed.

    I would highly recommend investing in this book. I had been struggling with getting called for an interview and with the interview itself. As a result I created a new cv and was much better prepared for the interview. And I got a new job as a result!

  13. Amazon review

    I am in debt to this book and its author. My own story – after working in the same job / career for 15 years, and very much in the need of a change, confidence was low. I turned to this book, and it has to be one of the best decisions I have ever made – it has put my career on a completely different trajectory.

    There are techniques and advice for absolutely ever scenario, and I first used the approach outlined by the author to get my CV in order (adhering to the specific CV Rules set about for my own personal circumstances). It worked unbelievably well – I applied for four different roles with four different companies and was invited to interview for all four of them.

    I hadn’t sat an interview in over 15 years, but there was so much in the book preparing you for the various different types and trends of interview these days – Skype / Group / Technical / Whiteboard, with the clear, unambiguous advice – it prep’d me so well for every possible encounter.

    In summary, after some second round interviews, I can tell you now I was offered all four positions in four different companies – confidence was now through the roof! So I took my time, chose the right position for me, negotiated a little on salary 😉 and I’ve never looked back.

    As I said at the start, I am in debt to this little book and was compelled to write this review – stars x 5.

    A great read, this book gave me a really interesting insight into the psychology behind the hiring process. The structure the book follows makes for a good page-turner and really helped me change my approach for an upcoming interview
