Amazon Customer Review
interesting and important!, 13 July, 2001
Reviewer: James M Walton (firstname.lastname@example.org) from Appleby, Cumbria,
After showing a career interest in science I was lucky enough
to see a copy of this book. I have since looked at others in a
similar vein and nothing comes close. It has given me the ambition
to seek a role in the pharmaceutical industry when I graduate.
Anyone wanting a qualified insight into the workings of medical
and clinical practices for the future of patient welfare should
look no further.
The Perfect CV
Tom Jackson, Ellen Jackson
This updated edition provides strategies for dealing with the
shift away from "good, steady jobs for life" to an era
of temporary, freelance and consultancy positions, where employers
are more interested in a candidate's skills than in his or her
experience. It shows how to prepare a capabilities portfolio,
which focuses on talents rather than the number of jobs; discover
and define career goals; pinpoint the most suitable jobs, and
how to use the Internet and electronic job searches.
7 Habits of Highly Effective People
Stephen R. Covey
According to Steven R. Covey, to live with security and wisdom,
and to have the power to take advantages of the opportunities
that change creates, we need fairness, integrity, honesty and
human dignity. Quite a tall order when you consider that most
of us live our lives in a permanent state of flux, questioning
our ideals and values and fighting a daily battle with the lack
of self-confidence that stops us from taking risks of any kind.
But, in The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, Covey manages
to make it sound as if changing the way we look at ourselves and
the world around us so that we can become more successful both
personally and professionally an absolute doddle. He defines the "habits" as "the intersection of knowledge, skill
and desire" and states that the "Seven Habits" of the title are not mutually exclusive, but rather when developed
together help to form a well-rounded, sensitive, confident and
effective human being.
The "What Color Is Your Parachute" Workbook
Richard Nelson Bolles
For three decades Richard Nelson Bolles's annually updated and
revised Parachute has been cheerfully advising people that the
best way to find a job or make a career change isn't to answer
a job ad and/or send in a CV. That way, the statistical odds are
heavily stacked against success. Instead he advocates a creative
three-pronged approach. You are in charge so be proactive and
sell yourself. First identify your talents (and of course you've
got lots). Then work out where you would like to apply these transferable
skills. Lastly, decide how you will pursue organisations which
interest you. Thereafter it's down to your efforts: "Successful
job hunting is a learned skill. You have to study it. You have
to practice it. You have to master it, just like any new skill.
And master it thoroughly because you'll need it all the rest of
your life", says Bolles.
