The book is organised in such a way as to help readers commit to following a 30-day challenge, focussing on just one topic per day.
Checking out your internet presence, using social media sites to stand out from the crowd, learning to write a CV and how to behave in a job interview are just some of the tasks we address on each of the 30 days of this challenge.
An interesting innovation for this book is the website that accompanies it. At the end of each chapter there is a link that will take the reader to the “Visual chapters” section of the site www.job30days.com, where you will find images to help clarify the instructions in the book: http://job30days.com/visual-chapters.
Be under no illusion, employers receiving your CV will type your name and email address into search engines like Google and if they find nothing interesting about you, but do find loads of fascinating information about other candidates applying for the same vacancy, who do you think will have the upper hand in those vital first few seconds of looking at CVs?
So… there is no point in sending your CV to companies before you have a strong and coherent presence on the Internet.
So how is this book organised?
It is laid out so you can work on one topic per day.
Check your web presence, create a profile on the professional network LinkedIn, use Facebook to stand out from the crowd, learn to write a CV, develop strategies to avoid secretaries on the phone and how to behave in a job interview. These are just a few of the things I’ll be covering in the 30 days of the challenge.
The book “How to find a job in 30 days” also has this website www.job30days.com, where you can access up-to-date information and find resources to help you organise your contacts list and download attractive CV models, among other things. All the information is regularly updated on the site and on social media.
At the end of each day of the challenge, you will find a link to a practical webpage dealing with the topic of the chapter you have just read. Each page on the site has instructions with images which complement the text, making what is in the book more visual and easier to follow.
