Life Planning and JobSearch Tips wanted


It's over a decade since I wrote my first book for Life Planners & Job Searchers - 'I Can Do That' (inspired by Yosser Hughes - 'gis a job...!). My latest: '3 Easy Steps to the Job You Want', was published in 2000. At the time I tried to make it 'cutting edge' with its tips on emails, internet recruitment and contributions from Monster. I'm now working on a new edition, and would like it to be as 'fresh' and up to date as possible.

The book, is a self-development manual, which leads readers through exercises to help them to to decide / plan the life they want. Having done this, it offers practical advice on how to get work / a job, in the context of their life goals.

In addition to existing content, current / emerging themes that I'll be covering include:

E - jobsearching and applications

On-line psychometric testing

Portfolio careers

European / international perspective

Redundancy - know your rights

Supplementing your income / pension - Ebay etc!

50+ Over a third of the population & growing - employment prospects / deferred retirement

Your rights as an employee - The human rights act, the disability discrimination act and the equality bill etc

I'd greatly appreciate snippets / comments / ideas / tips / websites from fellow networkers. Whether it's a simple tip on how to write a winning CV, a horror story of 'how not to get a job' !, or a specialised contribution for a minority group, that I may have overlooked.

Sincere thanks in advance.

Kind regards

Malcolm Hornby

    Hi Malcolm

    Recently I read the above title by Sheryle Moon who self publishes in Australia.

    Her title discusses not just planning your life … which most of us do badly, if at all .., but to plan within Life’s Seven Elements ie,

    Career, health, personal environment, recreation, relationships, self, and wealth.

    While I’ve done plenty of business strategic and operational planning, it occurred to me that I hadn’t planned my life … not really planned it … most things had just happened as I filled in the days and nights.

    Her book is so good I bought copies for 50 staff and both of my adult children.

    It sounds just like the type of stuff that would nicely complement your work.

    If you’d like Sheryle Moon’s contact details, please email me. (I don’t get a commission for sales but believe the book has great value in helping people lead fulfilling lives)
