The CV Book, The Interview Book and Brilliant Cover Letters
18 Aug 09

The economic crisis has seen over two million people struggling to find work. This summer brings an additional 350,000 eager graduates, fresh out of university, adding to the competition for jobs.[1] Now, more than ever, job seekers, no matter their age, background, job or level of experience need to be able to stand out from the masses.

Help is at hand from top career expert James Innes, Founder and Managing Director of The CV Centre, the UK’s leading CV consultancy. Through his three new books The CV Book, The Interview Book and Brilliant Cover Letters James uses his experience and expertise to show job hunters how to stand out from the crowd and start the career they want.

Employers will have hundreds, sometimes even thousands, of aspiring CVs landing on their desk. Every CV has just 30 seconds to win over its reader and get an interview.  Drawing on years of experience and research The CV Book will ensure an exceptional CV every time. Step by step it shows its readers how to build their CV, illustrating how to recognise and avoid fifteen common mistakes and how to give their profile that little extra something to make it shine and stand out.

But to get a CV under the eyes of an employer, it has to be accompanied by an outstanding cover letter to guide it there. Brilliant Cover Letters readers will learn how to produce an exceptional cover letter that catches a recruiter’s eye no matter what job or industry is being applied to. With years of experience and tried and tested strategies readers will be able to create a powerful cover letter that well and truly gets their foot in the door.

The recruiter’s interest has been sparked, they like the applicant and they haven’t even met them yet. Now the hard part, the applicant has to show their potential employer that they really are just as great in person as they are on paper - no pressure then! The Interview Book can show readers how to overcome nerves, be prepared for difficult questions and a range of scenarios from group interviews to assessments. And most importantly, how to walk into and out of every interview filled with confidence.

Every job applicant has a unique personality, different employment experiences and widely different career aspirations. To reflect this there is a vast collection of free online content to accompany each book. From a range of industry and job specific CV and Cover letter templates to Interview Q&As and interactive interview tools. With an online blog and forums for readers to ask questions and discuss their experience with other readers and staff; readers will never be alone in their search for the perfect job.

So whether they are fresh out of education, recently made redundant, struggling to find a job or simply want a career change these definitive books will ensure applicants stand out and achieve career success!
