Pitch Up! with the Daily Express
I was recently interviewed by the Daily Express and the article appeared on March 29th. The article was aimed at a growing sector of the workforce - the over 50s - and featured advice my my new book Pitch Up! about how to manage the application process and present the right image at interview.
Paul Boross, author of Pitch Up!: Pitch Yourself For The Job Of Your Dreams (£7.99, amazon.co.uk) agrees: “It’s far better to write 10 good-quality applications than have a scatter-gun approach and apply for 200. Every application you fill out should take time. Write it once and then rewrite and edit it before asking somebody to look it over.”
Every time you apply for a job you should produce a tailor-made version of your CV.
“Sites such as Linkedin.com allow you to list your skills and recent employment history," says Paul. “Do check your security settings on other social media sites such as Facebook. Those pictures of you dancing on the tables may be funny but they don’t give out the right impression to a potential boss.”
