From the Back Cover:

[Back cover]

 

"Clear, concise and compelling – Pitch Yourself drags the traditional CV kicking and screaming into the 21st century. It’s essential reading.”

Harvey Nash/FirstPersonGlobal

 

 "A CV revolution. It’s guaranteed to land you that interview.” Cosmopolitan

 

"Not only a way to live with competencies in recruitment but also a way for candidates to make the best of them in attempting to secure a job.”
Financial Times


"One of the best investments that you could make in your career progression."
Graham Hastie, London Business School

 

 

Pitch Yourself will transform the way you sell yourself. It’s a step-by-step practical guide that helps you work out what makes you different and develops this into your unique pitch – the basis of the best CV you’ll ever write and the best interview you’ll ever give.

 

Pitch Yourself shows you how to:

·         Answer the employer’s most important question “What do you offer us?”

  • Differentiate yourself at every step of the recruitment process, including the application stage, in order to get you short listed
  • Prioritise who you are and how you work - these are the qualities you are employed for
  • Prove you are the best person for the job by showcasing your benefit to your next employer
  • Move your focus from your past to your future performance, and from your perspective to your employer’s perspective, enabling you to speak their language
  • Get the job you really want

 

Pitch Yourself is internationally acclaimed and endorsed by many of the world’s leading universities and business schools. It talks the language of recruiters and employers  – and it’s proven to work.

 

 

[front flap]

 

“A straightforward, clear and concise read. Not only do you gain a true insight into your capabilities, but also you gain an effective format that will work for both you and your potential employer."

 London Evening Standard

 

“CVs are a two dimensional representation.... Pitch Yourself transforms this representation into a three dimensional, holistic person whom a recruiter can ‘see’ working within their organisation.”

Anna Keelan, Tanaka Business School, Imperial College, London, UK

 

“A truly unique way to differentiate oneself on a hiring manager's desk.”

Roxanne Hori,  MBA Director NW University, Kellogg School of Management, US

 

“.... written in a language employers understand... and is proven to work”

The Guardian

This is the book to show you how.The second edition incorporates feedback from the authors' global seminar and lecture program, meetings with careers advisors at these institutions as well as helping hundreds of people create their job winning CVs.
