The Skills You Need Guide to Getting a Job
It is unfortunate, but getting qualifications is not an automatic passport to a life of gainful employment, or even a short-term job. And even once you have a job, there is no guarantee that you will keep it. The COVID-19 pandemic has had a major impact on employment, and it seems likely that large numbers of people may be looking for work in the next few years. Couple this with the changes expected from the growth in the use of artificial intelligence, and we can expect to see huge changes in the job market in the future.
This revised edition of this Skills You Need guide takes you through the whole process of finding a job. It starts by explaining the nature of skills, and moves on to help you identify what you can offer to employers, before considering the process of identifying and then applying for a job and attending interviews remotely or in person. It also shows you how to avoid putting off potential employers, by making sure that your digital profile is as suitable as your CV or résumé.
This is a book which no potential job-seeker can afford to be without.

Our eBooks - No Nonsense Sales Policy
Forget everything you know (or have found out) about internet marketing tactics. We’re determined to be up front and honest with you.
You won’t find the usual pages of ‘hard-sell’ nonsense here. Our four selling principles are simple:
Most of the information in our eBooks is freely available on the website.
We believe the information we publish should be freely available to everybody, and it is – just browse our pages. We do, however, understand that, for convenience, it may be easier to get an eBook (like it may be more convenient to eat in a restaurant than cook your own meal). The convenience of an eBook means that you can print it, search it, read it on your kindle, tablet, laptop, smart-phone or other gadget while sitting on the beach or at the top of a mountain far away from any Wi-Fi, 4G or other networks.
The content in our eBooks is a little different from the website content. Our eBooks read more like a book (than a series of webpages) and there are no advertisements; they also contain some extra information.
Our eBooks have been professionally designed and published and all have ISBN numbers.
Our prices are always a great deal.
There is no special deal ending at midnight tonight, no special incentives because you’re the 10,000th person to read this and absolutely no chance of winning an iPad. Regardless of whether you decide to buy an eBook or not, we’re not going to send you emails every day reminding you to join our ‘club’ or buy more stuff. You can of course subscribe to our newsletter if you choose to do so.
There are no hidden extras and all taxes are included in your purchase.
We’re not in this to make lots of money.
We’re not going to be calling the Mercedes Benz dealer or booking a six week holiday to the Seychelles because you bought one of our eBooks. All profits go back into SkillsYouNeed enabling us to create more quality content that you, and everybody else, will have free access to. Simple!
There is no ‘no quibble money back guarantee’ and you won’t need to remember to cancel anything after 30 days.
If you decide to buy one of our eBooks then you have done so because you have found our online content useful and would like to have a more convenient version of it. If you haven’t found our content useful and can see no advantage of buying an eBook then don’t!
