Description - Your Job Search Made Easy by Mark Parkinson
Job-hunting can be a daunting business, but it is also one in which persistence and preparation can pay great dividends. This handbook is designed for job-hunters of all types and deals with every aspect of the job-search process, from advert to interview. Advice on making an application is followed by guidance on passing psychometric tests - including sample tests to practice on - and what to expect at an assessment centre. Mark Parkinson, an occupational psychologist, also discusses how to get through the interview itself by revealing what recruiters are looking for in a candidate and how to combat interview stress. This edition is updated to include the impact of the Internet on job hunting.
