Author Biography - Patricia Scudamore

Patricia Scudamore and Hilton Catt have many years' experience of working in recruitment, enabling them to offer the perspective of both employer and candidate. They have written more than 25 books based on their experience of what it takes to make careers work in today's rapidly changing and uncertain world. They were among the first to embrace the idea of people taking on the job of managing their own careers rather than leaving it to employers to do the thinking for them. They have seen for themselves the richness and diversity of modern careers, and exploiting this richness and diversity to the full is one of the central themes in their work. They have written a number of other books in the Teach Yourself series. Visit their website at scudamorecatt.com and their blog site at patriciascudamorehiltoncatt.com
