I receive a lot of invitations via LinkedIn to connect up with people. It’s mostly people I’ve never met. Some pundits will advise you to ignore them, but I’ve seen some good things come out of taking a quick look at a person and responding to them to enquire whether there is something with which I can help them.

There is an incredible amount of advice online about this subject, so I have tried to distil 5 simple principles which will help you whether you earn £12,000 or £120,000 per annum or you’re an artist or a banker. I am assuming that with the improvements in the job market you may well find at least one of these 5 points useful very soon! 

Interested in a marketing career?

It’s a much improved recruitment market as we enter 2014, but it still seems good jobs are hard to come by. In this session Frank will be exploring the breadth of opportunity that the marketing world can offer you and offers practical advice to ensure your career stays on the boil, not on the back burner.

It will be a high energy session with plenty of time for interaction and live, practical questions to ensure everyone comes away with something of value to help them, whatever your level or the stage of your career.

There has been a lot written about how to handle an interview, but I always find that doing the simple things is always the best advice. You have clearly already impressed the company with your initial approach and CV so now is the time to really prepare yourself to make the most of your opportunity.

You'll recall the previous post in this series, where I suggested that the business of finding a job is such a challenge that it is not one  you should face alone.

The potential for finding friends or colleagues for mutual encouragement or to provide a sounding board for you, is a real practical way of sustaining yourself through the process.

For many of us the thought of an interview is something akin to a visit to the Principal's office. Whatever the reason and whatever the circumstance we still quake a little internally, if not externally.

I'm a bit concerned that my opening section and my choice of photo on my recent Cover Letter post may have misled some people to believe I was advocating sending hard copies of CVs with cover letters to prospective employers and recruitment consultants.

When was the last time you wrote a ‘letter’ to accompany a CV? It probably begs another question: when did you last send a hard copy of your CV either as a speculative introduction or in response to an advertisement.

You don't need to try hard to find information online offering to help you create the perfect CV, the one that will secure you the job you want. Or one that will ensure you are being interviewed every time you apply. Some of these will help you for a 'small' price if you download their guide/template.
