About the Author
Toby Marshall was the director of a recruitment firm for fifteen years before founding his own marketing company, Lead Creation Pty Ltd in 2009. His first book 'Get a better job: Your roadmap to career success/Get great people: Your roadmap to hiring the best' was an Amazon no. 1 seller. His recruitment advice in that book, both for those looking to improve their careers and those looking to hire the best, was called "Easy to read, practical career advice" by Melanie Laing, Asia Pacific Director HR, Unisys. It was also called "Innovative and insightful - a great resource for up and coming professionals to boost their career" by Tim Dein, President NSW AHRI Council (Australian Human Resources Institute). Toby has filled his latest book: 'Landing your dream job: Start your career ahead of the competition' with the wealth of recruitment knowledge he gained while working in the industry. Acting as the Director of Abacus Recruitment Solutions, Toby learnt exactly what employers look for in potential job candidates. He's chosen to pass this information on to young people in his new book, to help them progress in the right direction toward landing their dream job. Toby also has experience working with and advising young people. As the Principal of the marketing company, Lead Creation, Toby and his team consistently recruits and hires university undergraduates and interns. His business helps them develop expertise and knowledge in online marketing strategies for small businesses, targeting their niche markets to attract attention from both existing and prospective clients. It also allows them to gain valuable corporate experience whilst still attending university. This makes them highly attractive to potential employers once they graduate. Toby isn't a distant 'seagull manager'-he works with young people on a daily business, so he knows what they're looking for in terms of career advice. A team of young writers and recruiters also contributed their writing skills, energy and stories to 'Landing your dream job: Start your career ahead of the competition'. Due to this, the guide really speaks to students in a fresh and practical way that's easy to understand and apply.
