Book Description

Did you know that “I hate my Job” gets searched on Google twelve thousand times a month?! 50% of those searches are from the US and 15% from the UK. That’s a lot of disillusioned employees who feel that their strongest skills and abilities are imprisoned in a dungeon somewhere back in the dark ages.

With the doom and gloom of the global economic downturn, the behaviour of some companies and employers has been deteriorating.

Nik and I are writing this book because we both, in our varied employment history, know what it’s like to work for such a company. But moreso, we have more and more damaged clients coming to us who are at the end of their tether because they put up with the crap for too long, and now they are beaten down and exhausted.

We’re taking the humorous approach here to make these issues easier to think about, and to inspire you with some confidence that if you feel stuck with the wrong company, you can unstick yourself with the right approach.

We wish you all the very best,
Nik and Nicole

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a great book! October 17, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was suggested to me so I grab a copy and read it. I am glad I did. Maybe my perspective is a little different but what I see is the author offering to help people find their purpose in life. It is a great book and I love the humor to illustrate points. I applaud Nik and Nicole for their work. They ask some really hard questions in this book in an attempt to wake up the reader in helping them find what it is that will fulfill them. Being serious here, while reading the book, the song, "Conviction of the Heart" by Kenny Loggins came to mind. This book and the song have a similar message. With Nik and Nicole, in order to discover the right company and right fit, you must look within to see what it is that will make you happy. I love the section that ask, "what dreams did you have,,,what is it that you wanted to do,,," To me, this book is about finding out who you are then finding a company that matches up with who you are. I am going out on a limb here and say that to me, this book is as much about self discovery as it is about finding the right job. And if you think about it, the two go hand in hand. For me, I am glad that this book was recommended to me. This is a really great book for those who are serious about getting where they want to be in the work place, thanks!

5.0 out of 5 stars Quick Guide for Career Advice October 16, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
In today's troubled economic times, it is easy to lose focus and accept below par working conditions as a price
one has to pay for a stable job. Many companies take an unfair advantage of it, and strive for the bottom line
without regard to employees' satisfaction.

This versatile little guide shows that one does not have to settle in order to have a satisfying job or career. By use
of questionnaire, authors help you identify your needs and in later chapters, they shows you how to find a
company that might be a good fit for you. I personally liked the stress that authors put on paying attention to
details, for example when you go for an interview, make sure to access working conditions, such as: daylight,
sunlight, desk sizes, air-conditioning and even what color the walls are painted. Nobody would want to work in a
grey, humid little room, the size of a prison cell, for 8 hours every day.

Finding a right company or trying re-launching your career is not easy. But with right attitude and tools that this
guide gives you, you at least stand a fighting chance.

Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great changing jobs career advice November 16, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
With the doom and gloom of our current global economic downturn, and companies taking advantage of their employees, this new book is a "Godsend". In today's world, employers treat their staff badly cos "they can", they hide behind bureaucratic jargon about getting the best from their staff and for some reason, are allowed to get away with it!

Our authors Nik and Nicole write with a humorous approach to make the issues easier to think about and hopefully see the light.

I loved the real life stories, I think everyone can relate to them quite easily.

The exercises to do on paper are excellent to get you in touch with your ladder of career needs too.

I recommend this E-book for those who
*feel there's a lack of recognition or doors are being closed on career advancement instead of being opened
*are experiencing training and/or supervisors frustrations
*discrimination issues.

Nik and Nicole recognize that choosing the right company to work for isn't easy as many factors need to be considered, like we need income to pay the rent etc., but the help you'll receive in this e-book will help you look after numero uno and be in a position where you are earning without being stressed all day and all night.

5.0 out of 5 stars an excellent read on career coaching November 15, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
As an owner of a recruitment business for the past 16 years, I can certainly relate to what the authors are saying in this book. On a daily basis my team gets calls from disgruntled employees looking to move on, frequently devoid of ideas as to where they want to go and what they want to do. This book provides a fantastic well researched guide on how to take control of your career. There's lots of practical guidance on how to look at your needs and wants and how best to address them. Employers should take note as well, they have to make the effort to retain their best staff or risk losing them and then facing the cost of recruiting replacements!

More About the Author

I started my career at Apple Computer. Hungry for career progress I completed a Distance Learning MBA at Henley. As most people will find at some stage in their lives though, making career progress has had its ups and downs. So far I have "enjoyed" redundancy 3 times. Each time I launched myself into how it could benefit me rather than getting too bogged down in the negative feelings of rejection and financial worry.

I learned a lot from my own career history through these experiences so I decided I would help other people to progress their careers, make career changes or get back into employment and help their job search. I re-qualified as a career coach and started careerjourney.co.uk.

Because not everyone likes to work with a coach I decided to write these books and make my methodology available to a wider audience.
