The presentation builds on the book that I did last year called You’re Hired! Job Hunting Online. So grab yourself a copy of that book if you haven’t got one yet.

Top tips for job hunting online: seven steps to your dream career

I have published a blog post on the Trotman website discussing my top tips for online job hunting.

This draws from our new book You’re Hired! Job Hunting Online.

We do pretty much everything online these days. Whether it is ordering take aways, watching Game of Throne or finding out what Kim Kardashian, we tend to go to Google and Facebook before we go anywhere else.

In our new book You’re Hired! Job Hunting Online we explain that finding a job or building your career is no different. If you are serious about finding the career that you want you need to get online. In the book we argue that there are seven steps to using the internet to get the career that you want.

Symposium on online practice in counselling and guidance – Open access version now available

A year or so ago I edited a symposium of the British Journal of Guidance and Counselling on online practice.

As part of this Stephen Goss and I wrote an editorial. I have just made this editorial available in an open access format through the University of Derby’s research archive.

This means that you can now download it for free.

cover

This morning we’ve just launched our new book. You can buy it from Amazon or ‘from all good book shop’. Just click on the link below.

You’re Hired! Job Hunting Online: The Complete Guide

I wrote the book with Jim Bright and David Winter and so you get the full benefit of our combined wisdom! Hopefully you’ll find it useful and interesting.

In the book we discuss how best to use the internet to build your career. The chapters take you through a systematic process designed to take you from an internet career novice to an expert online careerist!

It will cover:

  • Who to trust online
  • Getting to grips with LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and Google+
  • Effective online communication
  • Making an impact
  • Finding vacancies and other opportunities
  • How to embrace technology in recruitment practice

I’d be really interested to hear more from people about what they think about the book.

How the internet changed career – with added cats #cdaa15

slides

Tomorrow I’m going to be giving a presentation to the CDAA conference in Perth, Australia. I’ve been asked to talk about the internet and career. I’ve been thinking about this again a fair bit recently and am hoping to get a few more tech-related projects going again in the next few months. So it was a good opportunity to revisit some of the main ideas.

You will notice that there are a number of Warrior Cats references. You can blame my daughter for this. I’ll try and write another blog about it soon to clarify what it is all about.

So anyway, this is what I thought that I might say…

Symposium on online practice in guidance and counselling

The British Journal of Guidance and Counselling has just produced a new symposium looking at online practice in guidance and counselling. I was involved as an editor of the symposium. I think that it makes a really important contribution to thinking about how the internet reshapes practice in the fields of guidance and counselling.

It is well worth spending some time looking at some of these papers.
