Finding the best job can be very tricky. The Job Search Formula by Nicole O'Driscoll is an excellent book to help job seekers find and land their ideal jobs. The book also offer an in depth analysis of why companies exist, what employers look for and what factors job hunters should consider when looking for a job.
I especially like the part about the tips on how job seekers can refine their CV and make it more appealing to hiring managers. The CV is indeed a very useful tool because hiring managers actually read this piece of paper to check the applicant's experience and other qualifications.
(Sauvine, Amazon reviewer)
The author systematically walks the reader through the thought process of looking at ourselves and realizing what we have to offer; looking at the job market and realizing what it requires; and showing how to match the two.
The employer's point of view and considerations while choosing among the job applicants is one of the more interesting points of this book, in my opinion. An average person has no clue what goes into that sort of thought process and yet it's one of the main components that goes into hiring an applicant.
Yet the strongest point of this book is to help us realize our own value. This is not just "You are the Best so Go Get It" sort of thing. There are practical pointers and advise on how to make sure your potential employer would realize your value as well.

This book not only serves people looking for a job but would serve employers too in reminding them of their purpose as an employer. I am going to be bold here and state that the level of compassion shown in this book reminds me of Tony Robbins. The sense of caring is on every page. I could go as far as to say this book is a guide on how to live an quality life with direction and purpose. I know this book will be one that I will refer to time and time again in the future, it is that good, a quality reference book that is more than just getting a job, it's a reference book to living an quality life that even Tony Robbins and Wayne Dyer would be proud of, Thank you for a "gem" of a book, I feel fortunate to have found it. Thank you Nicole!

Writing Funding Applications
"Nicole developed a funding proposal for a specific grant-making organisation to raise money for Send A Cow's work in Uganda. I found Nicole to be very committed and reliable, and appreciated her suggestion that we meet to discuss the proposal. She grasped the concept of the project very quicky and took time to really understand what we were trying to achieve. Communication by telephone and email was excellent and Nicole has a very good writing style and a nice turn of phrase. She was also very willing to discuss the proposal and to make recommended revisions, delivering the finished document in good time. I found her very helpful and a pleasure to work with."
