‘Time to get hired’ is a step-by-step booklet that helps you to understand what it takes to land a new job through alternative channels that applying as a response to a job ad. We will cover how to approach recruitment and employment agencies, how to use your network and how to submit unsolicited applications. Finally we will prepare you for the interview.

With this book we want to make it easier for you and help you find a new job as quickly as possible.

Being a jobseeker can be very stressful, because there are so many things you need to do. Most people approach the task in a fairly disorganised manner and just muddle through.

‘Time to get hired’ structures the process from start to finish, so that you approach job-hunting one step at a time.

The process is built up in such a way that once you have completed all of the steps, you’ll have done everything possible to plan your job hunt and you are then ready to find your job.

At each step, you will acquire the knowledge and tools you need to find a job.

The idea is to help you get off to a good start and the 4 steps to do so are:

  1. Step 1: Recruitment companies/employment agencies
  2. Step 2: How to use your network
  3. Step 3: Unsolicited applications
  4. Step 4: The interview – how to present yourself

Each step consists of an explanatory text that provides in-depth information and guidance on how to approach the task at hand.

Once you have studied the text, you’ll be all set to carry out each task in practice.
