Get Companies Chasing You
As a Global Career Coach I can tell you… You get hired for ONE reason. The company has a problem(s) and they want you to solve it! I work by helping you show a company just how you do that! This book is for you if:
• You are a job seeker
• You have got that great job and still want companies chasing you!
All of the services I offer are built by living and breathing this concept, so if you don’t see this as the right strategy for you, basically stop reading now! This is what I stand for and what makes me different from other career coaches! I actively believe every job seeker, freelancer, and employee needs to harness their own power by:
1. BREAKING DOWN THE FOUR WALLS & GETTING COMPANIES CHASING YOU!
Unless your reputation transcends the four walls where you work; you’re always going to be stuck back at square one when you next want to get hired! Break the cycle and build the ‘like, know, trust factor’ before you even get to that stage!
2. TREATING YOURSELF AS A BUSINESS
Recognise that you only get hired for one reason >> You solve an employer’s problem. Treat yourself as a business and create your Resume/CV and LinkedIn profile with this in mind!
3. THE MONEY IS IN YOUR MESSAGE!
End the vanilla status and stop the carbon copy. It’s time to become real and stop that nonsensical paraphrasing on your longwinded CV/Resume. Say goodbye to boring buzz words, writing that you are “a forward-thinking, hands-on, think out of the box employee” won’t get you anywhere. Let’s stop sending the Hiring Manager to sleep!
4. CREATING A JOB SEARCH STRATEGY & BINNING THE AD HOC APPROACH
Wouldn’t it be nice if you knew exactly what you needed to do every single day in order to get hired and build a 2-way funnel where interested companies are seeking you out? Well, you can. Learning via trial and error won’t help – you need to do this properly.
No job is for life these days, so how are you protecting yourself from redundancy?
Branding and positioning yourself is key!
Ready to dive deeper, grab yourself a coffee and let’s go from here…

I wrote my first book to be aimed at graduates, it was a learning curve that I underwent and I swore that I would never write again but I seem to have a short memory. My most recent book Get companies chasing you I wrote in response to continually seeing people making the same mistakes repeatedly, yet being frustrated by the fact that they weren’t able to get a job. Ultimately the book is aimed at someone who is looking for the next position or someone who has a great job but who is always looking for the next opportunity. It is a new way of thinking about jobs and being recruited, it goes against the traditional model of sending in a CV and focuses instead on identifying the hirer manager, writing them a ‘show and tell’ letter and send it via post as opposed to email. This makes you visible, it is taking over ownership rather than giving away ownership completely. By constantly making yourself visible you are also helping to protect yourself against redundancy which is a reality of the modern workforce. You should not focus on what people may think or let this stop you from trying something different.
