Biography

Having worked closely with job seekers of all nationalities and disciplines it continues to fascinate me that otherwise bright people don't put the work in to prepare themselves for the jobs market in general and job interviews in particular. This is why an awful lot of good people get rejected and (exaggerating to make the point) a lot of awful people get hired. Admittedly, they are not well served by much of the literature on the subject and this is my attempt to redress the balance. My unique but simple approach has worked well for my clients and, providing you do your prep, it will work well for you too.
