65 pages56 minutes


Are you worried about job security or even looking for a job now? Are you considering a change or looking for an opportunity to progress? Whatever your situation, you'll want to give yourself the best possible chance to keep your existing job or get a new one.

Money isn't the whole story but it is important. Why not put yourself in a position to earn more, or at least give yourself options? Likewise, why not aim for a role offering true job satisfaction - don't you deserve it?

This crucial guide examines key themes necessary to beat the competition and land your dream job. Topics include:

How to search for the right job for you - not any old job: By considering and answering a short, targeted set of questions, it is possible to reflect and identify the type of role most suited to you. This is based on your skills, aspirations, industry sector and just as importantly, what isn't right for you.

Organise and structure your job searching using a proven system that works: Target a range of recommended sources - the best locations for job searching success. Develop the determination and discipline to search for work, as though this is your job.

The Professional Resume/CV; Forget old assumptions and techniques that everybody else uses. Instead, learn how to put together an exceptional resume/CV, uniquely tailored to what manufacturing and engineering businesses specifically need. Much of this is linked to the skills shortage.

Covering Letters: Often the poor relation to the resume/CV. Learn how to put together a knockout covering letter, that will not only make you stand head and shoulders above your competitors, but will also leave the recruiter wanting to find out more, via your resume/CV and interview.

The All Important Interview! Crucial information to help you prepare and succeed in interviews for technical and engineering positions. Get organised, understand and prep for the techniques routinely used by technical recruiters.

How to Find Your Ideal Engineering Job works because it's based on what employers want. It is a no-nonsense manual written for practical application by technical people eager to find fulfilling, well paid positions.
