Break Through The Barriers of Redundancy Book Blog Tour Begins!


BREAK THROUGH THE BARRIERS OF REDUNDANCY BLOG BOOK TOUR BEGINS

For those of you who haven’t heard, I am now a published Author.

A gigantic Shout Out of thanks to Al Forbes from http://kattermonran.com for being the first blog stop on my Blog Book Tour, it’s much appreciated.

This book is different to any other redundancy or job-seeking book on the market, because it takes a holistic view of redundancy that is about how to deal with the initial grief and depression that comes with redundancy, and use redundancy as an opportunity for reflection and a time to go back to the roots of who you are and what you were born to do, before all of the ‘noise’ of life got in the way, such as marriage, kids, and mortgage; to discover your dream job and lifestyle, and help you to get it. It also explains how to deal with the practicalities of job-hunting, CV and cover letter writing, and how to answer tough interview questions. It also has a whole chapter devoted to discovering if self-employment would be right for you!

BOOK CONTENT REVEALED

Here is my Break Through The Barriers Of Redundancy Free Chapter Giveaway:

CHAPTER 1

INTRODUCTION
In a nutshell, this book is a complete A-Z system for getting back into work; and a comprehensive guide about how you can recover from the devastating effects of redundancy, and seize this moment as an opportunity to fulfil your dreams.

Within these pages that follow, you will uncover your own antidote to beat redundancy blues. By the time you are through with reading this book, you will have learnt how to tackle the grief of losing your job, head on. You will have gone back to your roots, reconnected with your inner being, be able to love yourself knowing your weaknesses and strengths and have learnt how to make use of your best asset in getting back into work, that is you. You will have given yourself time and breathing space to think about what it is that you really want to do with your life, what you want your dream job to be, and be able to create a plan of action that you can follow through to enable you to get it. You will be able to assess if self-employment is right for you. You will be a master of creating an outstanding CV and cover letter that will get you more interviews, and in an interview you will have more confidence in your abilities. You will be able to predict some of the difficult questions you may be asked, and know how to answer them with conviction. You will provide extra reasons for the interviewer to appoint you for the position over other candidates, and you will know how to change any weaknesses into strengths. In addition to that, you will be clear in what you are saying, unquestionable in character, and able to transfer your previously gained skills and experience into the role for which you are applying, to benefit that company. Why wouldn’t they want to take you on?

Using a holistic approach, this book does not just focus on one element of redundancy, but on the many barriers you need to conquer if you are to successfully get back into work. By that, I don’t mean to learn just enough to get a job. I mean to learn how to deal with the inner trauma and turmoil of being made redundant (health and wellbeing skills), before focusing on the practical elements such as job skills, and deciding on your future path.

Although there are many overlaps between the content of chapters, for ease of understanding as to how this book treats you holistically, it can be split into 5 components of redundancy, with their related chapters titles.

1. The inner elements (Care for the inner you)
Wellbeing:
• A is for Antidote to beat redundancy blues
• F is for Fun
• L is for Love Yourself
• R is for Rejuvenate,
• Z is for Zebra
Mindset and attitude:
• J is for Job-hunting
• K is for Keep
• P is for Persistence
2. Practicalities:
• B is for Breathing Space
• H is for Help
• I is for Interview
• Q is for Quit your job
• V is for Voluntary Work
• W is for Work Experience
3. Exploring options:
• D is for Dream Job
• O is for Opportunities
• S is for Self-employment
4. Outer elements (How others perceive you):
• C is for Confidence
• E is for Express Yourself Clearly
• G is for Great Customer Service begins at home
• M is for Marketing
• N is for Networking
• U is for Unquestionable
5. Persuasion Skills – An irresistible offer:
• T is for Transferable Skills
• X is for X-Ray (Xtra Reasons to Appoint You)
• Y is for Yes

Across its A-Z Chapters, this book will cover twenty-six aspects of redundancy:
1. Wellbeing.
2. Self-love.
3. Happiness.
4. Maintaining a high morale.
5. Making time for fun.
6. Developing the right attitude.
7. Getting help.
8. Taking back control.
9. Quitting your job.
10. Benefits.
11. Job-seeking.
12. Applying for jobs.
13. CVs.
14. Cover letters.
15. Dealing with rejections.
16. Job interviews.
17. Voluntary work.
18. Work experience.
19. Time management.
20. Record keeping.
21. Weaknesses and strengths.
22. Marketing.
23. Networking.
24. Opportunities.
25. Self-employment.
26. Dream job.

Each one of these aspects will be dealt with in such a way, that you will able to continue to tackle them yourself long after you have put this book down. Not only enabling you to adjust to your new situation, but to thrive on the opportunity to be able to create the future that you crave.

Whether you have been made redundant; are job-seeking, or looking to change career for whatever reason, this is THE book for you!
