This book is a careers bible fit for today's job market, with exclusive advice and guidance from some of the biggest names in British business.
No matter what stage of life one is at, whether a school leaver, university graduate or job changer, finding the right career to suit one's skills and characteristics has never been more challenging. The amount of choice and information can be daunting. Most of us only have a vague idea of what careers really entail on a day-to-day basis and yet that information could steer one towards - or away - from a job or university course.
In this book Lucy Tobin has compiled an inspirational guide to the most popular jobs and careers in the UK, giving the inside scoop on what these jobs are really like day-to-day, what skills recruiters are really looking for and what courses to study to get your foot in the door.
Jobs covered include: banker, actuary, publisher, fashion designer, barrister, zookeeper, chef, TV presenter, actor, journalist, civil servant, app developer, architect, engineer and psychologist.
Lucy's journalistic approach, together with exclusive interviews with chef Antonio Carluccio, designer Kelly Hoppen, Dragon Den's James Caan, astronaut Tim Peake, footballer Michael Owen, author Tracy Chevalier and entrepreneur Jamal Edwards makes The Book of Jobs the careers guide to trust at every stage of life.
