Are you selling yourself effectively?  

 If you are an aspiring manager, leader or professional and have been looking for a new role, you may have felt like this:

  • Not sure how to make your CV or application stand out
  • Uncertain of how to promote your skills  or what exactly they are in the first place
  • Frustrated at missing out on a role (or not even getting an email) somewhere in the application process
  • Anxious or nervous about presenting at an interview
  • Puzzled by LinkedIn and how you can use it the best to find work and market yourself 
  • That it's time to get serious about your career and finding the work that really fits you
