I send out a regular newsletter, all start with an opening section, which can be personal, so I don’t always include this section on my blog. But the content is worth sharing, so read on …

Why you need to back up your LinkedIn profile

I wanted to let you know of substantial changes happening soon with LinkedIn. We don’t know when, so we need to be ready.
These 2 videos are excellent resources to talk you through the changes
Some features will be lost (5 we think) so here’s what I suggest you do

  1. Create a PDF of your report so you can refer to this information if you need to include it elsewhere. This will include your recommendations but not any multi-media content.

TO DO: Go to your profile and hover over the down arrow to the right of the blue View profile as button. Then select Save to PDF.
2: Request a free archive of your data. This will include a zip folder of all your contacts.
This is not always available so try again later if you get an error message. This will include a zip file of all your contacts.
TO DO: Go to Privacy & Settings; Getting an archive of your data; then click the blue Request archive button on the right.
3: Print a copy of your profile
You will then see all the images and other graphical components.

In the media

I’m not sure if I shared these with you before. I was featured in The Daily Mail, The Guardian, and helped with a campaign for Premier Inn on the importance of face to face meetings.

I’ve revised and got back on sale my online course – Start and Grow Your Own Business

I sometimes wonder about me … I took this and my Confidence eCourse off sale while my website was being updated and never got around to putting them back on sale. The confidence course will be back up in the new year, but if you are wondering about setting up a business this course might interest you.
Read more details here and then take advantage of my introductory offer, reduced by 35% from £47 to £30.55. Could be a great Christmas present? Or useful for you as you plan a more flexible career in 2017?

Client Feedback

It was a very good session; I can’t think of anything you could have done differently or better. Thanks, David

Surviving a Career Disaster

 Sometimes a job doesn’t work out but it doesn’t mean your next job will also be a career disaster.
I was asked to provide my expert comment for GQ Magazine on what Brian Clough should have done following being sacked as manager of Leeds United and after Paul Gambaccini was dropped by the BBC after historical allegations. You can read my suggestions in July’s edition of GQ Magazine (pages 164/5).
Read the article here: How To Survive A Career Disaster
The process of reviewing what we did and learning from it is something that can be beneficial for all of us. Let’s look at what can be helpful:

Review performance on a regular basis

 Ideally, we get constructive feedback from other people as soon as we start in a job, but that doesn’t happen for different reasons. Some bosses are so busy that they don’t even notice how we are doing our job they just wait to see the results. Other times the feedback is so subtle that we don’t pick it up. Or we hear the feedback and don’t agree, so we ignore it. But this rarely is this best approach.

Meet me on FaceBook

I’m still sharing interesting career related articles on my FaceBook page.
I personally review masses of career related articles and share the ones I think are of most interest.
If you visit my FaceBook page you can read them, and perhaps you may like to ‘Like’ my page?

How’s your love for your job?

I want you to love your job and be happy in your life. If your Sundays are full of dread for the week ahead or you realise you have been chasing the money or someone else’s dream, it’s time for us to talk. Feel free to get in touch to schedule your complimentary 15-minute discussion so we can see if I can help.
And if you know what you want to do but you aren’t getting shortlisted then I can help with CV reviews, LinkedIn makeovers, Interview coaching and more.
Wishing you a lovely weekend, and I’ll talk again soon.
