What's the real secret of successful job hunters?

In these unstable times, everyone wants to stand out from the crowd and secure a rewarding job with long-term potential. But what does it actually take to get the job you want? Ninety-seven percent of employers argue that it goes beyond having the right skills - it's all about the right mindset.

James Reed, chairman of recruitment giant Reed, knows what employers really want from the people they hire and promote. With bestselling author Paul Stoltz, he has now identified exactly what makes you more likely to succeed when you're job hunting.

In this book, Reed and Stoltz explain the '3G Mindset' - the way to develop the traits that will set you apart from the herd. Their powerful tools will help you assess your own mindset, and show employers your true value.

The book includes some good advice on resume writing and on important productive attitudes. I am uncertain that truly global, good, and grit are the three most important attitudes but much of the book makes sense. I mildly recommend this book. Read full review

I really loved this book and found it motivated and inspired me. I have never actually finished the whole book but it has been widely circulated amongst colleagues who equally loved it.
