In today’s economy, being qualified is not enough . . .

Do you want advice on how to stand out in a crowded marketplace? Do you want to take your career to the next level and beyond? In Stand Out & Succeed, career and business strategist Christy Frank explains how the job market really works, and shows you the strategies, psychology and tactics you need to know to get a lucrative, recession-proof career you love.

The biggest problem with finding a job today is that we actually have two job markets – the public and the gated – and 95 per cent of people don’t know how to perform well in either. Stand Out & Succeed is both practical and transformational, giving readers a new perspective on themselves and showing them how they can attract potential employers or clients.

Written for graduates, freelancers and professionals alike, Stand Out & Succeed is a cutting-edge guide that shows you how to discover your passion, accelerate your career and become recession-proof.

‘Here’s a great book for the right time . . . This is the best guide I have seen for how to present your unique talents to the world in a time wherein innovation and creativity to succeed will matter more than ever.’—Harry S. Dent Jr., author of The Demographic Cliff
