Dream Job Bookshelf
These are the books that are on my bookshelf that I have turned to time after time during my career for self-help and inspiration. I still refer to them to this day and I hope there may be some here that can help you too. I’ve added links where possible so you can check out the author’s websites too.
The English Dictionary! My advice is not to rely on spell-check which may give you American spellings when you are applying for a position in the UK. If spelling is not your strength, develop the skill of using the dictionary. Your CV, covering letter and application form must be perfect, without any corrections or crossings out. No excuses!
