Book a Career Development Session


When you are looking for a job it can be a very lonely process, where you receive conflicting information about your CV, your experience, what jobs you should be looking for, how to style your applications, write covering letters etc. We will work with you on a one-to-one basis, advising on all of this, including how to pitch yourself, and help you formulate an action plan.
We can help you showcase your skills to put your application ahead of the pack or help you create the perfect covering letter. We do this by discussing the publishing roles most suited to your skills and show you how to attract employers, then help you get where you want to be.

By supporting you one-to-one as you job search, you can feel empowered as you pitch yourself and formulate an action plan to get that dream job.

We have helped people get promotions, change career and move to different sectors including bookselling to publishing and academic to trade. This package is tailored to your individual job search, and comes with a limited amount of follow up which can be supported by extra mini consultations as necessary – so you only pay for the support that you need.

We also provide a comprehensive tailor-made package for people looking to switch departments in any direction – from marketing to editorial, sales to editorial and editorial to marketing to name some of the most popular moves. We work face-to-face (appointment time 2 hours) or via Skype/BT (2 x 50 minute appointments). There will be a follow up call to your appointment to ensure that you are on track with your action plan and are making progress with your goals.

If you feel a Career Development appointment is for you, please first book a Careers Clinic call. It’s a free 20 minute conversation which allows you to outline your aims and us to confirm whether we are the best people to help.

Career Guidance

If you ‘fell into your job’ or you’re in the dream job you thought you wanted but now hate, we can offer career guidance for roles inside and outside of publishing. We will help you identify your transferable skills, analyse what situations and organisations you work best in, and help point you in the right direction. You’ll be given an action plan to work through and where appropriate, a follow up call will be available.
