Trainer and executive mentor Hilary Wilson operates on the assumption that the workplace is no longer paternalistic. Here she aims to show readers how to give themselves ‘lifelong employability’, and to get themselves noticed at work – for the right reasons.

Wilson has created a useful manual – there are exercises to work through, quizzes to answer (with guidance on what your responses mean) and charts for you to adapt.

Tips include ‘daydream more’ and the more conventional ‘consider yourself a brand’. I particularly liked the self-audit chart and the section on rating your CV. And there’s even a Jelly Baby illustration for sweet-toothed readers.
