Share your job search success stories

There is a saying out there that you learn from the journey, not the destination. Actually we may just have butchered an old Chinese proverb – but never mind. When you think about it, your job search is like a journey, and unless you are very lucky, or very clever, that journey never follows a straight path.

On this page you’ll find stories from our readers. They share how they have found a job or insights from their journey.

If you’d like to contribute a story, we’d love to hear from you.

Simply send us an email with your story to and we’ll send you a copy of our e-book: What do employers really want?

PS…stories of 500-1000 words work best, and we may lightly edit them.
