10 Tips for Landing A Killer Job by Michelle Frances

A New Year means a new you, isn’t that how the saying goes? In that spirit here are Emma Fox’s tips for landing that killer new job, but beware, just like that dream job description…not everything is as it seems.

  • Have a read over your resume – maybe it needs a little ‘updating’?
  • Check out the person who’s interviewing you on Google: you’ll be amazed at what you might find out about their previous performance – professional of course.
  • It might be useful to add a few details online of your own – charity work anyone?
  • Get to the interview early: it’s always healthy to size up the competition.
  • It’s really not your fault if you accidentally trip and spill your coffee down their smart suit.
  • Or if your post-grad at Harvard just ‘happens’ to come up in conversation.
  • Always scope out your work team beforehand – sing their praises HIGH. Hallelujah!
  • Don’t be afraid to do whatever it takes to stand out.
  • Smile and make eye contact. Ignore the voice in your head that’s saying: ‘Give me this job or you’ll live to regret it.’  That’s not you.
  • Hold back on some of that persuasive dynamism. Now it’s time for the salary negotiation…

A mother. A son. His girlfriend. And the lie they’ll wish had never been told.

Laura has it all. A successful career, a long marriage to a rich husband, and a twenty-three-year-old son, Daniel, who is kind, handsome, and talented. Then Daniel meets Cherry. Cherry is young, beautiful and smart but hasn’t led Laura’s golden life. And she wants it.

When tragedy strikes, a decision is made and a lie is told. A lie so terrible it changes their lives forever…

The Girlfriend is a taut and wickedly twisted debut psychological thriller—a novel of subtle sabotage, retaliation, jealousy and fear, which pivots on an unforgivable lie, and examines the mother–son–daughter-in-law relationship in a chilling new light.
