    Dear Mr Gibbons

    Thank you for sending me your videos over the past few days. Whilst I found them interesting, I had figured out much of what was in them over the years. This leads me to what I consider you might find useful; namely that for me, the biggest issue I face is ageism on the part of employers. I’m 56 years old, I hold various academic and technical qualifications (including a PhD in economics), I’ve worked in three industries in my life, and I have a wealth of experience. However, because I’m over 50 years of age, employers are not interested and it is well nigh impossible to land a job. Perhaps you might want to put together a video dealing with this issue and include in your toolkit.

    Many thanks and best wishes,

    Peter Slade

      Peter, really appreciate the comment. This is such a huge issue and I have been working on something for a few weeks now that will help. I will send out details in the newsletter when it’s ready.

    For me there is no ‘ideal job’,because any ‘job’ is never ‘ideal'(at least for me if I go by my temperament).I repeatedly tried to mold myself to the common job and life style presented in my society even few years back.There was one job that I enjoyed being into,but that didn’t give me permanent engagement of mind.Since 90% of my existence depends upon making myself busy into something I enjoy and love doing,for me an ideal career would be to be an entrepreneur.At an age when all my friends are well-established,I’m still struggling to stabilize my new found business.But I know I’ll succeed sooner or later.Because I’ve realized what my potentials and weak points are…and my knowledge about ‘self’ will help me manage my day to day responsibilities and long term planning and my relationship with others.
    My ideal career means to have a new identity for myself,to taste freedom in being responsible for my own decisions,to acknowledge failures and accept success as is.My ideal career means a new found life for me.And thanks to your reports,it gave me a new understanding about the areas I need to work on.Earlier it used to be difficult for me to make out why people misunderstood me,but now I know where I was going all wrong.I’ve found a new direction in my life.Though there’s a lot of challenge to face,yet being the owner of my own business was my dream ever since I was 16.And this is a moment come true now…

    Very interesting and holistic approach to work and life, even mentions how the universal laws are involved in the process and of course, thanks for the info, it has come at exactly the right time 🙂

    To have my ideal job would mean I get up every workday morning looking forward to what the day has to offer, knowing I can go to work and enjoy what I do. I can feel at the end of each day that I am satisfied a job has been well done. I want to feel that I have been proactive and not reactive!

    Hi,
    I don’t think my personality is stopping me getting a job, it’s my age. I’m 48, made redundant in dec 2009 as a an Engineer with 20 years experience in as an Electronics Field service Engineer and been to 3 interviews only.!!!

    Job agencies will not pass my details to prospective employers and do not even consider my experience. I’m sure it’s my age. I’ve seen people with less experience than me but 15 years younger getting jobs I’ve applied for. I didn’t even get an interview.
    I’ve worked at high levels and customer facing was part of my day to day acivity. Iworked well in groups and also worked alone. Is it my personality?

    Do you think that psychometric thing will help me getting my dream job..?
    I think whether I pass that psychometric test or not is irrelevant………This what I’ve experienced in the job market so far.

    If you really want to help me may be you can do me a free kit as I’ve got no money to buy anything at the moment. Or may be yourself Mr Gibbons can help me with some guidance on how to bypass job agencies and get directly to companies so I may have a better chance. You seem to be very well connected with the industry and to what companies want to see in the people they employ.
    I tried to get a job in the middle east but job agencies are charging £400 to pass my CV to employers.???

    I look forward to hear your comments please. [I’m not angry and bitter]

    Best regards

      The ageism things makes me mad. I’m mad on your behalf and all of the other people out there who feel that their age is preventing them from working. I wrote an article about this a while back that I think may be helpful. http://www.peoplemaps.com/2009/02/23/is-it-too-late/

    Not sure there is an ideal job out there anymore. Reading the comments below it seems we are all suffering from the same issues. I have really lost confidents and feel it would be better on the dole! I think I have seen it all – stress, over worked, under paid, ageism, no appreciation, pressure and some! Your course would have to be something special to help find that ‘perfect’ job!

    The ideal job….hmmmmmmm Healthy work environment above all!! We spend more time at work then with our families. Mentally engaging work. If working is the pursuit we must endure so as survive in a capitalistic world, then at the very least let the nature of the work be something that makes me feel proud and satisfied in dedicating a large percentage of my life towards. I require a purpose in my daily work, for time ill spent is the greatest tragedy in a world where every moment is fleeting.

    • MartinGibbons

      Brian, you are absolutely right. We spend so much time at work, we really need to make sure the environment is compatible to who we are. It amazes me that about 95% of people are putting up with unsuitable work environments. It doesn’t need to be this way. Insist on working in an environment that is compatible with who you are.

    To win a copy of your toolkit will actually help me to study or to apply for the right position and to reach my full potential as employee. Im tired of being at a work place and feeling unhappy in my job and hating every moment to sit there and feel that I have no purpose to be here.

    To win a copy will be a huge blessing and a answer to all the years of prayer and direction in decitions that I never now what to make.

    Thank you for all the help so far, I understand myself better thanx to your personality profile test.

      Theresa, Glad you found the videos helpful. I really sympathise with working in a job that you feel has no purpose. It’s a common complaint. As humans, we need purpose. It’s partly what makes us human. You are right to strive for a job that has purpose.

    Dear Martin
    For the last 9 months i am unemployed . Your test was very helpful and suprisingly very acurrate. So i see your offer as an opportunity to learn myself deeper and more accurate in a period with very mixed emotions. And this the reason i want this toolkit.
    Thank you for the opportunity to win a free copy of the toolkit.

    Kind regards

    Dear Martin,

    Thank you for the opportunity to win afree copy of the toolkit. However, I have always been fortunate in my life in always having a job and being able to bounce back during times when I have lost my job. I will be 56 years of age in July this year and have recently been informed that due to cutbacks my job will no longer be available at the end of June 2010. I have always worked for someone else since leaving School and Secretarial College in 1971.

    However, I see the loss of my current job as an opportunity to become self employed, and also fulfil a dream of becoming a published writer, and perhaps finding true love. I have no idea how this will work out or how I will manage to pay my way in the future. I do know for certain that my dream will be fulfilled. I am grateful for the opportunities I have had in my life and am looking forward to the next stage in my life.

    The interpretation of my test has helped me make the decision to take that leap and I do not need the toolkit, free or otherwise and genuinely wish for your free toolkit to be given to someone who has never had a job.

    I wish you continued success in your business and thank you so much for the help you have given me.

    Kind regards.

      Pauline, Thank you for sharing such a positive message. I think my readers will really appreciate this. Let me know how your self employment journey goes. I have some more courses coming out on this at the end of the summer, so keep watching. Entrepreneurial success is a personality issue.

    Dear Martin,
    The interpretation of my test is amazingly accurate and encouraging too. Thank you!
    What I feel now about my job is : panick when I go to bed at night, because I must wake up and go to work, where there is lack of respect, humiliation, no satisfaction, thus no motivation. The reverse would mean my dream job: somewhere where I feel safe, respected, and eager to give the best in me.

    Well, what can I say that others haven’t already done so. I was recently made redundant after 31 years service with a Company which dealt me a huge confidence blow and messed with my emotions. During the last year in my job I have felt at odds with my employers who had become very uncaring and I feel the environment was toxic for me.

    Sitting where I am today, I was thinking it was all me. I was at fault. Having listened to your videos you have helped to restore my faith in me, and made me realise that it is not all me.

    I would like to have the courage for a career change, but it’s scarey. I’m 51 years’ old and feel it’s a bit late, but at the same time it also feels like an opportunity as I’m out of work, to go in a different and more rewarding direction.

    I am hopeful that your toolkit could help me with this dilemna and stop me panicking into another role which gives me no satisfaction.

    So far the videos have been spot on. I thank you for them as they have given me hope.

      Valerie, Delighted the videos helped. 51 is nothing and age is irrelevant. I wrote an article about this a while back http://www.peoplemaps.com/2009/02/23/is-it-too-late/ I have more courses and articles coming that will help you find a way forward. It’s difficult leaving a place of employment after so many years, even if it is “toxic” but you can find a much better job, working with people that appreciate you. I am determined to help you and everyone else in your situation.

    To have my ideal job would provide me with a deep satisfaction and fulfilment. It will give me the social network and connections, opportunities to explore my own creativity, lead and develop successful and “go getting” teams and secure my finances for both my immediate and long-term commitment towards my children and my own retirement. The ideal job would mean that I work for a leader who I respect, admire and someone I can learn from and develop further. The ideal job will have an organisational culture that is embedded in ethical and humanistic values of integrity, trust, respect, responsibility, freedom within boundaries and creativity. The ideal job will allow me to explore my creativity which will add to the bottom line of the division and the organisation at large, with a slice of that profitability contributed towards corporate social responsibility initiatives. The ideal job will make me feel that I have made a difference in the lives of many.

    How I would love to spring out of bed in the morning full of joy for what the day has to bring; to arrive at my workplace knowing I will make a difference; to use all the parts of my brain that at the moment are slowly dying of boredom; to be me; to be all that is me; to give all that I can give; and to be rewarded richly for it. Thank you.

    Martin, you have definately hit the nail on the head with my short profile. I am currently unemployed and have a prospect on the ideal job for me. I am going into an second interveiw on tuesday and i hope to nail it. This would mean an ideal job that pays well, has great job security, that goes a long way to felling better about yourself as well as the family well being. I hope that some of the insight you have given me is going to help me win this great job. I am more prepared now than ever but if i had more tools from you i feel i can get more prepared and win this one!!

    I started work at 15 because of ‘family’ responsibilities, my dream of being a doctor de materialised before my eyes. For 35 years I have done the responsible thing and what was expected of me and yet in all this time I have never found “my perfect job”. Until listening to your responses I thought I would have to do what others expected of me until my grave. Now I feel there is a chance, winning the Tool Kit would give me the opportunity to dare to dream and then put that dream into action.

    Martin, hi – wow the information you have given me so far has answered so many questions-I actually ran through work related events in my mind and so many answers of why things happened all plopped in to place. All the time I thought it was me that got it wrong, little did I realise it was a two way street. I have disliked and not trusted my employers, thinking that as employers they had the upper hand, not any longer I am in charge of my fate.
    Winning the Tool Kit- well it would open the door to so much more, allow me to understand what makes me tick thereby giving me the tools to source my ideal employer and make me a better employee give me my ideal life and stop making do because the salary pays the bills.
    In one of my jobs I was a recruiter, I actually use to say to my candidates – we all spend too much time at work to do a job we dislike, so why do it?
    I feel like you have been looking over my shoulder, thank you for the nudge.

    This simple test has already made a huge difference to me and has confirmed what I suspected (and some things I knew). I’d say it is life changing stuff.
    As I am recovering from depression and do not want to put myself in a situation any more where work is ruining my life instead of helping me achieve things, a career change is of vital importance to me. These emails and simple, to the point comments have given me a push and have been an encouragement in taking the first steps to retraining. It’s still early days, but I hope the road I face will take me to where I want to be. And if not, I’ll be better armed to find another track to lead me to my dream job.

    To find my ideal job would mean complete contentment and happiness in my life. It would provide the opportunity to look forward to each day and to learn new and wonderful skills that would benefit me and the team I was working with. Finding the ideal job would be just a matter of money but more importantly getting on well with my colleagues and being an effective part of the team so that staff and customers all benefited. An ideal job would also benefit my family and would create harmony in my home.

    Dear Martin

    WHAT IT MEANS TO ME TO GET MY IDEAL JOB

    I won’t go down the reality TV show blurb of “It would mean the world to me to get my ideal job”. What it does mean to me as a more mature applicant is that the working element of my life would be fulfilled after years of picking the wrong jobs. Working is important to me and a big part of my life, so I want to be happy in what I do because when I am happy my performance is better. I want to look forward to going to work and to look forward to working with the people I work with. I believe that the Complete Personality Toolkit could help me achieve this.

    Thank you for the insights you gave me on the free videos. This competition would enable me to explore me in more depth.

    Kindest regards
