Brilliant Employability Skills emphasises the need for students to create their own individual employability profile and brand in order to compete successfully in today’s highly competitive market place for graduate jobs. It is just as important to be able to market yourself as it is to secure your degree. In todays’ job market having a degree is just one piece of the puzzle. A good degree no longer sets you apart from other candidates – this book will provide you with the tools and techniques to allow you to gain and communicate the range of employability skills and behaviours that will make you stand out form the crowd and get the job that you want. The market and demand for practical books on employability is increasing in the UK where the introduction of, and increase in tuition fees and the resulting high levels of student debt are forcing Universities to ensure that their graduates can compete successfully in the graduate job market. This book will focus on students in their first and second year of study, although the tools can equally be applied to those students in their final year and masters programs. The book will aim to encourage students to start creating their employability skills from the commencement of their studies.

The condition of precariousness not only provides insights into a segment of the world of work or of a particular subject group, but is also a standpoint for an overview of the condition of the social on a global scale. Because precariousness is multidimensional and polysemantic, it traverses contemporary society and multiple contexts, from industrial to class, gender, family relations as well as political participation, citizenship and migration. This book maps the differences and similarities in the ways precariousness and insecurity in employment and beyond unfold and are subjectively experienced in regions and sectors that are confronted with different labour histories, legislations and economic priorities. Establishing a constructive dialogue amongst different global regions and across disciplines, the chapters explore the shift from precariousness to precariat and collective subjects as it is being articulated in the current global crisis. This edited collection aims to continue a process of mapping experiences by means of ethnographies, fieldwork, interviews, content analysis, where the precarious define their condition and explain how they try to withdraw from, cope with or embrace it. This is valuable reading for students and academics interested in geography, sociology, economics and labour studies.
