Liz Barclay meets some job seekers whose search for employment is aided by three mentors: business guru Charles Handy, founder of Coffee Republic Sahar Hashemi and management coach Jenny Rogers.
The job seekers negotiate homework set by their personal mentors and apply for yet another job, against the backdrop of the severest recession for decades.
Jenny Rogers has been an executive coach for 18 years. She trains other coaches as well as continuing to work with her own clients. She is a founder-director of the UK consultancy, Management Futures Ltd and runs her own consultancy.
Sahar Hashemi founded Coffee Republic with her brother, Bobby Hashemi, in 1995 and is the author of Anyone Can Do It.
Charles Handy is a social theorist who has written extensively on management and education. His books include The Elephant and the Flea and The New Philanthropists.
