My name is Chris Davy, I am the creator of JAWS Job Search.

I have been employed, self-employed, and unemployed. So, I know first hand how difficult and demanding the world of work and getting work can be. But I also know, it doesn’t have to be as hard as it seems sometimes.

I created JAWS Job Search to share my knowledge and experience with others to help them find work and pursue personal goals. I’ve written books that I believe are valuable to anyone looking to progress their situation. To contact me and explore how I can help you e-mail: info@jobandworksearch.com

My Books

These books explore a performance model that I developed called the ‘S is for…’ model.

The model and books use the concept of mnemonics(The Study of Memory) to help take greater control of our mind, our thoughts, our choices, and ultimately our actions. If we can do that then we can genuinely achieve ‘what we put our mind to’.

Both of these books are available in e-book and paperback on Amazon.

S is for…Sports Coaching and Performance e-book paperback

S is for Something e-book paperback

JAWS Job Search provides you with a range of informative career based articles to support you on your journey. Read the blog here.
