About the Book

Successful job seekers have two major skills their competitors don't: the psychological endurance to approach job opportunities fearlessly, and the ability to adapt to a variety of situations to position themselves as each interviewer's dream candidate. Fearless Job Hunting offers these powerful psychological techniques drawn from cognitive behavioral therapy and reveals the strategies decision makers in top corporations use to find and hire exceptional employees.

    This book shows you how to:
  • Silence unproductive anxieties and self-limiting beliefs
  • Develop the motivation and stamina to stay positive while job seeking
  • Pressure-proof yourself by building confidence and cool-headedness
  • Get the edge in interviews by honing your communication skills

This book has received the prestigious accolade of being included in The Albert Ellis Tribute Book Series—created to honor the life and work of Albert Ellis, the founder of rational emotive behavioral therapy (REBT). REBT is one of the most widely-practiced therapies throughout the world and is the foundation for cognitive-behavioral therapy and other evidence-based approaches. These books provide proven-effective treatments and tools to improve psychological well-being, while also supporting advancements in psychotherapy for the betterment of humanity.

Praise

“If having a systematic game plan for obtaining a job appeals to you, you will love Fearless Job Hunting. The authors provide very practical information for every step of the job-hunting process. Most importantly, with the power of cognitive behavioral therapy, Fearless Job Hunting will teach you how to think rationally so that you can get out of your own way to get the job of your dreams.”
—Aldo R. Pucci, Psy.D., president of the National Association of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapists

“Anxiety and hopelessness about the ravages of unwanted unemployment have paralyzed countless millions of Americans. Many desperately seek advice on how to restart or change their careers. Through sound and powerful scientifically tested principles, compassion, and reader-friendly exercises, Fearless Job Hunting will become the new standard handbook for finding the right job at the earliest time.”
—Barry Lubetkin, Ph.D., founding copresident of the Behavioral Therapy Center in New York

“If you are seeking work, thinking of changing jobs, or know people struggling with unemployment, then this is a must-read book for you. Fearless Job Hunting goes far beyond the how-to, cookie-cutter books found in this field. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to get employed sooner rather than later.”
—Richard S. Schneiman, Ph.D., codirector of the Intermountain Center for REBT in Salt Lake City, UT.

“This is a timely book for those whom the global financial crisis has thrown out of work and young people entering the job market for the first time. This hands-on manual shows you how to present your strengths and capabilities in a competitive job-seeking market. It demonstrates how to reduce negative thinking—for example, thoughts of low self-worth—and how to manage anxiety-provoking interviews. The book contains many useful check lists, tables, and two valuable chapters on communication skills and résumé preparation. I recommend it to job seekers both young and old seeking to optimize their chances of getting the jobs they want.”
—Antony Kidman, AM, Ph.D., director of the Health Psychology Unit at the University of Technology in Sydney, Australia

“Learn to use powerful psychological principles to create an efficient job-search environment, network, communicate effectively with employers, and keep moving forward when the going gets tough. Whether you are looking for a dream job or just one to get by with for now, use this complete job search reference to give yourself a winning edge and get the job you want.”
—Janet Wolfe, Ph.D., former executive director of the Albert Ellis Institute and adjunct professor at New York University

“A sane and practical book on getting the job you want. Don’t put this book down—run to the check-out counter. Then use the book to help yourself land that great job.”
—Vincent E. Parr, Ph.D., president of the Rational Living Foundation
