Searching for a job is difficult mostly because it is so psychologically daunting. It is nearly impossible to motivate oneself to complete applications and submit resumes without feeling hopeful, but this same hope all too easily backfires into feelings of disappointment and rejection. Worsening the problem, many people searching for jobs who have been recently laid off are affected by feelings of vulnerability, hopelessness, and low self-esteem. Fearless Job Hunting is a psychologically sophisticated guide that applies cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) techniques to help readers searching for jobs silence negative self-talk and focus on taking action. Readers learn how to create a productive and positive work environment for effective job searching, put an end to self-limiting beliefs and other self-imposed barriers, and make the most of networking opportunities. Readers also discover communication skills and psychological techniques drawn from CBT that can help them not only get the interview, but ace it. The book includes information from decision-makers who work in government, Fortune 500 companies, local grocery chains, entrepreneurial operations, and more on what helps and hurts job candidates. Also included is advice for negotiating contracts once a job is offered and translating CBT skills to the workplace.

A well written, refreshing read on an overdone subject. They provide a unique perspective on the personal psychology of job-searching that was introspective and useful. I read it twice.
