Kolkata/UNI: The Covid-induced pandemic has created widespread joblessness across the globe but somewhere a writer is charting out a roadmap to beat the blues.
You may be banging your head against the wall about the job search or wondering why nobody’s even bothering to send you a rejection letter (much less an interview request).
You are not alone.
This process is a beast, but there’s good news. Alexa Shoen's new book #EntryLeveLBoss may just be the answer for you. This is an easy-to-follow roadmap for transforming yourself from frustrated job seeker into hired, happy, productive human.
One part behind-the-scenes memoir, one part playbook, #EntryLevelBoss lays out career coach Alexa Shoen’s proven 9-step methodology for approaching the job search during these crazy times we’re living through. Think of it like a fitness plan―except instead of killer abs, you wind up with multiple interviews for a bunch of jobs you actually want, publisher Harper Collins said in an email to UNI here today.
‘From the very start, #ENTRYLEVELBOSS was always a book specifically written for the people who are truly panicking about their employment prospects. For the ones who know that they have so much to offer to a good company, but don't know how to explain themselves. For the ones who are willing to work so hard, and can't understand why they aren't getting interviews. The world's most hireable people–the ones who work at the Googles and Facebooks and Amazons of the world–approach their job search differently than we were taught to do when we were young. I paid attention, I figured out how it really worked, and I decided to write it all down. That secret code? That's what you're getting when you read #ENTRYLEVELBOSS,' the statement quoted Alexa Shoen as saying.
This is not another manifesto about finding your passion. (Alright, let’s find your passion, sure, but the rent is also due and one would assume you’re interested in getting paid.) This is a real plan that’s based on the real rules of the game. You’ll learn how to effectively identify your future hiring manager, for example and slide into their DMs in the least creepy way possible.
Alexa Shoen is the internet’s leading confidant for panicking jobseekers, the publisher's note said.
