What do successful job seekers do that separates them fromtheir less successful counterparts? Here's the book that provides 127 answersto that question. In fact, millions of job seekers face employment barriers.While some barriers may be caused by other people (discrimination) orcircumstances beyond one's control (chronic health issues or naturaldisasters), most barriers represent self-inflected red flags created by poorchoices, questionable skills, sketchy experience, and difficult personalities.Few job seekers are victims of a lousy job market, bad employers, or dumb luck.It's a candidate's own cumulative red flags or potholes in life job hopping,incarceration, termination, time gaps, negative attitudes, and limitededucation, skills, and experience that make employers suspicious, hesitant,reluctant, and then resistant to interview and hire such risky people. Similar toaddictions, old habits are difficult to break, and denial prevents many peoplefrom changing their red flag behaviors. But few employment barriers are everinsurmountable. Most self-inflicted barriers pose challenges that requirechanges in attitudes and mindsets renewed understanding, purpose,determination, and the drive to succeed. This user-friendly guide, overlaidwith a strong cognitive therapy theme, initially profiles each barrier as aseries of introspective questions and then provides descriptions and analysesfollowed by sound advice on how to best overcome the particular barrier.Organized by different types of barriers and related red flags, the bookincludes: - 12 barriers related to skills and work history - 27 barriersassociated with attitudes and behaviors - 8 barriers focused to health,wellness, and disabilities - 80 barriers centered on job search knowledge andskills How do successful job seekers approach their job search, communicatewith potential employers, complete applications, market resumes and letters,and get job interviews and offers? How do they handle rejections and bounceback? The 127 barriers outlined in this book go a long way to answering theseimportant questions. .
