The rules for finding a job have changed. Sending your résumé to headhunters, applying for jobs online or responding to advertisements are time wasters. Instead, recruiter Paul Hill shows you how to create a professional online presence – a “ProfessionaliBrand” – that tells future employers who you are and why they should hire you. Hill’s job-hunting advice starts with a foray into self-help with recommendations for techniques you can use to build confidence and overcome negative emotions that impede your ability to get a job.

That’s because the rules of job searching have changed and, perhaps, because you have not yet faced your inner beasts: a lack of confidence born of repeated rejection, plus feelings of fear, shame and inadequacy bred by months of job hunting. You may not have liked your last job, but you clung to it because you equate your personal identity with your work. Solutions for silencing those inner beasts...
