SHEIFGAB! Staying Sane, Motivated and Productive in Job Search – by IABN’s Own Conor Cunneen

Our good friend Conor Cunneen has just published a book that should be of interest to everyone in transition – SHEIFGAB! Staying Sane, Motivated and Productive in Job Search. It is available on Kindle at the ridiculously low price of $2.99. (Paperback is $12.99)

I’ve read the book and I love it, but I’ll let one Amazon reviewer speak for the book. “If someone had told me you could write a humorous book on the job search process, I would have wondered how much time they’ve been spending at the pub.

His SHEIFGAB concept, providing 8 building blocks to help you through the challenges of the job search, is full of insights and ideas that will lift anyone who is struggling through what Conor calls a “rite of passage.” read more
