The Gunnet-Shoval Group

Stress is the combination of a perceived threat — whether real or imagined — and one that feels beyond control. Few things are more stressful than coping with unemployment. Few things are more dangerous to conducting a successful job search than allowing stress to overcome you. There are, however, ways to take control of your stress thus preventing it from taking control of you.
On January 14, Drs. Karyn Gunnet-Shoval and Bruce Hurwitz will conduct a 90-minute workshop designed to help participants manage job search-related emotion and replace it with logical and purposeful decision making.
This event is limited to the first 20 people to register, so register today!
Feel free to bring your own hot beverage and breakfast. All attendees will receive a free copy of the e-book edition of Bruce Hurwitz’s book, A Hooker’s Guide to Getting a Job: Parables from the Real World of Executive Recruiting and Career Counseling.
