Banging your head against the wall about the job search? 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: #EntryLevelBoss is the book 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. Cool, right?

This is not another manifesto about finding your passion. (I mean, yes, let’s find your passion, sure, but the rent is also due and I 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 job seekers. She has guided thousands of people into full-time employment using these exact steps. Even if you’re convinced you’re the least hireable person on the planet, Alexa’s got you covered.



"A game-changer for anyone who feels like they're waiting for their 'real' career to start. You can either read Alexa’s book, or keep having the 'Sunday Scaries' for the rest of your f*cking life. You pick."—Sarah Knight, New York Times bestselling author of Get Your Sh*t Together

"Three cheers for #ENTRYLEVELBOSS. I love Alexa's voice. I love her advice. And I love that she's broken down getting a job into the steps that every twentysomething wants and needs. Anyone who wants that first job–but is not sure how to get it–should read this book."—Meg Jay PhD, author of The Defining Decade: Why Your Twenties Matter and How to Make the Most of Them Now and Supernormal: The Secret World of the Family Hero
