Hundreds attended the event and each woman received a free copy of the book, "exactly as i am", Thanks to Jackets for Jobs, Inc. Shaun Robinson, a Metro Detroit native focuses her book on self-esteem and self confidence. Having self confidence is the first step toward your happiness and a better life. Shaun's book will help customers of the Detroit Workforce Development Department stand out from the crowd. Getting the job you want in today's competitive market takes self confidence. The event was held Friday, May 22, 2009 at 10:00am at Jackets for Jobs' downtown office.
"This book is important for our clients because here in Detroit the job market is so scarce and I want our clients to keep a positive attitude and feel good about themselves. I want to provide all the necessary job tips and help skills possible for our job seekers," states Alison Vaughn, founder of Jackets for Jobs, Inc. "Having Shaun talk about building your self esteem was great for our clients." Self confidence is the difference between feeling unstoppable and feeling scared out of your wits. Your perception of yourself has an enormous impact on how others perceive you. Perception is reality -- the more self confidence you have, the more likely it is you'll succeed.
