Since enrolling in graduate school in 2009, Scott Engler had spent an astonishing amount of time in the pursuit of work in his specific field resulting in minimal success. Over time, he began to feel an extreme amount of frustration due to a lack of success in his own job searching experience, Scott continued to hear more stories from friends, family, and acquaintances that also were experiencing similar feelings of shame, anger, and lowered self-worth resulting from continued rejection from employers, and an inability to adequately provide for oneself. The compounded stress of graduate school debt coupled with the intense difficulty to be able to find sufficient work based on his qualifications felt debilitating at times. Scott gradually discovered that he wasn’t alone, and he wanted to make a difference to help people in this particular struggle.
The decision to write his first publication “The Job Inner-View” came to him as sort of an epiphany one morning in late 2012, as he wanted to write about all the different successful and creative methods he used to find work in hopes that it could help encourage and inspire millions of other people adjust to the “contemporary changes in job searching” he had abruptly discovered for himself over the period of job searching for several years. Throughout the course of writing his book, he was able to interview various well known and highly experienced employers; gaining both insight and feedback on how one should go about finding work in today’s economy, as well as recurring similarities in success stories from employees he interviewed who found work.
