Is It Time To Do A Check Up From The Neck Up?
During our weekly job seeker live webinars, our trainer has picked up on some negative attitudes from some of the job seekers who are asking questions. Our fear is that potential employers might also pick up on these negative vibes and impact their decision to hire or not to hire. We understand this is a very difficult time of year to be unemployed. We understand that many of you are sick and tired of your family and friends asking you if you are still looking for a job. We understand how frustrating it is to be rejected and not receive a job offer. It’s easy to focus on what has and is going wrong with your job search.
However, it’s time to realize you have NO control over the job market, or the decisions made by hiring authorities. You DO have 100% control over how you choose to react. Their decisions can become learning experiences to improve your search efforts, or they can destroy you. The choice is yours to make.
Your attitude depends 10% of what
happens to you and 90% on how you choose to react. Often the best decision is to refuse to react at all and just continue your efforts. The job seekers who are receiving job offers have just decided to get rejected more than you have! Each no and each experience with rejection puts you that much closer to getting a yes. Someone’s opinion of you does not have to become your reality. Get out there and escalate your search efforts during the Holidays.
When you meet people and they ask you about your job search, smile and tell them it’s been a real adventure being a free agent in the open job market. If you appear sad and depressed people will avoid making contact with you. Appear happy and approachable and then turn the attention to them and ask them about themselves. If you let someone talk about themself, they like you more and will be more apt to provide you with leads, referrals and networking possibilities.
