Advice To Job Seekers

Published in job hunting, on Feb 2, 2021

This article from linkedin influencer Daniel Goleman outlines advice for job seekers. These are my takeaways:

  • Emotional balance is essential for the job hunt. Remove yourself from your thoughts, practice mindfulness and let thoughts come and go without attaching yourself to them. Stay cool headed when others might panic.

  • Resilience is being able to bounce back from setbacks. Stay focused on your goal: getting your next job. The faster you get back to calm after you get upset is one measure of how resilient you are.

  • Keep going. The ability to keep going despite rejection and disappointments is crucial. Every "no" gets you closer to the next "yes". It's a numbers game. Keep your attitude!
