How You Think Can Sabotage Your Search

This is the perfect time of year to remember reasons to be grateful.

It’s often hard to remember your endless talents and skills, or even think about being grateful when you’ve been in a job search longer than you anticipated. It is easy to get down on yourself and often feel negative or depressed. If you allow these thoughts and feelings to affect your attitude it will sabotage your search.

Take time to think of a time when you felt the best about yourself. Remember the exact day, where you were and how you were feeling about yourself. This confident, happy person is the individual that needs to conduct your job search. You’re that same person just under different circumstances.

Take out a piece of paper and write down your talents, your personality traits, your accomplishments and every positive characteristic that describes you. Whenever rejection or disappointments get you down remember to pull out that list.

You are an extremely talented person who deserves to find an opportunity that represents your next logical career move. Never forget that fact as you progress on your job search journey!
