Job Seekers Maintain a Positive Attitude in Your Job Search
A job search can be a frustrating process. Having many conversations with lots of different people and not seeing any immediate results is hard. Getting angry as part of that process is natural.
But it’s important that you channel that anger so you don’t sabotage yourself and undermine your job search. Exercise. Rant in the shower. Scream in your car when you’re alone. But don’t take out your frustrations on people who may be able to help you.
If you’re feeling angry, consider your most recent interactions in an interview, with a recruiter at a job fair, or at a networking event. Did you walk in with a positive attitude and a smile? If you didn’t, do you think the results would have been better if you had?This entry was posted on Tuesday, January 17, 2012 7:19 am
