Okay, so you’ve been hard at work looking for work and you feel that you are about to give up. In this economy, despite all evidence to the contrary, failure is not an option. You have bills to pay, so you can’t simply retire to your room and banish any and all discussion of employment. You must continue to look and search and beat down doors, until some company, somewhere says yes.
Is that easy, no, but the reality is just that simple. You can not give up. You can however, adjust your priorities, salary demands, ability to relocate, chosen field, etc. Bottom line, you can do whatever it takes to make you stand out. Maybe you are willing to work that shift that no one else wants, maybe you are the most flexible when it comes to salary, but what you are not, is a quitter.
When it comes to securing that next great position, you may be securing that next great position for now, but never letting go of that CEO dream of yours. You have to look at what it is you really want and what it might take to get you there. Once having done that, take a deep breath, brace yourself for change and press on until you get what you need.
Never forget, employers are selecting you, but ultimately you’ll decide if you will select them. You will get a job, but where you decide to go from there is completely up to you. Face no with the mind set that it is just a hurdle to overcome in your mission to get to yes!
