If you’ve been in job search, you’ve discovered that feeling vulnerable, victimized and useless can really impact your ability to look for work.
Over on Career Hub, Billie Sucher lists 21 things every job seeker needs to do. I added one to her wonderful list.
22) Be enthusiastic if not passionate about what you are pursuing.
Being enthusiastic will require that you know what’s going on in the company before you go in for the interview. Do some serious research on the company. Be able to explain (without being asked, hopefully), who you really are, what makes you special and what can you do for the company. There’s a post to read to better understand this logic. Ace the Executive interview with Visibility, Value and Vision.
There is so much great advice out there. There’s no reason to feel sorry for yourself. There are jobs for the right people. Take control today.
