Maybe you are using effective job search strategies, but you can’t land a job yet. Therefore, you feel unhappy, frustrated, and unmotivated.
You might also doubt yourself, question your qualification, and lose confidence in your skills and abilities. But guess what? This is not the time for a pity party. Instead, more than ever before, you should keep going and present a confident and positive outlook— or vibe.
You may wonder, “Why?”
All companies or businesses are built around human beings. Having nice buildings and furniture is appealing, but they do not generate profits or lead to success since they are far from being as valuable as human resources.
From the beginning of time, businesses have relied on valuable staff to grow their fortune, and they will continue to do so. That is to say, there will always be room for a valuable talent like you are. But there’s a problem…
Most hiring managers fail to see potential in great candidates and settle for average workers or resumes. So, don’t beat yourself up when you get no job offers as quickly as you want.
Do you want an example? Tom Brady, the six-time Super bowl champ, was a 199th overall draft pick in the National Football league. Most of the NFL teams skipped him.
Keep reinforcing and expanding your job search strategies
Again, stop blaming yourself. Instead use your energy and time to reinforce your job search strategies by doing volunteer work or picking up projects that will improve your competencies.
See, most often, employers settle for average employees because hiring managers don’t know better. That’s why crappy customer service, bad attitudes, and low-quality products are everywhere we turn. As a result, these companies struggle to stay in business year after year without overcoming the competition and satisfying their employees.
It’s a catch-22 situation. Dissatisfied employees provide average customer services that hold companies in harsh competition, and these companies can’t satisfy their staff because harsh competition eats up their budget—and profits. The bad news is this cycle won’t end soon.
On the other hand, there is hope in the job market for valuable talents. Many employers need your remarkable work. They need employees that can create tension, drive innovation, and move the needle. People who can run with their vision and offer customers more than what they thought they needed.
As I said, instead of giving up on yourself, it’s time to double down. So, what are you going to do in the next 24 hours to escalate your job search strategies?
