How To Get A Job

Question: Thank you for your amazing quotes ................. and now tell me
how to get a job!

Thank you for your kind words about my Daily Inspiration email.

Getting a job...

1. Relax - eliminate the panic from your life over being between jobs. You are likely making yourself miserable -- plus, feeling badly about not having a job lowers your self-esteem and causes you to interview less well.

2. Focus more on the quality of the job and the company than on getting the absolute top dollar in wages. Consider the long term prospects for the job and the company. Always choose a highly ethical job.

3. Try different - and less direct - ways of finding a job. Inventory your skill-sets, and consider taking a job in a different field than your last job. Ask EVERY friend and acquaintance for suggestions and help. While you are between jobs, do some part-time or volunteer work -- that could lead to a connection for a full time job. Consider becoming a self-employed free-lance contractor or starting your own business.

May the world be kind to you, and may your own thoughts be gentle upon yourself.
