Principal Consultant, Career OverDrive!
Do you know what often separates candidates who thrive when searching for a new job from candidates who struggle or continually come up empty handed?
Here it is.
Candidates who struggle when searching for a job are often controlled if not enslaved by their ego, pride and social fears while they harbor an unhealthy fear of failure. To top it off, these folks are more often than not both approval and validation seeking and subscribe to success limiting myths and memes.
Unsurprisingly, these folks find the job search very difficult, uncertain and often fraught with stress and anxiety all while yielding very few job offers if any.
What is the solution?
It's critical l that candidates let go of their ego, pride and all social fears while reframing any "fear of failure" as excitement and adventure. Approval-seeking behavior must also be killed off while the veracity of all memes must be continually revisited and discarded when proven untrue.
A candidate who is able to do this is well on his or her way to becoming unstoppable.
