Getting Hired (Part 3)
Ready for the 3rd part of this series?
Let's talk about your attitude.
Odds are if you are unemployed, your self esteem has taken a hit.
And it shows.
You need to change it.
You need to put on a happy face, but it has to go deeper than that.
You need to believe in yourself and your ability to do the job that you are applying for.
It's called confidence.
If you were let go from your last job because of something you did, or didn't do, in other words you were fired, then you need to take responsibility and promise yourself that you will not do "that" again.
If you lost your job due to cutbacks and it honestly had nothing to do with you personally, then don't take it personally.
Use the negative self-talk you are hearing and tell it to shut up and replace it with positive messages.
This is what salespeople have to do every week, sometimes everyday.
And those examples I mentioned, they have all happened to me in my life.
Tomorrow, the subject will be resumes and applications.
