The importance of being earnest

… And confident in yourself and your abilities. And passionate. And enthusiastic!

It’s no lie that career searching can either be amazing, or completely sucktastic!

With every résumé that is thrown away, deleted, or ignored; and every interview that I botch no matter how perfect I would be… my spirits could feel crushed time and time again. The entire process could have turned me into quite the cynic.

But it hasn’t.
And it won’t.

Ultimately, the career searching process has done a lot of good, though hard at times, I admit.

  • This process has taught me the importance of trusting (and fully knowing) my own self worth and ability. I do not let other people or other situations define who I am, or what I can do.
  • It has allowed me to grow, to finetune and zoom in on the skills I want to bring with me to the right company. Instead of being ‘all over the place’, I have taken my eclectic background of experience and knowledge, and pinpointed where I ideally want to go with my career. This has significantly improved my search, as well as my ability to hone my interviews.
  • This process has taught me the (true!)importance and value in networking. Through various mediums, both digital and traditional, I have connected with some amazing people, businesses and experiences! I truly, ave gained a significant number of cheerleaders rooting for my success! 
I know it’s hard. Trust me, I can empathize more than I probably would like to. However, our attitude truly is our choice; and it’s so important to choose an attitude that screams DESIRING SUCCESS not DEPRESSED!
Stay motivated! Stay encouraged! Continue to strengthen, learn and finetune YOU, so that the PERFECT company will see you, and realize they NEED you!

    know a few of the pictures aren’t loading properly.
    I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two
    different internet browsers and both show the same results.
