Guide to Your Best Job Search Mindset
The Job Search Mindset encompasses many aspects of a job search, but from the "buyer's" (employer's) viewpoint.
When you are in a job search, managing yourself through the whole, long process can be one of your biggest challenges. It is very easy to get into a personal pity party and approach your job search either pre-defeated (no one will hire me, so why try) or with a chip on your shoulder (hire me because I need a job NOW). Either attitude will make your job search longer and more difficult.
Successful job seekers take a step back and look at themselves and the whole job search process from the employer’s point of view.
So, this section of Job-Hunt, called the “Job Search Mindset,” will help you adjust your attitude and approach, showing you the employer's perspective on the process.
