Easier Ways to Find a Job - You Don"t Have to Deal With Past Pitfalls
Often it is all too easy to reflect on where we went wrong and this can then adversely affect our performance in subsequent interviews.
Here I will take you through some practical steps to shift yourself towards a positive mindset both now and in the future! It is very important in this situation to recognise where you are right now.
Are you still working and want to change, or have you lost your job, been made redundant and if so for how long? Beware of your feelings and your attitude.
It is very typical, especially if you have just lost, or are about to lose, your job to have some strong feelings about it.
These may show up in Anger, Denial, Sadness, Depression and Shock.
These are most noticeable in the early days after job loss but can still prevail in the medium, and longer term.
So it is most important to get the help and support of a close friend or family member.
However do not pick a negative person who is a 'doom and gloom' merchant! you need someone who is more positive and up-beat who can help and encourage you.
What else can you do? Get as much assistance you can, either through 'Job Centre Plus', or an external agency skilled such assistance.
Retain a positive, up-beat manner.
If possible team up with an other, or maybe more, person who finds themselves in a similar situation.
Go to the library and use all it's resources including Business Directories which will contain information on Companies and other Organisations who you can contact regarding possible vacancies.
Once your CV is produced contact Recruitment Agencies and try to find out which deal with the kind of Jobs you are seeking.
Make sure you are as well prepared as possible, you have a double selling task to perform, both the Agent, and then, hopefully the Employer direct.
Whatever you do forget any past difficulties and mistakes, other than learning from these the future! Remember to always keep networking your contacts and don't be afraid of asking them for any information they have about other organisations and their current situation.
