Are failing job seekers hiding or is the job market really bad?I have to wonder why so many people are unemployed. Is it because they lack the skills to fill needed jobs as many employers are saying, or is it that they are hiding? Or is it that they don't know how to talk and write about their skills? Or is it because they don't know how to find available jobs? Maybe it is because the successful job seekers aren't sharing their secrets.
Obviously, there isn't just one thing that contributes to their success. Nor is there one thing that puts someone into the category of an unsuccessful job seeker.
People who have secured a new job have these things in common:
- Confident in their abilities
- Understand where the demand for their jobs exist
- Positive attitude
- Strong network
These are the basics. Certainly there are other reasons they are successful. Wouldn't it be nice to know more?
If you would like to share what you think contributed to your securing a new job, please, help others by sharing. If an online forum isn't for you, then find another way to help inspire others!
