An acquaintance of mine was having a rough time with a superior recently and, likely out of frustration, asked about buying a copy of my book. After she read it, she was invigorated and knew what she had to do career-wise, she told me in no uncertain terms.
The reason for her changed mood and career outlook? My book had reminded her of what I think is the most important job-hunting lesson of all — always believe in yourself and your abilities. A terrible job can make you feel worthless. You have to fight that to find a better place emotionally. Only then can you find a job that will hopefully be more fulfilling.
It’s tough to lift your head high when everyone around you is dumping on top of you, I know, but work at it, try a little more each day. You can’t go into interviews seeming hopeless or worthless, no one wants to hire someone who doesn’t believe in themselves.
