Attitudes That Flop The Job Search

Attitudes That Flop The Job Search

1.  The “I’ll Never Find a Job” attitude is obvious in its negative nature, but a negative attitude while job searching is going to lead you nowhere but to throwing a pity party for yourself.

Continually telling yourself, you cannot find a job is going to reduce your motivation in searching. Essentially you determine your own outcome, so think positive and keep encouraging yourself until you find new employment.

2.  The “I don’t care what kind of job it is, I just need a job” attitude comes from those who apply for every open job. This is not an effective job search and rarely leads to results.  You are often wasting your time applying for a job you might not even be skilled for or have the qualifications to complete. Read the job outline in its entirety and apply only for positions that will challenge you and that you will be able to succeed at.

3. Refusing to put forth effort in searching and claiming, “jobs just come” doesn’t result in many interviews. For some people, they have never had to create a resume or interview for a job until later in life. Lucky for them previously having an easy find and hire, but now the search is on. Don’t assume something will “come your way” or “fall into your lap” — you need to spend time creating or editing your resume and ensuring it is top quality. Those who seek often find, so start searching for a job rather than assuming it will just come.

4. The “I should be the boss” attitude is always a sure way to keep yourself jobless. Sure you might have the skills, experience, and knowledge to be the boss, but it’s ok to be the employee too! You might just learn to love working with others and being part of a great team. Be open to accepting a position that is less of a leadership role if you feel you could enjoy the position and it has great potential!

5. Before you even have a new job, avoid being the “I don’t care about working or what happens to the company” employee. Recruiters and employers alike can quickly separate those in an interview who are excited and ready to work their hardest and succeed.

Your attitude towards a job is going to make or break an offer.

Employers see and talk with tons of potential candidates and it is easy to pick out those who want to work hard, be punctual and achieve high goals.

It might be reasonable to consider talking with a friend or mentor about your negative feelings in searching for a new job, you’re not the only one who has ever felt this way.

Sometimes processing through your emotions leads to a great outcome and change of attitude.
