Look in the Mirror
You are in charge of your life. No one is coming to save you.
Not even us! We’re here to tell you: no one is coming to save you.
So look at the results you are (not) getting on the job hunt.
Wake up! Look in the mirror. Your past actions created your present results.
It’s true you may have been misled by the blast-out-resumes, spray-and-pray dogma.

Quote of the Day
“Your outcomes are a lagging measure of your habits. Your net worth is a lagging measure of your financial habits. Your weight is a lagging measure of your eating habits. Your knowledge is a lagging measure of your learning habits. Your clutter is a lagging measure of your cleaning habits. You get what you repeat.”
―James Clear, Atomic Habits
