The Daily Job Hunt

Mindsets for Success


Respond Fast
When you get a reply from a company you're excited about, respond as quickly as you can. This signals reliability and interest! The interview begins before the interview.


Attitude is a Choice
Companies can be like referees. Maybe they make the wrong call...but are you going to get mad at them, and complain?

You can if you want. But what if you just moved on to creating more value, for them or another company?

You always have a choice in attitude.
