Mindset for Success

Having a winning mindset on the job hunt is the key. Here are a few tips to keep in mind:

Job hunting is NOT a numbers game: focusing on only a few opportunities, and going above and beyond to win those, yields way better results than spray and pray.

Don’t do stuff you hate: don’t apply to soul-sucking roles, but learn how to discover opportunities that excite you.

Networking is NOT everything: you can break into great opportunities even if you know nobody at the company.

Quote of the Week

“The problem both for us as a society and as individuals is that we’re asking the wrong question: ‘How do I get a job doing that?’ What if the better question is: ‘How do I create a job doing that?'”

― Taylor Pearson, The End of Jobs
