Getting started on the hunt for a new job is something that most of us feel overwhelmed by. Nobody particularly likes looking for a job, it is usually associated with a turning point or significant event in our lives, and it forces us to allow other people to evaluate our worth. It puts us in a position that forces vulnerability. This vulnerability is uncomfortable and almost washes away all of the confidence that we will need during the process. Fortunately, there are simple steps that you can do to regain that confidence. Finding this website, reading this blog, and following my simple tips is a good start.
This is where I want to tell a story from my boyhood about how I learned a lifelong lesson from a personal trial that I overcame through hard work, discipline, and by never giving up. The reality, however, is that I don’t have any of those stories. I am a Millennial, I grew up in a middle-class family, and if I am honest never really had to overcome anything major. This personal description isn’t to take away from my credibility, rather to support it. I think my background is pretty average and it makes me who I am today. It also shapes how I am approaching this blog. Interviewing better isn’t a long journey that you have to work at. It is something that you can be good at by following quick tips and saying key phrases. That’s what this blog is, practical takeaways that you can immediately apply. Because today’s job market is full of average people like me and you need something that you can use now to give yourself an edge.
