Statistics Say Some Are Giving Up!
by Susan Reynolds

The road is hard and dark.  No, it’s not a scene from “Lord of the Rings”; it’s your job search!  The news about the labor market is so bleak that many have simply given up on their search campaign to wait for sunnier days.

Be one of the ones who steps into that vacuum.  If someone steps aside, vanquished, that abandonment is leaving an opening in the flow for someone with more energy and strategy.  People ARE getting hired.  They are the ones who are diligently and emphatically working every angle and every connection.  They are being imaginative and creative in opening doors.  They are building new relationships at every turn.  New industries and concepts are becoming targets.

Every person they meet is a potential career connection.  Every meeting and every event is another opportunity to find success.  Real energy and discipline is being brought to bear.  They’re tired, but they’re not beaten.  They’re well-pressed, well-groomed, and well-prepared.  They have well structured resumes with carefully planned and organized, strategies.  And if there’s an opportunity to be investigated, they’re the first up the step.  They are applying as much dedication to the project of career development and job search as they have to any project they have ever tackled in their lives.  They aren’t giving up.  They will ultimately be successful (again.)

Are you one of them?
