5 Quotes to Keep You Motivated in Your Job Search

October 27th, 2016

Job searching can be difficult and frustrating. You feel like you’re going through all the same motions day after day, but with little reward. When you do get a bite, not every action will turn into a job offer. But job searching is sometimes a numbers game, and you have to apply to as many jobs as you’re qualified for to even get an interview. Do you need to be motivated to stick to it and keep working on finding your next dream job? Here are some words of wisdom to help you move forward.

1. “You can be absolutely afraid and completely brave in the very same moment.” – Brene Brown. One thing to know is that you’re not the first person to be in this position. And it is okay to be terrified of what happens next, but still be prepared to make it happen. Don’t let your fear paralyze you. Bravery and fear are not mutually exclusive.

2. “If you don’t ask, you don’t get.” – Cathie Black. Remember, no one is a mind reader. You can’t get the job if you don’t ask for it. You can’t negotiate the right salary if you’re not willing to start the conversation. Know that no one else is going to give you everything you want if you don’t let them know you want it.

3. “The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity. The optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.” – Winston Churchill. Employment experts often say that positivity is the most important aspect of your job search. There is a reason for that. Companies don’t want to hire someone who is negative or speaks poorly about past experiences. Instead, they want someone who is willing to take a negative situation and turn it into a positive experience.

4. “People who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.” – Rob Siltanen. You have to take a chance to make a difference. That isn’t just relegated to Gandhi or Mother Theresa, but everyone can make a difference even in their own small way. Know that when you’re applying for a job, you are there to solve a specific problem. Encompass that solution and communicate it.

5. “The man who has confidence in himself gains the confidence of others.” – Hasidic Proverb. Another aspect of finding the right job is to be confident. When you’re confident in your own skills and in your own skin, others will take you more seriously. You need to be confidence, but not arrogant when you’re meeting with potential employers.
