Dating & the Job Search

Finding a job is like dating.  Will he call?  Why hasn’t he called? When will our next date be?  Will we become exclusive?  If I don’t call, will he think I’ve found someone new and come back? It’s one big mind trick and it all depends on how you persevere through it until you find “the one.”  Hence why the job search is like dating.

So what do you do to get through it all?  Keep going, have fun, be the best you, don’t put all your eggs in one basket.  You need to make sure that you are putting you first and making sure that whatever choice you make it’s not just so you can say you have a job, although sometimes you do have to make that choice, but that it’s the right fit for you and your life.  I’ve had opportunities not work out where I was incredibly bummed but had to pick right back up again and found some better fits career wise.  I’ve also moved on to opportunities which I should have been more cautious about and watched for the red flags in interviews.

Do what’s right for you and truly make sure it’s the right fit.

Good luck!
