There are two sides to everything and one is always usually better than the other. If you are out looking for a job and one thing you keep thinking about is the recession, things certainly aren’t going to go your way. The reason being you are looking at the ugly side of the job market. You see, even during bad economy there are certain sectors that thrive and some that get hit pretty hard. Sure, the job market catering to your skill might be pretty bad at the moment, but it doesn’t hurt to diversify just a little.
If you are a laid off loan officer, it doesn’t mean you have to have a job that specifically asks for a loan officer. You have financial background and with some adjustments I am sure you can take most finance related jobs and excel at it. Everytime I talk to someone who has been laid off, the first thing they say is something like this ” I just can’t find a job cause the job market is horrible.” Well, way to go buster. Think negative and expect positive outcomes? Well, that doesn’t happen very often. If you want to nail that job, if you want to support your means and above all, if you need a job right now, the key is to build confidence. Not just in yourself but the economy itself.
So what if the economy isn’t looking good? So what if there aren’t too many jobs around? It can’t be that bad when the neighbor still seems to head out to work everyday. I mean come on, he is your neighbor. Remember the last time you said how you were so much better than him? Exactly. Go out and conquer your search. Be confident and remember to always keep these two words in the back of your head while dropping applications: Screw Recession.
Think positive and positive outcomes will follow.
