Career Advisor

I often talk to people that are worried about “what everyone thinks” and therefore don’t want to socialize. Summer is here and there will be endless opportunities for you to get outside and meet up with people. It’s easy to want to hibernate to avoid the inevitable questions such as “So what have you been doing lately?” or “Have you found a job yet?” Just smile and say “I’ve learned more about myself and the job market in the past few months, than I ever thought possible. I’m a free agent in the open job market and feel more prepared than ever to accept my next opportunity.”

It’s important to always stay positive when interacting with other people. No one will offer a recommendation or referral to a person who is negative. Every single person who is working could open a door for you. Don’t just depend on people in your profession or industry. You never know when a person is best friends with someone who could be your next employer!

Attend everything and anything possible in the next few months. Most summer activities draw large crowds of people and many are free like festivals, parades, picnics and local celebrations. If you’re asked to bring a dish, bring JELLO – it’s cheap. Networking is the #1 way to find a new job and summer is the easiest time to network!

If you can’t stand the thought of facing people because you’re frustrated or depressed, try closing your eyes and think of a time that you were the most successful. Where were you? What was the date? What were you doing at the time? How did you feel about yourself?  I want you to relive that day over and over again, until you become that same person. It is that confident person inside of you that you want to introduce to people every chance you get!
