You’re not alone. Everyone feels this way whether or not they admit it out loud. Imposter syndrome is real but it doesn’t have to be paralyzing.
When I started my career transition, I had an old school mentality about “job-hopping.” I’d always heard you needed to stay at each job at least 1 – 2 years otherwise, you’d get a bad reputation for being a job-hopper. If you’re willing to take charge of your career, take risks, and move into roles where you’ll grow, you’ll get rewarded both professionally and financially regardless of how much you’re “jumping around.”
Do you know what your WHY is? If you don’t know your why, then you’ll never make the tough (daily) decisions that make your job search successful. Job searching is hard. It’s a lot of work. When you know your WHY, you’ll be motivated to take the right action quickly.
Imagine you lift your head up like you’re waking up from a dream in the morning. If you look around at your current job situation, is this where you want to be? Only YOU can take charge of your career. What choice will you make this year?
Job searching is hard work. Job searching is a job in itself. Be kind to yourself and take breaks as needed. Take time to sharpen the saw in your job search too. Don’t expect a dull blade (old resume or old interview techniques) to chop down a new tree (like a new job).
We can learn through reflection.
During our 2020 year of COVID global pandemic and quarantine, have you been fortunate enough to keep your job or even find a better one? If you’re actively job searching, what have you done to improve your job searching skills?
Getting rejected for the job is a painful part of the job search emotional roller coaster. Learn why it’s not worth it to ask for feedback and what you should do next. Remember, that rejection is redirection!
