Are you sifting through job postings and feel like you’re NOT qualified for ANYTHING?
I used to feel the exact.same.way.
Yes, me with an engineering degree, decades of solid work experience, and a track recording of #winning at work.
Job descriptions BAFFLED me. They’re filled with all kinds of corporate gob·ble·dy·gook and gibberish (<< technical terms).
I’d skim the first few lines of a job posting, then click next. After passing on dozens of postings, I felt utterly HOPELESS.
I couldn’t even UNDERSTAND the job posting let alone do the job!
How could I score a job in banking if I didn’t understand 90% of the job requirements?
NEWSFLASH – I was totally qualified. I just didn’t have the right MINDSET.
But mindset can’t magically give you skills or experience so how can mindset get you a job?
The right mindset can help you …
>> Identify and articulate your TRANSFERABLE SKILLS.
>> Craft your pitch to connect the dots so your past EXPERIENCES are relevant for the role you’re targeting.
>> Acknowledge that YOU ARE QUALIFIED for the job even if you don’t have 100% of the “requirements.”
>> Build the confidence you need to OWN YOUR WORTH and negotiate pay based on the value you’re bringing to the team.
Your only limit is your MINDSET. #MindsetMonday
