Being Thankful

Thanksgiving is about being thankful for the bounty we have. But if you're searching for a job, you may feel that the glass is half empty rather than bountiful. Hone your attitude so that it brings abundance. When someone asks how your search is going, answer, "It's a challenge but I'm advancing in it. I'm looking for contacts in X companies so I can research whether we'd be a good fit. I'm not going to hit them up for a job, just information."


Go to parties and events where you can meet new people. You'll probably land your next job not through those you know, but from whom they know. Use the same refrain of wanting to explore companies through new contacts. A positive approach will make others want to refer you to their contacts, helping you advance in your search.


Best wishes for an abundant holiday.
