Your Job Search & Career: Random Thoughts
- As I wrote on Twitter, you can still make good choices if you are unemployed and looking. You have control and you still have power. Don’t give it away.
- It’s not the worst thing in the world to take a job for money. Just make sure it is enough money to minimize the other inconveniences.
- Be honest about yourself — to yourself. Don’t be the last person in the room to know that you’re lazy, you talk too much, and you’re boring. Nothing emphasizes your flaws more than denial and cluelessness. Acknowledge who you are to yourself and be okay with it. Then focus on the good stuff or seek therapy to discover the good things about yourself.
