Job Hunting Tips
First, things first! Know yourself. Does that sound like familiar advice from your family and friends?
It's true! Write down who you are in a convenient form. If that sounds like school, talk into a tape recorder instead. Get a pal or a good friend to either listen to the tape or look over your notes.
Ask that person to pick out the words you have mentioned that relate to skills. Skill words are usually verbs, such as sailed, composed, and designed. You get the picture!
Don't do anything else just yet. Talk to yourself or think about what you have done well in your life. Be proud of yourself. Use this meditating time of a couple of days or even a week to feel really good!
