Why Job Searching with a positive mindset is more effective than without?
Have you noticed that when you reply “I am looking for a job!” when asked “what are you doing?”, your interlocutor often seems embarrassed, sometime even sorry for you?
To most people job searching calls into negative thoughts, uncomfortable feelings and into something to be avoided if you can.
Is displeasure and sorrow what you anticipate as you enter in your job search journey?
Is it what your relatives fear you will meet in your quest?
At this stage, I would like to advance a hypothesis and see if you could agree with it:
Life has blessed me with 4 job searches so far. 3 of them, I enjoyed a lot.
One was about a career change: it was all about exploring a field I was extremely curious about.
Each application was feeding my hunger for new perspectives
and my thirst for knowledge for the sector I was willing to enter. No need to say that with such a motivation, my job search has been pretty short, and I was hired very quickly.
Another one was occurring because I had relocated abroad. I visited the Netherlands and Belgium at the pace of the invitations to interviews I received. Each interview was a reason for a touristic discovery tour in a new city, I was looking forward to each appointment. The right job crossed my way before I was done with the exploration: there are still parts of the Netherlands that I don’t know!
The third job search was a personal discovery trip: I was not really sure what I was going to do next. I did a lot of research’s, most of them taking me away from employment type of roles. It ended up in one interview which was the revelation: I discovered I wanted to create my own company while I was being interviewed! 3 months after it was live.

Go for a double objective:
– Objective 1: find a job.
– Objective 2: [ articulate here your own enjoyment objective for during your job search ]
In such case, they need to explore what are the groups that will be interesting for them and what are the pre-requisites and access conditions.A few organisations offer an overview of the mastermind groups they host. The Success Alliance does. Meetup is also a good place to identify already formed master mind groups, so is LinkedIn.
Why Job searching with a positive mindset is so important?
Have you ever noticed what happens when you start a day smiling? When you know that you will be successful? When you are truly enjoying what you do?
Job search does not work any differently.
