There are an estimated 14M+ people ‘between jobs’ in America right now, and 84% of people who are employed want to find a new job in 2011. That’s a lot of people looking for work.
And yet, many of them will fail to find a new job due to a ‘Crisis of Confidence.’ It’s a form of job search depression that inhibits you from projecting the confidence necessary to find and land a new job.
Here are 3 ways to tell if you have Crisis of Confidence:
- You break a sweat every time you think about going on a job interview.
- You hate when people ask to see your resume for fear they’ll be disappointed or critical.
- You cringe at the thought of networking events.
When we don’t feel good about our professional selves, it’s natural to want avoid the very things that can get us hired!
