Even the happiest of people have down days. So, if you're a job seeker, you should expect to have your fair share of down days in your job search. I always say, "Conducting a job search is a marathon, not a sprint." And sometimes, you feel the effects! The problem with down days for job seekers is that they effect your ability to find work. Which means the sooner you get over them, the better. In this video, I explain why job seekers need to develop coping techniques to help them "disrupt" their depression. When we develop a set of tools we can use to distract ourselves, we can power through the down days and get back on track. I share tips and ideas from other job seekers to help you consider possible coping techniques for yourself as well. Don't let a bad day hold you back from finding a good job. Watch this video to learn what it takes to fight back.

Hey job seekers! Have you ever seen those folks on the sidewalk of a busy street handing out flyers? They have one tough job. Talk about dealing with rejection!? I don't think a single one of us hasn't seen them in action and thought, "Glad that's not me." And yet, if you are a job seeker who's been working endlessly to send out as many resumes as possible, you are acting just like the flyer distributor. Which means, people are saying, "Glad that's not me," about YOU! In this video, I explain how your effort to blast your credentials to every Tom, Dick, and Harriet is backfiring. Please don't make the classic "quantity instead of quality" mistake so many desperate job seekers are making today. Instead, listen to how a scaled-back, smarter-not-harder job search will get you the respect and results you want and deserve!

One of the best questions you can get at the end of an interview is, "Where else are you interviewing?" It's what we call a "buy signal" and it means the employer is interested in you. Most job seekers make the mistake of either playing down, or over-playing their situation. Both of which lead to you not getting the job. The secret is to have the right balance of confidence and humility in your answer during the interview. Watch my video to learn what to say.

Thank-you letters are designed to do one thing - and one thing only: thank a person who met with you. Unfortunately, many job seekers make the mistake of using the thank-you note as an opportunity to further sell themselves to the hiring team. Watch my video to hear why thank-you notes need to be short and customized in a way that shows you understand how the hiring process works. Otherwise, you could "thank" your way right out of the running!
