Editor's Note

Looking for a job can be an inspiring experience or it can be something dreadful. Whether it is one or the other depends on your personal circumstances, but also on a choice that you make about how you want to approach your career and your future. How committed are you to finding the right job?

If you are unemployed and looking for a job, you may not be in the best state of mind. We acknowledge that you may probably have other worries, but we ask you to make a conscious decision to be upbeat about your prospects. How you feel will reflect on how you present yourself. If you feel desperate inside, that will show and nobody wants to hire or work with someone like that. You have to trust yourself for others to trust you and want to work with you.

If you already have a job, but are looking for another one, you are in a slightly better position, although there must be some level of dissatisfaction which is motivating you to look elsewhere. Things might not go smoothly where you are working, but do not take things for granted. Keep working hard. Do not let your job search affect how you perform at your current place of employment. Once you find a more promising position, try to leave your current job in good terms no matter how you feel inside. Whether you like it or not, we always have a role for what is happening to us. Take part of the blame and leave on a positive note.

We have compiled useful articles and resources to help you in your job search. We hope that you will find the information in this section useful.
