Job Search ExcusesYou are at the point of your career where nothing seems to be going right, you feel that you are doing your best and yet that is still not enough. Are you really doing your best or perhaps making excuses for failing to get hired.

This is a look at some of the terrible reasons of job seekers for failing their job search:

I don’t have time – Probably the worst excuse for both exercising and job search. A lot of people say they don’t have time to find a new job and would rather stick it out with a job they hate yet still find a way to watch their favorite show or shopping. You will always have time to do your search, it’s only a matter of priority. If you try devoting your time to your search for a set amount of time every day you will find the job you want.

No one gives second chances anymore – You made a mistake and have been feeling the consequences of that misjudgment in your career for a while now. When you feel down, try taking a break to clear your mind and emotions. Surround yourself with positive people who can help you regain positivity.

I can’t do it on my own – No one should be doing things own their own. Ever heard of the saying “two heads are better than one” ask for a friend’s help for advice, get a copy of the hundreds of books available ready with valuable information, or search the internet for resources. There are a lot of ways you can get help and not do the search on your own.

Don’t let yourself be enslaved by negative emotions. You have a right to feel happy and be successful. Don’t let excuses restrain you from achieving your potential. You might not succeed today, tomorrow, or the next week but if you continue striving your efforts will bear fruit one day.
