However, not everyone likes to have things planned out. There are people who relish the excitement of uncertainty or who just like to gamble. If you feel like it’s time to take a risk in your job search, here are a few things you can try.
Share the story your failed business venture – A few years ago, you tried your luck in starting your own business; unfortunately, you weren’t quite ready yet. The venture might not have been a success, but there is no reason to be ashamed of it. Starting a business is a gutsy move, and not everybody has that kind of determination. Any employer wants someone on their team who has the stick-to-itiveness to persevere through any task.
A lesson learned from a weakness – No one wants to reveal shortcomings in front of a potential employer. Still, you can turn it into an opportunity by telling the story of how your moment of weakness has helped you to change for the better.
Showing commitment – Commitment is not necessarily a bad thing, but it can be when you try to fake it. Eventually your facade will be discovered, and your insincerity will be your downfall. If your plan is to show a high level of commitment to a company, save it for the one that you truly want to be a part of.
In gambling, you don’t know what will happen; there are bets you win and bets you lose. Ultimately, it’s up to you to decide whether an opportunity is worth risking or not.
