1.No one is hiring – The biggest myth that prevents thousands of job seekers from finding a job is thinking that no one is going to hire them in a tough economy. Yes, there are companies that are currently laying off people, but while there are companies that are going down, there are also those which are on the rise.
2.You need to take the first option available – The options are limited, but this does not mean that you need to grab and get stuck with the first opportunity you come across. If you feel the need to pass up on the opportunity, then do so. There will be other opportunities that will come your way.
3.Temporary jobs are bad – Temp jobs are a great way to earn money to keep yourself afloat until you can find a full-time position that you want. There are people who look at these jobs negatively and say that they are a dead end, but you don’t have to see let the negativity keep you down. The fact is, part-time jobs are a great way to find new opportunities for a better job.
4.You need to accept a lower salary – The tough economy may tempt you to accept a lower salary, but don’t let that stop you from negotiating a compensation package that’s best for you and your family. Smart employers understand that they need to pay to get the best people working for them.
5.Great background and experience will get you the job – These two are only part of what employers are looking for in an applicant. It’s good to have the necessary skills and experience for the job, but that alone won’t guarantee you a job; you also need to have the right personality, one that best fits with the company.
Don’t let what others say and believe hold you back. The world of business doesn’t stop; it’s a continuous cycle that never ends. There will always be someone out there who needs help. It’s your job to find that employer and provide the service that they need.
