What is your favorite quote?

History has brought us some of the most motivational and inspiring quotes we’ve ever heard. The best quotes, however, are the quotes that can be applied to a variety of people in different situations.   These are the quotes that are often shared and interpreted from generation to generation.  

With that being said, here are a few of the most popular quotes and how they relate to the job search:

“You’re only as old as you feel.”

This popular quote about age is a reminder that age is just a state of mind – you’re only as old as you feel. There are laws against age discrimination in the workplace, and although some corporations may still violate those laws, the most important factor in securing the job is your attitude. Forget your age! Can you do the job? If you attack the job search with a positive attitude, then your age shouldn’t matter.

“The secret to success is doing something you love.”

Chris Gardner used to be a homeless man who dropped his child off at daycare in the morning, put on a suit and took a few classes to learn how to become a stock broker. His diligence, perseverance, determination and hardships, eventually paid off as he’s now a millionaire. In a recent Forbes article, the author states that the best piece of advice he’s ever received from someone was from Chris Gardner. His advice was simply this:

“Find something you love to do so much, you can’t wait for the sun to rise to do it all over again.”

A lot of our clients come to us because they don’t like their jobs and /or are looking for career changes. Although it’s very difficult to turn hobbies into work, you can love what you do and get paid in the process. GetInterviews’ job search services can help.

“You must be the change you wish to see in the world.”

This very popular quote by Ghandi is perfect for job seekers. Are you unhappy about being unemployed? What can you do differently to change your situation?  What can you do to make sure you’re effectively marketing yourself in the job search? If you want to have a strong job search effort, you must change what’s not working. It all starts with you.

“In order to succeed, you must first be willing to fail.”

How many times have you heard this quote? The truth is, everyone fails. In fact, some of the world’s most successful people have failed before they ultimately found success. How would you know how to succeed if you didn’t first fail? The only true failure is when you give up on the job search. Don’t let the unemployment blues get to you! Keep persevering in and learning what you can do to improve your efforts. Remember, you won’t find job success if you give up on the job search.
