How to be Confident in Your Job Search
Everyone has that one job they always wish they could have. Perhaps something is holding you back from yours. Is it not having enough time to apply? Is it thinking you aren’t qualified for it? Maybe it’s that you aren’t confident in your abilities?
Well, we are here to tell you that you can do it! It’s time to get up, put yourself out there, and get that dream job. Being confident in yourself is half the battle. Employers respond very well to confident applicants. Here are some things you can do to project confidence:
1. Be Bold – now is not the time to be shy. Make it seem like you are the best at what you do and that it would be foolish to think otherwise. Average, does not grab attention, but being bold and using selected emphasis does. Try something like, “newsworthy organizational abilities.”
2. Use Absolutes – instead of “one of the best communicators in the office,” say “the best communicator in any office.” Nothing communicates confidence more than saying you are definitively the best at what you do.
3. Include Results – by showing off what you did in previous jobs, employers see the potential for what you could do at a new job. Using hard numbers also really stand out to employers, such as “achieved 45% growth annually.”
If you’re struggling to be confident in your job search, or don’t have the time to look for your dream job, we are here for you. We streamline the process for you so you have to put forth very little effort. We’ll work with you to find the areas of confidence in your professional life and translate them into a positively remarkable resume. There are no excuses as to why you can’t start looking for your dream job right now!
