Overcoming Fear in Your Job Search
Show Notes Chapter Markers

When was the last time you got nervous? We get nervous because we care, and there is a reason why you care so much. Maybe you were playing a sport, a game, having a conversation with someone, delivering a presentation, asking for a raise, going on an interview…the list goes on and on. 

 

Every day, someone reaches out to me, or I see a post about how to control their nerves or overcome their fear in their job search. As mid-career professionals, you may have been out of the game for a while and may feel a little rusty about conducting a job search or how best to leverage yourself in the marketplace. Today, I’ve got a few tips to help you manage those emotions so you can step on the gas and get your job search moving in the right direction.
