Waiting to hear back from employers could be killing your confidence and you may not even realize it.
You see, the mistakes that most people make and you might be doing this, I don’t know, is that they fixate on the one opportunity, one single opportunity.
And it that opportunity doesn’t turn out, then they get majorly disappointed and their confidence takes a big hit.
But, that right there, is a sign that you’re doing this whole job search thing wrong and you’re playing way too small.
By not learning how to open up more than one door at a time, you’re keeping yourself trapped at the mercy of this one single opportunity that may or may not work out, when you don’t even know that there are better opportunities out there for you if you only knew how to access them.
If you’re able to access them more than one at a time, then the doors start to open for you because you can then get leverage and get more than one job offer at a time.
So, by not learning how to create the opportunities for yourself, you’re keeping yourself stuck and basically moving at a snail’s pace in your job hunt, and wondering why it’s taking you so long. It takes some people months, even years.
The truth is that if this worked, then anyone would be able to apply for the one job that they wanted and get it.
But, we all know that’s not the case.
How do you learn how to create multiple opportunities for yourself and stop fixating on just the one that you got that may or not work out?
You need to start having several different conversations with several different high-level people that will be able to move your career forward.
It comes down to creating your own opportunities instead of competing for those ones with everybody else is after.
Let me ask you, do you really wanna continue to wait to hear back from one potential employerthat may or may not pan out?
Or, do you wanna have at least five more meetings around the corner that might excite you even more?
If this sounds good to you, I’m Natalie Fisher.
