No matter what you are trying to do, you have to take a first step. The first step is always the scariest. Walking in the door of a new school is scary. You have to take that first step. Most likely after you take that step though, you will start finding things that you like about the school.
Moving to a new neighborhood is scary. But when you take the first step of getting to know the neighbors and building new relationships, the scariness goes away. It is the same with many things in life.
Are you frightened by job search?
Many people find changing a job or looking for a job to be tremendously scary. Most of the time, this is caused by not being ready to do the job search correctly.
Your resume is the first step and to make the best first impression you need to carefully craft a compelling value-filled resume to use as the foundation of your job search. Your strategy isn’t the same as your neighbor’s because your career path isn’t the same as your neighbors. You need to write your story in your resume. It is scary because you are responsible for coming up with that story and showcasing your successes in a way to capture hiring manager’s attention.
At the same time, if you view job search as the brink of a new adventure, you will be able to take each step as a challenge and find ways to make it fun.
