Can I make a suggestion?
Stop limiting yourself on here and Linkedin.
Connect with people you don’t know.
When I look back on the jobs I had, they were landed on LinkedIn.
I was hired because my manager at the time searched for someone with my skillset and I popped up.
That job was part of my path to lead me here.
Submitting application after application and hearing nothing is terribly draining and leaves you feeling helpless.
You will tell yourself a million false stories as to why no one is getting back to you.
And those stories can wreak havoc on your mental state.
Job seekers, make connections, and have conversations that help you build your professional network.
Take time to learn about other industries.
Every conversation is a step forward creating motion.
Finding a new job is a marathon, not a sprint.
And members, remember what it was like to be a job seeker.
Be the person that makes a difference for someone else.
Check your messages and respond.
Even if you don’t have a job to offer, you might have information that will help them move forward.
And moving forward is what we are all seeking.
Support on another.
It always comes back around.
