I was talking to a friend of mine who is currently unemployed and it reminded me a bit about what it is that one needs to make it through this difficult time.
You have to believe that you CAN get a job in this environment in spite of the environment. I said repeatedly during our Cohort, Lynnette and the other instructors mainly rebuilt our confidence.
If you approach your job search with the attitude that nothing you do will make a difference, then you will not find a job. A positive attitude is a must. That follows into your phone and in-person interviews as well.
People are being hired, even people who have been unemployed for a long time. Just decide that you are going to be one of them.
