This course will discuss the different types of motivation and strategies for maintaining that motivation during your Job Search and how to develop organisational systems that work best with your style, and ways in which to troubleshoot your search. When you’ve been on the job hunt for a while, every rejection letter can feel a bit soul-crushing. Hearing nothing at all can create just as much job-search frustration, especially when you’ve gone to great lengths to tailor your applications to each position.
But while it’s only natural to feel job-search frustration when things aren’t going as planned, maintaining a positive outlook can help you become more resilient, which means you’ll be better able to bounce back from negative events and regulate our emotions. This course will of course teach you how to maintain a positive attitude.
