Did you ever think your memories could be holding you back from getting a job?
We carry a lot of things around with us every day. We’re not always aware of how the things going on inside our minds affect how we act in the real world.
It helps to stop for a minute and think about how our inner thoughts and that little voice in our heads does not always have our back.
It’s the thing that makes you feel nervous when you go for an interview, or makes you think you aren’t the right person for a job – even though if you asked someone else they’d tell you you’d be totally awesome at it.
What does this have to do with getting a job?
When you are looking for work, there’s a few things you know you need:
- Cover letter
- Job alerts
These are physical things you can check off a list. You can find lots of tips and tricks online to help you with them.
But, there’s also a list of mental and emotional things you need to have:
- Good communication
- Understanding your goals and values
These are a little harder to get because they’re often very personal. It’s not always easy to open up to someone about your insecurities, or to ask for guidance.
