Job searching can be a long and challenging yet rewarding process. Yet, before the reward comes the overwhelming, discouraging, down-right frustrating phase. The key to being able to go through this phase is by keeping a positive outlook and focus on the prize, that is to get “the job”. Here are ten (10) motivational quotes for job seekers to keep in their back pockets while job searching.
Focus on becoming the best you can be and execute your skills at the highest level. When you project that “I am so good” aura and it is backed by past job performances, others will not be able to ignore you. You build a reputation, you build a personal brand and everyone will know that you provide quality work.
2. Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.
Most people work with only one goal: to earn money. They wake up and perform their daily routine of punching in their cards, doing their jobs as expected, and then punching out, then feeling completely exhausted and empty at the end of the day. If you have a job that you love, you go out of that routine because you enjoy what you do. Your job ceases to be a chore of you love it.
3. Don’t ever give up, the beginning is always the hardest.
Job searching is really hard, especially if you have no prior experience yet. You have a lot of competition and the tension during interview is inevitable. The thing is, the more interviews you’ve been to, the lighter and more confident you’ll feel so don’t get discouraged if your first job interview turns out badly, it’ll get better in time.
4. If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door.
If you don’t come across the opportunity you want, you have to take the initiative to increase your chances of getting that opportunity. Don’t just sit around waiting for it to come knocking on your door. Get up and get your computer keyboard rolling or call out to friends and acquaintances, who knows, they just might have something for you.
5. If “Plan A” didn’t work, the Alphabet has 25 more letters.
Many people think that if they fail at one thing, it’s all over. You have to remember that even if you didn’t achieve at the first try, there is always another way to achieve it. If your Plan A backfires, then make sure you have a Plan B, C and yes, even up to Plan Z handy.
6. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking.
If you haven’t find the right job, keep searching. Do not give up. It’s a big world we are living in and somewhere out there is the right job waiting for you.
7. If you want to be successful, it’s just this simple. Know what you are doing. Love what you are doing. Believe what you are doing.
8. Start Today.

9. Success is when what you do becomes who you are.
10. The expert in anything was once a beginner.
We all start at the beginning. Some may learn faster than others, but that’s not something that should you should take negatively. You get where you’re supposed to be at precisely the time you’re supposed to be there. You have to stop thinking of why you can’t do something and instead, figure out how you’re going to do it. Keep moving!
Best of luck job seekers! Always remember that best things comes to those who get moving!
