Jane Falter and I met each other over a cup of coffee about a year ago, and we’ve been good friends since. A plethora of initials follow her name, including ACRW, SPHR, and CPC.

“Are you in a job search? If so, could negative thinking be holding you back?

I’m surprised at the number of clients who tend to focus on what they don’t have, rather than what they do. For example, many worry about age. One client was over sixty; I understood why she’s concerned about finding work. But when another expressed her concerns because she was forty, it became obvious that many obstacles are in our heads.

Instead of focusing on what you don’t have, give more thought on how your perceived negative could be a positive—to the right employer.”

“Are you looking for a job? Then, don’t forget LinkedIn. It’s the place for professional networking. In fact, many recruiters and companies use LinkedIn to find candidates instead of placing openings on Monster, Indeed, and other sites. Post your profile, but also network to make the most of this important site. Make LinkedIn a part of your career toolbox.”

“Create a “Me” file. In it, place copies of appreciation letters/cards, testimonies, and bits of papers that remind you of your accomplishments. You’ll then have all the information you need for filling out your next performance review, creating your resume, developing goals, asking for a raise, and most importantly boosting your ego when you’re feeling down.”
