Desperation Is Not Attractive

Kent Nolen

Many people seek help with a job search only when they become desperate. For these people, networking and following up on resumes only becomes important when the situation is dire. People know when you are coming from a place of reactive behavior vs. proactive behavior. It's discernible in your voice, your tone and your approach.

Most important, coming from a place of desperation is a confidence killer. It's tough to fake confidence.

For this reason – and many others – I'm regularly advising people to (for example) do the best they can to come from a place of commitment and to seek enduring fulfillment in life and work.

The days of mindlessly sending off subpar resumes and crossing fingers are over. The employment landscape will never be what it was. More importantly, your career and life are worth whatever energy it takes for you to feel in sync.

Today, decide that you are going to manage your job search and your career with a strategy that keeps you in the driver's seat.

Stop desperate behavior. Start today.
