Your job search is a life changing event filled with many emotions especially at this holiday time. Your normal routine is non-existent. You will consistently be forced out of your comfort zone and you will experience rejection daily. A job search can also be isolating, overwhelming and frustrating when you are not getting the results you anticipated.

Take time today to appreciate who you are and what you have achieved to date. You are the same person who succeeded in the past and you will succeed in your future. Transition is never easy, but it’s important to not identify with setbacks that will occur throughout your job search. Your future employer will be fortunate to have you on their team.

Use this holiday season and reflect on the times you had the highest level of confidence and self-esteem.  Use this holiday to be a period to reflect, renew and re-energize.  Enter 2019 with a spirit and confidence that it will be your best year yet.
