  • 30/09/2014 How to stay positive during your job search Staying positive during your job search is tough, no doubt about that. I recently ran a CV coaching session via Skype with a super talented young man who had spent 12 months applying for jobs and had still not had an offer. While talking to me about how he felt, he completely broke down. He told me he was broken and walked away from his computer screen briefly, while I sat there thousands of miles away feeling momentarily helpless and deeply sad.

And look, I’m not going to deny this absolutely poses a degree of difficulty. But if it were watertight true, surely no one new would ever get a job anywhere ever, right?
