3 Job Seeker Misfires I See In Struggling Job Seekers

“It never took me this long to find a job…"

I can’t tell you how many times per week I hear this painful phrase.

Too many good people are struggling in a job search…

Here is the thing…when I chat with someone who is struggling, I see three common misfires.

So I have put the misfire in a video … PLUS the solution to fix each misfire.

I ask you to SHARE this video if you find it helpful.

My list is by no means exhaustive. But it’s a start.
