  1. Knowing who you are as a person is so crucial to life. I am loving these things we should learn about ourselves.

  2. Great advice! As someone who had been looking for work for sometime and decided to leave the country to pursue dreams, this is a great article to keep hope alive.

  3. Job hunting is probably a least favorite thing for many people. But you are right, there is a lot of self learning to be gained from it.

  4. I’ve never really thought about it this way but you are so right. Thanks for sharing these great and thoughtful tips.

  5. I started job hunting a couple months ago. It is so stressful. Sometimes I want a new job and other times I get so stressed at the idea of hunting I stop. SO thank you for these eye opening tips and discussion.

  6. Great tips. Finding a job is a job, so you definitely need to know yourself in order to present yourself well and get the job that you want

  7. These are excellent tips Janeane. I will share this article with my mentor group of high school and college students. Thanks for sharing this.

  8. Ugh, i went through job hunting for hubby and I years ago and it was not fun. Though like you said, it is nice to learn something about yourself.

  9. I always learn a lot about what skills I have that shouldn’t even go on a resume. Sometimes employers are looking for one specific skill and if you have it, you’re in.

  10. It’s been a while but I cultivated confidence on my last job search. I wanted the job but was ok where I was too. I landed it. That taught me a lot! Now I never sweat my skills or if I don’t get something!

  11. Before I left corporate America I was a FT Recruitment Mgr. I learned how to sharpen my skill and my backbone in those 7 yrs. Filling jobs and finding jobs are very stressful but I also learned how to “think outside of the box”. Thanks for sharing these tips!

  12. Years ago I lost a job that I loved due to cutbacks in the department. I learned that I should have waited longer to take on a new job search, because I was half-heartedly looking for jobs that I didn’t truly want anyway. I was sabotaging my own success.

Tell me what you think.
