Job Search – Some Things You Hold and Some Things You Fold — 28 Comments

  1. There are always new and improved ways to get business, it is good to be on the lookout for them.

  2. Yep.. it is difficult to get a job now a days… i m still searching for my dream job!!!

  3. I may not be looking for a new job, but I’m always looking for new business and it’s a great reminder to not cling to one way of securing that business.

  4. It is hard working in a place controlled by other people. Because things are like your husband’s job, no matter how hard you work, there is always someone who will work harder for less.

  5. Don’t sell short what you do as a SAHM and a homeschool teacher. Both those jobs are incredibly hard and have so many direct applications in the outside workplace.

  6. You were a SAHM which means there is nothing you cannot do! You are used to multi-tasking, working well beyond a job description and staying until the job is done. An employer would be fortunate to have you.

  7. Great tips! I have not had to look for a job for many many years….but I know that each year the kids grow older is a year closer to me going back to work!

  8. I’m not even sure I could answer that question. I think one thing that worries me is that people are working harder and harder for less and less. For example, my husband makes good money, but he’s run ragged every week. If he were to leave it’d take 2-3 people just to do his job. Not sure if that’s something I could let go. My free time and family time are too important to me.

  9. I think I need to let go of the fear that I’m not good enough. I see social media jobs I would love to apply for, but I don’t because I feel I am not good enough.

  10. hold ing on to good work ethics should absolutely be held on to. I am trying to raise my children to fully understand that. When you do a job, do your best at it. Put your best foot forward. Even if it is washing dishes after school. 🙂

  11. Just be confident and realistic when job hunting.

  12. I think the most important thing to let go of if fear. We are afraid to try new things and we are afraid of failure.

  13. I have been very blessed – I had a great 30 yr career and now I have my Dream Job working at our local hospital very part time. Being able to hold and let go is so important to any successful job.

  14. I have not been in the workplace for over 9 years when I quit my job to stay home with my son and now we have 5 little ones and I homeschool. I would imagine if I were to go back to work now I would have a hard time trying to even find a job.

  15. It annoys me so much when people compare jobs! I know a ton of people who need to let go of old work rules and ways!

  16. It is true that some things such as text and email messaging are now vital to a business and worth using instead of how things used to be!

  17. This is so timely and informative love the tips!

    Thanks for sharing

  18. Great tips as it is never easy to job hunt. Just keep your head high and always learn.

  19. That’s such a hard question and one I don’t have to answer for quite sometime.

  20. You provide so many great tips. After being a SAHM for the last 12 years I am finishing up my education and will be entering the work force in or around May. I think letting go of fear itself of the unknown.

How do these ideas work in your world?
