Be Thankful for the Job Search – A Chance to Do Something New


It is wonderful to look at the job search as an opportunity to try something new. Often when people are looking for work, they put one foot in front of the other and do the same thing over and over day after day. Instead, look at the job search as an opportunity to do thing a little differently. If you have been looking for a job without success for an extended period of time. Take today as an opportunity to do things a little differently. Look for work in a different industry or in a different position. When you are on a job search, look in different places.

Almost everyone has heard the expression, “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks.” I disagree with that expression whole-heartedly. I think you can learn something new every day if you try. This attitude should be applied to the job search. Sometimes, it is not possible to find a job in your industry or at the position you are used to working. At those times you can either remain unemployed or you can shake things up and look at your job search as a chance to do something new.

Circumstances may require you to take a job you do not want or to work in an industry not to your liking. Do not be dismayed by this idea. A new industry or a new position may give you the skills, knowledge and experience that will help you when you get back to the industry and position you desire. If you are a person who works because you need the money, time in a different industry or at a different position is not time wasted. It is time well spent if you take the time to gain new knowledge, new experiences and new connections. This is a benefit you can get from being on a job search.

Keep in mind the fact that while you are on a job search, it is a good time to choose to move in a new direction. If there is a particular company, industry or position you always wanted to do, but never did, this is the time to try it. Look at the kind of people who work in your desired industry at your desired position. If you do not have the skills and experience needed to take the time now to do something new, go get the skills and experience you need. The job search is exciting because it is a chance to do new things!

In conclusion, it is wonderful to look at the job search as an opportunity to try something new. So, the question for you this wonderful day is, what are you going to do new today in your job search?

  • I have took my job search as an opportunity to reinvent myself and take a completely new direction and now I am doing something I love.

  • I'm not even looking for a job, but I do always look. I agree you may not always want what you see, but something is usually better than nothing. Theres always a positive.

  • I will going to try this someday when it is ready and when the time is right.

  • As someone who recently was in a job search, I am definitely aware how thankful I am that there are options out there.

  • That sure helps put a positive spin on what might otherwise have been considered very stressful!

  • Thank you for the positive vibes. I am not in search of a job outside home too nor my husband (he has loved his work for many years) but your words of inspiration gives hope of what future might hold. It may be hard to find a job but hey, it gives one a chance to explore skills and expertise.
