The current economy isn't much fun. With the official unemployment rate over 9% and the true unemployment rate possibly double that, it's hard to feel confident when you set out to find a new job.
Unfortunately, lack of confidence could be the very thing that prevents you from landing the job you want.
It's human nature to want to associate with – and hire – people who are upbeat and positive. No one wants to be around others who are down in the dumps. We might feel sorry for them, but we still want to get away.
So – in order to find employment, you need a positive attitude. You need to walk into an interview feeling confident that YOU are the best person for the job. Then you need to convey that confidence to the employer.
If you're thinking "They have 200 applicants, why should they choose me?" then they probably won't choose you.
Unemployment can cause a host of negative emotions, all of which work against you as you try to find new (or better) employment.
