It is easy to focus on the negative and to let unfortunate circumstances overtake us. We have all been there. Strength, perseverance, and intestinal fortitude won’t show up as a requirement in a job description or as a skill set on a resume; however, we observe these traits daily (and quietly) by those who choose to see their glass half full.
Life is a journey, and the paths we take are part of the adventure. As a recruiter, I have seen the challenges job seekers face. If you are having a bad day, just remember it won’t last forever.
Here are some bad days that had happy endings:
- A candidate printed off their interview itinerary at work, and their manager saw it.
- Someone confided in a coworker that they were interviewing.
- Someone got a call from a recruiter and hung up. The next day, they were “downsized.”
- Someone accepted a position, gave up their apartment, and hit the road to relocate, only to get a frantic call that the company rescinded the offer.
These individuals were having a bad day, but what set them apart is that they saw the glass as half full and showed strength, perseverance, intestinal fortitude, and humility.
