They want someone who is excited to learn and grow and will invest themselves in their work.

Try to figure out what it is that they need and you have to offer as a service. If you can’t get into your dream company right now, what is it that you still need to learn to make yourself a more valuable asset? Go to a company that could teach you those skills missing for your dream job.

While you search for your next job, is there anything you can think of that you can do immediately that is fills a need or solves a problem in your community? Examples include sewing clothes, lawn care, pet, house or baby sitting, cleaning, camp counseling, tutoring, YMCA lifeguard, handyman work, driving the elderly or teaching a skill you have out of your home or in someone else’s home.
Use your intuition to guide you and be proactive everyday.

You will learn and grow from all your work experiences, adding skills and expertise for your next job or position.
So don’t worry if you don’t get your dream job, work towards being a kickass employee wherever you are and you will become successful and valued.

Everything you do adds to your life, so choose things that positively add equity to your work experience and resume. You will personally grow and learn marketing, people skills, sales, and money management.

Having a job and making an income will keep your self-esteem higher than not having one. This higher energy and action will help you find your next level of work.

Many of you will most likely have multiple jobs at the same time. You are not alone and this is not a bad thing. You will figure it out as you go. The main thing is that you are making a living while supporting yourself as well as you can, serving your community, and learning and growing.
