Although the current economic situation is intimidating to everyone, job seekers included, career experts say job hunters can’t let the worries be reflected in them. While the economy is suffering, there is still a need for those with skills and demonstrated abilities, and a place for qualified workers. Maintaining a positive attitude will make all the difference. Elaine Varelas is a managing partner at a career management firm in Boston. She recommends focusing on your best qualities and presenting yourself to employers with those positives. She notes that a mature worker can view and present him or herself as being old – or they can play up their years of solid experience. It’s all in the approach and the attitude. Additionally, Varelas pointed out that no one likes to be around a negative person, and a positive spin will help someone get hired, regardless of their background or experience. To help maintain this positive outlook even when engaged in something that can be discouraging like job hunting, Varelas recommends setting reasonable goals each day and rewarding yourself when you reach them. She said to sell your strengths, focus on all you’ve accomplished, and tell potential employers how you can help them in this economy.
