If you follow the information contained in this article, have belief in God and yourself, you will land your dream Job sooner than later.

1. Thou Shall have a Career Goal
It is common to hear Job seekers say “I want just any job, I am tired of doing nothing, any……”. It is important that you have a Career goal in mind.

Interpret Your Reality Positively

Image
A whole lot of people are still trapped living the life that they don't desire because they keep interpreting their realities the wrong way. If you are a person used to interpreting whatever happens to you from a negative perspective, it will be difficult for you to succeed.

We see more of what we pay attention to. This is a natural law whose effects are prevalent in today's world.

Take for example: Two people went for a job interview and the both of them fails. One of them interprets his failure to mean; "I'm not good enough. I am destined to fail. I am not intelligent enough to pass such an interview." Or even things like; "I knew there was no point going for the interview, they have already selected their candidates and  I was there for formality sake."
