Understanding What Can and What Cannot be Controlled in Job Search

When you are in a job search it’s a personal mission, which makes it different than the business decision that is hiring someone to a fill a position on your team. The very nature of it being personal makes it impossible for for the job seeker to be objective with himself and with evaluating his career and his unique value.

When you start from a place where you do not have a clear understanding of your unique value, it becomes extremely difficult to separate what you can control from what you cannot control and then navigate the challenges both present. In this video, ExecuNet Career Strategist Saundra Botts shares the importance of understanding what you can and what you cannot control in a job search.
