You’re sitting by the phone waiting for that call. That one special call that will change your life, or at least change your current financial situation.
It feels a little like the guy or girl waiting for a call on Friday or Saturday night, that never comes. It’s frustrating and sometimes depressing. “Why aren’t they calling back? Was it something I did or said?”
You can run that question over in your mind a million times and it won’t make it better. These days it’s not likely that you’ll get a call if you’re not right for the job. There just isn’t enough time at the end of the day to call everyone back.
According to career experts, quite often the reason you didn’t get a call back is because you applied in a general way to a job opening where they needed someone specific.
Instead of trying to fit into a position where you don’t really belong, try going after exactly what it is you’re perfect for and are passionate about. Instead of scouring the job boards for any ‘ole job, try targeting just the places you really want to work. Sometimes simply by having total passion for the job, and having the right training, you stand a better chance.
