If you're #jobhunting and feel like you're hitting brickwall after another, dont give up. It's a tough market, I had decade of #productmanagement experience but the ideal role took a while to land & even had rescinded offers in btw 🤷🏾‍♀️ #crazyfolks

A few top of mind thoughts...
1. Network - don't be needy, this is about building relationships. They might not know of an open role, but their contact might! Check in on folks regularly too...
2. Own your job hunting strategy. Some people will apply to loads, others will be selective. The right approach depends on where in your career you are & how specialised your skillset/ambition is too (debateable)

I am #grateful for the opportunity given by #IWS_Network to share my story, struggles and success in the voices without frontiers (VWF).
My name is Betelhem, most people call me Betty and I prefer it that way. I was born 27 years ago to a young couple in AddisAbeba, the capital of #Ethiopia. #IWSVoices 1/n Image
My mom and me rather look like sisters. Despite being a teenager when she got me, she sacrificed her whole life to raise me up. She made sure I had the best #education possible. I am forever grateful to my mom sis & do everything to make her and God #proud. #IWSVoices 2/n Image

I've been helping few friends/connections finding a new job in past few months and having changed a job myself before 3 months, I thought of jotting down my suggestions on #jobhunting. Here are 10 points that helped me immensely. #ReflectionThreads #Thread 👇
1/ Remember if you apply to 100 roles, you will receive a reply from 15 places, interviews from probably 5 and if you're lucky - then an offer from 2-3 places. So, #DoNotGiveUp - and APPLY at as many places as you can.
2/ You don't need to check EVERY criteria from list. As long as you're meeting 60% of the list, give it a shot! You never know which of your skill sets can compensate for the missing ones or sometimes the role CAN be changed just to suit your profile better. #NothingIsImpossible

My first months in Canada were rocky to say the least. Had a lot of #depression episodes, felt like giving up & didn’t know where to turn for help or how to ask for help. In retrospect, It was a lack of professional & social support system. I wish I knew #IWS by then!

Months went by before I realized I should motivate myself & be grateful for the #chance I've been given! After a year, I returned back to "normal", my old, happy and motivated self. I was #thrilled to wear the toga on my graduation, no togas in #Dutch graduations! #IWSVoices Image
I was graduated now what? Visited many jobfairs and went to resume workshops. Still couldn't land a scientific job. Worked as customer service agent and inventory control asistant at Cirque du Soleil & David's Tea resp. The job quest continues. #IWSVoices #jobhunting #polyvalent Image
