Your Tango, March 10, 2017 —

It’s hard, but YOU GOT THIS.

Finding a new job can be hard. Trust me, I get it. And once you find a new job, it can take some time to get comfortable in a new environment and get to know your colleagues.

But it’s also exciting getting a new job. This is something you’ve been working hard for and all of that hard work is FINALLY paying off.

We all know how difficult it can be to find a job, so when that day comes and you can start preparing for this new chapter in your life, you definitely deserve a pat on the back for all your effort.


Unfortunately, it isn’t always easy to stay positive during your job search. It can feel like you’re not making any progress whatsoever, or that no matter what you do, you’re not getting any feedback from recruiters and companies. We have ALL been in this situation before, and believe me, it’s frustrating.

But what makes this stress feel so much worse is letting yourself get sucked into the negative mindset that you’ll NEVER find a new job.

You start telling yourself you’re not good enough to get a job you like, or that you don’t deserve the happiness this new job will bring you. I know it sounds a little dramatic, but our thoughts can make us feel worse when we’re feeling low.

Having a good support system is one way to keep your chin up when job searching isn’t going your way.

Whether that means having people who have already been in your situation give you tips on how to network and search for jobs, or just someone who acknowledges all the hard work you’re putting into your search, every little bit of support helps.

But keeping you motivated doesn’t stop there. In fact, YOU can be your own source of motivation and inspiration, too. How? By reading inspirational quotes for a new job.

It almost sounds like a no-brainer, but you’d be surprised how many of us feel like motivational quotes don’t work without even trying them.

Start with the inspirational quotes below and practice reading or saying them to yourself every morning. They’ll help keep you focused on your goals and keep your spirits up as you look for a new job.
