Mindset and focus when looking for a job

One of the most hyped and least understood of the processes of marketing in the employment market is the mindset. People are supposed to have a Good Attitude, a Positive Attitude, and other forms of mental baggage. You'd think all you need to do to get a job was look nice and say the same things as every other candidate.

The reality is determination and focus.

This isn't a game. You don't get jobs by brainwashing yourself with useless information and old approaches to new situations. This is a very different job market to the old routine. If you're a competent person, you have the talents, experience and the skills.

Add determination and focus to talents experience and skills, and you have all the mindset you need.
