Finding an ideal placement can feel like an endless quest!

If you are looking for work via job platforms, make sure it is likely that you already have an idea of ​​where you want to go, what your ideal job is.

And if by, any chance, your path is still unclear, it is time to back to the basics: take a notebook or a blank sheet of paper and write until you get to your ideal job in mind. 

We believe that many of you have already applied to several work opportunities. Applied, created expectations, dreamed of, received negative feedback – or not received feedback at all.

Our minds are brilliant, and we need to believe in that to reach our ideal. Let’s begin with that. For starters, working on our ideal and imagining ourselves working on it (and being happy) means taking a big step forward.

Often, job interviews are times for you to talk about your soft skills; to be able to achieve that, for instance, show how capable and confident you are: give examples and make connections between past situations and outcomes. Don’t be shy, let all your potential show and demonstrate what you want. 

Well, let’s get right to the point for a successful interview:

First: Stay calm and create a plan to get a better job

Take a deep breath and let’s go!

Second: Picture yourself having a successful interview

Close your eyes and try to create the interview scene in your mind. And, the more you do, the more relaxed you will be. In case of feeling nervous, close your eyes turbulent and fearful thoughts are guided by insecurity. Insist! Do the exercise as many times as necessary, your mind will slowly organize itself.  

Third: Write a script for the  job interview
