The Niche Movement Founder Kevin O’Connell shared the hard truth about hearing the word “no” in our blog How to Handle Rejection in Business. Now, we present you with our Go or No-Go? Job Search Checklist. Rather than listening to rejection, this checklist flips the script and grants you the power to say “no” to a new job opportunity--giving you the tools to push forward in the right direction on your professional journey.
The Niche Movement’s social media intern, Jaylene Perez, returns to discuss her recent networking trip to New York. A college senior, Jaylene was surprised to learn that landing a job is an organic process. It’s not about the perfect resume or the perfect cover letter. It’s about knowing the right people. Read about Jaylene’s experience chatting with marketing gurus at Bustle, Facebook, and Spotify, and remind yourself of the fundamental networking building blocks.
Being ahead of the game doesn’t necessarily guarantee success so take your time. Explore things that are genuinely interesting to you rather than what you think will sound good when you’re describing your future to a distant relative. Don’t let other people’s expectations of your future determine your own expectations of yourself.
