Never settle for “anything”

Losing a job or being caught up in one that’s less than ideal can be mentally taxing.

Getting out of the trap of unemployment or less than satisfactory employment can feel like a prison break. I understand the allure of an offer, any offer when you’re desperate to make a move.

However, leaving one bad situation for another is like moving from a maximum security prison to the county jail. While the location changes, you’re still locked up.

When looking to make a move, be specific. What you want to do? Where do you want to do it?

In this economy, some people are willing to do “anything” to keep the bills paid.

I’ve never seen a job advertisement for “anything.”

The more specific you can be, the easier and more focused your job search becomes.

“Anything” never got anyone anywhere.
