2. Stay positive
After a lackluster interview, a moody interviewee sure isnâ€™t going to get the job. First impressions matter. Ruining your chances with a sour attitude is no way to enter the job market.
â€śAttitude is everything,â€ť said Ford Myers, president of Career Potential, a career development company with offices in Haverford and Radnor, Pa. â€śIf you are feeling negative and cynical, it will severely damage your chances. Employers can smell your negativity from a mile away.â€ť
Easier said then done, when the unemployment rate is so high. Despite a tough economy, the key is to change your mindset and remain optimistic, says Mr. Myers, author of â€śGet the Job You Want, Even When No Oneâ€™s Hiring.â€ť
