A negative attitude toward your own education and experience can ruin your career search. For example, you have a law degree from a southern state university law school. You want to practice corporate law in the NE , but you don’t think it is worth a try. I go on record to say that it is worth try. There are many positive factors that overcome negativity such as excellent grades in law school; a recommendation from someone in the NE firm; passing the bar exam of the NE state; interning with the NE firm; or having transferable achievements and transferable clients.
I dreaded my walk/climb today which was an eight times round trip adventure of 150 ft straight up steps and a 150 ft straight up driveway. If I had talked myself out of this adventure I would have missed seeing three Camelias blooming in my yard in September. And I would not have had my have my eight yr old neighbor introduce me to her chocolate labs and tell me her life was in chaos!!
Take courage in your career search and in your life ; step out in uncertain times.
