I want to take a minute to talk about the word “unemployed.” If you’re one of the more than 15 million Americans who is unemployed at the moment, I want you to listen up because I want you to stop using that word in your vocabulary from this day forward.
It is a negative word. It is a defeatist word. It sounds definitive and it drags you down and it impacts your job search.
Trust me, I know this to be true.
What I want you to do is to replace it with the term, “between positions” or “between jobs” because that’s really what you are. I recently recorded a new video tutorial on the 10 New Career Rules for 2020 and I can tell you one of them is that, “EVERY job is temporary.” In this day and age, people can have as many as nine careers in their lifetime with an average of three jobs in each one.
