Getting Good at Starting Over

In my last post I talked about frustrations I have had with the job search. Since then I have, in a sense, started over again.

After getting advice from many good people, I’ve come to the realization that I have been doing all of the “right” things to the best of my ability, but I can and need to do more.

One change I need to make is to simply create more. Much more. Ideas flow like water, but translating those ideas into something tangible is a much harder process.

I also need to tighten and refine my “brand.” I know that I am skilled and talented, but communicating that to someone else who doesn’t know me is something I have found to be extremely difficult.

I am learning to see things from the employer’s perspective. I need to figure out how to separate myself from the negative connotations that come with being a Millennial.

I am not a victim of circumstance.
