It’s Worth the Effort

The Difference between winning and losing

I want to encourage those of you out there who are working hard toward a goal. It’s worth the effort! Keep pushing forward and don’t give up. When you point yourself in the right direction, and focus on the right target, your effort is not wasted.

Let me get more specific. For those of you that are are working on a new career direction, keep moving forward. There are great jobs out there to be had. As I write this, I am also processing a new applicant that I recently hired to fill a maintenance position in the Pittsburgh area. What I was offering was a perfect fit for his skills and experience. He had what we needed and we had what he was looking for as well. It was a win for both of us!

I am coaching another individual that has interviewed for two high level positions with great companies. It’s an exciting time for him as well. He is searching for position that needs his skills and experience. The good news is, there are companies looking for good people just like him! If this is your situation, don’t lose heart, and don’t quit. Focus your effort in the right direction and you can find a great new career path.

Both of these individuals have specific areas of expertise. That expertise is valuable to their respective industry. They are both looking for work that is a good fit for their skills, but they also have specific goals. One is looking for greater responsibility and greater income. The other individual is looking for a long-term stable company and is more interested in benefits and location rather than salary. Your goals can be met, and I encourage you to keep moving forward.

So is this your situation? Are you trying to make a career shift? Are you worried that no one will hire you, or that there are no good paying jobs in your area? Don’t give up. Companies are still hiring and looking for the right people. Let me know if you need encouragement. Leave a comment below. I would love to connect. Thanks for reading!
