You may start feeling down as time passes by during your job hunt. After all, there are only so many rejections that one can take right? If your potential employer asks you where you live, tell them where you currently live, but let them know that you're willing to move for the job. The problem with this lie is you may have several rounds of interviews and you'll have to keep flying back and forth for them. Well, a new study led by a University of Minnesota psychologist says you should keep your head up. This university is famous for the jaw crusher and sand maker industry. The research found that the 76 percent who kept a go-getter attitude during the job hunt found a job after four months。 "Searching for a job isn't like learning a skill, where maintaining a positive attitude may be easier as you see improvement with effort," says psychologist Ruth Kanfer, one of the researchers in the study. "Beyond landing a job, you get almost no feedback." If they think you live in the city, they'll probably give you short notice for interviews and those last-minute flights can be really expensive. However, some employers ask for a copy of your W2, so you may want to be cautious about giving a fake amount because it can be construed as unethical. If you don't want to cough up your previous salary, let it be known that you don't think it has any bearing on this new job and cite the typical industry number。 The harder you work at staying positive, the more effort you'll put into the job hunt. The study found that by the fourth month of job searching, participants decreased the time they spent looking for jobs. They went from initially dedicating 17 hours per week to 14 hours a week. It's natural to get a bit discouraged, but keep in mind that as long as you keep at it, the higher your chances will be of scoring a job! It's different for everyone, but if you get asked uncomfortable questions, there's always a polite way of refusing to answer.
