Don’t be a mindless zombie this Halloween
We all see it on TV in The Walking Dead, in movies such as World War Z and video games such as Dying Light. They are the incarnation of horror: mindless zombies, especially driven by a basic need… brains, flesh and also a new job!
When you are searching for a new role, it’s important to remain focused on the positions that will suit you and the experiences that you have gained
Start by making a simple list, from the beginning with the type of roles that you are interested in or areas you would like to move into such as Warehouse, IT, Science, scaring people on Halloween just to name a few. (we wouldn’t recommend it)
Ensure that you also pick a long-term ongoing goal, you need to see yourself in that position in five years’ time. You can take time to look back on this aim as often as you like to re-assess the direction you are following
Some people over time will lose their focus and can become mindless job zombies. This will result in getting the job that you don’t really want to do, and that’s something we want you not to do.
Meet Dave, he has been applying for roles that don’t suit him or roles that are not at his level of experience because he has become a “mindless” zombie, with the result being disappointment after not being brought forward for an interview. Over time Dave’s zombie-like behaviour can hinder your motivation/drive and lead to a wrong career choice or a negative feeling about the market.
Dave needs to focus on his own abilities and skills that he can bring to a job, search for the positions that he can do and eventually he will get the job he’s been wanting. Dave is now using his IT qualifications/ skills and landed himself a fantastic opportunity working for a corporate computing company.
