    • “There  is  a  market  for  my  skills  and  I  will  decide  who  can  buy  them.”  Whether  you  work  at  a  large  company,  a  small  boutique  firm  or  you  freelance,  you  must  believe  in  that  statement.   2  
    • “My  Job  Search  is  a  positive   activity  that  will  be  a  central  part   of  my  life.”   Finding  a  job  and  keeping  a  job  is  a   real  job.  Photo  http://www.sxc.hu/profile/woodsy   3

    • Never  Burn  a  Bridge!  People  will  remember  you.  I’ve  received  business  from  jobs  I  have  resigned  from.    Ever  hear  the  expression  “Have  some  class.”  Well  it  works.   5

    • “I  can  create  an  opportunity  even  if  there  isn’t  an  opening.”  Every  conversation,  every  meeting  is  an  opportunity.  You  must  maintain  that  point  of  view.   8  
    • “I  will  be  more  successful  if  more  people  know  about  my  search.”  • Networking  is  no  joke.  • Tell  everyone  what  job  or  work  you  want.  Don’t  be  shy.  • Join  free  organizations  for  lunches   • RBA   • RBWN   • Chamber  of  Commerce   9
