Know one of these people? They hate their jobs, but they aren't looking for a new one.
Why? Because, they tell you, there are No Jobs out there!
I won't argue the job market isn't suffocatingly difficult these days. But it isn't true that there are no jobs.
According to the Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey (JOLTS) program, we had nearly 4 million job openings in the U.S. this past December (2013).
So really--there are jobs! When someone tells you otherwise, tune her out. The most important thing to keep in mind when considering the competition is you must be the most desirable candidate.
There are so many ways to do that. The more you do to set yourself apart from other candidates, the more air there is to breathe. Keep reaching for the top.
Joey: If you ask me, as long as you got this job, you’ve got nothing pushing you to get another one. You need the fear.
