Job seekers thought of the day;

Staying positive: An important part of job searching because it's easy to get down when you're not hearing back from companies you have applied to work for. However maintaining a positive attitude will help you to sell your skills, experience and personality more effectively. This is because when you are focussing on the positives, i.e. the successes you have had in past jobs and the skills you are able to offer employers, you will be able to sell these aspects more effectively than if you are being down on yourself. So to conclude, think and act in a positive way to ensure the best chance of success!
