As a job seeker, you are bound to get frustrated especially if you have been searching for work without any leads for many months. Sometimes, you may be tempted to just give up looking, especially in this tough job market, but that’s a mistake. If you’re a discouraged job seeker, here are inspiring quotations for the discouraged job seeker from the career experts at the Bongo Blog




Are you a discouraged job seeker?

When we are mired in the frustrations that so often accompany a job search, sometimes it helps to step back and regain perspective from great thinkers throughout history.

I hope you’ll find these quotations – from personalities as divergent as Aristotle and Steve Jobs – amusing and motivating.

On Losing Your Job
I didn’t see it then, but it turned out that getting fired from
Apple was the best thing that could have ever happened to me. The heaviness of being successful was replaced by the lightness of being a beginner again, less sure about everything. It freed me to enter one of the most creative periods of my life. Steve Jobs, (1955- ) Co-Founder, Chairman, and CEO of Apple Inc. (fired in 1986; re-hired in 1996), and former CEO of Pixar.

On being qualified

 Theodore Roosevelt, (1858-1919) 26th President of the United States

Arthur Ashe, (1943-1993)
