Cast a Wide Net

Wherever you go, there you are, right?

That being said, can you be in two places at the same time?  Or three?  Or fifty????  Probably not, if you think conventionally.  However, if you just realize that every day you meet people.  Whether at the grocery store, gas station, post office, hospital or wherever.  Every person you meet is an opportunity to make a connection; to learn about them, and to share about yourself.  When you are looking for a job, it is important to get the word out to everyone you meet.  I don’t mean just run up to perfect (and not-so-perfect) strangers and say, “HEY!  I need a job.  Can you help me?”  But, you can briefly mention in it as a part of your conversation with that person.   Likewise, if they are looking for a job, or a new car, or a restaurant, they will ask you!  And you will do your best to help them get their answer.  We all do that for each other.  Or, at least most of us do!  So, know that when you tell someone you are looking for a new job or career, they are taking that information with them.  And sharing.  And those they share it with are sharing.  And sharing.  And so on.

Remember that you are never alone.  It just feels that way sometimes.  But, believe me.  Somewhere, someone is helping you.  You just don’t know it!
