It takes more than knowledge and skills to succeed in a job search, transition, or career. Your mental approach to the challenges you’ll be facing may be equally important.

Mindset is now recognized as a critical predictor of success. It’s why some of us thrive in tough times while others struggle. People with the right mindset can handle challenges, rejection, and unexpected change. They are more resilient and innovative. They handle interviews (and rejection) better. They work exceptionally with others.

Psychologists believe that mindset can be understood and adjusted. In this enlightening webinar, you’ll understand what mindset is, how to determine whether yours is most suitable for the challenges you face, and how to think differently to get better results. Your job search will be less frustrating and more rewarding.
