Are you applying for jobs with a “mewly, please-like-me” approach that just isn’t working? Forbes contributor Liz Ryan thinks so.

Ouch!! That hurts, doesn’t it? Instead of skulking away to lick your wounds, think about that pain. Then think of the pain the hiring business is going through, and why they need you.

“If there’s no pain, there’s no new hire,” says Ryan, CEO and founder of Human Workplace. She says we hurt ourselves during the job search, including opening ourselves up to age discrimination, when we make our job pitch about us.

  2. Well, needless to say that to have a desired job you must have the right skills. However, even if you don’t have it now doesn’t mean that you will never get it. I always keep in mind that I can do everything if I really want it. So, it’s necessary to know which skills the profession requires and work on what you already have.
