Waiting for the Wrong Kind of News

Clients frequently tell me that they are frustrated when they apply for jobs and hear nothing. Or they get upset when they don’t get any word after interviews. My advice is simple: Why do you want to hear that a company doesn’t want to hire you? The only news you should care about is if a company wants to interview you, if they want further interviews, or if they want to make an offer. Any other contact is bad news, which you don’t need. Stay focused on what is most important: Getting hired.
