How to Stay Motivated in Your Job Search

When you set out on your job search, it's rarely possible to guess how long it will go on for. As time passes, the rejections mount up and the budgets get tighter, it's easy to become disheartened.  This is exactly the time when you need to dust yourself off and put in more hard work than ever. One of the main attributes of a successful job seeker is to stay positive.

Join guest speaker Roger Scales, Community Resource Representative, National Aviation.  Roger works with potential candidates via personal interview regarding attitude, aptitude and motivation for entering into the aviation industry and to outline their potential career path.  He has a B.S. in Communications from Emerson College.
