Coping With Uncertainty in Your Search

Everyone wants to be sure of the important things, and we are uncomfortable with unpredictability.
These natural desires and feelings are heightened during times of stress, such as a job search.

But we all must deal with ghosting, inaccurate or incomplete job descriptions, changes in management or company direction, people failing to do what we expect, and seemingly crazy decisions others make, to name a few vexing situations job seekers face.

At our next WIND South meeting, Fred Nothnagel will present and lead a discussion about how to cope with such unexpected situations without losing your momentum. We look forward to hearing how you have successfully handled uncertainty.
