job search notes: who will you be today?

In this TED video, Sarah Jones presents eight characters. She likes to explore the invention of the self or selves, and the space amongst/between the selves. "To what extent do we self construct, do we self invent?"




When performing your job search one of the key starting points is determining who you are and what you want to do. During the job search, especially when you don't get an interview, or an acknowledgment of your skills, background, experience as being worthy, the tendency to question oneself arises.

Is this the right thing to do?
Should I really do this?

Wouldn't it be nice to slip into another character as Sarah does so effortlessly!

You have the power, you can define yourself or redefine yourself!

Who will you be today?
